How To Tie A Pareo
Pareos, or Tahitian or Cook Island fabric wraps, are stunning. Pareos are similar to sarongs and can be used in many different ways. A pareo can be tied in many different ways. You can tie it like a sarong or tie it into an outfit such as a jacket or dress. Or you can use a buckle to attach it to a skirt. These options are quick and easy and will create a stunning beach look. Below are some examples of how you can style and wear your pareo.
How To Tie A Hawaiian Sarong
Pareos or sarongs make great beach covers. The pareo is a part of many women’s everyday wardrobe in many cultures. Let me show you how to style a pareo and what to do with it when you’re not at the beach.
They can be used as a quick covering, a towel, a picnic blanket, or as a hair scarf. You can use the sarong for so many purposes. Ask the women in India, Southeast Asia, and Africa who have worn them for centuries. While the western version may not be as comfortable, a Sarong is simply a wide swathe of fabric that’s wrapped around the body and tied.
A sarong, when it comes to beachwear, is far easier than a tunic that you have to pull over your head. It’s also far more comfortable than denim cutoffs. You could tie the sarong at your hip by simply knotting two corners. But, for those who want to experiment with new styles, this is how you tie a Sarong in nine different ways.
(Pro tip: If you don’t have enough fabric for a proper knot, you can use a hair tie or a butterfly clip to keep your sarong in its place.
Pareos have a simple design. Many summer outfits can be created from this simple design. How you wrap it will determine how creative. To create a flowing, light and fluid skirt, a long pareo can be tied at your hips. The versatility of a short pashmina-type scarf is its ability to be worn in multiple ways. You can wear it as a scarf around your neck or as a dress. Simply wrap the pareo around your hips until it covers your buttocks. Then tie the ends. You can fold the square style in half and tie it at the sides.
Pareos are versatile pieces of clothing that can be worn as tops for any occasion. This bustier cut is ideal for sunbathing at the beach. This outfit can be worn over a bandeau swimsuit to show off your shoulders. Wrap the pareo around your upper body, and tie a knot between the breasts or on the side. A Tahitian pareo is another option, which has a knot at the shoulder.
This top is sophisticated and sensual, with a front opening that allows for glimpses of your stomach. For a choker effect, fold the sarong in half lengthwise. Wrap it around your neck and wear it as a scarf. The two pieces at the back should be crossed at the shoulder blades. Next, bring the pieces to the front under your arms. The top corners should be tied at the hollow of your chest. Let the remaining two pieces fall to your hips. This will reveal a portion of your belly.
A beach dress is one of many outfits that every woman should have, but the pareo has the advantage that you can wear it in so many different ways. It can be worn at the beach, in town or in the summer as a long elegant dress.
A popular style is a dress wrapped over your neck. It looks fantastic with a neckline or halter-top swimwear. Starting from the rear of the pareo, move the ends to the front to produce this effect. They should be crossed and tied around your collar. The uneven variant of a shoulder knot is beautiful. To make this outfit a personalized evening dress, mix it with stylish strappy sandals or a shawl.
Ways To Tie a Pareo
A ring or a buckle can be used as a fashion embellishment to finish off a pareo. This exotic decorative element, usually made from wood, is used as a fastener. For a fitted gown, place the pareo behind you. If you are making a skirt, place it below your waist. Pass the ends of the pareo to the front by pulling them towards the center. To ensure that you are comfortable, bring the ring as close to your body as possible. Next, wrap each piece around the sides and tie them behind your back at the level of your kidneys or shoulder blades. For a draped effect, leave the fabric a little loose.
