Sarongs are great accessories that provide a little extra coverage during bathing suit season. These simple yet elegant lengths of fabric tie around the waist over a swimsuit, making them a fashionable alternative to wrapping oneself with a beach towel.
Dotti makes classic sarongs in both regular and plus sizes. Designed to self-tie, this wraparound skirt is also known as a pareo. It features a self-tie closure at the waist and is made from semi-sheer fabric. These cover-ups feature rounded hems and hit the legs at mid-calf. Aside from wearing the pareo or sarong around the waist, consider tying it across the bust for a chic alternative that provides even more coverage. Pair it with a vibrant swimsuit that can show through the sheer fabric, and finish the look with a casual pair of flip-flops or beach sandals.
Women wanting something a little more eye-catching can choose a fringed pareo, such as the ones offered by Jantzen. These beautiful printed sarongs are enhanced with studded accents and beaded fringe details at the hem that make them truly special.
Some bathing suits incorporate the sarong into their design. Swim Solutions offers a one-piece swimsuit that features a mock sarong skirt. Short and sassy, this skirt falls over an attached brief and provides full bottom coverage that flatters any figure. This type of swimsuit has additional features like ruched detailing at the bust, non-removable soft cups, comfortable straps, and a flattering surplice neckline. Although the swimsuit itself draws inspiration from the sarong in its overall design, you can still pair it with a separate pareo for additional coverage.
Anne Cole designs pareos with matching bathing suits in mind, so a sheer sarong with an exotic floral print border complements the designer’s coordinating swimsuit. This makes it easier than ever to achieve a flawless look that will last all season long.
