4 ways to wear your pareo
Yes, a pareo is an excellent beach cover up. But did you know it can be so much more?
From a sexy halter dress to a bohemian maxi skirt; once you master a few different styles, you can travel so much more lightly! Here are our 4 different ways to ‘tie the knot’. But remember, the coolest looks are created by just trying different things in front of the mirror. Have fun!
1 – halter dress with a twist
Hold the pareo behind your body, and wrap the ends under your armpits back to front. Twist the ends together, one over the other, then fasten at the base of the neck for a gorgeous halter silhouette.
2 – maxi wrap skirt
This one’s super easy: wrap around the waist, tie and go!
3 – halter dress with a knot
Start out the same way as with the ‘Halter dress with a twist’, except this time you tie a knot right above your cleavage, and take the remaining straps to make a final knot at the nape of your neck.
4 – strapless or tube dress
Take your pareo and position it behind you. Pull the ends together in the front or to the side and tie with a ﬂirty bow.

Governed by NO ONE
Flame-haired, brave-hearted and always dressed to dazzle, Elizabeth the First, also known as England’s ‘Virgin Queen’, is one of the most unforgettable women in history. Her glorious reign is known as The Golden Age ~ a period that saw the birth of Shakespeare, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the emergence of England as a world power. It lasted almost 45 years; Elizabeth’s legacy as a feminist icon however, has already spanned nearly 5 centuries. “My sex cannot diminish my prestige.”
Only 11 days after he beheaded his second wife (the flamboyant Anne Boleyn), King Henry VIII married a pale, fair-haired maiden called Jane Seymour. Who exactly was this girl, and what had made the king so besotted with her? To this day, historians don’t quite know what to make of her.
