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.

Have a look at our pareos and wear it your way!
