Sizzling Sarongs – Accessorize your Swimsuit
When you're headed out to dinner or to a club or a show, you consider every detail of your outfit from your ear earrings to your shoes, but when it comes to going to the beach, many of us simply bust out an old t-shirt and flip-flops to go with our bathing suit. Whether you're wearing a one-piece, a monokini, a tankini or a classic two-piece, you'll feel more confident and beautiful when you accessorize your swimsuit in style.
A matching sarong in a complementary print or solid color is a great way to cover up and dress up your bathing suit; however, many women shy away from sarongs because they're not sure how to wear them. Here are a few of my favorite ways to sport a sizzling sarong.
1. Fold the sarong in half and tie it at the waist with the knot at your hip for a sexy peek at your legs as you walk.
2. Show off a pretty swimsuit bottom by folding your sarong in half and tying it in the front.
3. Turn your sarong into a maxi skirt by folding the top third down and then tying it at the waist in the back. The long skirt is a hot style this season, and this look is great for ladies who feel modest walking through the lobby at the resort.
4. Go for the traditional sarong look by halving it into a triangle instead of a rectangle. Wrap the ends around your waist and tie at the sides. This is a classic beach look that is sure to put you in the mood for a tropical drink.
5. Tie the sarong at your chest after folding it into a rectangle. This will give a tempting peek at the full length of your swimsuit and show off your gams.
6. Create a sexy wrap dress by pulling the sarong across your back. Take the ends around the front of your body and then tie them behind your neck. This look is perfect for those days when you head over to the poolside restaurant for lunch or the tiki bar at happy hour.
7. Mix things up by using an alternative to a knot. Brooches and decorative hair clips can look very beautiful securing a sarong, just be sure you fully catch both layers of fabric to avoid a wardrobe malfunction when you're on the way to the pool or the beach.
Remember: you can purchase a wide variety of sarongs from prints to solids. Don't limit yourself to just the sarongs meant to match your particular swimsuit. Feel free to mix and match pieces just the way you would other items in your wardrobe. There are no rules for how you can wear your sarong, so have fun experimenting with different looks.
