Why Everyone Needs A Sarong Wardrobe
Quick: You're frantically packing for a last-minute warm-weather getaway. You toss in a selection of bikinis, some sunscreen and ... sarongs. If we could pick one desert island staple, it would be a sarong — infintely versatile and inherently stylish, they're the workhorse of a tropical wardrobe. We're particularly smitten with 1 World Sarongs right now, as their selection of the slinky, wearable cover-ups is beyond: there are florals, tie-dye, tribal, animal prints and more. We love to stock our suitcase with several styles, matching them to our swimsuits, and also always have a few on hand to use as beach blankets (the sand shakes off so easily) and hair wraps, and to stow one in our carry-on to use as a wrap on chilly airplanes.
In a pinch, we've been known to wrap a sarong into a dress for cocktails at sunset — we love the easy, tropical vibe that wearing something so lightweight and carefree lends to our look. There's also nothing better on a blazing hot day when you have to be covered up, but you want the bare minimum against your skin. When you have a sarong in your bag, you always have something to wear.
