Wraps take on a different tune this summer. They’re colorful, lightweight, and even fashionably versatile! Here are 5 looks you can try with your favorite scarves and wraps at the beach, from chic cover-ups to luau dresses!
The Open Cardi
The open cardigan is another cool way of layering without sweating it out. Choose kimono style wraps, those with big sleeves and wide sides so it doesn’t cling to your skin. Best with lightweight tanks or even your bikinis. Plus style points for fringes.
The Short Skirt
A pareo is hardly a skirt, but on the beach it’s as good as one! Textured designs like with lace or crochet add a great dimension to your bathing suit. Accessorize with bangles and strappy sandals for a complete look.
The Long Skirt
Exhausted your maxi skirt trove over spring? Take a large pareo and tie it around your hips for an instant addition to your wardrobe! With a vintage tee and over denim cutoffs, it’s makes for an instant festival outfit!
No new dress for that luau you want to crash? Your large beach pareo can become an outstanding dress with just the right knotting style. Wrap the pareo around your bikini or tank as you would a towel and cross tie the ends either around your neck (for a haltered look) or just in front for a strapless dress. And the length will of course, depend on the wrap you have on hand. Accessorize with wooden bangles or chunky necklaces!
The Necklace Scarf
In the summer, scarves are not for keeping your necks warm but making them look cool! A lightweight scarf makes a breezy substitute for a necklace. Again, the bolder the print the better!
