How to Layer Up for Fall

The warm and cozy weather of Fall is a great time to fall in love again. It's a contemplative season of change and a beautiful reminder for us to learn to let go. As we ease away from Summer to welcome colder days and feel the chilly breeze on skin, it's time to enjoy the art of layering. Take out your favorite texture, print and pattern materials, the best season to get dressed with a touch of creativity is here. Layering is one of the best ways to get dressed and it works for both men and women plus all body types and shapes. Using scarves or sarongs, anyone from all walks of life can have fun with the freedom of layering. From inner, middle and outer layer, you can style your scarves in so many different ways to match your mood for the season.

Want to have fun layering up with scarves? Too easy! You can also layer with sarongs if you want more fabric to experiment with. We have compiled scarf looks we love so you get 10 easy ideas to pull off this season:

1) Classy Neck-Kerchief


Gentle and pretty, a simple knot and bow around the neck works with any outfit be it pants or skirt or dress.

 2) Waist Belt


Not only do you get to wear the coolest belt in town but you get to define your waist line and have an outfit that flatters your body line.

3) Turbanista Head Wrap


Inspired by the great mamas of African culture, the turban look is great for bad hair days or for cold windy days to keep your scalp and head warm wrapped up in your favorite scarf fabric and print.

4) The Neck Loop

Black is always a good idea. Shop here.
This style literally takes 2 seconds of your life to look amazing! From casual to night wear, the neck loop works with jeans or a pretty dress or whatever your heart pleases.

5) Throw Over Shawl

Guys! Tuck any colored scarves into your coat or jacket for that extra warmth. Be it at the movies or when you're out taking an evening stroll, this relaxed look is also a great way flaunt your favorite scarf designs. 

6) DIY Casual Top


Turn your scarves or half sarong or full sarong to a one of a kind top matched with jeans or pants. Whether it's a tube or toga or halter style, put on a belt for more definition and to keep your scarf top in place. 

7) Statement Neck Warmer

From the smallest to bigger fabric, this neck warmer style works best with loud and vibrant prints. If you were thinking to throw out your grandma's scarf, think again! Vintage patterns work wonders with this style. 

8) Hat Decor


If you been wearing your hat far too often these days, switch it up and make it as if it's a brand new hat by tying your favorite scarves around it. The flowy touch to your hat will make you look so glamorous!

9) Cool Sash

This effortless style is great for lazy weekends or for a quick run to the grocery store with your family. It keeps you warm and makes you look fashionable without even trying hard. 

10) Comfy Blanket Scarf


Some days the wind gets really cold and all we really want to do is to stay in bed. With the blanket scarf, you get to move around with so much comfort and ease as though you're tucked in bed. How amazing is that?


You know what they always say, scarves NEVER goes out of style, no matter what print and patterns you may own you can only always count on your scarves to be there for you through thick and thin. They are amazingly versatile and functional plus you get to use your imagination and use creativity to find your own style. Give these looks a try and let us know how it worked out for you.

Spooky Sarong Tricks for a Killer Halloween

Planning a do-it-yourself kind of Halloween? Look no further. With just a couple of sarongs, you get to be the coolest kid on the block. If you want to be different for this holiday season in the most affordable and easiest way possible, you are in for a treat. From costumes to decor ideas, here are sarong tricks and spooky ways you need to know for Halloween:

1) Get Your Capes On


The easiest costume to pull off with any colored sarong. You can use capes and cloaks for so many different types of scary costumes such as a witch, vampire, dead superhero, fairy, zombie, magician, elf and so much more.

2) My Sarong Brings all Ghosts to the Yard




Want to have the spookiest yard in the neighborhood? Flowy and drapey, there's no better way to create ghost and spirit like formations than with white sarongs. Be it indoor or outdoor, you can turn scary characters to live with a dash of imagination. For an even cooler effect, put some fairy lights into the fillings so your characters can shine boo-tifully at night.

3) Light it Up


When night falls, create an eerie effect with dimmed lighting. Using a white or yellow light bulb, you can cover any light source with a white, red, green or any suitable sarong color to set a dark and haunting kind of mood.

4) That Creepy Table



Be it black, orange or dark purple - throw a solid color sarong over any table to create a Halloween themed dining area for your friends and family. Use cool party props to accessorize and give your table setting an edge.

5) Animal Spirit


From Caveman, Tarzan to Cat Woman and whatever your mind imagines, bring out your wild and feisty persona by dressing up with animal print costumes.

6) Horrific Photo Booths



Capture the moments by setting up a photo booth for your Halloween parties. Using sarong colors like red, black or white as a back drop together with any scary props, your friends and family get to have fun and take awesome photos dressed in their costumes.


What do you think? If you have any more sarong tricks and want to share your ideas, we would love to hear from you!

Have a Spooktacular Hallooween, folks!

Must Watch Videos to Learn How to Tie A Sarong (for Women)

  1. ‘7 New Ways to Tie Your Sarong This Weekend’ by PopSugar
Fresh styles for the weekend for those who want to explore both short and long sarong styles. Modeled by Allison Mcnamara, our favorite style is the dress with a little bit of waist definition that is really flattering to the body. For those who like shorter styles, you can turn your full sized sarongs to a short skirt.



Using a combination of fringeless and solid color sarong followed by a patterned and fringed sarong, we also like the harem jumpsuit look especially that added detail of having the fringe or tassels hang loose in front, it’s so cute!

*Get the look here:
2) ‘10 Simple Ways to Tie a Sarong’ by Harper’s Bazaar

True enough when they say, 'you'll never look at a single piece of cloth the same way'. Firstly, we got to compliment the quality of production because we totally love the mood and feel throughout this tutorial, it’s so chic and cool.


Our favorite sarong style is the ‘chic cape’ which is a long kimono that makes a lovely swimsuit cover when you’re strolling by the pool at a resort. A second sarong style to pay attention to because it’s unique and not many people have thought about it, turning your favorite sarongs to a crop top. Wear it with a bathing suit or a pair of shorts or long pants after having a day out in the beach. We also like that they demonstrated and eye catching and tasteful range of color palettes to show how you can match your swimsuit colors with different sarong colors and patterns.

*Get the look here:
3) ‘Tie a Pareu’ by The Coconet TV

This video makes us want to book a ticket to Hawaii like yesterday! We love the angle of seeing a modern Polynesian woman sharing a staple part of an Island woman’s wardrobe which is the Pareu aka. lavalava aka. sarong. The best thing about this video (besides the beautiful Hawaiian music and setting!) is they show how to tie sarong styles using sarong ties. It's the perfect fashion accessory to pair with your sarongs so you can tie and secure your sarongs easily.


*Get the look with our collection:
4) '12 Sexiest Ways to Tie a Sarong' by Cosmopolitan

‘No other single piece of clothing allows you to transform your look in so many ways.’ That is exactly what they try to show in the video. Our favorite is the number 10 style, where you have a one shoulder long or short sarong dress. Depending on your body type, this style may be suitable for certain body types and not others, it’s really all about experimenting and trying it out to see what works for you.


Sheer sarongs are sexy, sensual and feels heavenly on your skin. We love that they used an ocean inspired color sarong for this tutorial with a combination of blue, green and turquoise.

*Get the look here at a great value price:
5) 'Traveler Obsession: 3 Sarongs, 3 Ways' by Condé Nast Traveler

Short, easy and straight forward tutorial to demonstrate how 'a beach cover up can become a surprisingly sophisticated piece if you know how to knot it'. Our favorite is the second style which is a halter style knee length short dress. It’s very flattering for those who want that extra boost on the chest and not to mention refine one's body shape by tying a knot around the waist.



Above all, we are really obsessed by the way she used a larger sized sarong and tie dye pattern to demonstrate the sarong styles. It's all 'about that dynamism: the beauty of a great sarong is in the creativity it affords you'.

*Get the look here:
6) 'Trendy Sarong Styles' by Brisa G. A. Silva 

Made in Brazil which got us day dreaming about the beaches of Rio de Janeiro and samba music of Carnival. We have to admit our Portugese vocabulary is as good as 'Oi' and 'Caipirinha', so we're using our body language to put our hands together for these awesome tutorials.




We are very impressed by this beautiful Brazilian woman who really knows how to style her sarong. We can learn a lot from her and so if you're looking for something unique and truly creative, you got to check her out on Instagram. Thank you and obrigada, @brisagasilva!

The possibilities are truly endless and it makes us very happy to see more and more creative videos being made by fellow sarong lovers from all around the world. If you're looking for more ideas, follow our weekly updates here:

How to Wear a Sarong as a Scarf


Images via Pinterest

Do you like to wear your sarongs all year round? 

Seasons may change but sarongs are eternal. For this fall, learn how to turn your summer beach cover up to a head or neck wrap at the city. Sarong wraps are all about convenience and fashion depending on your personal style. We're all about creativity and so here are some ideas on how you can use a sarong or half sarong as a scarf:

Clothing - from Summer cover ups to Fall fashion

Did you know that your beach skirt or sarong dress can be a fashion statement? Try to mix and match any bright colorful sarong with solid colored clothing like black, white or blue jeans, throw it over your neck and wear it like a shawl:

Thanks to the versatility of a sarong, it has the same function as a scarf where you can wear it as a sash, bandeau top or vest. As Coco Chanel once said, 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening'. We like to think of sarongs as a way of life and we have been observing how it has evolved in the Western world. Here's a cool idea on how you can tie a scarf as a vest:

Flaunt your personality by wearing your favorite sarong as a bandeau scarf top, you can pair it with a high waist skirt or any pants or jeans along with sneakers or wedges, depending on your style and mood. Here's an inspiration for casual city wear:

For those casual days or lazy weekends, you can stay fashionable even in your most comfortable outfit just by throwing your scarves over your shoulders and let it hang loose for that relaxed vibe:

Breezy days - the best way to manage your hair

Easy, flattering and fashionable - there's no better way to keep your hair in place during the season. Last Summer we talked about different hairstyles with scarves to play around with. Fall is a wonderful time to jazz it up and see how you can pull off fresh hairstyles to fit a different climate. We like a woman who can pull off that retro style where you tie your hair back neatly with a little front volume. We recommend a silk or half sarong to get this vintage look:

You can also get that bohemian look when you tie your sarong as a head turban. The more material you have, the more freedom to experiment with this style! Be it with a half or full sarong, it's a great excuse for those bad hair days and a great way to keep your scalp and ears warm for those windy days:

Hand me down - wrapping your children with love

Did you ever want to see how adorable your kid would look in a little sarong skirt or dress? Some of our customers have been using our scarves or half sarong collection to wrap their children as they would for an adult because they make a perfect fit. Now that we have launched a collection of kids sarongs for your little ones, you can buy them their own sarong to use. More than just looking cute, sarong brings them a lot of happiness. Try it out with your children and let us know how they feel about it!

6 Ways to Wear a Sarong as a Beach Cover Up

Since it's bikini and swimwear season, it's time to share a few quick ideas on how to cover up at the beach. As much as I like to flaunt my body, there are days when I'd like to stay modest and fashionable at the same time.


It's also common to be in situations where you want to feel comfortable by covering up. Maybe I ate too much pasta for lunch, call it post-holiday dips but we're all a little guilty of those extra snacks we'd sneak in while on vacation. You may even find yourself having to cover up when you're traveling on an island or resort within a conservative society where bikinis aren't really a norm. Maybe you took too much sun and protecting your skin from getting burnt calls for a much needed cover up around your shoulders or back. Or if you're a beach nudist fan then you'd know that you'd have to cover up until you get to a safe nude beach zone.

Whatever your reasons may be, here are my top 6 favorite ways cover up while I'm basking under the sun at the beach:
1)

An all time favorite classic Hawaiian look, it's become the most natural and easiest way for me to wrap up after a day at the beach. Just grab the two corner ends and tie them both into a double knot just below your navel. It's the best look on the days that I decide to get daring and wear a Brazilian style bikini!

2)

I like to cover up with a short skirt especially on a hot day out or when I spontaneously decide to go for a beach walk after lazing about on sand. The trick to get this look with a full sarong is by folding your cloth to half. Then grab both corner ends and tie it the same way as you do with a long wrap skirt. 

3)

Another easy and practical way to cover up especially when I want to show off my golden shoulders! Take both corner ends and tie a double knot in between your breasts or at either side. Make sure you fasten the knot tightly or you'll end up with a loose dress that falls off every time you move. Depending on the sarong design, I would accessorize (Sarong tie, necklace, earrings & wedges) and wear this for a casual outing.

4) 

Another classic favorite, I like this style because it stays on properly and drapes beautifully at the center and could almost pass off as a real dress. Take both corner ends, twist it at the front and then tie a double knot at the back of your neck.

5) 

Bringing sexy back - a new style that I recently discovered and adore because it's unique, flattering and fashionable! Hold out your sarong in a vertical position, take both ends of the top side and tie a double knot behind your neck so that it drapes around your chest. Then take both sides at waist level and tie a double knot just above your butt. This look is great because it could even pass off as a formal dress if you wore an inner piece like shorts.

6)

Another cool new look that works well for both normal or plus size sarongs. After all, the more material you have the more space you have to get creative. Wrap the sarong around your body horizontally like a towel, make sure both corner ends are positioned to the side of your body. Take both ends, cross over below your armpits. Bring the ends above your shoulders, fasten, twist it around and tie a double knot at the top of your shoulders.

These styles are a few ideas in a nutshell while there are actually so many more different ways to cover up at the beach. I think I'm about to hit the peak of my career as a sarong model with these pictures, haha. Wrapping up in a sarong is as fun as making home made tortillas! 

So.. what's your favorite way to wear a sarong?
