Sarongs are colourful, multipurpose fabrics that you can wear comfortably while you are out and about or in the comfort of your own home. They can be used as a long skirt, miniskirt, halter dress, a top, swimwear cover, or even as a head wrap. Wearing a sarong as a halter dress works equally well for a day at the beach or evening cocktails.

  1. 1

    Hold the sarong with the long ends on the top and bottom while the shorter ends are on the sides. Place the sarong behind your back this way as if you were going to dry your back with a towel, holding a top corner in each hand.

  2. 2

    Bring the corners of the sarong around your body to the front. Cross the corners in front of your chest and wrap the corners behind your neck. The material should be snug but not too constricting. Otherwise this may hurt your chest, armpits or neck, making the sarong very uncomfortable to wear.

  3. 3

    Tie the ends in a square knot behind your neck. Make sure the knot is tied tightly so it doesn't untie itself while you are walking around. As an alternate approach, you can secure the material by using a couple of safety pins.
