Did you know that a simple sarong can be your unsung hero on holiday?
Beach Sarongs as the Holiday Hero
A sarong is a stylish and versatile piece of beachwear. It can be a skirt, a beach dress, or even a pair of trousers – not to mention a scarf, shawl, or headscarf. But the sarong is even more versatile than most people give it credit for, and not all of its uses involve wearing it. Here are five ways you can put your favourite sarongs to good use when you aren't actually wearing them:
Use it as a Light Towel
In a pinch, a sarong can come in handy as a light towel. True, it probably won't get you from soaking wet to bone dry, but if you're enjoying the beach and wearing a sarong you're probably in a climate that will do most of the drying work. If you just want to hurry things along, a sarong will do great and the fine, thin fabric will soon dry out ready to wear again. Alternatively, you could just use it in place of a towel to lie on.
Improvise a Picnic Blanket
Another simple but effective use for a sarong is an improvised picnic blanket. There are few things more pleasant than a nice picnic on the beach, but sand gets everywhere and it's usually best to put as many barriers between beach and food as possible. Simply spread out your sarong, and you will find it's as effective as any purpose-made blanket – and probably a lot prettier.
