How To: Make a Sarong from a Scarf

By  |  3 Comments

I’m all about pieces that multi-task especially in the most unexpected of ways. That’s why I carry a lightweight scarf  to double as a sarong for every beach vacation!




A scarf has obvious benefits during travel – when I’m leaving a cold climate it keeps me warm and I can use it as a blanket on the plane but it really shows its worth once I get to the beach!


Carrying a lightweight scarf instead of bulkier cover-ups makes packing easier. They fold into the tiniest squares and can be stuffed into my luggage no matter how small.





Want to try this trick? Find a lightweight scarf that goes well with your bathing suit. I chose dark green to go with my green/white/black bikini. Tie it once at the top, then take the hanging bottom ends to create a secure double knot.

    super clever! This is something I always forget but could use instead of putting back on clothes over the wet bathingsuit to go eat. lol

    • Yes! I HATE having to put on shorts after a swim and I love a cute coverup but scarves are so much easier!!
