Summer is winding down but the warm weather is still here and there is no better time than now to enjoy the beautiful beach weather. A sarong or pareo is the essence of casual summer wear and perfect for the warm tropical weather. What is the difference between a sarong and pareo?
A sarong is a piece of fabric usually between 4-5 foot in length that is worn as a loose fitting skirt or dress. The name sarong comes from the Malay word “sarung” meaning sheath or covering. These fabrics are often dyed in rich colors and were traditionally made with batik fabric.
