Though quickly labelled as an exclusively beach-y piece, the right sarong yields endless possibilities. Tie it across your chest as a mid-length dress, or wrap it around your waist for a mini or maxi skirt. With white jeans, the sarong makes for a flow-y and cropped halter, and when all else fails, layer it around your head for a decidedly hippie-chic vibe. We've gathered a vibrant group of highly versatile sarongs to fit your tastes and summer ensembles!
