Out of all the summer holiday wardrobe staples, few are as versatile as the humble sarong. A seemingly simple staple, this underrated wardrobe piece truly is the MVP of the season for ladies who love a laidback, breezy style thrown together straight off the beach.

And while these coverups will always be a go-to for balmy summer vacations, the carefree beach wrap is in the throes of an uptown update. Now, sarongs are being lived in all day, all night, and out of the sandbox. Think of it as the perfect way to keep the holiday vibe alive as you swift off your OOO and tackle those mounting emails.

Whether you plan to fashion it into a top, mini, or midi skirt, you’ll find inspo on how to get the look (an ensure it stays in place) with thanks to the likes of  Lucy Folk, Cooke & Kin, and Ziah tutorials. Bless.

As for what to wear it with, opt for an oversized boxy shirt during the work day, a loose t-shirt for weekends, and a silk camisole with some gold jewellery for after dark. Pair these looks back with minimal sandals for a truly effortless, enviable (and comfortable), summer outfit.
