Hi, my name is Rachel Youens. I’m a freelance fashion writer and the owner of Austin Style
0:05
Watch.com street fashion site and today we’re going to talk about how to wear a summer staple,
0:09
and it’s the sari or sarong. First dress we’re going to make is sort of an evening wear dress
0:17
you can kind of put over a swimsuit. And your just going to take the sarong, wrap it around
0:22
your body, take it up around your neck and twist it one time. So, just like that – see
0:29
it again. Twist it, take both of the ends, bring them up around your neck and tie them.
0:39
You have a nice kind of front slit dress. Not something you might want to wear without
0:43
a little something underneath it because it is a little split up the front. Second dress
0:49
we’re going to wear is kind of a asymmetrical, one shoulder look. We’re going to take the
0:54
sarong again, wrap it around our body, take it behind our back, and leave a little bit
1:02
of a tail. And take the other side, bring it up over your shoulder. And this is when
1:08
you might need a friends help with, unless your very flexible or sort of a contortionist.
1:14
But your going to bring the two ends together, in the back , to make a one shouldered dress.
1:19
And the next looks we’re going to make are jackets. Kind of nice little beach cover ups.
1:27
First one we’re going to do is we’re going to take our sarong and lay it out, and tie
1:31
the two corners together. There’s one…and here is two. Now, you’re going to treat each
1:57
of these two ends sort of like sleeves and just put your arms right through them and
2:04
you’ve got kind of a nice loose beach jacket. The next one we’re going to do, also a jacket,
2:11
kind of follows along the same lines. And this is for a more short sleeved jacket. Last
2:19
one was kind of a more long sleeved one. For this one you’re going to take the sarong around
2:24
your body, sort of like the first dresses we made, tie the end up here and just as though
2:32
it were a halter top, you’re going to put your neck right through there to make a short
2:41
sleeved jacket. And this has been how to wear a sarong.
