The Pareo: A Summer Must-Have

PareoI'm seeing a lot of celebrities stepping out in pareos lately, and now that I've researched them, I think I have to have one or twenty.

The pareo is basically an infinity dress for the beach. It's a lightweight piece of cloth that can be worn many different ways.

Tie it around your waist to get snacks at the pool or loop it around your neck and make a quick dress so that you can run an errand without changing.

I love the pareo because you can turn it into a cover-up that suits your own body type, whether you want to bare a lot of skin or just a little.
