I've long been an advocate of finding pieces that are both affordable, fun, and versatile. Those pieces that can be used in a variety of ways and add an element of interest to your rigs. I have to say, I've always loved a good summer scarf, but the PAREO kind of ups the ante when talking summer accessories. I mean, what other accessory can serve as a dress, scarf, skirt, and shirt? Not sure one comes to mind, am I right? This adorably vibrant PAREO from Target is one of those that you can (and SHOULD) travel with and carry with you at all times this summer. Simply put, this lovely is a chameleon and a beautiful one at that. Target has a bevy of these beauties in stock and today we're taking a gander at the many ways you can style the pareo.
Cocktails with the gals? Absolutely---by adding a vintage gold necklace and metallic heels, the pareo is elevated to a perfect dress for a GNO. Heading to a bbq, concert, or day at the beach--why not let the pareo serve as the perfect halter complement to your cutoffs! A pair of sandals and straw beach bag serve to complete this summertime look. Beach or poolside? No better coverup than this gorgeous embroidered pareo----goof proof to tie and/or wrap around the bikini. And finally, if headed out for a casual day of errands, lunch, or even travel--this lovely serves as the perfect summer scarf! I just looped mine around several times and made sure the little tassels were in full view.
Needless to say, the pareo will go the major distance for me this summer---highly recommend you give one a go and don't be afraid to play around with the many ways you can sport this lovely! Cheers to a great day, gang...make it a great one!
