If you're headed to the beach this weekend--lucky you!--allow us to help demystify the many ways to tie a shapeless scrap of fabric into a piece of clothing worthy of a Kardashian.
1. This lovely lady demonstrates how to tie a sarong into a halter-style dress, a one-shouldered dress, two different types of beachy "jackets."
2. This "video" is really just a flip-book of pareo-tying instructions, but who can resist the jazzy soundtrack and more than twenty suggestions (one of which turns your sarong into a tribal-style romper!)
3. Don't want to cover up your adorable bikini top? This video shows how to make two different long wrap skirts (one with a really pretty front cascade) and one mini skirt.
