Pareos are classic and fashionable wraparound skirts, similar to a sarong, that will offer you the perfect blend of versatility and comfort for your next warm weather vacation or trip to the beach or pool. These stylish pieces date back hundreds of years, originating in Tahiti. Initially, pareos were known as “pareus”, worn by Tahitian women as a skirt from the waist to the knees. As Western influence entered the South Pacific Islands, Tahitian women introduced more Western features to their pareos, adding a tie over one shoulder. These pieces continued to grow in popularity and a wide variety of styles were created by Western and South Pacific designers alike. As Westerners struggled to pronounce the name, “pareu”, of these increasingly fashionable skirts, they began to call the bold and unique garments “pareos”. And as the cliche goes, the rest is history. Pareos today have evolved into a trendy look for women and men. They are known for their vivid colors and floral, tropical patterns reminiscent of an island paradise.
Pareos can be worn in numerous way to fit your preference and style. Women typically wear it as a long or short skirt over anything from a swimsuit to a tank top to leggings. Interestingly enough, these pieces are not “women only”. Men can wear a pareo as a short skirt, or even make shorts out of it, especially when fishing or working in the bush where freedom of movement of the legs is needed. But during quiet, cooler nights at home, they may wear it as a long skirt too.
