Out of all the beach-ready fashions, no garment offers versatility quite like the sarong skirt. In fact, the twisted, ruched, and tied design has inspired several polished runway looks over the years. Brandon Maxwell gave us a sarong skirt in a sophisticated pinstripe, Tory Burch delivered a dreamy shimmering version, and Johanna Ortiz interpreted the silhouette in a botanic print. It all confirms that the easygoing beach look can effortlessly come along for the ride for dressier occasions too.
It would seem a refined take on the sarong skirt is just the item our closets need right now—a moment when we’re looking to bring comfort into our lives in an elevated way. The skirt can make an effortless yet polished statement at a summer barbecue or a weekend brunch. And even if you’re headed back to the office, there are options that mimic the silhouette of a pencil skirt—like Nanushka’s high-waist design, which pairs well with crisp button-down blouses. If you’re intrigued by the versatile wardrobe hero, you’ll find below the best sarong skirts to wear all summer long.
