This Skirt Just Went From Beach Essential to a Runway Trend

Here in the Philippines, a sarong skirt is usually worn at the beach. It’s made of flowy fabric with colorful prints, and can be used as a cover-up and for lounging on the sand. Meanwhile, spring 2018 runways have shown that this style will rule this season.

Who What Wear noted that the sarong style was mostly seen in pencil skirts. They described them of having “asymmetrical silhouette and gathering details.” Altuzarra and Erdem incorporated this in their recent pieces.



So if you want to wear the sarong daily, you can cop various designs and lengths like our picks below.

Miss Selfridge Black Twist Knot Front Maxi Skirt

The gathered detail on this skirt creates a thigh-high slit, which makes it a good evening wear option. But aside from heels, you can also pair this with sneakers. Available at Greenbelt 5.

Eres Zephyr Tanagra Cotton-Jersey Pareo

Commonly used poolside, this skirt can also be worn for casual trips to the mall or the park. It has a waist tie for a wrap effect and also comes in a dark purple color. Pair this with a black top or wear it with a bralette if you want a summery vibe. Available on Net-a-Porter.

Bershka Crossover Midi Skirt

If you’re looking for a corporate sarong-style skirt, this Bershka piece might work for you. It’s a checkered wrap skirt that’s reminiscent of the skirts you wear to the beach. Make it office wear-appropriate by wearing a long-sleeved top. A sweater will also work if you want that preppy, Clueless vibe. Available at SM Aura Premier.

Christian Wijnants Asymmetric Skirt

Made in light denim, this Christian Wijnants skirt is a welcome change to your usual choice of jeans. Depending on your height, the longest part of the skirt might reach your ankles at most. So it’s best to wear heeled boots if you don’t want it dragging on the ground while walking. Available on Farfetch.

Something Borrowed Printed Wrap Skirt

Another summery skirt to try is this one from Something Borrowed. It’s black with red and white floral prints, and also mid-rise which makes it perfect for crop tops and even tube tops. You can wear this during music festivals or if you’re going to a beach-themed gala. Available on Zalora PH.
