How to wear: The sarong

Sarongs are for suckers. They bill themselves as multi-purpose and often come with crazy diagrams for 10 ways to wear them. Guess what? The only way to wear a sarong is to tie it around your hips as a makeshift skirt, one that screams “The Blue Lagoon”-meets-“MacGyver.” Don’t even contemplate the strangling halter dress-style unless you are accustomed to wearing a neck brace. Even actress Dorothy Lamour (left) so tired of donning a sarong, which she did in 11 films, that she publicly torched one in 1946. Reportedly, Lamour wanted to disassociate herself from her trademark screen image as an island girl. We know the truth: She just hated those damn sarongs.
