Summer times means long warm days… or chilly ac ridden days.  Poolside lounging… or trying to cover up in a itty bitty suit.  Either way, it’s still way more fun than winter and sometimes just requires the right accessory.  That’s why I’m claiming the Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong as the perfect summer accessory, and here are 10 reasons why:

 1.  It’s tropical print

Palm Leaves And Tropical Birds

Palm Leaves And Tropical Birds

During summer anything tropical print is an instant mood booster.  Instantly feel like your in a tropical paradise when really you’re in your cube.  I absolutely adore the lush print with palms and birds, a little different than your typical tropical flowers.  Yes, its a little old lady but its so cute!  Anyways, who said old ladies aren’t cute!?

 2.  Its fringed

Fring is having a major moment right now, so the silky black fringe (that doesn’t tangle) will keep you on trend!  So that x’s out that old lady-ness right?

3.  Its silky

May be hard to tell from the picture but I can vouch on the quality on this guy.  It may be polyester but it’s really silky, which means it won’t be TOO hot in the summer heat.

4.  Its oversized

Measuring 59″ L x 43 1/2″ W + 6″ fringe which means you can wear it a boat-load of ways.  Wear it mulit-ways for multi-purposes.

5.  Wear it out

It is thin so you can easily wear it as a scarf.  Wear it like you would a statement necklace.

6.  Wear it to work

Sling It Over The Shoulders In Chilly AC

Wrapped around the shoulders it wards off the chilly ac in offices… or at the grocery store, at the movies, etc… and it would stuff in your bag easily when you don’t need it.

7.   Wear it at the pool

Perfect Poolside Accessory

Perfect Poolside Accessory

Wear it as your typical sarong style at the pool for covering up.  It really is the best poolside cover up because you can adjust it to be as high or low as you want it… cover the gut or show off the abs, you pick! Long or short, you pick!  Either way you’ll be looking like a tropical goddess!

8.  Wear it as a dress

Get more bang for your buck by not only getting a new accessory but a new dress as well!  How perfect for a summer party or nights out.  Wear a tube top/bandeau and some spandex like shorts underneath to feel comfortably covered up.

9.  Wear it as a maxi skirt
