Counting down the days till summer? We can't wait to throw on our swimsuits and head down to the beach! I think we can all agree that finding the perfect beach outfit is not always easy, but we may have just found the solution: sarongs!

Sarongs are a simple and easy way to dress up your swimsuit. Celebs like Kim Kardashian and Rachel Zoe have been seen hitting the sand in this latest trend. This effortless look is easier to achieve than most would think and we are going to show you how just how easy it is. Here are two different ways to tie the perfect sarong!  

Both looks feature a printed sarong that can be found at H&M for only $12.95! This first look will demonstrate how to tie your sarong to create a one-shoulder dress.
