Sarongs and pareos

Some of our scarves are long enough and wide enough to double up or triple up as sarongs and pareos.   Now I must confess I wasn't really sure what the difference is between the two, if anything, and was fairly confident the 'catch-all' term 'beach-wrap' would do the job. However, it seems, according to Wikipedia, which must be respected at all times(!), that a sarong takes on more of the look of a dress, knotted at the neck, whereas a pareo is more like a wrap-around skirt which you knot at one side. Whatever! The bottom line is that these scarves will take you from sunrise to sundown in a multitude of guises and in great style, and will make the purchase easier to justify, should such any justification be required!
