Sarongs in Spring

Stepping into Spring season in a Sarong dress is how we prefer it! Especially when wearing Viven of Holloway - one of our top favorites in authentic looking reproduction clothing. With tones of classic white and emerald green, we debuted the perfect Spring ensemble amongst the lush greenery and fancy foliage of The Beverly Hills Hotel. As you know, The Pink Palace is a pink-collar playground, rich with history, elegance and decadence since 1912.

The Sarong style dress, was a popular pattern of the 1940s, and especially the 1950s. Tropical themed Tiki parties were all the rage after WWII, as this dress style was quickly adopted and seen on every glamour girl around, usually made of elaborate cotton prints, or Asian brocade satin.

Vivien of Holloway is well known for their perfected pattern of Sarong and Bolero sets, completely true to vintage. This is one of those pieces that we need in absolutely every color, and VOH delivers that! Available in solid cottons, Hawaiian prints, and Asian satin brocade, you can easily find your staple Sarong for any occasion.

Weather you need a dress for cocktails, or a comfortable cotton summer dress, the VOH Sarong is perfect for any occasion and look. Go 1950s Bombshell glam, or 1940s pretty Polynesian. We could go on forever about the immaculate tailoring, but the photos can do all the talking here! We just adore the mid-calf, straight skirt, nipped waist, and beautiful bust.
