Hold the fabric horizontally, then wrap it around your back, like a towel. Bring the top corners together in front of your body. Twist the two corners around each other twice. Then knot them behind your head to form a halter.
Hold the fabric horizontally, and wrap the pareo around your waist. (If the material is too long, fold it in half once more.) Gather the material in front, and make a simple knot. Knot a second time to secure. Twist the material to the side of your hip. Fluff out the corners of the knot, so that the patterned side faces outward.
Fold the material in half diagonally to form a triangular shape. Wrap the pareo around your waist. Place the two ends of the pareo together, and tie a knot on one side of your hips. Tie a second knot to secure it in place.
Position the fabric behind you so that it is perpendicular to your body. Take the corners at the opposite ends of the garment and wrap them from back to front, underneath your arms. Reposition and fluff up the pareo ends to fall nicely.
