il pareo

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun il pareo, which means beach robe or pareo. It is a style of dress typical of Tahiti and the Cook Islands. However, it is typically used in Italy and in the West as a sort of robe that one might wear to cover a bathing suit while at the beach. See the noun used below:

La ragazza uscì dall’acqua e andò verso l’ombrellone. Si annodò il pareo trasparente intorno ai fianchi e andò a comprarsi un gelato, perché era troppo caldo quel giorno al mare.

The woman got out of the water and went towards the umbrella. She tied the thin pareo around her hips and went to buy herself an ice cream, because it was too hot that day at the beach.
