Don’t stress about what to wear in Hawaii! Our Hawaii outfits will have you looking like a ray of sunshine as you pack for tropical weather.

Hawaii Outfits

Once you’ve booked your trip to Hawaii, you’ll need to start thinking about what outfits to wear while you’re there. No matter if you’re staying on Kauai, Maui, Lanai, Oahu or the Big Island, you’ll see so many beautiful sights and have days filled with  activities hitting the world-famous Hawaiian beaches and possibly hiking gorgeous trails as well. Plan your Hawaii outfits for all these different occasions and settings, and you’ll be set.

In this article, we’ll tell you what you to bring for your Hawaii outfits and other packing essentials.

The weather in Hawaii is warm all year long, so prepare to spend your days at the beach. That means packing lots of swimsuits, no matter what season it is. Going to Hawaii for a girls trip? Try a daring cut-out swimsuit or a red bikini. Hitting the beach with the whole family? We also know the best places to find matching family swimsuits. If you’re planning on surfing, you’ll definitely  need a rash guard.

When packing your Hawaii outfits, make sure to include swimsuit cover-ups and dresses to wear on and off the beaches. For some chic bottoms to throw over your bikini, we love sarong skirts and swim cover-up pants. If you’re looking for something less casual, invest in a romper or fabulous beach dress. We especially think a little white beach dress is a Hawaii vacation must-have. Don’t forget your accessories: from beach bags to water sandals and sun hats!

Planning on going for a scenic hike in Hawaii? Then you definitely need comfortable sneakers and athletic-friendly clothing you can sweat in, like biker shorts and a tank top.
