Aloha! So you've bought your tickets for your trip to Hawaii and are already dreaming of days snorkeling at the beach, attending luaus, hiking in lush foliage, and eating lots of delicious Hawaiian cuisine. While it might not be the first thing on your mind when planning your trip, proper clothing is essential for enjoying all that Hawaii has to offer. As you get ready to start packing, here are some tips on what kind of clothes you should wear on your trip. 

Casual Wear 

A majority of your time in Hawaii will be spent in casual wear. This is the state where it's acceptable to find elected politicians wearing aloha shirts on a daily basis. During the day when going to the beach or heading out to get shaved ice, a lightweight t-shirt, comfortable shorts, and a pair of Pali Hawaiian shoes will work just fine and match an array of outfits. If you're headed to the beach later in the day, you can wear your swim trunks instead of shorts or wear your swimsuit under your clothes. 

Hiking Clothing

If you've included hiking on the itinerary for your trip, you will need to bring a hiking outfit. It is a good idea to bring active wear or clothing designed for hiking. And while hiking in Hawaii is beautiful, it rains frequently, so the terrain can be intense and often muddy. Instead of bringing heavy hiking shoes to Hawaii we highly recommend lightweight water shoes, as well as, a waterproof jacket.

Evening Attire 

For evening dinners at fancy restaurants or attending special events like luaus, you will want to wear something more formal than the shirt and shorts you've been wearing all day at the beach. However, there are very few occasions where formal attire is appropriate in Hawaii. Instead of grabbing a fancy dress or a tie, opt for a more semi-formal look. This is the right time to pull out a nice sundress, especially one with tropical print. For guys, slacks or nice shorts with a button-up shirt will do just fine. 

The best part about packing for the Hawaiian islands is that the weather is pretty reliable year round. Temperatures consistent year round, perfect for all travelers and sunshine can usually be found any time of year. Above everything, the two things you should bring to Hawaii are a sense of adventure and a smile!
