Do you ever find yourself living vicariously through the far-flung tropical destinations bloggers always seem to travel to? While it feels like everyone is traveling halfway around the world to destinations like Bali or the South of France, there's one place that's much more accessible to those living in the continental U.S.—Hawaii. Though it's roughly a six-hour flight from the West Coast, the islands that make up our 50th state feel like a world away. While some of you may call Hawaii your go-to spot for a beach vacation, others among us (myself included) will settle to scroll through these gorgeous images and plan our dream Hawaii wardrobe.
While other beach vacations might have you exploring a local town or being more active, Hawaii is a place where you can hit the beach and maybe go snorkeling. In other words, it's easy to live in your bikini all day, every day while soaking up the vitamin D. Which is why we've put together a seven-piece wardrobe to wear in Hawaii with a lot of inspiration from our favorite blogger's dream vacations.
Go on to see the seven beach-ready pieces bloggers have proven are perfect for a vacation in Hawaii (or any other tropical destination, for that matter).
The one staple for any kind of tropical getaway is a breezy white dress. This is your hero piece that will be both your beach cover-up and your daytime exploring dress.
You'll need a linen top to throw on over your swimsuit when you hit the beach. Opt for a slightly oversize one that you can tie at the waist to show off a cool suit.
A sun hat is an obvious necessity. Try a neutral-toned or woven topper to practice safe sun in style. A simple striped tee and white shorts make for an easy, laid-back combo that still looks fresh.
If working on your tan all day is not in your plans, try a one-piece suit (beware of the one-piece tan lines, or else pile on the sunscreen). These options are so cool they might convince you to wear them away from the beach, too.
If Instagram taught us anything, it's that the basket bag is a summery style staple that you can't go on vacation without. Grab an Insta-worthy tote, and snap those tropical pics.
For when you're not just living in a swimsuit, try a maxi dress as a go-to dinner-and-drinks option. Plus, the breezy shape will ease the pain of that inevitable sunburn.
