Although the leaves maintain its vibrant green color year-round, October brings Hawaii a welcome respite from the busy summer vacation season. Temperatures cool slightly to relieve some of the sizzling heat and popular beaches begin to clear out as swimmers and sun tanners head back home. Not only are the skies perfect and the plane tickets cheaper, local retailers start rolling out new autumn releases to give the islands more of that “fall” feeling as well.
In other words, this month is one of the best times of year to visit Hawaii, especially as the rest of the U.S. prepares to pull their chunky knits and boots out of the closet. Already in town or planning to arrive soon? Don’t miss out on these seasonal specials available at Waikiki Beach Walk®.
Long-Sleeve Tropic Sunset Key Lime Classic Crewneck T-Shirt ($41.00)
There’s nothing quite like watching a sunset in paradise. Its golden rays of light sweep across the sandy shore and shimmering ocean waves to paint a breathtaking picture that can stop anyone in their tracks. And just like that, it’s over—at least until tomorrow anyway. It’s this fleeting moment of splendor that inspires the latest long-sleeve from Crazy Shirts
, which goes through a specialty dyeing process using real key limes to give it that vibrant green hue. Printed on 100% combed ring-spun cotton with SPF 50+ defense, it’s soft to the touch and peel-proof to ensure t-shirt quality that lasts.
Short-Sleeve Blossoming Flowers Cool Blue Scoop Neck T-Shirt ($33.00)
Made with luxuriously soft ring-spun cotton, this relaxed scoop neck tee is sure to keep you cool and comfortable all day long. Its soothing shades of blue and green are soaked deep into the shirt fibers using environmentally friendly water-based ink, setting up the prime stage for a blossoming flower design that won’t crack over time. Though it may not be your typical fall foliage, the floral theme makes perfect sense in Hawaii, reminding us of how special it is to be in full bloom all year.
