Summer is winding down but the warm weather is still here and there is no better time than now to enjoy the beautiful beach weather. A sarong or pareo is the essence of casual summer wear and perfect for the warm tropical weather. What is the difference between a sarong and pareo?

What to wear on Aloha Friday?

Fri, 09/06/2013 - 06:31 -- ohana

It’s Aloha Friday time to finish off the work week and wind down for the weekend. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is not the only day where one would throw on an Aloha Shirt. Because of the warm tropical weather it is unrealistic to expect business men and women to be wearing suits. It is common for men to wear Aloha shirts for business attire instead of a suit and tie. It’s not only because of the warmer weather but Hawaii has its own laid back culture. Things are a bit less formal and slower paced.
