Hawaiian Shirt Dare

This outfit has been brewing for a year. Last August, Kristin O’Reilly dared us to find a stylish way to wear a Hawaiian shirt. I was intrigued, but missing the shirt. I was elated when I discovered the perfect luau shirt in TDW’s costume stash a few weeks ago.

As Beefy might say, this look isn’t “my favorite,” but it really isn’t half bad. How do you wear Hawaiian shirts?

What a great way to pull that shirt off!

When my grandfather passed away a few years ago and we had his memorial service outside, we decided we'd all wear hawaiian shirts in his honor because he wore them all the time. I wore mine tied like yours with khaki shorts. It was cute. :) But now I wish I'd had a skirt like that!

I think you actually got away with it...
I do not have a Hawaiian shirt... but if I did I would take a cruise in the Caribbean and wear it.

I often think of Homer Simpson's view of Hawaiian shirts. "There's only two kinds of guys who wear Hawaiian shirts: gay guys and big fat party animals." I always laugh to myself about this quote when I see people who appear to be neither wearing Hawaiian shirts.

How fun! I tend to wear mine (well, hubby's) over a tank and jeans, just unbuttoned, but I don't think it looks as cute as your outfit!

Adorable! The colors of that are incredibly intense.

I used to have my dad's Hawaiian shirt - I wore it in the summer when I was either sunburnt or just feeling sloppy. I have definite memories of writing my last grade 12 exam in his shirt.

I don't think I would wear them now...but I'm intrigued. I see a lot of them while out thrifting.

I had a really boring tan skirt suit and I would wear a Hawaiian shirt with colors similar to your underneath to liven it up, i think it worked, the lime green tights I wore with it, not so much....
