Hawaii fashion through the decades


Hawai‘i has always stunned the senses, and it’s not just the beaches, waterfalls and beautiful people. We’re fashionable, too, and we keep on evolving and experimenting our clothing styles, decade by decade.

Many of the images first appeared in the pages of HONOLULU and its predecessor, Paradise of the Pacific—but Hawai‘i styles have also popped up in Hollywood and all over the world. What’s your favorite era?
