Lust Resort

Malie Organics launches apparel line

Malie resort You love the enchanting effects of Malie Organics.

One whiff of mango nectar body cream and you're whisked to a beach-side lounge chair, sipping a mango mojito and watching the sun set.

A spritz of plumeria and you've got a tall, gorgeous stranger tucking a flower in your hair, ready for a magical night of romance.

There's just one problem. You have nothing to wear.

Until now.

The Kauai-based beauty line is branching out into apparel with Malie Wear, a line of breezy, effortless resort wear that captures the essence of paradise. Kai, the debut collection, draws inspiration from the ocean with deep blue and teal hues and marine prints, perfect for your impromptu vacay.

Lei ChicSlip on the Waikiki dress with flowing ombre fabric and plunging neckline for dinner with Mr. Hottie. Then, when your late night turns into a sunrise walk on the beach, throw on the long skirt with octopus print as a casual strapless dress. And when that walk tuns into an impromptu lunch at the farmers market, pair the fish scale-printed tie tank with capris.

The blend of organic cotton, bamboo and spandex means everything is packable, washable and super soft. Just make sure to try it on, since some styles run slightly large.

So now you've got the perfect look to go with your dream hunk.

It's like you've tide and gone to heaven.

Malie Wear is priced from $80-$155, available at both Malie Boutique locations, in Waikiki at The Royal Hawaiian, 2259 Kalakaua Ave., (808) 922-2216, and in Kalaheo, 2-2560 Kaumualii Hwy., (808) 332-6220. Visit Malie Organic's Web site for more information.
