Color Me Rad

Lei Chic Tan cardigan. Grey skinnies. Little black dress. Basics is right—your blander-than-white-bread closet is seriously giving you the blues.

It’s time to paint the town in something bold, fun and vibrant.

Freshen your fashion palette with Wings Hawaii’s new vivid fall tunics and dresses. The collection’s juxtaposition of standout colors and prints was inspired by the rich, multi-hued styles that co-designer Samantha Howard observed while on vacation in Malaysia.

Snag the to-dye-for Roti Chennai Tunic, a swingy a-line mini dress that fades creamsicle-colored stripes into a panel of graphic maroon and black lines. Or, slip into the rainbow-bright Itli Dress, a flirty, spaghetti strap number crafted from a watercolor-esque printed rayon.

The collection also includes belted, recycled-saree tube and tank dresses featuring pretty Asian flower patterns and rich jewel tones.

Each piece is designed, cut and hand-sewn by the Wings girls in their Haiku studio from limited-inventory fabrics, ensuring a blue moon's chance that you'll run into another girl sporting the same coloring look.

So you’ll be sure to turn heads,
and your friends green with envy.

Wings Hawaii’s new fall collection is available at their flagship store, 71 Baldwin Ave., Paia, and online at Enter online promo code LEI CHIC at checkout for a 15 percent discount through this Sunday, Oct. 24.
