8 Super-Cute New Sundresses from Fighting Eel, XIX Palms, Yireh and More

Slip on these bright and breezy summer fashions from Hawai‘i boutiques.


Loose, flowy, easy, breezy—it’s been such a sticky-hot summer, that these are the only things running through my mind while getting dressed these days. Layering? Hell no. Full-on jeans? I don’t know her.


Thankfully, the local shops are chock-full of light ‘n’ airy sundresses right now.  Here’s what’s at the top of my list:
