Knit Picks 

You don’t want to sound like a whiner, but yes, the evening temperature drop from 82 to 75 degrees does give you a bit of a chill (too bad if mainland friends don’t have such finely tuned internal thermometers).

And lately, finding the perfect outerwear has you sputtering. Pashminas have been out for a few seasons now, and the ratty old hoodie you’ve been dragging around is ready to retire.

What you need is a cute cardi or tunic from the Stacia Eco Knit collection. The T-shirt weight sweaters are designed by Stacy Johnson, who grew up in Hawai‘i and Alaska. Dressing for tropical and arctic climates taught her a thing or two about layering, and her line of watercolor-patterned, space-dyed knits seamlessly joins fashion and function, especially for island weather.

Choose from long-sleeved hoodies, lace-up tunics, and swing cardigans, perfect to layer over tanks and camis, maxi dresses, even silky cocktail dresses. Or, take your pick from chic flutter-sleeve wrap dresses and braided tank dresses.

The Stacia Eco Knit line even makes scarves and swimwear, and the whole collection is made with environmentally friendly bamboo, seaweed and soybean yarns.

Proving that style and sustainability can share a common thread.
