Summer is the time for outdoor events, and if you’ve got a cocktail party, dance, luau or informal wedding to attend, one of these alluring vintage style Hawaiian print dresses below  is sure to make you stand out from the crowd!  I just adore anything vintage Hawaiian and I love to watch classic films based in tropical locations, like  Blue Hawaii, Song of the Islands and South Pacific.  There’s something especially romantic about tropical islands. And  when I  see a pretty Hawaiian dress,  it conjures images for me of  exotic island locales with crystal blue water, palm trees swaying in the balmy breezes and steel drums playing in the background as I while away the hours sipping fruity rum spiked cocktails!

That is why I was so excited to get these fabulous new dress styles in my store.  By  Trashy Diva, who are  known for their fabulous prints,  these three vintage style dresses are done in one of the loveliest vintage inspired Hawaiian prints I’ve seen.  And the fabric is sumptuous silky rayon , much like the authentic from back in the 40s and 50s.  Any of these stunners would be the perfect summer party dress if you want to  impress!  Just add  hair flowers,  high heeled platform sandals and a cute vintage straw purse.

  1. Debra, those “Road to” movies are such fun! And, of course, the clothes are always fab.

    Jessica, the colors in this print are the closest to actual vintage shades that I’ve seen anywhere on a new fabric. If you are familiar with the popular color palettes used in the 40s and 50s, then you know what I mean. They are very different from what you see in modern fabrics. I guess because of the dyes used back then. But this print is very, very close to the real thing and I just love it.

  2. I used to watch all those “Road to” movies with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. So I especially love that sarong dress. So pretty, and it would be great to have it on this hot, hot summer day!

  3. The fabric for this trio of dresses set my heart aflutter! I love that it’s strikingly feminine, but not saccharine sweet (not that I’m opposed to the latter, I just think that this palette helps ensure these dresses are especially sophisticated), and oh-so-very stunning!
