How to Winterize Your Hawaiian Shirt

  • The Party Guide

For Parrotheads, it doesn't matter how cold it gets outdoors - there needs to be a way to wear the Hawaiian shirt in any weather. While the urge to wear flip flops and coconut bikini tops may subside as the snow falls, there are still some ways to work that patterned shirt in your wardrobe rotation. Try out one of these cold weather Hawaiian shirt options. 

Wear It Under a Sweater 
Mix semi-formal with casual by wearing your Hawaiian shirt under a sweater. Whether you're going to a holiday party or just relaxing around the house, this duo-shirt combination allows you to keep warm in cooler climates while letting just a little bit of Parrothead poke through. Keep it untucked to let even more of your Parrothead shirt flash.

Layer up 
Another layered option is to keep the Hawaiian shirt on the outside and bundle underneath. In only slightly cool conditions, a simple thermal shirt underneath should suffice while in colder conditions, wear a few shirts or a sweatshirt so that you're toasty then just throw the Hawaiian shirt on as a vest at the end. You might look silly wearing this too often, but it's the perfect thing for outdoor parties and winter tailgates for the college football post-season. 

Opt for Long Sleeves 
Did you know long-sleeved Hawaiian shirts exist? They do, and not only are they just as fun as the original short-sleeved variety, but they can help keep you a lot warmer. Look for a long-sleeved style that can keep you toasty and show off your true Parrothead spirit.
