Here a Muumuu, There a Muumuu, Everywhere a Muumuu….


At least in Hawaii!

Muumuus, officially mu’umu’u in the native Hawaiian language. are traditional dress.  While muumuus once were worn to work by women, like Aloha shirts are worn by men to work, most Hawaiian women reserve their muumuus for formal occasions, such as weddings. You will see staff of major airlines and hotels on island wearing muumuus and Aloha shirts in coordinated colors specific to their employer.  Muumuus, and Aloha shirts for that matter, worn by residents of Hawaii tend to be more subdued in color and pattern than similar clothing purchased as souvenirs by visitors.

Muumuus are terrific for your vacation to Kaua’i.  Easy to pack, need no ironing, cool, and comfortable.  What is not to like about a muumuu?

Mrs Roper, you say?  While it is true that Mrs Roper, of the late sitcom Three’s Company, perpetually wore shapeless muumuus in shocking colors, muumuus are available with cap sleeves, bracelet sleeves, and elbow-length sleeves.  Not all muumuus skirt the floor, either.  Consider a shorter, knee-length muumuu as a beach cover up.

Throw on some slippahs (flip-flops to mainlanders), a few terrific bead bracelets from a local shop like Yellowfish, and off you go for another day in Paradise.

 

They aren’t quite what my Grandma used to wear.  🙂
