What to Wear When Hiking Through Oahu, Hawaii


Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

Almost 50 years ago, Elvis Presley made history in Hawaii. The King of Rock ’n’ Roll, who would have been 84 last week, took the stage in Honolulu clad in an all-white jumpsuit designed by Bill Belew to belt out classics like “Steamroller Blues” and “Hound Dog” while millions watched. The special, titled Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite, marked the first time a concert with a single performer was broadcast live on TV via satellite—and on a more somber note, one of the last times Presley performed before his addiction ultimately took over.

Presley wasn’t the only icon to perform in the Paradise of the Pacific. The state has drawn every artist from the Rolling Stones and Mariah Carey to Earth, Wind & Fire and Diana Ross over the years. What’s more, Hawaii is home to legends like Barack Obama, Bruno Mars, and even Bette Midler, and its picturesque scenery is visible in big-name films like Blue Crush, Jaws, Godzilla, Pearl Harbor, and countless others. In other words, Hawaii is worth visiting—particularly O’ahu, the third-largest of its islands. (Honolulu is located here, but the city only occupies a portion of it.) In addition to having two ancient volcanoes and one of the best beaches in the word, O’ahu boasts some glorious ocean views best seen via its many trails. In other words, “The Gathering Place” (that’s O’ahu’s official nickname) is a hiker’s dream. Below, find CR’s top picks should you find yourself booking a flight to witness Hawaii’s picturesque majesty in all its glory.
