Hawaiian shirts are a perfect way to bring the feel of the islands to your everyday life. It doesn't matter if you live in the dried up Arizona desert or the cold upper reaches of Minnesota, an island shirt can turn any day into a day at the beach. If you've ever spent a vacation on the beautiful Hawaiian islands, a tropical shirt is also a great way to relive those fond memories.

The right island shirt can make you feel like you're sitting at the beach, relaxing with a refreshing drink with a tiny umbrella. Put on your island shirt, sit back, close your eyes, and you can almost hear the sound of the surf and feel the warmth of the tropical sun on your face. If you live in a cold, snowy place like I do, this can be a great relaxation exercise and a way to relieve stress and fight the winter blues.

Traditional and Novelty Island Shirts

There are many different island shirts to choose from. Traditional designs are prints that feature plant and animal species native to the Hawaiian islands. Flora such as orchids, pineapples, coconut trees, bamboo, and hibiscus are traditional designs as are fauna like birds and fish. Traditional prints typically use bright colors and bold designs. Non-traditional, or novelty prints, are also widely available and can show virtually any theme or lifestyle imaginable.

The best place to go for wide selections and low-priced island shirts is the Internet. The best shirt makers and island shirt stores now sell through their websites. Web sales enable these island shirt companies to include more designs and to offer lower prices. Ordering is easy and some companies offer discounts for larger purchases. Orders will be shipped directly to a customer's home or office.
