* Layers! Pack a lightweight jacket or sweater for cool nights and sunburn chills. That said, sunblock should be in your bag as well!

* Graphic Tops: Plenty of them.

* Denim Cut-Offs. But that goes without saying.

* The Bag: A Lightweight, Heavy Duty Weekender. Choose a bag without structured sides (ie, no rollies – don’t be a trunk space hog here), so you can pack light and gather goodies along the way.

* (Not Pictured) Maxi Dress: Always great to have for day or night style.

As Seen On: Hawaii 5-0

hawaii

In last nights episode of Hawaii 5-0, the aloha loving Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly rocked the RVCA Fern & Burn Shirt in every scene. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, “Chin” is a local-boy cop with a shoot first mentality and an appetite for Kamekona’s shrimp truck.

Watch Hawaii 5-0 Mondays at 10 pm on CBS to see Chin’s weekly aloha shirt styles. Check out SWELL’s Aloha Friday Pinterest Board for dozens of fresh floral shirts, shorts, shoes and more.

Interesting Human: Alex Knost

RVCA surf advocate, board shaper and Tomorrow’s Tulips band front-man  Alex Knost has conceptualized and designed the second season of his signature apparel collection. He freesurfs around the world all year in search of inspiration for these custom tailored styles.

Enjoy as he expresses his style on a RVCA surf trip in Costa Rica

Alex Knost’s Spring 13 Line joins the elements of classic, vintage-inspired workwear, retro color combos and paisley prints for a feel that reflects his own wardrobe to a T. Alex has an affinity for secondhand charm, relaxed fit knits and muted color palettes that pop with brightness. Shop his RVCA looks here.

Keep an eye out for this coastal vagabond, as he can usually be seen in a very creepy taupe van, searching for a wedge on the outskirts of Newport Beach with his buddy Ford Archbold.
