How to dress like a local: Pau Hana

Things don't get too fancy around here....Honestly, it's pretty hard to pull off 5" platforms in a place where thin strapped metallic Havaianas are considered "dressing-up". 
However, pair platform heels with casual cut- offs, a diaphanous tank, and a structured clutch, you might get away with the look at a couple tiki bars on Maui. Or at least you can try right?
