Being stranded on a tropical island may not be everyone’s idea of paradise, but you could do a whole lot worse than getting “stuck” in the almost impossibly beautiful environs of Maui.

And since you’ll want to look good when your saviors show up, the following pages offer a guide to getting shipwrecked in style.
