5 Fashion Trends You'll See in the Hamptons This Summer
Bring on the pom-poms
The East End is a gorgeous place to relax, but when it comes to fashion, it’s not exactly laid-back. That doesn’t mean you have to strut down Main Street in six-inch heels, but you’ll definitely feel like the odd gal out roaming around in old sweats. But wait, don’t cancel your Jitney seat. Here’s how to make five Hamptons fashion trends your own.
While you’ll have to watch out for oddball tan lines, this is one of the summer’s most versatile trends. You can go for a one-piece or bikini; print or solid; cutout or draped style… The possibilities are endless, people.
The season’s most playful trend is the perfect way to add flair to a minimalist outfit. (Just don’t wear your pom-pom sandals on the beach or you’ll be shaking sand out of ’em for the rest of the year.)
Wait, scarves in the summer? Hear us out. You can wear a lightweight linen or silk scarf as a cover-up at the beach, wrapped around your neck to go shopping on a breezy day or tied ontoyour purse strap to bring your dinner look together.
There are countless boutique fitness studios, pop-ups and outdoor workouts to try out east, so it’s fitting that luxury activewear is practically the Hamptons uniform. From mesh bras to paneled leggings, this trend will keep you feeling comfy, confident and, of course, ready to break into a sprint at any moment.
Crisp Straw Hats
We’re just as serious about sun protection as we are about style. And luckily, a straw hat with a structured brim is both chic and good at protecting your face from harmful rays. (It’s also a must for mid-afternoon beach naps.)
