Summer dressing in the Hamptons isn’t exactly easy. You need to pack items you can wear to the beach immediately after brunch…and then straight to wine tastings after the beach. These seven trends strike that elusive balance between laid-back and chic—and will take you from sand dunes to Sancerre in a snap.

Ballerina One-Pieces

If 2016 was the summer of athletic high-neck styles (which are still going strong), this is the year feminine maillots reign supreme. Look for understated blush hues and girlie details like ruffles and scalloped edges. (Bonus: This look doubles as a killer bodysuit when paired with a midi or high-waisted jeans.)

Get the look: Monki ($40); Blue Life ($150); Marysia ($350)

BRIGHT COLORS

Leave your all-black everything in the city: Summer is the domain of bold, look-at-me hues. Expect to see sunny yellows (which are surprisingly flattering) and berry tones all over this summer, especially as a modern contrast to florals and lace.

Get the look: ASOS dress ($24); Sophia Webster espadrilles ($350)

Upgraded Sneakers

Fashionable kicks have been all the rage the past few years and they’re not going anywhere, thanks to designers making the staple even chicer. We especially love the sporty, fashion-girl vibe they add to a summer dress.

Get the look: Puma sneakers ($65); Perverse sunglasses ($52)

STRAW BAGS

A massive bag is nonnegotiable (you’ve gotta stash your sunscreen, sunglasses, magazines and towels somewhere), but you don’t have to settle for a shapeless tote. This year’s structured, circular carryalls manage to look polished both on and off the beach.

Get the look: Free People ($50); Hat Attack ($112); Vanessa Seward ($275)

BARE SHOULDERS

Nothing goes with 85-degree weather like skin-baring tops and dresses. The key to keeping the look elevated? Tempering the exposure with grown-up silhouettes and luxe fabrics. Look for full off-the-shoulder tops in crisp poplin or go Italian Riviera-chic with asymmetry or subtle cutouts.

Get the look: Veronica Beard top ($275); Janessa Leone hat ($180); Celine sunglasses ($324)

STRIPES

Yes, the nautical favorite resurfaces every May, but this year’s iteration amps up the attitude with playful, bold asymmetrical styles.

Get the look: Petersyn top ($283); BaubleBar earrings ($48); Perverse sunglasses ($55)

FLORALS (with Attitude)

Florals are anything but boring this summer, especially in vintage-inspired prints (think Stevie Nicks, if she summered in Amagansett) or kitschy tropical motifs.

Get the look: Old Navy ($45); Topshop ($80); Alice + Olivia ($375)
