What to Wear for a Weekend in the Hamptons

It’s officially summer, which means many Manhattanites will be escaping the hot city sidewalks for sunny weekends out East. While most beach wardrobes would suffice with a couple of swimsuits and flip flops, let us remind you that the Hamptons is New York’s summer playground—a place where people like to dress up so they can see and be seen, even when they’re lounging by the pool. (After all, this is where Carrie Bradshaw confronted Big whilst wearing a snakeskin bra top and red cowboy hat and Diane Keaton sported white turtlenecks on repeat despite the heat.) So whether you’re shacking up at a share house in Amagansett or living it up in a compound in Sagaponack, below we’ve styled a weekend of outfits for every occasion—the beach, a cocktail party, a Hampton coffee run, or a Sunday brunch. Now all you need to do is slather on that Supergoop and uncork a bottle of Miraval . . . and you’re ready for wherever the season takes you!
