Guest Post: Chic Fashion in the Hamptons

As summer came to a close for many of us this past weekend, weeks at the beach are no longer an option. Now, we look forward to the weekend and those 3 day getaways from the craziness of work and class. 

Alex of Alex's Jounreys put the following piece together on Hamptons fashion year round:




While summer comes to a close on the coastal summer getaways, the time to put away swim suits and sandals and trade them for the warm layered fashions we’ve been dreading at every BBQ event this season has arrived. Here in the Hamptons, the best spring and summer fashions remain casual but chic for fall. Unlike uptown styles, fashion here has a more relaxed feel. Nautical inspiration drives fashion in the Hamptons, even through the early fall, continuing to reflect the importance of the water in our lives and excursions here.

For those who enjoy Hamptons real estate during the summer and fall, daytime fashions for the season offer luxurious simplicity with natural fibers and straight-forward designs. Daytime styles include nautical-striped tops in short or long sleeves, perhaps paired with skinny jeans or modern cut chinos. For a step up in style, add a blazer and the combo works for a beachside luncheon or an evening out.

While enjoying your time in the Hamptons in the spring and summer, high-heeled sandals are an absolute must. Even the most casual outfits step up their formality when paired with the right shoes. Add a stack of nautical-themed bracelets to the right pair of heels, and suddenly cuffed chinos and a polo shirt evolve into evening dress.

Those wishing to mirror the floral colors and shapes of spring and summer in the Hamptons will also find plenty of vogue options. Fluid skirts in earthy or jewel tones paired with a matching knit top are perfect for breezy afternoons. Addition of a matching floppy hat and lightweight scarf, provides the perfect finishing touch to a beachy fall look.

Day or night, these fall fashions provide the ideal answer to what to wear this season in the Hamptons. Whether enjoying a beachside bash or a day on deck, these versatile fashions are sure to keep the wearer looking chic.
