When it comes to chilling in the Harbor this summer, it surely comes to the legendary HAMPTONS & FASHION. It’s all about dressing up your tan in easy and breezy personality-laden looks.
Revamp your summer 2016 wardrobe with simple denim, chick romper, tie-dye or floral cutout dress, playful silver Nikes and very important: unpretentious luxury tailored sportswear, now essential for any non-gym activity, including a last minute business meeting. Embrace functional designs from Balsa Athletica. It’s all about striking the balance between casual, and comfort-cool, but yet Hampton’s appropriate.
Bring your sensual vibe to the Surf Lodge, strolling in style while wearing black aviators with a Raquel Allegra layered tank dress, flashing your sun-kissed skin and sexy glow. Whether you’re on a sunny, sparkling shore, at Sag Main street or at Coopers Beach, own your spectacular style wearing Ulla Johnson embroidery dress, or Mara’s colorful jumpsuit. Have fun in your little denim shorts and straw hat on weekends, picking out fruits and veggies from a local Balsam Farms. And don’t be afraid to get a little frisky when the sun goes down at the exclusive South Pointe, frequented by celebrities. If you’re in the mood for surfing, visit gorgeous Ruschmeyer’s Hotel in Montauk. Relax wearing romantic lace by Self–Portrait, paired with nude lace-up heels. And for sexy, youthful skin, dab a light layer of M.A.C’s Crème shine on lids for a dewy, tropical sheen.
The rich palette of colors this summer is all about shades of glowing sunset hues. There’s just something about the Hampton’s sunset that ignites imagination. Perhaps it’s a stimulating energy of the hot summer or just a romantic mood. Of course summer is about dreaming of adventures, and where else can you catch the vibe but at festivals. Approach your festival passionate look with innocence and ease. Keep them girlie-feminine, lightweight and relaxed, effortless, from subtle to semi-revealing. An exposed shoulder makes the picture-perfect setting for sunset cocktails like Pink Flamingo Martini or Sama Sama Spritzer.
For those looking for a party at the waterfront playground, Montauk Yacht Club is calling you. Your inner bohemian is trending this summer with pretty femme, ladylike silhouettes, tiered ruffles, and layers of lace, stripes and modern prints.
And if you’re waiting for my style advice: Always wear something insanely nice in case you bump into someone special. No matter what you wear, feel confident. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, go for it! Think about how grateful you are to own your style, and always remember, your style and personality make the WOW statement.
Enjoy this sultry summer, play hard, dress well and do good deeds.
