Every summer New Yorkers flee the hustle and bustle of the big city to sit in hours of traffic only to arrive in the Hamptons where they can rub elbows with the same folks they did back in the Big Apple. And while it may seem silly to spend over four hours (if you’re lucky) of travel time to and from Manhattan’s version of weekend summer camp, there certainly is something to be said for fresh air, swimming pools, and pretty people. I do believe the Hamptons are why summer Fridays were even invented.
So, whether your scene is sweating and socializing under the big white tent at polo, sipping Andre Balazs rose and table dancing at Sunset Beach, or just kicking off your sandals and relaxing at The Surf Lodge, the look is (or should be) casual elegance. This is what makes it easy to spot the locals versus the visitors.
Now hop on the jitney or your seaplane, and see you out there.
