What to wear, what to wear…From Westhampton Beach to Montauk, we’ve scoped the styles and tracked the trends. For summer 2013, the “festival” look has taken over and has been reinterpreted in various forms. Whether it’s lunch in town or a beach bonfire, this fun, flirty, easy and breezy look couldn’t be more perfect for your Hamptons summer.
Keep your eyes peeled for tops and dresses in Aztec, bohemian paisley and floral prints. “Daisies are huge, they’re everywhere,” says Regan at LF in Southampton. She’s right. They’re not only on midriff-bearing tanks, they’re on headbands and appliquéd to denim cut-offs.
Speaking of denim, look out for high-waisted vintage Levi’s, distressed denim vests, jean jackets, slouchy cut-offs, “perforated” jeans as seen at Intermix in Southampton.
Crochet is another can’t-miss trend for summer. From sweaters to dresses, the lightweight and loose-fitting cotton crochet is perfect for throwing over a tank and a pair of white skinny jeans, for those slightly chilly evenings outdoors. Spotted everywhere from Lilly Pulitzer (the Hamptons will miss her iconic fashion sense) to Christopher Fisher.
Last but not least…fringe!! It’s everywhere. Tops, shorts, skirts, bikinis and even on accessories. Case in point: the fringy leather Hacienda Montaecristo handmade “treasure pouch” at Ganeaux in Amagansett. Get ready to shimmy your way through summer 2013!
