One of my favorite places to visit in the summer is the Hamptons. Although I live in LA, I spend a lot of time in New York and always make sure to hit the Hamptons when I can. Since the weather and style are different everywhere we go, I figured I’d share my packing guide for a trip out east. Take a look at what I always bring along with me below.
All White Everything
The Hamptons is big on white ensembles. Whether it’s head-to-toe white or white staple pieces, you’ll see it everywhere. I like to pack a white dress, some white tops, and of course white denim.
As much as I love neutrals, the Hamptons is a place where patterns are prevalent. However, I don’t mean loud and vibrant patterns; it’s definitely still low-key. Some stripes or simple florals are perfect for this mini getaway.
The ocean water may too cold for swimming, but it’s still a great beach location. Plenty of houses and hotels in the Hamptons have a pool, which is great for laying out too. Get your tan on in some statement swimwear pieces and be sure to snap some pics for Instagram.
An important thing to know is that the Hamptons is chilly at night. Unless it’s a very humid day, you’ll likely need a sweater or two. Pack some cardigans, hoodies, and maybe a light jacket, so you don’t freeze during your trip.
Indoor & Outdoor Shoes
Depending on your itinerary, there’s s high chance that you’ll be spending a lot of time outside. There’s a ton of outdoor restaurants and bars, but the Hamptons is also a great place to go for a walk or bike ride. Bring some sneakers along with your sandals and heels for your other activities.
