Turquoise for the Hamptons: The Hottest Trends of Summer [Guest Post]

By Alexandra Jacobs

Now that summer is here, fashion is in full force. Women can break out their aqua heels and printed sundresses to look like they walked out of the pages of Vogue this summer. Trends like the Michael Kors rose gold watch are an essential item to pack for weekend trips to the Hamptons or for attending charity events like Super Saturday 2012. Packing the right items will ensure that any woman is ready for wining and dining at the best social events in Montauk, relaxing at the Main Beach in East Hampton or going out for a shopping adventure in Southampton this summer.

Day Time Summer Trends


When you are going out to visit the Saks 5th Avenue store in Southampton or even just to view some lovely Hamptons real estate properties, it is essential to incorporate aqua into your look. Tiffany’s blue, aqua and mint green are the hottest colors for this summer. If you do decide to incorporate an aqua-theme into your look, be sure to choose one piece of your outfit for this eye-popping color. You can either choose to wear turquoise shoes or a cute summer dress in turquoise. Another trend for day-time looks is to add a Bohemian scarf over the neck. Boho scarves compliment a simple outfit with a tank or pair of shorts. They add a touch of worldly class to any look. You can also try wearing a blazer over a floral dress or other outfit for a winning look this summer.

Beach Trends


Simple is the name of the game for beach trends this summer. Try wearing a simple all-white or all-black bikini when you hit the beach. An all-black bathing suit will have you emulating that classic Audrey Hepburn look from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Also, you can spice up your outfit by incorporating bright patterns into your cover-up for the beach. Try donning a patterned yellow cover-up over your simple black bikini for this summer. Printed floral cover-ups are an essential part of any summer wardrobe for 2012.

Going Out on the Town


For a night out on the town, women will want to accessorize with watches this summer. The Michael Kors rose gold watch has been the envy of every woman in the fashion world. This watch is sold-out at hundreds of stores but can be found online. In addition to gold jewelry and watches, other trends for this summer are bold colors. Try wearing a gold watch with a pink shirt or pastel yellow skirt. The key is to have fun with fashion and have a more free-spirited approach to creating your getaway looks.

The more fun you have with fashion, the more others will take notice of your impeccable style in the Hamptons this summer.

 As you plan your getaway trips this summer, be sure to stock up on these summer essentials. You will be in style and have the allure of a Vogue model with these looks.
