What to Wear for a Summer in the Hamptons
Headed "out East" to the Hamptons this weekend? First thing's first, you need a plan to thwart traffic, and no option is guaranteed to keep you out of stop-and-start on the highway than Uberchopper, the new Uber service that let's you hire a helicopter to your destination. But if hiring air transportation isn't in the cards, consider indulging in the next best thing: a Parrot Bebop drone you can use to record an aerial view of your vacay.
More importantly, to get the feeling of piloted elegance, consider packing Prada's Pilot aviator glasses, which have the traditional aviator nose bridge detail with exaggerated cat-eye frames. Once you land (even if it's just in your mind) we have you set for tennis, and reserving a coveted spot on the beach (just lay down Kate Spade's witty "Reserved" towel and declare your territory). Click through to see recommendations for an ideal (and somewhat head-in-the-clouds) Hamptons weekend.
