Pro Tips

Want to pack for a Hamptons weekend like fashion designer Nanette Lepore? Avoid "serious" luggage (like anything hard sided or with wheels), pick just three basic outfits that can go from day to evening, and bring only two pairs of shoes. And then accessorize, accessorize, accessorize: "a lightweight cashmere sweater or shawl with a beach-appropriate 'relaxed silhouette,' a pair of dramatic dangly earrings, a large colorful bangle, and a cloth Pucci hat that can be rolled up and stuffed into a beach bag." But, most important advice of all: "You don't want to look like you're trying so hard...You want to look like it's effortless, and everything just happened." [Wall Street Journal]
