Holy Hamptons! I wanted to be whisked away to the prestigious vacation destination the minute I saw this Fashionisto. The Long Island hot spot’s recognition goes beyond summer getaway to its summer fashion. Inhabitants of this area have gained notoriety for their sharp prep-wear built for June through August. This Fashionisto flawlessly flaunts the renowned preppy style here in central Florida. I found him modeling the Hamptons look to a T in bright magenta sailor stripes (it is an island after all) and summer white trousers that surely would earn him entrance to Diddy’s annual white party on the island.

How To: To pull off the same shoreline style, start with a horizontal striped tee. Choose a shirt with brightly colored stripes to especially stick with the Hamptons flare. White may be an intimidating color due to possible spillage, but it’s worth the risk for these pants. Feel free to stylize them by cuffing or rolling their hems at the ankle. Tie the look together with a casual sneaker such as these by OBEY or Vans.
