ERIC HIMEL STYLE
Beach fashion, five ways.
HAMPTON CHIC Hamptons are one part Americana, one part nautical and all summer sophistication. Remember, this is where New Yorkers go to play, so you’ve got to keep up with the Jones. Opt for classic white dresses for her and linen suits for him.
MIAMI MAMBO Miami is known for color, color, color so why not do the unexpected and go for anti-color instead. Just remember, with those hot late Latin nights, keep it sporty and cool with dressed-up shorts for him and feminine, sexy athleisure wear for her.
SEXY ST. BARTH’S Swimming in Champagne on one of the most exclusive islands in the world is where the sexy rich go to play - why don’t you dress the part? For him and her, look for easy body con smart casuals.
ALOHA HAWAII Goodbye ubiquitous Hawaiian shirts, hello modern sexy florals! Flowers aren’t the problem with this trend, how they are worn are, so choose wisely. Modern floral shirts for him and summery, flowy, floral summer dresses for her.
MAGICAL MUSTIQUE Opt for outfits that reflect the colors and culture of this intoxicating Caribbean getaway. Think color- block tops for him and diaphanous (thin and airy) dresses or skirts for her.
