Fash­ion for fall is al­ways fun and ex­cit­ing. Though it’s still the mid­dle of Au­gust, we look for­ward to fall so we can grab our lay­ers of cash­mere and wool, get cozy, and en­joy the very best time on the East End: our long and stun­ning In­dian sum­mer. As Coco Chanel said, “Fash­ion fades; only style re­mains the same,” and in this is­sue, look for styles that ex­em­plify our way of life out East: the chic yet downto-earth de­signs that we en­joy wear­ing here.

Re­cently some­one posted on my Face­book time­line that the Hamp­tons aren’t the Hamp­tons at all; each town has its own dis­tinc­tive per­son­al­ity, and that is so true. East Hamp­ton has a com­pletely dif­fer­ent look and feel than Southamp­ton. Mon­tauk is beachy, a lit­tle rugged, and now very fash­ion­for­ward. Sag Har­bor re­tains the small-town feel it had when it was a whal­ing vil­lage so long ago. Even my lit­tle ham­let of East Quogue has its own per­son­al­ity. Westhamp­ton Beach is open late nights on sum­mer week­ends, in­clud­ing its shop­ping des­ti­na­tions and ice cream spots, with mu­sic from the Beach Bak­ery Cafe waft­ing into the street. It’s a great des­ti­na­tion for fam­i­lies or a place to con­clude your night out. Each town has many dif­fer­ent cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories shops to choose from, but when you start to ex­plore this time of year, you will see they have one thing in com­mon: fash­ions for fall in all of the win­dows.

We will be all across the East End with this week­end’s events! They in­clude the 69th an­nual Artists & Writ­ers Char­ity Soft­ball Game, the 2017 Bow Wow Meow Ball for the An­i­mal Res­cue Fund of the Hamp­tons, and An In­ti­mate Evening Un­der the Stars with Michael Bolton, then we fin­ish off the week­end on Sun­day with Ellen’s Run! Think fash­ion fall for­ward, shop our unique vil­lages across the Hamp­tons, en­joy all that this beau­ti­ful place and time bring to you, and I’ll see you in town.
