It’s getaway time! Here are three hot destinations and their fashion essentials, including the ideal sunglasses for your trip. Not only will they protect your eyes, they’ll add the final touch to your perfect look.

The Hamptons

The legendary Hamptons are a cluster of fashionable villages and hamlets on the South Fork of Long Island famous for fabulous beaches, fishing and kayaking. To match with the very preppy elegance of the area, mix casual chic clothing with refined accessories. A horizontally striped sweater, polo shirt, or sundress are a must for this jaunt. Add Nautica or Lacoste sunglasses for a classic yet modern look perfectly in sync with the Hamptons style.

Los Angeles

To hit the beach and soak up the sun, try Los Angeles. You’ll not only revel in the heat, you’ll enjoy the chic but casual ambiance of its top-notch restaurants and bars. Hippie chic predominates—simple basics layered with flowing, patterned garments. A pair of Nike aviators is the perfect match for the relaxed West Coast attitude. Top it all off with a pair of light, comfortable shoes and a backpack to carry your beach gear, including plenty of good quality sun lotion to protect your skin.

Thailand

If you’re more into adventure travel, Thailand is a top destination. Exotic excursions and breathtaking landscapes make it an ideal place to explore. Here the trend is to action wear—pair a sport bathing suit with silk shorts and a structured camisole on top. Remember to bring something a little warmer because temperatures can change quickly in the mountains. Choose a pair of versatile shoes you can use on the hiking trail as well as in the city.
