Looking Good on the L.I.E

What to wear on your trip out there

Most Hamptonites have a love/hate relationship with the Jitney. Yes, your ride may hit traffic, but this bus will also get you in the HOV lane. What starts as excitement and anticipation on the Friday afternoon ride out can turn to bitter sadness on the Sunday night return leg. Luckily, we’ve put together a full list of Jitney must-haves to make your ride as smooth as possible.

Wrap It Up
White +Warren’s
cashmere travel wrap basically has a cult following, and it only takes one touch to understand why. Though it’s been warn as a shawl on the red carpet, this glorified blanket is the ultimate travel accessory—wear it as a scarf for convenient style off the bus, then unfold it onboard for a super soft layer against the air conditioning. The question is not whether or not you need one, but how many colors it’s acceptable to own at once! ($298, whiteandwarren.com)

Luxe Loungewear
You never know who you’ll see on the Jitney, so you have to stay comfortable without looking like you’re traveling in your pajama pants. Sit pretty in Calypso’s Hilana Indigo cotton slub pant.  Stylish elements upgrade these joggers, like tie-dyed tassels and linen-inspired texture.  Paired with a white tee, simple sandles, and a colorful purse, these loungers won’t look lazy.

Sultry Sunglasses
Oversized sunglasses used to be a sure sign of a hangover, but luckily, the full-coverage style is in vogue this summer. Gucci’s oversize square frame will hide the results of your weekend, and shade your eyes from the afternoon sun glinting off the highway. And just in case your Montauk mystery man from last night makes an appearance, you have another excuse to go incognito. ($395, Gucci.com)

Flashy Footwear
Flatform slides are one of summer’s hottest trends, bringing the haute couture of a high heel to the comfort of your favorite slipper. Miu Miu’s glittered espadrille’s are the ultimate way to heighten an outfit—literally. The woven platform is summery and light, while the sparkly slide is fun and funky, and perfect to slip off while you curl up for the bus ride back to the city. ($475, Saks Fifth Avenue)
