This year, we’re bringing you a break down of all of our favorite weekend getaways. Because what’s a Summer Friday good for without a place to escape?

With Memorial Day Weekend upon us, we’re getting ready to get out of NYC, beat the heat and hit the beach.  And while The Hamptons are always a classic, these days we’re all about Montauk. This surf town on the eastern end of Long Island is known for its killer surf and easy-going spirit and legendary parties. Here’s our list of where to go and what to wear…

1. Surf Lodge

This hotel and bar is the perfect antidote for a long week spent working in the big city. Known for its raw, untouched coastline, this is the place to let off some steam this summer. With a chilled out vibe and notorious parties, this is a resting place for locals, city-dwellers and artists alike. At night, the outdoor space is ignited with beach bonfires and good music.

2. Ruschmeyers

This “summer camp for adults” was originally built in 1952 on three acres of lush, lakeside woodland in Montauk, and was used as a camp for kids for years. It’s been recently transformed into a chic, balsa-wood-infused destination where all the cool kids from the city flock for good drinks and dancing all summer long. They even have a giant teepee—a perfect for holing up with your pals…

3. What To Wear

Now that you know where to go, the more important matter at hand is what to wear. Since Montauk is known for it’s laid back attitude, follow suit with your wardrobe. Pack a slew of cut-off denim shorts, like our Cut Off in Distressed Light or our Relaxed Cut Off Short in Army Green. Paired with a tee and sunnies and you’re set for lunch on the beach. For night, opt for cool, light denim like our Zipper Chino in Tencil Denim with our Pleated Collar Tank for the perfect dressed-up-but-laid-back look.

So this summer take the train to Montauk for a little R&R and beach time. You can thank us later! Shop our entire collection for more summertime staples here.
