With Figawi Regatta Memorial Day Weekend now behind us, sad face, we are forced to move on with our lives in the busy workplace. While Figawi weekend may be more debauchery than relaxation, the rest of the summer in Nantucket is a healthy haven and getaway. Each year New Englanders and New Yorkers carry their vintage fabric duffles packed with adorbs Nantucket clothing on one arm and a case of beer in the other arm before loading a ferry to Nantucket. In order to avoid the crowds, some Nantucket-goers prefer to fly. Lucky for Nantucket air travelers, flying Cape Air or Jetblue is pretty much as cool as flying private, as the tiny jets fit only 8 passengers per plane. Going on an East Coast vacation this summer and wondering what to pack or what to wear in Nantucket? Read on for our Nantucket style tips…
Nantucket clothing is similar to what you would wear in Martha’s Vineyard or Fisher Island and is always preppy! It is best to pack light colors, pastels, and creams with navy or red accents. These preppy style choices will get you through the day and into the evenings on your summer vacation or weekend away. Nautical drop waist dresses or fit and flare dresses with a ruffle skirt are so on trend for summer 2014 and perfect for brunch at The White Elephant, daytime window shopping on Main St, or evening cocktails at the Pearl. Below, we show what to wear in Nantucket for summer vacation. Both of our dresses are by Erin Fetherston.
Style Tip: Nantucket is slightly more conservative than the Hamptons, but your summer wardrobe should work well for both locations. Practicality!
