While you may be scanning the stores looking for a cute beach coverup to sport in the Hamptons this summer, we're here to snap you back to reality. Because let's be real - when has June ever really been that warm of a month out East? It's not a barely there, cotton scarf you need - but a legit coat! Obviously, we're not suggesting you pull up in a North Face puffer and bikini...
Be the smartest of your friends and snatch up Pondichérie's brilliantly chic Saachi Coat. No matter how warm it may be in town, on the beach it's breezy and humid and prime place to catch a cold. A perfect mix of Montauk meets East Hamptons, it's basically the bohemian version of Gwyneth Paltrow. Designed in a heavy weight textile with an open front, and all too convenient side pockets, finally feel free to be beachy, practical and stylish all at once!
As for July and August, when it is in fact prime tanning time and you don't have to worry about getting the chills, Pondichérie's also got an entire collection of caftans, tunics and more to fill your summer wardrobe needs.
