Style Agenda:
Out and About in the Hamptons


A big part of summer in the Hamptons revolves around socializing, whether it’s a candlelit backyard dinner party, live music at sunset, or experiencing art in larger-than-life settings. We’ve rounded up a few upcoming events that are on our radar, as well as some outfit inspiration sure to get you out of any I’ve-got-nothing-to-wear rut.

Yes Way Rosé

Style Agenda: Out and About in the Hamptons

The Rosé Project
Wine and Dinner Series

Friday, July 28th at 7PM (cocktails), 8PM (dinner)

The Surf Lodge

It makes sense that the Hamptons would serve as a backdrop for a dinner in celebration of rosé season, but Kristin Tice Studeman, the founder of the Rosé Project, a new food and wine dinner series featuring well-known chefs around the country, wants to make it educational, too. For the occasion, Studeman has tapped Ari Taymor of the Standard in Los Angeles and Dan Kluger of Loring Place to jumpstart a dialogue about the versatility of rosé when it comes to food pairings. (Spoiler alert: It’s not just for sipping on the beach.) Next up: Melia Marden of the Smile, who will host a dinner on the 28th with a menu that highlights the East End’s seasonal produce. When you’re appropriately buzzed, take a stroll over to the Surf Bazaar and visit the rose-hued pop-up shop featuring beach-ready pieces by Ulla Johnson, Ryan Roche, and Brother Vellies.

There are tickets available for cocktails and silent auction, as well as the dinner party afterward. The auction is available now for pre-bids through Artsy.
