Barbara Trujillo

This vintage store looks like a film set from an old Western: Trujillo offers an impeccable range of antique turquoise belt buckles and polished fetish necklaces, all against a backdrop of collectible American folk art.
2466 Montauk Hwy., 631-537-3838

Calypso St. Barth

Calypso St. Barth boutiques are dotted all along the East End, primarily because their eponymous collection of silk wrap dresses, tie-dyed scarves, and paper-thin cashmere cardigans works so well at the beach (after all, the chainlet was born in St. Barths).

Jacques & Gilles

This boutique inside Andre Balazs' Sunset Beach Hotel has gotten a new name, face-lift, roomier digs, plus a slate of fresh-to-the-island items, like Erés bikinis and Paul & Joe sundresses.
35 Shore Rd. SHELTER ISLAND 631-749-2001

Life-Style

What once was just a pilates studio now houses a full-scale boutique with a jaw-droppingly deep selection of favorite lines like Isabel Marant, Repetto, and Clu.

Lisa Perry

Fashion designer Perry's collection—which nods to '60s-era icons like Mary Quant—features irresistibly appealing A-line felt dresses, splashed with geometric shapes and numbers. As a nice complement, Perry also sells coffee-table books, fun stationery, and beach towels.

Maison

24 Jonathan Adler alums Allison Julius and her brother Louis Marra quit their jobs last year and decamped for the Hamptons, where they quickly established the most buzzed-about shop in the area. Fornasetti screens, two-foot-high Bearbricks toys, and Lucite Adirondack chairs are just a few of the hits in this gorgeously conceived spot.

Out of the Closet

Set away from the street but fronted by an impossible-not-to-notice porch packed with decadently dressed mannequins, this long-standing vintage boutique is full of super-high-end castoffs from the area's mansions. Many marquee name designers are represented here—from Pucci to Halston—and while the offerings aren't exactly cheap, they're definitely plentiful.

Urban Zen

Donna Karan's foundation works to empower children all over the world; the Sag Harbor boutique is one of three retail spaces in the country. There are Karan-designed cashmere dresses and sweaters, plus a slew of home accessories, like teak salad bowls and silk throw pillows.
