No matter where you'll be this summer, you'll want to blend in with the crowd. From Blue Hill blue bloods to Bridgehampton babes, here's what they're wearing.

Manhattan
Mantra:
"No, really, I love the city when it's empty. Really, I do."
Sunglasses:
Robert Marc No. 515 sunglasses ($295): the marriage of Jackie O. and Mary J.
Swimsuit:
Eres laser-cut tanks ($330) are sleek and yet simple enough for the Carmine Street Rec Center.
Uniform:
Heat-beating white Club Monaco layering skirts ($49) and a Chanel surfer tote ($575).
Shoes:
Adidas Yoga Mei sneakers ($70 at Transit). They keep the grime out from between your toes.

Maine
Mantra:
"Martha who?"
Sunglasses:
If they're new, they'd better not look it. Let Tom Cruise be your guide: Risky Business or Top Gun.
Swimsuit:
Something from L.L. Bean will do just fine.
Uniform:
Celine's Marimekko print dress is a good update on Lilly Pulitzer ($680). Top it off with a weathered Hermès head scarf ($250).
(Dip in salt water, bake in sun, repeat.)
Shoes:
Flat Jack Rogers sandals ($75 at Calypso).

Hamptons
Mantra:
"I never dated Josh Sagman. Except that one dinner at Haru."
Sunglasses:
Christian Roth shades ($198; Morgenthal Frederics) are large enough to obscure your identity -- nobody will recognize you from the Rocco's door scene in "the documentary."
Swimsuit:
Dior bikini -- the smaller the better ($200–$300).
Uniform:
A midriff-baring Juicy Couture sweatsuit ($144 at Macy's). Keep your raw foods in a boxy white patent-leather Tod's tote ($1,100).
Shoes:
Edmundo Castillo slides ($425). Not great for sand or lawns. But does that really matter?

Upstate
Mantra:
"The Hamptons are, like, way too much of a scene."
Sunglasses:
Chanel. "Borrowed" backstage during the couture.
Swimsuit:
Louis Vuitton -- chic but crunchy ($365).
Uniform:
Marni striped trousers (about $500), Bottega Veneta tote ($3,800). (Never mind that it costs as much as a summer share. Remember: The look is haute hippie.)
Shoes:
Bass sandals. From the outlet, of course.
