Otherwise, the clothes were a fairly basic J.Crew proposition with a few winsome details: the red stitching on the buttons of a mini-trench, for example, or the signature printed lining in a white linen suit. The seafaring theme made itself felt in raw-hemmed cut-offs and striped tops (couple that theme with the faux family saga, and you ended up with a kind of Gilligan-meets-Lost scenario, with clothes to match).

Espadrilles by a surfing buddy who designs under the label Toms Shoes and jewelry by Subversive had a louche indolence that suggested a summer misspent by the sea.
