With the Fourth of July hours away, many city dwellers are packing up — or have already — for seaside sojourns. More often than not, such summer jaunts call for casual clothes, but 10 design insiders won't leave behind their personal style. Here's a look at what they plan to stow away as they slip out of town.
The Loot: Leggings.
"My collection of cashmere knits."
"And T-shirts — let's be really honest here."
Summer shift dresses. "I take a few cues from my fat years."
The Skinny: "It's the way I like to dress in the summer and when I'm in Palm Beach [Fla.]. I have lived a resort life for a long time, although I won't be any more. I won't be going anywhere for years with everything that is going on [at work]."
Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte
The Loot: "One of my mom's necklaces."
A purse. "I have to bring a purse because [my sister] Cate won't carry one."
A cardigan of some sort.
Sundries: A good book and "a lot of music, because I am always changing what I listen to."
The Skinny: "Cate and I like traveling to places we have never been before. When we can't do that, we spend all our free time in the San Francisco Bay Area where we grew up. We'll go to all the nearby beach towns like Monterey, Carmel and Capitola. This summer we're just working on our collection. If we go anywhere, it will be last-minute."
The Loot: A.P.C. ballerina flats.
Thakoon cream-striped jacquard dress with two straps.
Comme des Garçons fuchsia watercolor floral printed skirt.
"Striped T-shirt I got from Okura in Tokyo."
APC blue plaid Madras collection dress.
Isabel Marant gray sweatshirt and J. Crew chinos.
The Skinny: "I love going to all the different ponds in Truro [Mass., on Cape Cod], playing tennis and eating fried clams."Amanda Brooks
The Loot: Seventies surfer-style rainbow flip-flops.
Black Eres one-piece bathing suit with boy-short bottoms.
Seventies, hippy paisley wrap skirts.
Sundries: "I always take a book. Right now I'm reading 'Inherited Risk: Errol and Sean Flynn in Hollywood and Vietnam.' And '24' DVDs — I'm obsessed."
The Skinny: "We go to the North Fork of Long Island. It's easy."
The Loot: "Three are members of my family."
One of her bubble dresses in linen.
Orange double-layered shorts.
Sundries: Flip-flops and sun protection.
The Skinny: "We like going to Shelter Island [off New York's Long Island]. The water is instant meditation for me. There is something very soothing about the water — whether it is being near a racing river or by the sea — just contemplating what it's about."
The Loot: Scuba gear.
Black Calvin Klein string bikini and a purple Body Glove one.
Her oldest pair of Levi's cutoffs.
Unis cotton dresses.
Sundries: "I shouldn't, but I bring my computer — just in case."

A set of gold bangle bracelets.
Scoop velvet flip-flops.
Tracy Feith slipdress.

The Skinny: Nantucket, St. Barths, Harbor Island and Shelter Island top her list for weekend getaways. "I like to have absolutely no structure or plans — to be able to wear no makeup, a pareo, and relax with my husband, my baby and family and friends."
The Loot: Louis Vuitton tote.
Marc Jacobs sunglasses.
Cole Haan and Mui Mui lightweight tunics and caftans.Sundries: "I take a break from my heels, relaxing on the sandy beaches at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and Spa in my Jimmy Choo thong sandals.
The Skinny: "My husband and I often escape to St. Thomas, it's close and not as crowded as South Beach [Miami]. This is the destination for good food, such as Hervé Chassin's French cuisine, and for relaxation and amazing recreation."
Sara Albrecht, owner of Ultimo
The Loot: Giambattista Valli dress. "A dress is an entire outfit."
"The perfect shoe — Manolos. It's always a heel. I don't care if I'm going to the pool or for a walk."
A small, square metallic Kotur evening bag. "It's tiny, but it fits a lot of stuff."
Big hoop earrings.
Sundries: "Of course, sexy lingerie from La Perla."
The Skinny: "I keep a bag of stuff that I only travel with and I decide at the last minute which dress to take. You get a formula. Now I need to go somewhere."

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
