Summertime in the Hamptons doesn’t have to be all about polo shirts and cable knit sweaters (although it can be if you like). Our family has been lucky to spend the summer here for seasonal work and we’ve had a blast exploring all of the towns and villages. I love the aesthetic of the Hamptons- country, beach and modern industrial all blended so tastefully. Straw hats, caftans in neutral tones and gladiator sandals tend to be the go-to outfits for the mamas. Montauk has a little more of a colorful boho vibe, but still maintains that quintessential Hamptons’ vibe- relaxed but chic. As far as kids’ fashion in the Hamptons, it’s all about comfort! Popular brands on the East End include Pink Chicken and Ralph Lauren. In this fashion story, my daughter, Elise, and I spent the morning with Babiekins Magazine’s digital editor and photographer, Elizabeth Pettey. Elizabeth got some killer shots of Elise’s favorite summer outfits at some cool spots in East Hampton/Amagansett/Montauk. The outfits are a mix of textiles and colors and are light and comfortable for the summer.
