Stylish Hamptonites are spotted everyday; on the streets of Southampton, by the beaches in Montauk and in Sag Harbor restaurants. But how often is it that you can get an intimate peek inside the homes of these Hamptons trendsetters? Not often at all, which is why our friends over at StyleCaster got up close and personal with the members of the Hamptons best dressed list, which include Kelly Bensimon, Samantha Yanks, Katie Lee, Jill Stuart and many many more, allowing us to see what summer looks like for these style mavens.
Although the full story doesn't go live until 12 noon today, we have a sneak peek at two of the Stylish Hamptonites for you. Check out what Kelly Bensimon and Samantha Yanks have to say about their Hamptons style, and head over to StyleCaster to see who else made the list later today!
Q: How does your style differ when living in the Hamptons vs. the city?
A: Whether I'm in black tie or workout shorts, I maintain an easiness with style. Loose beach waves, minimal makeup, well-manicured feet and hands, simple dresses, and tasteful shoes. I dress for my lifestyle: ready to do and go anywhere anytime.
Q: If you had 5 minutes to throw something in a bag to head out east, what are three things you couldn't leave behind?
A: Eres bikini, Marie Eiffel or Nili Lotan caftan or dress and a straw hat from Anne Moore in Bridgehampton.
Q: What, to you, defines 'the Hamptons look'?
A: Relaxed glamour.
