As preparations are underway for our annual Hamptons Most Stylish soirée, which takes place this weekend, we’re asking some of this year’s notable honorees for their secrets to always looking polished and put together.

Favorite New Brand: Covey Skin!
Best Fashion Advice You’ve Ever Been Given: Stick to investment pieces. I went through
a lot of phases of shopping at fast-fashion places, but the clothes never last and neither
do the trends. Find pieces you love, take care of them, and wear them forever!

Fashion Inspiration: I will forever be inspired by the ocean in all ways, but there’s a real part of me that leans toward fashion. I also look to friends often. I’m surrounded by the most amazing women who share similar passions. Another huge inspiration is right on the street. Walking around Montauk or NYC is constant creative input.

Sophie Bickley, Influencer

Best Fashion Advice You’ve Ever Been Given: Never be afraid to take risks with your fashion because fashion is an expression of yourself and if you wear what you feel confident in, that confidence will rub off on others. You can’t go wrong being yourself.
