The Hamptons are a go-to summer spot for the New York celebrity crowd, but even if you're not in the tristate area, you can slip into the locale's care-free spirit with Hilaria Baldwin's new collection for Lexington Company. Baldwin, who is a Hamptons regular with husband Alec Baldwin, collaborated with the clothing line to create beach-ready maxis, tops, dresses, and accessories, available online at lexingtoncompany.com (prices range from $39 to $245). And it's all for a good cause: 10 percent of profits will be donated to Guild Hall, a community and activity center in the area.
"My line is meant for a stylish weekend getaway: with blues, soft faded summer colors and light cotton for the day, a maxi for the evening, and everything you need for a day at the beach," Baldwin tells InStyle.com (she wears the Carmen dress, $245, above). Her favorite piece is the Alec shirtdress ($179), shown below. "It was inspired by my tendency to raid Alec's closet and belt his large dress shirts, which I even did when I was pregnant," she tells InStyle.com.
Her modified version is fit for a woman's body, and she suggests pairing it with a belt for an extra flattering waist cinch. Says Baldwin, "Most importantly, I wanted this collection to have something for everyone, just like the Hamptons does."
