Style to Inspire: Elizabeth McKay

Love fashion and dream about classic Hampton’s style? Then today’s Style to Inspire feature will be right up your alley! Meet Elizabeth McKay, founder and designer of the American sportswear line Elizabeth McKay. Her designs are bright, fresh, feminine and unapologetically preppy. Put it all together and Elizabeth creates a classic, ladylike look that’s sure to make you smile. I especially like the prints that grace all of her collections (my “right-now” favorite — this ikat inspired shift dress!). Read on to learn more about how Elizabeth became a fashion designer, how she conceives a design and sees it to production, and what it’s like to work in the industry today.
