Summer House, the hit Bravo TV show following the lives of NYC’s hottest Hampton’s goers, has created a new generation of fashionistas along with the entertainment it provides. Styling duo Danielle and Alix—popular for their work with talent such as Lindsay Lohan, Alix Earle, Josie Canseco, Kara Del Toro, Camille Kostek, and more—have been responsible for many of the looks and trends of the show’s starlets on- and off-screen. Take a look!
Danielle & Alix and their first Summer House client, Paige Desorbo, have created countless fashion moments together from Hamptons weekends and MTV red carpets to Giggly Squad Tours and Watch What Happens Live episodes. “Styling Paige is a collaborative process; she typically has a vision going into a fitting and loves to explore and stay ahead of trends,” D&A say. “We can lean into her super girly side, or other times deliver something edgier and unexpected. It’s always fun to dress according to location.”
D&A: Paige, what pieces are you gravitating toward this summer?
Paige Desorbo: I’m in love with the maxi trend; maxi skirts and dresses are definitely my go-to look this summer.
What’s your method to summer shopping?
Desorbo: I love to splurge, but when treating yourself, that must be put on pause. I’m always trying to find Jacquemus dupes.
The duo also works with Loverboy founder Amanda Batula. “She has the coolest masculine yet feminine style, which aligns with our personal style. We love men’s tailored inspired pieces, summer suiting, and little dresses paired with oversize jackets.” Danielle & Alix worked with Amanda on her Summer House Season 7 Reunion look as well as her first-ever Met Gala party look.
D&A: Amanda, how do you describe your personal style?
Amanda Baluka: Relaxed, effortless, and a bit androgynous. I’m not big on patterns or bold accessories and tend to stick with neutral colors as it’s easier to put together a look when most of your clothes match. I’m usually dressed more casually and love that effortless, “I didn’t put any thought into this” look, when in reality I tried on multiple outfits before settling on one. When I do dress up, I like feeling more feminine, sexy, and confident. But comfort is my priority, so I stay away from anything that requires crazy undergarments or taping to stay in place.
Who’s your summer style icon?
Baluka: I pull a lot of my inspiration from random accounts on TikTok and explore pages on IG. I feel like there hasn’t been one specific person that I’ve found who does both the tomboy chic and sophisticated minimalist the way I like. But some of my favorite accounts to stalk at the moment are @aresaixala94 (Tik-Tok), @elynnekeizer (Tik Tok), @millyhobbs (IG), @imogenstyling (IG), and of course @danielleandalix. Their personal style is chef’s kiss.
The duo is looking forward to styling the newest addition to the house, Sam Feher. “Starting with a new client like Sam is so exciting. Having the ability to dive in and develop her style as the ‘new girl’ is a cool opportunity,” they say.
D&A: Which workout classes are your fave Out East?
Sam Feher: I’ve always been majorly into HIIT workouts, so Barry’s is definitely on my list. But this summer, I’m thinking about mixing in some low-impact formats, so catch me at the New York Pilates in Bridgehampton!
D&A: Go-to athleisure brands?
Feher: SET Active is my go-to, plus Talentless, Alo, and Skims.
Danielle & Alix will be out and about in the Hamptons all summer long. The duo will be partnering with the first-ever Styling Suite at the Casa Del Sol House on outfitting and styling guests of the exclusive house. With that, the two are launching their own athleisure collaboration with Terez, which they’ll be sporting around around town and hosting events Out East with their clients.
