Summer is in the full force and the Hamptons are filled with visitors and locals. Window displays in shops down Main Street are packed with the latest trends of sandals, beach bags, cover-ups, and accessories. But, before you shop any further, check out Betches' newest summer campaign: "#SummerofBetches." Betches, everyone's favorite satirical social handle, is the brand for the girl with a big personality and a lot of style. As the leading millennial brand, Betches is taking New York and the Hamptons by storm with their female-driven digital company.
Betches started as a college blog in 2011 by Samantha Fishbein, Jordana Abraham, and Aleen Kuperman. Today, it's a viral social media and leading digital humor company. On a monthly basis, the brand sees an increase of 100,000 followers and over the past year alone their Instagram account has grown by 1.3 million followers.
