Pastels are on-trend this season, and we’re getting major vintage vibes from this belted beauty.
Pack a matchy-matchy look — then pair the individual pieces with staples like denim shorts or a white tank to get double the wear.

Choose an item to splurge on — bonus points for versatility, like this dress-it-up-or-down skirt — and pair it with budget-friendly pops of color.

At the shoot
We jetted off to the Dominican Republic for a three-day cover shoot, with airfare and accommodations provided by Apple Vacations (Applevacations.com). Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa — an adults-only luxury resort with six bars and lounges, 10 restaurants, pools and activities on the white-sand Juanillo Beach — set the scene for a retro-inspired fashion spread.
