Resort Fashion that’s Sweet (and Tart)

This spring, resort’s bright berries and tangerines chase the gray away.

We’ve gone though the collections and gathered cheery pieces that will work in every price range.


Choose a dressy number for a wow dinner at Barton G in Miami (if you go, order one of the over-the-top cocktails) or something a little simpler for lunch and shopping with the gals in South Beach. (Note that the two-tone dress puts the bright color by your face—very flattering look.)

Flip Flops

They still rule the beach. And we have some bright pink ones you can wear on the sand, and some sandals that are strictly for sipping a pina colada next to the pool.
