Beach babe on a budget!
Lucy Hale knows how to get the perfect vacation look without blowing the bank. "I'm all about a maxi dress," the Mark brand ambassador, 24, says in a video to launch the new St. Barts Instant Vacation collection.
While some dresses can cost hundreds of dollars, her pick, the Island Elegance Maxi Dress, costs just $44 on Meetmark.com. "This is actually a high-low skirt so you get best of both worlds," the Pretty Little Liars standout says. "This is something that's so versatile. You can wear it out on the beach. Or you can add accessories and a belt and heels and you can wear it out."
Besides the perfect outfit, Hale says perfect beach beauty includes sun safety and beach waves. "Wear lots of sunscreen," Hale says of achieving the perfect, healthy glow. "I love the look of salt water hair. My hair really grabs onto it so I get almost this kind of texture, which is hard to replicate."
While Hale's hair naturally replicates the textured loose waves, get the look for yourself with That's Beachy Texturizing Surf Spray ($14, Meetmark.com).
Beyond vacation style, the most important tip is to take in your surroundings. "The best thing about a beach vacation, first of all, is that you're on a beach," Hale says. "You can't beat it."
