Fashion Forward: Summer Dresses
Hot, sweaty, and sticky. Now that school's almost out, summer is officially here. But if you can't find comfortable clothes, 7's Shireen Sandoval says the right dress can solve any fashion forward dilemma.
WSVN -- Some like'em short -- some like'em long, and some like'em somewhere in between.
Desiree Twist from A Nose For Clothes: "You can make what you want of it, there are all different kinds, different fabrics, looks."
It's summer in South Florida, and for any fashion forward female that means only one thing!
Desiree: "You have to have to have a dress."
At a Nose for Clothes, they say dresses are gettin' all dolled up with inspiration from around the world.
Desiree: "We are seeing some prairie, we are seeing some western, we are seeing some Moroccan, some bohemian, all kinds of cultures."
You'll lasso any guy you lay your eyes on with this prairie tank dress and cowboy boots.
Desiree: "You will see it in magazines, on runways. Western is coming in and it's gonna continue in through the rest of the summer."
But if smoking guns just isn't your style, fast forward from the wild west to the era of flower power.
Desiree: "Boho chic has a bit more gold, now they are they are bringing in silver metallics."
At Intermix they say forget about sacrificing comfort for style in these flower flowing dresses.
Melissa Feldman from Intermix: "You're not feeling tight and uncomfortable. They loose and flowy, the empire waist, it accentuates the figure."
Of course this season, the look is really all about the accessories, and when it comes to a fit for your feet, metallics are perfect.
Melissa: "You want to wear a gold sandal or maybe something in silver."
And chunky necklaces are number one it comes to your neck.
Melissa: "What you want to do is layer with tons and tons of accessories to make it fun and really pop."
A coral necklace makes this turquoise number shine even brighter, while basic brown is the perfect accent for a more Moroccan look.
But the biggest thing to remember this season, less is never more!
Melissa: "The more the better, right the look this season is to layer it on top of each other and your ready to go."
Also really in this season are oversized, extra big bags. They look great with summer dresses and there's nothing you cant fit inside of them.
