Fashion Forward: Summer Styles
When it comes to summer fashion, the clothes get simple and accessories make the outfit. In tonight's Fashion Forward, 7's Diana Diaz shows us summer's must-have trends.
WSVN -- If you want to know what's hot this summer, look at Hollywood.
Stars like Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton are carrying the hottest designer bags, and J-Lo is sporting the trendiest sunglasses around.
But there's more you need to add to your wardrobe to be sure you have the latest finishing touches.
At Bebe, on Lincoln Road, you can find the hottest bags. Keep in mind, it's all about size and color.
Morgan Manry: "We're seeing lots of oversized bags with metal embellishments. You're seeing a lot of quilting this season, for the more casual look, you're having the oversized straw bags."
But, if you are going out for a night on the town, scale down to a small clutch.
When it comes to summer footwear, it's all about the sandals.
Look out for patent leather and heels made of cork, straw and even wood.
Morgan Manry: "They range from very, very flat and jeweled to very, very high stiletto or platform. Here in South Florida you can get away with any or all of them."
Summer hair goes simple: Forget big updos, just go for a fashionable headband.
Morgan Manry: "Headbands are back. It goes in with the 60s mod look."
They come in all colors and match with just about anything.
For the lastest designer sunglasses, check out Macy's in Dadeland Mall.
Ivonne Amor: "Youre going to want to go for large plastic sunglasses, those are definitely a trend and also the shields, which wrap around your face."
If you don't know what color to get, white is going to be the most popular.
And of course, no outfit is complete without some great jewelry.
Ivonne Amor: "For this summer, what's going to be fun is lucite and lots of plastic."
Think 60s mod -- the bigger, the bolder, the brighter, the better.
Ivonne Amor: "If you're going to pick a piece of jewelry for summer, I would say go for a big, oversized cuff bracelet. Those are fun, and they come in all different colors."
Diana Diaz: "And, of course, this summer you'll also want to have a large belt to mix and match with all your outfits."
