Summertime is the best time to have fun strutting your style but before you spend a penny. Seven's style expert Gretta Monahan is here with her "Summer Must Have's" in Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta: "It's time for you to show off your summer style, but I don't want you to get caught into any trend traps so come check out my summer must have's."
Gretta Monahan: "So to keep you covered from head to toe, step into a new sandal.
Gretta Monahan: "OK, everyone knows that you have a closet full of sandals, but to be hip in '08 they need to be gladiators.
Gretta Monahan: "These roman themed soles are not reserved for Russell Crowe with wealth of celebrities are supporting them, and they are without a doubt, the must-have shoe of the season.
Gretta Monahan: "So you can wear them with almost anything from dresses, to shorts, to pants, it works. And take a look every designer is making them so you can can get them at any price point.
Gretta Monahan: "Even with the temperatures rising, summer scarves make you look instantly cool."
Gretta Monahan: "And the scarf is the easiest and most inexpensive way to get the summer hot colors into your wardrobe."
Gretta Monahan: "So try a scarf instead of a necklace."
Gretta Monahan: "And when you get tired of it on your neck, tie it onto a bag."
Gretta Monahan: "For something comfortable and chic, try the high-waisted skirt."
Gretta Monahan: "I know what you're thinking. This 70's trend can be tough, but this summer, done in a skirt, it's a cinch."
Gretta Monahan: "What's great about this little skirt is that you can pair it with any top in your closet."
Gretta Monahan: "Almost forgot, whenever you're wearing a full skirt, make sure the top is fitted.
Gretta Monahan: "Another trend, jazz up all your neutrals with neon."
Gretta Monahan: 'Slide on a hot heel or slip into a fun flat. It's best done in accessories but I love shoes the best.
Gretta Monahan: "If neon shoes aren't for you, you can still touch on the trend by nailing it with neon."
Gretta Monahan: "Nothing says summer like a great pair of shades, and the ones you need now are translucent."
Gretta Monahan: "They come in all shapes and sizes, but big and bold is where I would go."
Gretta: "From clear to color there's definitely a hue for you, maybe even two."
Gretta Monahan: "The hottest celebrity trend all year has been recycled bags, and the beach tote is no different. Not only are you helping the environment while enjoying it, it's a great way to carry your favorite beach bag musts. Sun block, hat towels, mags, and H2O of course.
Gretta Monahan: "And top off your summer spree, with a cool new hat. I'm Gretta, for Gretta's Got It.
