Heat Up Your Night With Summer Fashions

Heat Up Your Night With Summer Fashions

How can your summer nights get hotter?

Lori Bergamotto, a contributing editor for People StyleWatch magazine, showed how on The Early Show Friday with four summer looks to spice up your summer nights.

Feminine dresses in flattering silhouettes and sexy, night out tops are still very much in, Bergamotto said. She added rompers and jumpsuits are making a comeback as the two new starts of the summer trend season.

As for accessories, Bergamotto suggested, look for flirty, sparkly extras on flat sandals and for bags, opt for unique textures in bright colors.

What about hair and makeup?

Bergamotto said you should keep your hair and makeup simple, but sexy. Think sun kissed skin, she said, with gleaming lids and glossy lips. As for your hair, Bergamotto told CBS News you should have a seductive, tousled look that says “controlled chaos.”


Dress: BCBG Max Azria cotton jersey dress, $108

Earrings, Sequin Bangles: Roberta Freyman brass bangles, $135; 212 585 3767

Clutch: Roberta Freyman “Bali” cotton fold over clutch, $95; 212 585 3767

Shoes: Charles David metallic leather heels, $215; 310 659 7110

The key here is to look for flowy styles that are sexy, chic, and just bare enough. A bold color like this is a departure from the little black dress but just as versatile.

Jersey is a cool and comfortable, stretchy material for summer.

This particular style, with the self tie, lets you cinch the waist as much or as little as you need to get the nicest shape for your figure. It’s a retro ’70s style that gets a modern upgrade with dressy wedges or high heels. Taller women or women with leaner bodies really look best in this trend.

Jumpsuits are one stop styling just add accessories and go.

The loose, draping shape of this particular jump suit is breezy enough for summer nights and super chic.

You can take this piece either way, for day or for night. We dressed it up with killer heels and pretty gold accessories for evening.
