Turn Up the Heat with 5 Sizzling Fashion Trends
April 17, 2006

Do you want to look like a celebrity trendsetter this summer? Only "Extra" went inside one of L.A.'s hippest boutiques, Patty Faye, to find out the key ingredients to looking like a sizzling star in the summer months.

Patty Faye co-owners Carla Helmholz and Erin Anderson shared their impeccable style sense with us, revealing how cool and breezy can be so easy! So here's the fashion countdown, starting with number five:

5. A sexy sandal: "They look great with jeans. They look great with dresses," Carla said. "They're kind of an all-around good look."

4. A bohemian tunic, like the ones worn by Tori Spelling and Marcia Cross. They are versatile with jeans, or for the more daring, you can wear them as mini dresses.

3. A pair of skin-baring shorts, like those often fashioned by "O.C." starlet Mischa Barton. But if you're leg shy, there's no need to worry. These sexy shorts will be available in every length and style, from long jeans to short cottons.

2. Pencil jeans: The always-stylish Sienna Miller and Kate Bosworth love these sexy jeans. They're hot right now and everybody is wearing them in every fabric and color.

1. Fun, flirty dresses, preferably of white cotton. The Simpson sisters wear flowing, light dresses that are comfortable and suitable for all occasions.

But what's this summer's biggest fashion faux pas?

"The biggest no-no is to conform," Erin told us. "There are so many options. Find a look that suits you best and embrace it."
