Summer Whites, For Less Green

Wearing white is a sure hit when it comes to your summer look.

And, in The Early Show's "Chic on a Shoestring" Wednesday, Glamour magazine's executive fashion editor at large, Suze Yalof Schwartz, proves you don't need to spend a lot to look fantastic. She shows how to update this traditional summer look using the latest accessory trends.

In "Chic," expensive "splurge" outfits are shown along with much more reasonably priced combinations called "steals." It's often hard to tell the difference.

Schwartz says brights, neutrals and gold are "in" this year for accessories.


We all have the classic white button-down and white pants. If not, you should. Throw on this season's thick gold chain necklace, a neutral suede bag and brown clunky shoes to make it new.
