Put a t-shirt under it!!
Another 90’s trend that had everyone plunging right after seeing it on their street style icons. It’s no wonder that this style became popular again because it is that easy to recreate especially if you’re on a budget . It also exudes a laid-back and casual vibe. If you’re not yet ready to let go of your summer outfits, then you definitely should try this one.
Now if you’re in a tropical country just like the Philippines and considering we do not have a fall but a rainy season, we can still attempt to wear this “put a t-shirt under it trend”. The secret is to finding and choosing the right fabric that’s appropriate with the weather. Take cotton, silk, chiffon for instance.
Layering is such a fun thing to do and if you’re convinced to try this but do not know how given the bipolar weather (One moment it’s dark, gloomy and raining, the other half of the day, the sun is shining brightly and you’re sweating like hell) you have to choose wisely.
If you want to be safe, then go for a rounded neck white or black tee together with a fancy or a simple chiffon or silk dress or even your spaghetti strap tops with a V-neck design. Remember the high-low trick.
If you want to stand out, then you can go printed tees or printed dresses. I saw this patched dress with a t-shirt under it at a ZARA store. You can opt for that instead.
Complete the look with a flat shoes, slides or slip ons and a choker or scarf. Lastly, don’t forget to bring with you your trusty outerwear in case it will rain.
