With Manila’s summer heat, light clothing is a must! It’s almost always tempting to wear our summer uniform — that is tank top and shorts. Agree? But sometimes, it’s just too casual. What if you need to dress up a little for a dinner date or an afternoon cocktail? Here’s a smart casual style idea for summer!


If you read my ‘Easy Ways to Upgrade‘ post previously, I mentioned about wearing a cover up. But during summer, it’s not just possible especially if you expect to walk outdoors! Tip: Go for dressy, flowy tops! Here, I’m wearing an off-shoulder top with bow detail. The fabric is very light, which is definitely perfect for summer!


During summer, I try to avoid trousers as much as I can. I can’t take the feeling of fabric clinging onto my skin. I cannot! The heat is already too much to handle. LOL! But if it’s light and airy as this, why not?!


It’s even black, but I didn’t mind walking outside at 12nn. Haha!

Pairing a flowy top and airy pants can have a tendency to look as if I’m drowning with too much fabric. The trick is to wear a pair of footwear that can make you look taller. I wasn’t in the mood to wear heels though since it was a whole day affair. I slipped on my trusty block-heel sandals instead.


Hope you like this style idea! More photos below. And yup, MESSY HAIR, DON’T CARE! LOL!
