SHOP FOR (CHIC) WA­TER-REPELLANT PIECES

Skip the heavy hood­ies and go for a jacket made of a light­weight, wa­ter­proof ma­te­rial that won’t smother you. Also, swap your fave white sneak­ers for a more rain­friendly leather pair— un­less you want to walk around in squishy shoes!

White top, P1,995, Mango, Glo­ri­etta 1 1/L. Denim shorts, P915, For­ever 21, SM Mega­mall Bldg.a 2/L. Mint green jacket, P4,465, Top­shop, Robin­sons Gal­le­ria 1/L. White Ace leather sneak­ers, P3,590, Keds, Glo­ri­etta 3, 1/L. Hand­bag, P2,095, Call It Spring, Green­belt 3 1/L.

AL­WAYS TOTE A STYLISH COVER-UP

…es­pe­cially if you’re go­ing sleeve­less for the day. A classic denim jacket—or a more airy cham­bray but­ton-down— can keep you cozy on chilly days, and can be paired with both ca­sual and dressy en­sem­bles.

Striped top, P599, H&M, SM Makati 1/L. Denim jacket, P4,230, Ever New, Power Plant Mall 2/L. Printed trousers, P1,595, Dorothy Perkins, Robin­sons Gal­le­ria 1/L. Gray bucket bag, P3,199, Charles & Keith, Power Plant Mall 2/L. Mules, P2,245, Call It Spring. Hoop ear­rings, P290, Par­fois, SM Mega­mall Bldg.b 2/L.

Bal­ance out a turtle­neck’s cov­er­age with bare arms.

CHOOSE BREEZY, QUICK-DRY FAB­RICS

Weather-proof your smart ca­sual look by go­ing for pieces made with light­weight ma­te­rial like cot­ton, polyester, or linen. This way, you can go for a cov­ered-up look but still be comfy—whether it’s hot or driz­zly out­side.

Too-long bot­toms can drag on damp ground. Try cu­lottes!

MIND THE DE­TAILS

Date night or grab­bing cock­tails with the girls? A fit­ted top-and-skirt combo is eas­ily sexy; just add a feather­weight bomber jacket as a safety net. Also, leave the fancy silk or suede footwear at home. If you must wear stilet­tos, your best bets are those made out of plas­tic jelly or durable leather.

Blush turtle­neck blouse, P699, H&M. Satin jacket and asym­met­ri­cal skirt, both from H&M Con­scious Exclusive Col­lec­tion. Strappy leather heels, P2,390, and bag, P3,799, Charles & Keith. Ear­rings, P290, and ring, P390, both from Par­fois.

Look flirty in a calf-length skirt—it’s nei­ther too skimpy nor sti­fling.

WA­TER­PROOF YOUR HEELS

Jelly flats may look too ca­sual for the of­fice, so opt for heeled or wedge op­tions in a classy nude or black shade. They go well with even the most cor­po­rate of looks, and are also ver­sa­tile enough to be paired with an off-duty out­fit. (Think: a week­end mini dress!)

Li­lac top, P1,890, Sfera. Cream blazer, P2,290, and trousers, P1,490, both from H&M. Cream bag, P2,820, Ever New. Nude wedges, P5,999, Melissa, SM Aura Premier 2/L. Ear­rings, P290, neck­lace, P790, and watch, P1,990, all from Par­fois.

A cream blazer-and-slacks combo looks re­fresh­ing and is more for­giv­ing than white.

Don’t for­get your um­brella! Choose a cute, com­pact style that you’ll want to take ev­ery­where with you.

BRING OUT YOUR SCARVES

They’re ac­ces­sories you can eas­ily max­i­mize when temps change! Use one to add a fun de­tail to a plain out­fit when it’s warm, or drape it on when a down­pour starts.
