The rainy sea­son is the per­fect time for some­one liv­ing in a trop­i­cal coun­try like the Philip­pines to wear an­other layer of cloth­ing, usu­ally a jacket, to stay dry in wet weather and still look stylish.

For Sanya Lopez, though, putting on a jacket was some­thing she was not too fond of when she was younger.

“Kasi me­dyo mainitin ako,” says the 20-year-old ac­tress who played the Queen of Lireo, Hara Danaya, in En­can­ta­dia. “Nagja-jacket ako pag malamig lang ta­laga ’yong pana­hon.”

Things have changed since then. “Ni­tong huli, me­dyo na-ob­serve ko na nahi­hilig na ako sa jacket. Kasi, pag may nakikita akong jacket, ‘Ay, ang ganda nito!’ Gusto ko na.”

She adds, grin­ning, “Sig­uro dati, walang pam­bili kaya wala akong naa- ap­pre­ci­ate. He­hehe! Pagkain ta­laga ang in­u­una.”

Sanya now owns sev­eral jack­ets, and she al­ways brought one to her tap­ings of En­can­ta­dia. The show had a lot of fight scenes that made the cast mem­bers sweat it out.

“Ini­i­wasan namin na af­ter fight scenes na mag­babad sa stu­dio na ang lamig-lamig,” Sanya points out. “So min­san, nakakat­u­long din ’yong jacket na i-cover ka muna para me­dyo ’yong tem­per­a­ture mo, mag­ing okey.”

In­stead of jack­ets, like the ones on Sanya, you might opt for a sweater, says Melville. A sweater works well when paired with denim jeans and sneak­ers, he adds.

In putting to­gether a rainy-day out­fit for Sanya Lopez, Melville Sy rec­om­mends this shirt, pants, jacket, and booties combo. For some piz­zazz, the stylist of the Qu­ra­tor Stu­dio fash­ion com­pany also sug­gests go­ing for a few de­tails like em­broi­dery on the pants’ side.

Sanya re­calls that there was one thing she and her older brother Jak Roberto (right) en­joyed do­ing back when they were kids: “Naliligo kami sa ulan.”

Just like his younger sis­ter, Jak is making waves on tV. He’s cur­rently a main­stay in the hit prime­time rom­com se­ries Meant To Be and in the coun­try’s long­est run­ning gag show Bub­ble Gang.
