It is practically summer all the time in the Philippines. With its sometimes scorching high temperatures and brighter than the light sun, there is one clothing classification that is fitting to wear all-year-round. That would be resort wear.
Resort wear, also termed as cruise wear, is a more holiday and travel type of collection. It is usually worn for warmer climates and features more casual yet classy looks. Many of our local celebrities have been seen in resort wear looks the past year, may it be at home or outside. From puff-sleeved dresses to casual coordinates, these resort wear outfits are the new staple for the weather. It is also a great way to stay casual, but still look extra cute at home!
