Wardrobe Must-Haves for the ‘Ber’ Months
At long last, summer is finally over! I think we all have a love-hate relationship with the season. We love the sun but HATE the extreme heat.
Though we only experience two seasons in the Philippines, we’re still lucky enough to get a little bit of cold during what we call the ‘ber’ months, which usually starts in September.
Now’s the time to bring out those sweaters and boots you’ve been stocking in your cabinets all summer long — because outfits should change with the weather! Here are some wardrobe must-haves to stay stylish during the ‘ber’ months.
Yes, even in a tropical country like ours, we can actually rock a coat! The ‘ber’ months are all about layers. So spice up your wardrobe with a thin coat or jacket!
Pro tip: go easy on the fur. It will still be a little hot outside during the ‘ber’ months, after all.
Tank tops and spaghetti straps are out. Longsleeves and sweaters are in! Weather can be very unpredictable in the Philippines. Just remember that time you thought it was hot outside only to get soaked in the rain later in the day.
But you can never go wrong with long sleeves clothing — perfect for rain, cozy enough for cold, and bearable even during hot days.
Pro tip: Get creative with how you sport your long sleeves! You can wear them with jeans or a playful skirt.
Want to wear a button-up shirt? Here are some clever ways to wear it:
The ‘ber’ months hold an arsenal of rainy days, so make sure you’re always prepared! Umbrellas come in handy during this season, but the last thing we want is to lug an umbrella around.
Pro tip: Get a collapsible or foldable umbrella that can fit in your purse to minimize the hassle.
Cue: Taylor Swift’s folklore album! Now you can get the ultimate folklore feals with a knitted cardigan during sweater weather.
A cardigan or cover-up is perfect if you still want to wear your tank tops and crop tops during the ‘ber’ months. That way, you’re prepared whether it’s hot or cold outside!
Pro tip: tie your cardigan or cover-up around your waist when you don’t need it. This will make for a sexy, laid-back, and girly look!
The ‘ber’ months give us the perfect opportunity to dress with class and sophistication. So if I were you, I’d take advantage of it!
