How To Rock Summer Looks From The City To The Beach


The latest from 0917 has your summer looks covered



The sun may usually be out in Manila, but a true Pinoy knows that the heat from the last few days has summer written all over it. And we all know what that means: a beach trip is quickly on its way—and with it the little issue of summer look essentials.


But there’s no need to worry; the 0917 Summer collection has you covered. The vibrant colors scream summer and fun (that you can take to the beach or work in the city).

Style tip #1: Fret knot

One simple trick to make your city staples more beach-appropriate is to knot it up. Choose between a side knot or a center knot and no one will wonder why you’ve opted to wear a shirt to the beach.

And while you’re putting your girl scout skills to the test with those ties, don’t be afraid to gather a little more fabric and show a little more skin.


Style tip #2: Sun’s out, skin’s out

Speaking of skin, summer is the perfect time to rock the unbuttoned button-down look that anyone can pull off. It’s perfect for those who don’t really have the energy or time to think about what they’re throwing on once their feet hit the sand.

Another great thing about a button-down at the beach? You can choose to close it when you’ve had one too many cocktails (or slices of pizza).


Style tip #3: Size it up  

Want comfort above all else? Then throw on a statement shirt that’s at least two sizes too big. Oversized is a beautiful trend that’s comfortable and chic.

If you do want a little tighter silhouette, however, we suggest using a safety pin to scrunch the back and keep things in place.

Style tip #4: Cut up some loose ends

Everyone’s always talking about tying up loose ends, but summer is the time to embrace—even make—them. Get a pair of scissors and cut off the sleeves, cut up a bit of fringe or even create an asymmetrical masterpiece that’s as beach ready as you are.

Afraid you won’t be able to use it in the city? Just pair your work of art up with a pair of jeans and you’re suddenly ready to walk the concrete sidewalks again.


Style tip #5: Accessorize appropriately

Top of your summer looks with the right accessories—and when you hit the beach, this means a tote bag that you can trust and wear whichever way you want.
