Not a fan of wearing color? Or have you been wanting to wear your chic swimwear but somewhere off the beach? This season, it’s time to break free from sartorial dilemmas–your wardrobe will thank you for it.
The fashion mavens behind Mega magazine breaks down which style rules are meant to be broken and which ones should be kept. Last Saturday at the #SMStyleSeriesxMega, Mega magazine’s Editor-In-Chief Peewee Reyes-Isidro and Mega Man’s Associate Editor Angelo Ramirez de Cartegerena shared their style solutions for every fashion myth that have been stopping us to have the chicest summer style yet.
Take cues from these fashion pointers below:
Is it okay to wear black in the summer?
Contrary to popular belief, this season isn’t only about donning the brightest, and most colorful frocks. Let’s face it–it’s almost impossible not to reach for your go-to black and white pieces when half of your wardrobe is made up of the monochrome shade. Mix different fabrics, shades and silhouettes to breathe new life to the classic hue.
What are the colors that I can wear to punch up an everyday look?
Opt for primary colors (red, yellow and blue) and other bright, eye-catching hues like pink. P.S. Make sure to do a skin test first to check if the color looks flattering on you.
Can I wear my swimsuit out of the beach?
With all the chic swimsuit styles available now, your bathing suit shouldn’t only stick close to the clear waters. To take it to the city, treat your bikini as a top or your one-piece as a bodysuit and cover up with casual pieces like a pair of jeans to make it more street-worthy.
What are the rules on mixing prints?
Wearing print-on-print can get tricky, so start with experimenting with just 2 pieces that are not too loud.
How do I elevate my denim-on-denim look?
To give your denim-on-denim look a much-needed upgrade, look for interesting details like fringe and distressed fabric. Match denims with the same wash, but to avoid looking too flat, play around with accessories.
