Yes, summer's the time to bring out your light-weight dresses, sleeveless tops, and shorts. But, is the beach your only destination this season? Everyone loves traveling during summer, and some of your favorite destinations may not necessarily have the hot, humid weather we have here. Must your style--and shopping budget--suffer?
Asymmetrical tops, shorts, frilly skirts, playful rompers, and flowy maxi dresses in soft, breezy fabrics and fresh, vivid prints and colors like teal, purple, and green are among the summer trends you can look forward to this season. That's what we saw on the runway of Penshoppe's fashion show at the Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011. But, the collection also includes a memorable smattering of hugging tailored blazers, slim jackets, structured skirts, and well-constructed dresses in darker shades that you can include in your travel wardrobe. The best part? They look high fashion but come at such affordable prices.
The inspiration for this collection is the sophisticated street fashion of Paris, France, hence the darker hues and tailored silhouettes. Whatever your destination--a party beach like Boracay or a chic foreign city like Singapore--you'll find pieces that will take you from day to night and suit your taste and need. There are versatile pieces like jackets, vests, polos, shorts, and woven shirts for your guy, too.
Notable on the runway were their cute printed wedges that Penshoppe promises are not runway exclusives--you'll actually see and get them in stores this season, so watch for it!
