Super Chic Department Store Finds For Summer!

Thanks to more aggressive merchandisers, clothes in your favorite department stores look more and more high fashion--while keeping prices low! Check out the latest from SM.

When you want more trendy clothes you can mix and match for summer, must you really spend too much on each piece? We don't think so! Department stores are there to present you with the latest summer trends you can incorporate into your wardrobe (yes, department store finds are a lot more fashionable now than they used to be) without having to blow a fortune on clothes that could be impractical next season! (Think: sheer tops and lightweight maxi dresses for rainy days? No way!)

Instead of visiting too many stores, you also save a lot of time when you can just enter one huge space that presents you with everything a budget fashionista could ever need: from chic clothes to stylish shoes and fab accessories. One such place you can visit is SM Department Store (in the SM Mall nearest you), which recently updated their racks with their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, presented on the glamorous runway of Philippine Fashion Week.

Have fun under the sun in flowy maxi dresses in bright floral prints, lightweight tank tops, and knit pieces from SM’s Resort Report collection. Show your free spirited side, too, when you wear classy bohemian-inspired pieces like layered maxi dresses and everything else that brings to mind chilling out. But, you know summer's not just about hitting the beach or some tropical resort! For all your clubbing plans this season, be a Downtown Diva in classic pantsuits and cropped jackets with appliques in black or go glitz and glam in sequined clothes.

Those with summer date plans should stock up on fun, flirty outfits with ruffle details, pleats, and ruching that would highlight your attractive feminine side. You can also go a little bold in this season’s hot shade of red, as seen on petal skirts and draped dresses that make you look both elegant and sophisticated.

The finishing touch you can't do without? Sky-high heels in the latest footwear designs from Parisian. For whatever summer activity you've got in mind, find your perfect pair from the brand’s wide variety of collections: Boot Club, Goddess Worship, and New Romantic. Sling on that handbag in eye-catching details and stylish designs, also from Parisian, to complete your look. You’ll like their Bucket Beautiful collection that's meant for casual summer trips, their Skin Thing collection of faux exotic skin bags, and vintage-inspired bags from the Lady Luxe collection.

We've got the visuals to help you plan your next shopping trip in your head. Browse our gallery for SM Ladies’ wide collection of clothes, shoes, and bags for Summer 2011.
