Curating your summer wardrobe? You’ve probably taken all the bikinis, cut-offs, and camisoles into consideration, but you can’t live on those alone! For Spring/Summer 2016, Dorothy Perkins addresses every girl’s need for versatile and stylish looks that can easily be dressed up or down, from sunrise to sundown:
1. The Shirt Dress
When the heat gets unbearable, champion easy, uncomplicated style by slipping on a shirt dress. A style that cinches at the waist is your best bet.
Left to right: Maxi dress, P3,195; sunglasses, P595; bag, P1,995; dress, P2,595
2. The Pinny Dress
We’d wear the playful pinny dress as a cute cover-up while lounging poolside or grabbing some drinks, and over a collared blouse and with a neat ponytail once we’re back at the office.
Dress, P2,195; top, P1,795
3. The Off-Shoulder Top
There’s no denying the shoulder as this season’s erogenous zone. Show off your sun-kissed skin in a charming off-shoulder or cold-shoulder top.
Top, P1,995; dress, P2,195
4. The Romantic Top
Play up your feminine side with the romantic blouse. Keep an eye out for sweet details like ruffles or floral prints!

5. The Summer Knit
You won’t regret packing a couple of crochet or loose weave knits in your weekend carryall! They’re just the thing to wear when temperatures rise.
Tops, prices available upon request
6. The Sleeveless Jacket
Throw a sleeveless jacket over a white tee and boyfriend jeans for a casual day at work, or wear on its own with loose trousers for a stroll by the shore.
Jacket, P2,195; trousers, P1,995
7. The Summer Wrap
It can get breezy by the beach (and downright freezing in the office), so take cover in a roomy wrap. Go for a light color or a fun print for that free-spirited bohemian aesthetic.
Wrap, tank, and jeans, prices available upon request
8. The Ankle Grazer
The season’s trousers are meant to be worn cropped to show off your statement sandal and freshly painted toenails.
Top, P1,395; trousers, P1,595; shoes, P2,595
9. The Column Skirt
A slinky silhouette that enhances your curves, the column skirt looks just as good with a crisp shirt for work as it does with a cropped cami for the beach.
Shirt, P1,595; skirt, P1,395; belt, P395; shoes, P2,395
10. The Shoe Boot
A footwear style that combines the look of a sandal and a boot, the shoe boot transitions from office to party with minimal effort.
Shoes, P2,995; dress, sunglasses, bag, prices available upon request
