OUTFIT | Too Cool For School

Yuki Tansengco Fall/Winter Style

in my holiday uniform

In a country wherein we have only 2 seasons, I get pretty jealous when the fall/winter collections come in after July. My favorite brands stock up all the layering pieces you can think of: scarves, coats, hats and wool socks but unfortunately, no cool weather here to wear it – unless it’s the holidays!

Layering in Manila

I have learned a little cheat sheet when it comes to layering in Manila. Let me know if you agree with me!

Mango plaid dress | Zara boots | Forever 21 thigh highs

I’ve always wanted to own thigh-high booties but that would obviously be too warm for our climate. Instead, I re-created that look and wore thigh-high cotton socks instead. Avoid material such as wool cos that’ll be too warm!

Veloci Voyager Watch

The synthetic material of the dress isn’t as warm as it looks. Plus, the length gives a lot of ventilation. Haha! To keep it simple, I paired this look with a Veloci classic Voyager watch. Check out Veloci on Facebook!

Mango red purse

Since the majority of the outfit is in blue/black, I paired a bright red purse from Mango for a pop of color. What do you think?

I wore this outfit during the ACER x Yugatech Quiz Night and dressing up in something comfy was a good idea. It was such a fun event – being competitive and seeing familiar faces.

Ralph Lauren Blazer in Navy

Layering in Manila can be super tricky so make sure you wear pieces that’ll look good alone – or together, like this plaid dress. When it got too warm, I simply removed the blazer. Blazers instantly dress up your look so don’t neglect them just because it looks “too warm” – you can always just let it rest above your shoulders.

Thank you Vina for taking these shots! We took them just right when the sun was about to set so it’s kind of dusky. You can check out her style blog here!

I love the beaded detail on this blazer. From afar, it really looks like a school’s coat of arms. You can get Ralph Lauren pieces here in Rustan’s! :)
