Living in a tropical country makes our fashion decisions ten times more difficult. It’s always a balance of keeping in style and literally staying cool.
An obvious solution would be to wear shorts. However, not all women are comfortable with showing off their legs or maybe the occasion wouldn’t allow it. Here are six breezy bottoms for the summer that aren’t shorts.
#1 Uniqlo Light Sweat Wide Ankle Pants
This is for the girl who prioritizes comfort above the rest. These soft sweat pants are not only light and soft to the touch but it can also look chic with its trendy wide leg cut. Available at Glorietta 5.
#2 Mango Striped Cotton Trousers
These trousers are multi-functional; you can wear them with a blouse for work or with a cami for the beach. Either way, its cotton blend and relaxed fit will protect you from the heat without sacrificing comfort. Available at Power Plant Mall.
#3 Sesura Totem Hipness Denim Culottes
Korean fashion has been all the rage lately. These clean cut denim culottes definitely fit the trend. The great thing about culottes is that, even if they are denim, the wide leg cut and its ankle length ensures ventilation even on a hot summer day. Available online.
#4 Miss Selfridge Black Floral Wrap Midi Skirt
A light-weight floral midi skirt is perfect for that Sunday brunch outdoors that you’ll be going to. Midi skirts are much easier to walk in than with a maxi skirt, especially if you don’t have the height to spare. Available online.
#5 Zara Tropical Print Trousers with Belt
Fashion items from the 70’s to 90’s have recently been making a comeback and palazzo pants are one of them. Just like its print, these trousers are fit for the tropical heat of this country with its delicate fabric. Available at SM Megamall.
