It’s already summer over here meaning it’s the season to look for cute, warm-weather outfits. The weather in the months of April and May (summer months in Philippines) can be is usually mad hot. I cannot tell you which is worse in comparison to the Nigerian sun just know that a little 10 minute walk down the road will have you dripping of so much sweat that you were unaware your body could produce, or well that’s what happens to me ๐Ÿ™ . So wearing light clothes is a major essential for summer fashion.

Summer fashion can sometimes be a bit too revealing, putting all those parts we’d rather not display out in the open.

There’s a fine line between staying cool and staying, well, appropriate, and it isnโ€™t always easy when itโ€™s hot AF outside so here’s how i managed to stay appropriate without sacrificing style – A hole sweater top and a maxi skirt with double thigh high slits.

You know what they say – “If the legs are gonna be out, the top needs to be covered”

I know you must be wondering how this so-called sweater top equals summer fashion. The deal is, it’s not a real sweater, i mean i wouldn’t wear this when I’m feeling cold cause it’s super light. It simply just has the look of one or maybe i called it sweater due to lack of any other appropriate term, plus with all these many holes, you can be sure I’m getting all theย  air i need.

The double thigh high slits on this maxi skirt adds a subtle twist which updates the maxi, giving it the sultry look itโ€™s always coveted. And sneakers because if you haven’t quite figured it out already – I’m a sneaker girl!

Here’s how to wear this maxi skirt for a night look

  • Top – A lace bralette or a print bodysuit.
  • Accessories – Dangling earrings, a bracelet and some rings.
  • Shoes – Strappy heels.

With these few points of mine, i hope I’ve been able to convince you and not to confuse you (who remembers this line from primary school debate sessions? haha ) that high slit maxis are the way to go

    Damn girllll! You’re serving major summer looks! I can see that summer has really hit there from the pictures. I really love the material of the ‘sweater’. Will definitely hunt it down to make a jacket out of it.

    I love how fashion evolved. from wearing sneakers on just trousers and shorts to wearing it on skirts, Combining different colors, wearing different textures and fabrics together.
