Bundling up for the ‘ber’ months

Gloomy skies and rain showers have become frequent lately. It might be due to the subsequent typhoons coming in or it’s probably just because the ‘ber months are here. But one thing’s for sure, summer has finally gone and passed. This kind of weather unarguably calls for some light layers and cozy clothing.

Check out these local fashion brands if you want to bundle up for the cooler season ahead.

The relaxed fit, dropped shoulders and heavyweight cotton fabric make MN+LA’s long-sleeved tees great for lounging at home or even a day of errands. Most of the brand’s pieces come in a wide array of colors too, from neutrals such as Wheat and Olive to brights like Mustard and Tangerine. If you want a monochromatic moment, most colors come with matching shorts and sweatpants.

Casil Manila (@casil.ig)

The brand’s signature cardigan features an oversized cotton knit body, light distressing for added texture, and for those whose hands get cold very easily, perfectly exaggerated long sleeves. It comes in Cream and Ivy (Green). Pair with Casil’s voluminous trousers called The Big Pant to complete the anti-fit aesthetic.

Meraki Apparel (@meraki.women / @meraki.men)

Aside from the cool silhouette, the best part about the Denim Kimono are the pockets! There’s one in front and a few more slots in the back. If you’re the type who doesn’t like carrying a bag, they’re ideal for essentials like your smartphone, keys and hand sanitizer. The denim fabric is also light enough even for sunnier days.

Made of sturdy cotton twill, the Aritana Oversized Utility Jacket sports an understated utilitarian, military-esque structure and design. The jacket comes in earth tones like khaki, army green, black and off-white. You can also get it with the matching Utility Trousers for a complete set, but it’s just as versatile as a standalone piece that’s easy to mix and match with existing pieces in you wardrobe.
