Plus: 7 summer style tips from Manila's trendsetters!

Last weekend, HerStyleAsia was one of the first to see the Summer 2018 collection at The Art of Guess event in Whitespace Manila, Philippines. Here are some of our favourite pieces from the Guess women’s new arrivals.

Guess Women’s New Arrivals: Guess Summer 2018 Collection

Tops

Clockwise from upper-left: Katagami Print Bomber, Cold Shoulder Hermosa Top, Roy Embossed Logo Crew, Finch Tie Dye Crew

For days when you’re feeling extra, try out the Cold Shoulder Hermosa Top to add playfulness to your summer outfit. But even though it’s boiling hot outside, you need some insulation to keep you warm when you head indoors to the near-freezing temperatures of the mall/office/school auditorium AC. 

These crew sweaters and bomber jacket are actually from the men’s collection, but they’ll look great with a pair of short shorts or even a summer dress. Gift one to your boyfriend and “borrow” when you need to — or better yet, just buy one for yourself.

Jeans

We’re digging the loose fit of these It Girl jeans, which would look awesome paired with a loose white tank. And those retro details in the Bright Shadow 1981 skinny jeans are to die for. 

Rompers and dresses

Summers aren’t complete without a full day or two lounging around by a pool or on a beach — and looking damn good in the process. This maxi romper will have heads turning wherever you go, as will this sheer black dress (perfect for evening beach parties). And while the weather’s still warm, you may as well show off those collarbones with this sexy-cute off-shoulder party dress.

Summer Chic at the Art of Guess

Apart from getting a look at the Guess women’s new arrivals, we were also able to catch some of Manila’s most fashionable show us how to do summer chic right. Here are some pointers we’ve picked up.

1. Don’t be afraid to bare your midriff

The weather’s warm, your abs are primed for the beach. If you’re gonna bare your midriff, now’s the time.

2. And now’s the time to break out the romper/jumpsuit

Yeah, they’re a pain to pee in, but nothing spells “summer” like a light and breezy romper or jumpsuit.

3. White’s just right

Though we saw plenty of guests in all-black outfits as well (I mean, it was a fashion event after all), white is the way to go this summer.

4. But you can’t go wrong with the denim-and-white combo

If you’re going for the effortlessly cool girl look, this is the colour combo to go with.

5. Opt for oversized

Michelle Dy; Chelsey Singson

We’re all about loose, breezy pieces that are easy to slip in and out of. Mix and match with more figure-hugging pieces, or simply do a French tuck that’d do Tan France proud.

6. Your denim jacket is your best friend

The denim jacket is seriously indispensable this season — it’s just light enough to wear in and outdoors, plus it can double as a waist-cincher.

7. Have fun with florals

We know. Florals? For summer? Groundbreaking. But hey, it works!
