Manila weather is as unpredictable as a woman on PMS. One day it’s as bright and cheerful as the #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines tourism AVP, and the next it’s as if we need Batman to swoop in our very own dreary Gotham.
Sure, the rain may bring us the rare chance to stay in and snuggle with our boyfriends or catch up with Christian Grey. (Hey, whatever floats your boat.) But this happens rarely, especially during the workweek. Regardless of the forecast, I believe that it’s always important to look your best.
Just in case we get another surprise storm visit, make sure you have your rain essentials with you: closed shoes, rainboots, umbrella, and Trench’d, our house brand of water-resistant raincoats for today’s working woman. The raincoats have a tailored trench coat fit that are lined with fun colors and prints — all of which are perfect to brighten your spirits under cloudy skies. Each Trench’d raincoat comes with double pockets (for keys, pens and knick knacks), a removable belt (for a quick getaway) and a protective hood (for those unexpected rain showers).
Here are some style suggestions that you can wear with your favorite Trench’d.
1. Atten-hut! Brighten up your skinny jeans (camo print optional) with a statement necklace and a splash of hot pink, courtesy of the Hello, Dolly! Trench’d (PHP 1,950).
2. Don’t let it rain on your parade! Get comfy and music festival-ready in an oversized knit sweater, flowy skirt and boots with the Quarter To Nine Trench’d (PHP 1,950) in classic black.
3. Tweed leggings never looked this office ready. Wear it with a peplum top, embellished flats and a hint of color with the Sail Away Trench’d (PHP 1,950) on your next coffee run.
Celebrate the rain!
