How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe for the Rainy Season
Rainy days are upon us, and we're all familiar with having to worry about coming to work looking drab because of the drizzle. That said, we've come up with a capsule wardrobe you can either buy or draw inspiration from if you don't know where to start! All you need are 20 fashion items. They are totally easy to mix and match, but the best part is that these lightweight pieces will allow you to layer even in a tropical country like ours! Read on.
Here, we chose two basic tops: a button-down shirt and a thin turtleneck top. We added tops that have a classic silhouette but with subtle accents to add edge to the outfits.
H&M Short ruffled top, P1190, SM Megamall; Pull & Bear Basic shirt with pocket, P895, SM Megamall; Mango Sequin embroidery top, P1495, TriNoma; Pull & Bear Ruffled top with contrasting piping, P995, SM Aura; Mango Stand collar t-shirt, P1295, Greenbelt 5
Outerwear is crucial to any rainy day outfit. That said, we opted to include a denim jacket for casual days, checkered and pastel pink blazers fit for the office, and a lightweight trenchcoat that's versatile enough to be worn anywhere.

For bottoms, we went with three pieces, two pairs of denim jeans and a trendy paperbag waist one to keep your capsule updated. We also added a sensible midi skirt for days you want something extra feminine.
Stradivarius Flared crop trousers, P1495, Glorietta 2; Mango High-waist trousers, P2295, SM Mall of Asia; Bershka High-waist skinny jeans, P1195, SM Megamall; Stradivarius Buttoned midi skirt, P1590, SM Aura
The dresses here are especially chosen for their versatility. These can be worn alone or layered with other dresses, tops, and even jeans!

For the shoes, we chose a pair of classic white sneakers, sturdy boots, stylish loafers, and slides. These pieces are office-appropriate, and at the same time, they can survive slight drizzles.
H&M Sneakers, P1190, SM Makati; Charles & Keith Zipper ankle boots, P3199, Power Plant Mall; H&M Loafers, P1990, SM Megamall; Charles & Keith Basic low mules, P2199, Power Plant Mall
