Manila X, a festival known for a different kind of fashion and music experience, recently had a kickoff party last April 7, 2017 at Ibiza Beach Club in Bonifacio Global City. The event, hosted by Preview, was a gathering filled with the trendiest and most fashionable summer looks this season. Attendees featured notable names and faces in the fashion and music industry, and were treated with a special performance by Curtismith and Kiana Valenciano. Everyone was dressed in their best summer stripes and partied the night away to awesome beats.

Because summer isn't just the perfect time to lounge away, but to party the night away with your blockmates, too, here's a quick rundown of the looks we think you should wear to your next org party as seen at the Manila X party:

One piece + striped culottes

Now that summer's here, it's the perfect time to play around with your swimsuits! Your one-piece swimsuit is not strictly for the beach, but for your next party as well! The solid color of your one piece paired with your striped culottes will give you an instant fashionable look!

Striped palazzo pants


Another look that was a standout at the Manila X party were palazzo pants. Palazzo pants are so comfy that you can dance the night away in them without having to worry about anything! Pair it with either a spaghetti top or a crop top and you’ll feel fresh and stylish all night long!

Striped romper/jumpsuit

If you're feeling a little lazy in pairing outfits together, you can opt for a striped romper or jumpsuit, which was also a hit at the Manila X party. Stripes in a romper or jumpsuit can even elongate your body, making you look slimmer and taller in a snap.

Striped off shoulder top

Another perfect summer look that you should rock to your next org party is a good ol' off shoulder top. Striped off shoulder tops are the latest craze this summer and with a good reason, too! They're so easy to pull off! Just wear it with jeans or a pair of shorts for a comfy summer look!

Striped track pants


For the Candy Girls who are more into the sporty chic fashion, dare to be bold and take it from Kiana Valenciano, who wore striped track pants paired with heels and a tank top for a girly, yet laid-back look.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
