Wherever, whenever, anything timeless will outweigh the short-lived. Most Manillennials will have no second thoughts choosing the permanent over temporary (see: job regularization over contractualization). And when it comes to clothing, it's always a smart idea to invest in timeless, stylish pieces than in trendy fashion.
When we're introduced to a zoomed-in idea of timelessness, such as the piece's capability to withstand an office to party day, the bar is set higher for enthusiasts of practicality. Inside Manila, functionality cannot go amiss.
From elegant to ergonomic, here are some of the must-have pieces for your 9 to 5 and for wherever you let your hair down after.
This ruffled dress by designer Charina Sarte comes in two versions: The polka-dotted Paris (2998php), and the mustard Manila (P2998php). We got our eyes on the latter.
Go sleeveless with this youthful Elise dress (2898php) by designer Cheetah Rivera. If you want a chiller vibe, it also comes in a white and mint color, aka the Bonnie (2898php).
Celine Top & Skirt
The one-shoulder number comes in designer Martin Bautista's sienna Celine top and skirt (2998php). Pair it with warm-colored heels and you are looking at a dazzling ensemble that'll catch people's eyes.
Who says an all-white outfit is exclusive to binyag? Maureen Disini's Rebecca can go from business meeting to wine night without a sweat. Or go to the dark side with its contrasting design, Joanna (2998php).
Flowy is the perfect word to describe Adela (3498php), a white dress designed by Randy Ortiz seemingly designed for relaxed clothing-goers. Wear it with jeans or not, pair with strappy heels or sandals, the possibilities are endless.
Be bright and bold with this red Marcella dress (2998php) by Vania Romoff if you're feeling a little bit fancy. You can throw on your favorite blazer at work, then take it off when it's time to paint the town red.
The Nashtassia pantsuit (3498php) is comfortable and stylish to wear from 9 to 9 (yes, there's such a thing). Or if you want to show off some slit, opt for the Tanya dress (2898php).
If you want to marry class and sophistication in your clothing, look no further. All these pieces are part of Plains & Prints "Beyond 25" collection, a culmination of the homegrown brand's 25 years providing modern Filipinas with classic yet adventurous pieces.
The entire collection is now available in all Plains & Prints branches nationwide.
