The rain has been pouring non-stop these past few days, and it only means that sadly, summer is almost over. But just because the season has come to its temporary end, doesn’t mean those sun-ready pieces you hoarded should be put to waste. Below, we raided Kultura to show you how to style your summer staples for the months to come.
The key piece: Culottes

Just like jeans, no fashion girl’s closet would be complete without a pair of culottes. While the trendy bottoms were perfect with your cropped tops all summer, you can now dress it up with a classic white button down. This is a fool-proof combo to make you look chic and sophisticated in an instant.
The key piece: Button-front skirt

The button-front skirt has been hot all season, and no amount of rain can make it fizzle. Get a midi in a neutral hue and show Manila some lovin’ while you’re at it by sporting a patriotic white tee to dress it down. Don’t forget to accessorize and stick to the same color palette to give it that "fall" season vibe.
The key piece: Maxi Dress

Lightweight maxi dresses are great as beach cover ups, but it’s also an easy-breezy weekend staple you can sport to a Sunday brunch. Go ahead and match it with your favorite weave tote, it will be your constant reminder that here in the Philippines, the beach is always a good idea.
The key piece: Little White Dress
Tropiko white dress, P899.75; Raffaella striped jacket, P2999.75; Woven pouch with stenciled pineapple print, P199.75; Tropiko coral print pouch, P149.75
If there are two dresses every woman should own in her closet, it would have to be a LBD and LWD. Take your white dress from the beach to the city by simply layering it with a fun jacket. Wear it with sneakers and accessorize with tiny zip clutches that boasts of our tropical flavors.
The key piece: Shift Dress
Tropiko blue shift dress, P1799.75; Sparkling Creations clutch with shell acccents, P1999.75; Kick Start Cofee, P349.75; Manila Philippines mug, P99.75
