When the days start to get longer and the breeze begins to feel warmer, it can only mean one thing: Summer is here. It's that time of the year again to trade in our jackets and sweaters for flowy dresses and swimsuits. We know that in this weather, especially here in the Philippines, you just want to look and feel as fresh possible—but who says you have to sacrifice style to do that?
Today, we're rounding up 12 outifts that are perfect and practical for summertime dressing, especially if you're planning a trip to the beach.

1. Pastel Tent Dress
No article of clothing is as easy-breezy as a tent dress in a fetching pastel hue. The flowy frock will for sure keep you feeling refreshed throughout the day, plus it can easily be paired with your favorite sandals, or even some sneakers. You can practically take a nap on a hammock in this!
2. Floral Halter Mini Dress + Sunnies
Another frock you'd love to put on this sunny season is a floral halter mini dress. A dainty print balances out its sultry backless cut, making it the optimal option for hubadera girls everywhere. Don't forget to bring along a pair of sunnies in case it gets too bright out!
3. Bikini Top + Netted Cardigan + Printed Pants + Sunnies + Necklaces

Sling a lightweight sweater around your arms in case it suddenly gets a bit chilly at night.
