A windbreaker, for those of you who might be confused, is a thin fabric jacket designed to protect you from light spells of rain or wind—hence the name. For the often unpredictable Manila weather, this lightweight, travel-friendly style is always a handy piece to have either in your closet or folded up in your bag. Plus, it’s an easy way to add more personality to a plain outfit because you can shop the piece in lots of bright colors and funky designs. We round up a few you may want to check out.
