[Fashion] Wearable summer luxe
'Luxe' doesn't have to mean stiff, stuffy, and uncomfortable.

CHOOSE VERSATILE WARDROBE ESSENTIALS. The electric-pleated skirt has returned from the 70s with a twist — its sheer outer fabric is perfect for today's much hotter weather.

MANILA, Phiippines — Understated luxe never goes out of style.

It never goes out of season, too. Whether it’s summer or the holidays, looking glamorous in easy and comfortable everyday wear always has to do with the right fashion choices.

RAPPLER gives fashion tips on what pieces and outfits can go from day to night without losing their impact — perfect for the woman who wants to (subtly) stand out.

DO THE COLOR-BLOCK. It doesn't matter if people say it's no longer trendy. 'Fashionable' does not always equate to 'trendy.' Color-blocking is always nice to look at, hands-down.

GO FOR LACE. It can be dark yet seductive and flirty, giving off that I'm-a-beautiful-tough-chick vibe.

THE STRUCTURED SHIFT can go anywhere, anytime. Pair it with ballet flats and a cardigan for a younger feel, or with heeled pumps for a more 'mature' look.

THE NEW NUDE. Sometimes, it's the 'quiet' one that gets the most attention. The simple nude speaks volumes about a woman's confidence and character.

Perfect style icons for understated glam are multi-awarded androgynous actress Tilda Swinton, design icon Mary Kate Olsen, and seductive La Femme Nikita star Maggie Q. –
