Stylewise Summer TipsLately, the weather has been hitting us like a Katy Perry song—hot and cold (and sometimes, wet)—and it has me thinking that summer isn’t a long way off. A week or two, perhaps, is what stands between us and the brink of beach climate. And as we all know, the eternal sunshine is equated with summer dressing: colors, prints, and heat-friendly fashion!

While I am loathe to leave behind the windy wonders of February, I must admit that I’m excited to take the plunge into hot weather wear. At heart, like all Pinays, I’m a girl of summer. I love the smell of saltwater, bronze skin and bare legs, and all the brights, tribal prints, and woven bags that come with the territory. To quote Cyndi Lauper, "I want to be the one in the sun!"

So whenever I catch the first whiff of summer—you know it, too: that warm, fresh-baked, sunny smell—I’m all about getting my wardrobe in tip-top shape for the changing times.

But a girl doesn’t need to chuck out the entire contents of her closet to make room for a bunch of replacements. Maybe that happens on TV, where no one repeats an outfit (except on Downton Abbey, forgive the shameless fan-plug) but in the real world, most of our closet-keepers are oldies but goodies. Little by little, as the climate shifts, we introduce fresh pieces into our existing wardrobe, which in turn breathe new life into our old favorites. Then, when we’re finally at the height of the season, we find that we’ve made the transition without a hitch. And isn’t that all a fashion-loving lass can hope for?

So, here are five simple steps to get your wardrobe from this transitional period to Summer 2013 as painlessly as possible. Strange, isn’t it, that we are already approaching swimsuit season already? Get to it, girls!
