Whether you're one of the lucky ones headed to the beach during the long break or one of those who prefer to stay in the city, we've got the essentials you need to survive the heat in style.

1. Camisole

In this humid weather, you will need an easy breezy top that you can wear both for work (underneath a blazer, of course!) and play.


TRY: H&M Satin Camisol Top in Light Pink, P699, at SM Megamall

2. Off-the-shoulder top

We thought this style was just a trend, but it looks like it is here to stay. A shoulder-baring top looks just as awesome when worn at the beach as much as when it's worn in the city.

3. Denim jacket

It can get cold in the beach at night, and a lightweight denim jacket is best suited for the job.

When you're a bit shy, you can be saved by a pretty, kimono jacket. Find more cover up styles to choose from here.

It's like LBD version of bikinis. Get one in a style that flatters your body the most, or you can have one customized to perfectly fit your curves.

Going to a fancy dinner with a view of the beach and the moon? Don a maxi dress for a classy touch.

The color black absorbs heat, so make a switch and go for LWDs for a fresher feel.
