Gloomy skies and rain showers have become common recently. It could be because of the typhoons that followed, or it might be because the next few months are around. But one thing is certain, summer is finally over. This type of weather undeniably calls for light layers and cozy clothing.
Check out these local fashion brands if you want to gear up for the cooler season to come.
MN + LA (@mnlaofficial)
The casual fit, the dropped shoulders and the heavy cotton fabric make the long-sleeved T-shirts by MN + LA ideal for lounging at home or even for errands. Most of the brand’s pieces are also available in a wide range of colors, from neutral colors like wheat and olive to bright colors like mustard and tangerine. If you want a monochrome moment, most colors come with matching shorts and sweatpants.
Casil Manila (@ casil.ig)
The brand’s signature cardigan features an oversized cotton knit bodysuit, slight distressing for added texture, and perfectly exaggerated long sleeves for those whose hands get cold very easily. It is available in cream and ivy (green). Pair it with Casil’s voluminous pants called The Big Pant to complete the anti-fit aesthetic.
Meraki clothing (@ meraki.women / @ meraki.men)
The best thing about the denim kimono, in addition to the cool silhouette, are the pockets! There is one in the front and a few more slots in the back. If you don’t want to carry a bag, they are great for storing essentials like your smartphone, keys, and hand sanitizer. The denim fabric is light enough even for sunnier days.

The Aritana Oversized Utility Jacket, made of sturdy cotton twill, has a subtle, utilitarian, military-like structure and design. The jacket comes in earth tones like khaki, army green, black and off-white. You can also get it with the matching utility pants for a complete set, but it’s just as versatile as a standalone piece that can easily be combined with existing pieces in your wardrobe.
