The brightest and youngest Ilonggo personalities answered summer’s call as they took over the runway with their trendy summer looks for Tropical Movement on April 29 at SM City Iloilo Southpoint.

A summer themed fashion show, Tropical Movement featured 32 young Ilonggo fashion enthusiasts and brought 11 big brands together to give the Ilonggo fashionistas the latest styles this season.

Ilonggo fashion icon and Tropical Movement stylist Nana Loring shared that trends this summer are mostly played with floral prints and pastel colors. She added that Havana look as well as Cuban and Mexican-inspired fashion mostly associated with off shoulder tops and fringes for women and bright colored prints for men are also in this summer.

Though intended for rainy days, Loring said that men can still wear bomber jackets and can complement one’s summer OOTD to give comfort despite the unpredictable weather.

For women, long see through cardigans are the best if you want to have comfortable transition upon experiencing erratic weather conditions.

However, she advised that styling doesn’t need to follow the trend. The best thing to do is to experiment and choose the style that perfectly fits your body type.


For social media influencer and fashion lover Josh David Sales who loves edgy and quirky kind of style, injecting some unique elements always makes his outfits noticeable.

“Choose the right color and pieces to go with your look. A plain shirt, layered with kimono or jacket to pair with good denim or shorts, mandals or sneakers and a rocking eyeglass or hat can make the world your runway,” he said.

Summer may come in different colors. But for style blogger Aaron Paul Malata, monochromatic tones can make a summer OOTD cool. He said that a plain outfit can still standout by having a contrasting element by pairing it with cute pins or a nice sunglasses.


For Ilongga fashionista JM Tiongco, you can never go wrong with pastel colors this summer. In terms of style, she said that mix and match is a good idea, but comfort should always come first.

Avant-garde and whimsical – this is how style blogger Nana Jover describe her personal style. This summer, she advises to stick on the classic and basic pieces like tees and shorts, off shoulder tops and light fabric summer dresses.
