I decided against purchasing a tie-front bandeau and a cropped corset that I spotted at Forever21 the other day because I didn't know where else they could be worn aside from the beach!

The fashion world's obsession for dessous-dessus, or innerwear as outerwear, resurfaces, which is quite perfect for the nearly intolerable heat in Manila! Make bandeaus and cropped corsets more wearable by pairing them with sheer tops, ladylike structured cover-ups, and high waist bottoms. The look can be kept dainty and polished with natural makeup and a sleek 'do.
