Before the rainy season starts to dampen all the fun memories of the summer that was, PEP FAB looks back at some of the stunning fashion statements that some of our local celebrities have made in this season.

From sexy swimsuits to flirty casuals, the stars sure had fun dressing up— or down— in the comfortable yet trendy beachwear that fill the racks this summer.

PRINTED BIKINIS. The “fun prints” trend of summer 2013 transcended not only on clothes and accessories, but cool beachwear as well.

Bianca King, Bubbles Paraiso, and Nicole Andersson were among the many beach babes who donned colorful bikinis at the annual Nivea summer event, held this year in Palawan.

Even Kim Chiu, who is rarely seen in sexy swimwear, also flaunted her floral halter bikini in a random Instagram post.

Ryza Cenon also showed off her FHM-worthy abs in a mini-photo shoot for PEPtalk, wearing a printed bandeau bikini top and cut-off denims.

DENIM SHORTS. Speaking of cut-offs, short shorts became the uniform of every female celeb this season as a way of staying stylish while warding off the summer heat.

Not only did stars like Carla Humphries, Bianca Manalo, and Juliana Palermo took these pint-sized bottoms to the beach, they also rocked it at outdoor events, like concerts and music festivals.

LOOSE TANK TOP. Along with the skimpy denim shorts, stars stayed comfy in loose tank tops, which came in practically every color and silhouette.

Indio star Rhian Ramos favored a beaded peach chiffon top when she showed up on the show’s set for taping, while her co-star Sam Pinto opted for a printed cotton one.


BLACK CLOTHING. Surprisingly, apart from the usual whites and neons, black was the preferred color of clothing for summer night parties.

Model-DJs Sanya Smith and Ornussa Cadness rocked some goth-inspired looks at the beach, while Michelle Madrigal played it up at a rock concert.
