Eight fashion essentials to get the look of artista this summer

Stripes (on Maine Mendoza) and denim (on Kathryn Bernardo) are just two of the eight fashion essentials this summer.

Summer is on!

Time to give your wardrobe an overhaul.

If you have budget considerations, worry not, you can always mix and match.

A trendy top, for example, can be paired with shorts, which can go well with any T shirt, which will look good with denim skirt, which is perfect for white sneakers. Get the picture?

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) compiled 25 celebrity OOTDs on Instagram, and listed down seven of their favorite fashion pieces, and and took note of the ways to wear them.

By the way, the choices will look good on teens and even moms!

1. Off-the-shoulder tops

For almost three years now, we have been seeing the stars jump on the bare-the-shoulders bandwagon.

Why they like it? It's fashionably comfy on a hot day.

Julia Barretto wore hers with a bikini top and denim skirt.

Sofia Andres paired it with jeans, and achieved that casually-cool look.

2. Denim

Since last year, Hollywood celebrities have been proving that twice as much denim is twice as good.

See how Janine Gutierrez rocked her denim ensembles, marrying two shades.

A denim jacket can instantly add that oomph to a dress or any ensemble.

3. White sneakers

Who doesn't have white sneakers these days?

Thanks to Adidas launching its Stan Smiths, now most celebs are into white kicks, which they pair with anything—from shirt to blouse to jumpsuit to dress!

4. Choker top

It's part-turtleneck, part-halter, and is said to be this year's lace-up top.

Stars love it because it's super presko, literally!

Lovi Poe showed the chic way of showing some skin...

If you don't like the choker part, Maxene Magalona's black tank top will do.

5. Stripes

Stars are presently into the usual bkack and white stripes. In Hollywood, super-sized stripes are in!

Janella Salvador looked casual yet sexy.

Winwyn Marquez paired it with white shorts and sneakers.
