PIT Señor! Sinulog is here. It’s time to hit the streets and shout praises for the Child Jesus. You’ll be out the entire day for some fun under the sun and we’re pretty sure you’re currently digging through your old pile of clothes to look for the best ensemble to wear today.

Remember ladies, it’s all about comfort when it comes to your Sinulog 2019 OOTD. But who says comfort cannot come with style? We say otherwise, whether you’re planning to DIY your shirt at the last minute or visit an Islands Souvenirs boutique near you. And if you’re looking for ways on how to style your Sinulog shirt, look no further as we’re sharing with you three looks for inspiration to get you started and make the cut:

1. Pair your tie-dye shirt with a black flounce mini skirt.

Sinulog is a festive celebration and it’s only fitting to wear a flamboyant color while you’re out on the streets. A lot of stores has endless supply of tie-dye Sinulog shirts or you can just look into making one yourself. One thing is guaranteed though, you are sure to stand out from the crowd. You can pair your shirt with a neutral bottom to balance out the colors, like a black flounce mini skirt. You can even accentuate your hips by tucking in the shirt or simply tie the hem into a knot depending on your preference. Finish off the look with a minimalist yet stylish headdress and a pair of nude sandals or white sneakers.

2. Wear your fringed shirt with a striped palazzo pants with side slit.

Every Sinulog season, the Islands Souvenirs Cut & Style campaign is something Cebuanos look forward to with their fun line up of designs and embellishments. While it’s assuring to have your shirt styled by the experts, there’s nothing wrong with trying it out on your own too for as long as you have a guide. You can have the sleeves of your shirt cut and the hem fringed to give it a personalized styling that’s perfect for the festivities. You can then pair your fringed shirt with a striped palazzo pants with side slits to give off that laidback vibe. To fully get into the spirit of merriment, complete the whole look with a bold and eye-catching headdress designed with feathers, beads and glitters in Sinulog colors.

3. Match your Sinulog shirt with denim overall shorts.

Exude youthfulness during the most vibrant festival in the city by matching your Sinulog shirt with denim overall shorts. You can unhook one end to still showcase your shirt in a subtle way, but go all out with your headdress. Wear one that is striking with big feathers and bold colors to blend well with all the street revelries. There’s no better way to step out of your home clad in chic and comfy clothes that are enough to showcase your best Sinulog OOTD this year.
