“Do not underestimate the power of the cap. It functions both as a fashion accessory and protection against sudden rain while you’re stuck in open areas.”

“If you plan to sport a pair of jeans, make sure they’re stretchable so you can move with ease.”
“Wear swimwear instead of a bra under your shirt. If you’re going to a place that splashes water and beer everywhere, you won’t regret making this decision!”

“Wear prints to make your look more festive!”
“Think festival fashion but practical. Come in light clothes because it can get really really hot and humid. Find something you can move in, dance in, get wet in, get stuck in.”

“Take a lead from Coachella’s styling and incorporate fringes, tiers and patterns while maintaining one element of clothing you wouldn’t mind throwing away after a night of Sinulog madness”

“Hot, I know. The dessert heat never stopped the Navajo from sporting festive fringe but when the going gets tough, I can always take it off and just wear sunscreen. Hot, you know?”
“Always wear the most comfortable footwear, preferably closed shoes that will prevent your feet from getting wet. Trust me, there’s more walking than drinking!”
“Wear white tops! So that the paint can be seen and it would be a great souvenir to keep for memories.”

“Sinulog doesn’t have to be cut and ripped everything. You can always keep it clean and stay festive with colors and textures.”
