Learn how to incorporate the barong into your daily wardrobe
Gone are the days when wearing Filipiniana was only appropriate for cultural occasions. With young designers giving the national attire a contemporary twist, many millennial and Gen-Z fashion influencers have embraced styling these pieces for everyday wear on the streets.
Now, Kultura makes contemporary barongs even more accessible to everyone who wants to explore this style. The brand has released a new line that can be worn at the office with a playful touch or anytime you want to spruce up your fashion game.
From silk barongs and embroidered pieces to linen ones, check out some of our picks from the brand and get inspired by these street style looks.
For a more modern take on the piece, opt for a colored barong like this brown one with geometric embroidery. Tuck it into a pair of white flared pants for a stylish look.
If you prefer a more retro look, go for the polo shirt jack with a band on the hem. This style looks best when worn untucked with loose-fitting pleated trousers.
If you want a twist on the short-sleeved silk barong, leave it open and wear a white tank underneath. Pair it with brown pants and don’t forget to accessorize for a more modern look.
For a more affordable option, choose this guayabera barong in black. You can also pair it with blue trousers to add a pop of color.
