Is it just me or does this top remind you of our local barong? For readers who are not from the Philippines, barong is a traditional garment usually worn by men to weddings and other formal occasions. It is made of sheer and lightweight fabric like piña and has detailed embroidery all over it.
Maybe this top reminds me of the barong because of the embroidery on it. That, and the stiffness of it’s fabric. It’s like a modern alternative to our piña and the embroidery is an updated and feminine version of the usual patterns we see on traditional barong. Can you see the resemblance now?
I really love intricate blouses like this. They’re just so striking! If ever there’s a downside to wearing heavily embroidered pieces like this one, the only thing I can think of is that some of them can look a little old. To avoid that, pair them with pieces that give off a young and fresh vibe like this pair of shorts I got from Chloe.
