This Is The One Shirt You’ll Be Seeing All Over Instagram Soon

You heard it here first.

Sorry we don’t make the rules. With NYLON finally landing in Manila, we can’t help but appreciate its simple and iconic logo printed on a tee with the country’s capital underneath. It’s been a while since an international publication has entered the islands, so what better way to join the club than wear it on your sleeve? We even sought the help of our cover stars in case you’re curious how else you can reinvent ways to wear the shirt.

  1. GET YOUR FROCK ON WITH A LITTLE TULLE DRESS

As the sampaguita in this particular tale, Blythe wears ruffles to emulate the national flower’s petals. A more casual look? Layer your NYLON shirt underneath some sheer and tulle. (Metallic gloves and flower stems optional if you dare.)
