You have planned your OOTD to the tee and it features your favorite white skinny jeans, when lo and behold, you realize your period has arrived. Don’t let “Red Day” hamper your style! You can still stay as on-trend as fashion icons like Maymay Entrata. Here’s how:

1. Embrace White and Light Fashion

You can still wear light-colored clothing when having your monthly period. If you are a natural worrier and want to stay safe yet stylish, consider wearing a long jacket — a pop of color that’s on-trend will also spice up your look. 

Tip: Feel like embracing a classic style? Throw on a nude jacket to look effortlessly chic. Modess with wings are a girl’s best friend when using light colors during this time. For all-round protection and coverage, wear Modess All Night as it’s wider and longer for worry-free protection.

2. Go Oversized: Fashion-forward and Comfortable

Feeling bloated due to your menses? Or have menstrual cramps? On these days, the last thing you want to do is squeeze into tight-fitting, uncomfortable clothing such as your skinny jeans. Luckily, oversized fashion is in vogue, so let fashion come to your rescue. Think boyfriend jeans and flared, wide-legged pants! Team them with a large, comfy sweater — one of the hottest fashion trends in the Philippines right now, especially if it’s striped!

Tip: dress your oversized clothes up or down with peep-toe heeled boots, transparent heels (brought back in style by Kim K), a pair of trendy mules or cool trainers and large accessories like oversized earrings (tassels are so in!) — just mix and match depending on your mood and the occasion (school, girls’ night out or sleepover with your beshies).

3. Perfect in Black: It’s Always in Fashion

Who said anything about being bland while you are on your monthly period? Black can get boring at times so raise the wow factor with different fabrics and finishes. Faux black leather pants, anyone? Or perhaps studded black jeans? Another reason to wear black is that it’s easy to mix and match with other colors and prints.

Tip: worried about your pad bunching if you are wearing the trendiest crop top and tight pants? The advent of thin pads such as Modess Cottony Soft Ultra Thin Regular, means that you don’t need to ditch your body-skimming bottoms when you are having your period.

4. Work It in Athleisure

Love exercising even when having your period? Now more than ever, the lines between your gym and the street have blurred and being fit is the new “It” lifestyle. Luckily for us girls, monochromic athleisure is red-hot and always looks chic. How do you make gymwear street-ready? Layer it up! Pair it with denim or bomber jackets or even a blazer.

When exercising on your period, comfort, avoiding embarrassing stains and not wanting your sanitary pad to show through your clothing are probably uppermost in your mind. Stay worry-free, by using Modess All Night UltraThin pads for superior protection.

Tip: when it comes to rocking your athleisure, it’s all about mixing and matching your gym clothes with everyday items such as jeans, a jacket, running shoes or even combat boots. Throwing on a coat such as an oversized sweater or a sleeveless waistcoat adds a luxe feel to your sporty look and can double-up as a coverup.
