August is known as Buwan ng Wika in the Philippines as a means for Filipinos to highlight and appreciate our rich culture and heritage. Besides celebrating the variety of languages spoken in our country, students would feast on local delicacies and wear traditional Filipino clothes for a day. As for the adults, it's not exactly an event that is observed in the office by wearing terno and barong.
Sometimes, it's easy to forget that our heritage can be commemorated in simple ways. No need to wear the elaborate traditional wear. Even beyond the month of August, you can opt to switch up your daily look by incorporating these pieces from Filipino designers, exclusively available at Rustan's.
