Bench Fashion Week ’24: Our Fave Styling Hacks from Flagship Brand Bench

By Stylish Team

The recently held Bench Fashion Week truly made waves on social media, particularly for the runway segment of flagship brand Bench. The ramp was dominated by eternal Filipina teen queens Kathryn Bernardo and Francine Diaz, timeless hotties Ina Raymundo and Sunshine Cruz, beauty pageant title holders Michelle Dee and Celeste Cortesi and showbiz cuties Angelina Cruz, Atasha Muhlach, Vivoree Esclito and Bianca Umali, to name a few.

With ’60s and ’70s rock music blasting during the runway show, the styling was a mix of retro rock influences, preppy chic looks, clean streetwear getup, and modern beachwear just in time for the summer season in the Philippines. Cool, elevated, comfy, yet stylish dailywear is the expertise of Filipino clothing line Bench, after all.

Hands down, there are some cute styling hacks we can totally incorporate into our daily styling this summer from the show. Here are our faves:
