What Jessica Sanchez is wearing this summer

SHEER cover-ups keep things warm on a breezy summer night.

Knowing exactly what to buy in stores this summer is one thing, but if you want your warm-weather ensemble to be stylish, you need to know how to put an outfit together.

Take a cue from American Idol Jessica Sanchez, who dons the latest summer collection from Bench. Bench delights you with a colorful collection of revamped basics suited for all kinds of summer festivities.

In the sun-and-sand season, the aim is to have a relatively relaxed outfit that is still fashionable. Now is the time for the cutest summer essentials—just be sure to keep them casual. Flowers are definitely blooming in Bench’s summer collection.

IF YOU’RE planning to skip the bikini, go for a pair of hot floral shorts and a nice button-down top.

The key piece: a hot pair of floral shorts that everyone is sure to be smitten with. Pair it with a button-down top which you can tie at the midriff.   And what’s summer without denim? Reincarnated as shorts, of course.

Bench comes out with a soft denim version that’s ultra comfy and perfect for a day in the sand and surf. It looks cool when teamed with a simple T-shirt or loose tank. By nightfall, protect yourself from the cool summer breeze with thin layering.

Stripes also come into play, a reminder of all things nautical. Gearing away from the usual blue and white lines, Bench offers the striped print in fruity colors like peach.

While stripes remain a summer staple, polka dots are not far behind. From billowy skirts to sheer cover-ups, it’s a cheerful way of creating a statement with your look.

JESSICA Sanchez dons Bench’s latest summer collection— fresh-looking, fun and modestly flirty.

For a night out on the town, sometimes a summer dress won’t cut it. Bench’s white hot skinny pair of denims will look just as effortlessly stylish. It’s so basic that it goes with any top in your closet. The result will always be fresh and clean.

All the fun, easy-breezy clothing from Bench’s summer collection exudes the carefree and feel-good spirit of the season. Worship the sun in a collection of warm-weather outfits, as worn by American Idol Jessica Sanchez.

    Is she famous yet?

    • madam01

      why not ask yourself?

      • BIGButo

        I did ask myself I googled it she is not famous yet for your information. A this person is an American not a Filipino. Maybe that’s why she is not famous.

  • virgoyap

    Why are we so crazy of owning Jessica Sanchez she doesn’t even know a single Filipino language?

    • marionics

      ma at ma pa rin. meron nga akong nakatalo dito sinabi ko lang na alang itsu itong si jessica sanchez e tatlong araw akong kinulit. talk about fanatics

      • angie1875

        Maganda ang boses. Ang itsura niya, gawa ng Diyos, Pangit din naman si Manny Pacqiao pero fanatics din tayo sa kanya…naging congressman pa.

      • marionics

        at least di mo pinipilit na maganda siya.

    • angie1875

      It just shows that magaling ang Pilipino kahit ipinanganak sa US. Would you prefer news involving Filipino nanny who killed kids or Versace? This just serves as inspiration to us Filipinos.

  • phthlateous

    who is Jessica Sanchez and why does media want us to know what she is wearing ?

    why do we have to know this ?

    what is its purpose ?

    • angie1875

      She serves as a role model for Fil Ams who did well w/ their talents in American Idol in the USA. For the teen agers who idolize mga Baretto sisters, she serves as a positive model for clothes.

      • BIGButo

        I don’t think she is Filipino. From what I am reading she is American. Her dad is in the U S Navy and he is also an American. Her mom was a Filipino married to this American navy man. She was also born in America so she is not at all Filipino. Now this girl is American so what is the big deal about her here in the Philippines.

      • phthlateous

        I think it is called “selling a product”; in other words another business trying to make money, most specially to the gullible (and there are so many of them).

        She should have a good PR manager (usually a Jew) who will create an image people will buy. Come up with song CDs, dance every now and then, then act and hopefully get in Hollywood, then create a line of clothes, then go to the Phils. so that adoring fans will buy tickets to her show. So predictable how they create a business on one they declare to the world as a “talent”.

        Just another all-too-familiar pattern of how Hollywood makes dough.
