It's that season once again when the ideal (and rightly so) colors of clothing to wear are of the lighter spectrum. Lighter colors reflect sunshine --resulting to lesser heat absorption. But ideally, "loose" should go hand-in-hand with light colors if you're the one to suggest. Tight-fitting clothing, regardless if it's light in color, restricts air to flow between you and your muscle t-shirt. My go-to loose and light clothing of choice for the season? The crisp white shirt.

I have around 10 in my collection. It is classic, clean (duh?), and easy to style. I usually pair it with jeans --a no-brainer.

White also projects freshness! Just spray on a light cologne for you to not just look, but smell, the part, too.

On a deeper level, white represents peace, purity, and new beginnings. A clean slate and fresh start. That's why World Vision partnered with Zonrox GentleClean for the White Event.

"This 2015 marks the start of a clean slate and fresh beginning with our partners in Green Cross, Inc., makers of Zonrox GentleClean. We have invited our generous celebrity friends to share their white, pre-loved pieces of clothing and be part of a unique way of brightening our children's future," Jun Godornes, national Resource Development Director of World Vision said.

The White Event is an online auction website ( where we can bid for the white clothing/items of our favorite celebrities with the proceeds going to the rehabilitation of select classrooms of the Catmon Integrated School in Malabon City.

Nicole Postrado, Brand Manager of Zonrox GentleClean, expressed the brand's excitement on this joint effort, saying, "Zonrox fully supports World Vision on this noble endeavor. The White Event is such a unique way of sharing and giving back to communities such as Catmon."

"The auction gives celebrities and ordinary people a chance to share their comfort for the benefits of others. Through the White Event, everyone can participate in helping provide the youth of Catmon Integrated School a clean and hopeful beginning this coming school year," she added.
