Saying that it's too hot in the Philippines is an understatement. It is a surprise that most women professionals, and probably a few men too, own at least one scarf. I know a few who own more than ten. Yes, you got that right. Scarves in the Philippines. Crazy huh? Uhmm, maybe not.
You see, because the sun loves being close to us all year long, people here tend to wear summer clothes. But most workplaces, malls, and even churches have been copying the chilly environment of Alaska to give people a sense of relief from the blistering heat. So the moment they step in the air conditioning confines of their work building, they need something to make themselves warm. Of course, it needs to be easily removable, and yes, fashionable, too. Hence, the scarf.
It's a theory so I may be wrong. Some might just be wearing them for fashion.
