The #1 source for fashion inspiration from real people around the world.
With the holidays fast approaching, Manil-enans disperse to outskirts of philippine soil (hongkong, korea, japan, among others) to find cooler climates and enjoy the festivities with family and friends. For fashion savants like me, this gives us a highly anticipated excuse to unearth our scarves and booties from hibernation. However, one need not traverse to the north pole to make use of these seasonal creations. As a general rule, choose 1 or 2 highlight pieces and combine with the basics, keeping the rest on subtle supporting roles. This season's trends introduces leather, the come-back of metallic pieces (opulent silver and gold), and the proliferation of fur with its onset during holiday 2010. Color blocks, laces are taking the backseat, but will lurk the battlefield as staples. Colors: luxurious silver and gold, richer shade of camel tones-- chocolate brown. New color: striking fuschia. Basic color: mustards, rust orange, blues. Accessories: hats (berets, soft hats with rims) are hot right now. Take cue from here and let me know how its works. Later <3
