‘Next’ fashion
MULTIPLE CHOICE - Luis Espiritu Jr. (The Philippine Star) - January 12, 2014 - 12:00am

The Christmas season may be over but the holiday look has become an all-year-round wardrobe staple that fits any occasion.  Dressing up this year presents an exploration of style statements to celebrate individual fashion.

On the spotlight is a plethora of looks — majestic, regal, frilly, romantic, classic, thematic or even whimsical. Setting the tone to highlight the new year are modern classic neutrals in gray, black and white. Bold reds are never out this season as they display their stellar status either as an entire piece, mix-match ensembles or as a detail.

Parties go beyond the dazzle and sparkle in both languid and structured tailored designs that will definitely keep your style on the radar. A festive mood still lounges in the air with an all-dressed-up attitude that goes beyond the street and into more refined party settings. Women’s wear from retail to designer is moving towards a new dress code. From the season’s trendsetters to classics, progressive change is transforming recent collections into more relevant fashion.

As 2014 begins, these fashion fetes display practical ideas to add to the wardrobe in the days to come. More than just a statement, the current standard looks are season-less and forever investments. Step into the now with fashion reinventions that welcome 2014 with a bang! 

Happy New Year!
