MANILA, Philippines - Warehouse takes you on a rollercoaster ride of style. High, square shoulders, high-shine frocks and metallic embellishment take center stage this season. The label’s juxtaposition of rich hues such as teal and purple against black creates an impression of polished, sophisticated elegance.

Lead the way in elegant ensembles sure to make you the life of the party.

Architect of style: Draw admiring glances with a statement dress. Warehouse’s sculpted sleeve dress doesn’t need much. Stretch cotton tights, a studded pleated clutch, chain necklace and black cuff set off the dress’s architectural elements perfectly.

Hip to be square: Straddle the line between ladylike and laid-back. Slip on a chunky tweed jacket to dress up a pair of jeggings and a studded shirt by Warehouse. A metallic studded quilted purse and structured bangle add some laidback luxe to the look.

The shining: Twilight’s vampires aren’t the only sparkly things that are big this season. This starry number from Warehouse is the go-to piece of the collection. The label’s liquid sequin blazer can be worn with a minidress and platforms for the club or, as seen here, with black jeggings and ombré diamanté vest. Don’t hesitate to pile on the accessories such as the quilted resin bangle, wide chain bangle, and knotted snake chain necklace. Go casual with an ‘80s body bag.

Just bead it: Come in cocktail ready attire. This bejeweled dress by Warehouse is ladylike and playful — just what you need to go about town during the holidays. Pair with high heels and patent and faux snakeskin clutch.

Ace of lace: A fitted lace dress by Warehouse is the perfect dress to get you from one lavish party to another. Finish with a studded pleated clutch, opaque tights, black cuff and teardrop waterfall choker.

Cutting edge: Be alluring in this cutwork lace blouse by Warehouse. Flattering peekaboo cutouts are playful and sexy without being over the top. Wear with a jacquard umbrella skirt, suede chainmail clutch, opaque tights and etched bangles.
