Truth be told, Holiday season is the season “to see and be seen”. It comes with endless parties and reunions that require you to look your best because, well…cameras are there to witness and capture your party OOTD. Moments like these, you wouldn’t want to be caught unprepared. For the gram, you have to look your best. And for the inner fashionista in you, you have to be star of every holiday party. What to wear then, for that scheduled dinner invite? We’ve rounded up a rack-full of fash and fab possibilities that you can get at Estancia Mall.
Classic cuts, clean lines, casual elegance. Uniqlo is everything about having that understated look that speaks of timeless style. It’s casual wear minus the grunge street style vibe. It speaks of that signature minimalist modern design reflective of Japanese aesthetics. For lunches, the best picks for Uniqlo are cotton dresses, casual tops with ankle-length pants, and chino shorts paired with ¾-sleeved tops. For men, relaxed-fit jeans paired with polo shirts remain a classic. Dinners go well with shirts layered with cardigans, formal trousers, or turtlenecks paired with slim fit jeans.
This retail clothing label from the US is known for its comfortable, clean, and confident designs. It houses basic clothing essentials for men, women, and kids; collections that vary from one season to another. But while the vibe is classic, Gap plays with pops of colors that break the monotony of solid neutrals. The brightest brights and playful stripes go well with light cardigans and sweats that one can layer on casual graphic tees and jeans. These are perfect for outdoor gatherings where the “ber” breeze is mostly felt.
Lacoste style may not be as varied as the other casual fashion labels but its charm lies on its understated elegance punctuated by the iconic logo: the crocodile. Inspired by tennis enthusiast Rene Lacoste, this label is known for its apparel that allows easy movement. Pique shirts paired with slacks, sports dresses paired with white sneakers, knitwear with scarves and stoles, plus a nice leather bag— these are the best holiday picks for this French label.
