Chances are you've been invited to way more weddings than you can possibly keep track of, and that one seemingly failproof dress is starting to look really, really familiar to everyone in the room. Yikes—we can't all be Astrid Leong! Whether you're just not feeling a skirt or are simply looking for a fresh way to show up, know that you can wear the pants (like, literally). Below, five outfit ideas to cop for the next party!
Zara Paisley print suit jacket, P3995; matching trousers, P2295; both Greenbelt 5. Dolce & Gabbana embellished flats, US$899, net-a-porter.com
Ah, what better way to go than in a suit? It's a classic option, but feel free to opt for a gold-accented, paisley-print version paired with statement jeweled flats—you'll be dancing all night!
H&M Tie front off shoulder top, P1490, SM Mega Fashion Hall. Zara Tiered trousers, P3995, Greenbelt 5. Stuart Weitzman Nudist heels, price available upon request, SM Aura
Monochrome's the name of the game! Pink is fashion's current favorite hue du jour, and you can defo wear every shade of it all at once. Throw in dainty deets (tiers and tiers of ruffles, please!) for good measure.
Diane von Furstenberg Floral jumpsuit, US$592, net-a-porter.com. Aquazzura Tasseled sandals, price available upon request, Rustan's Makati
Florals really are groundbreaking, especially when done in this season's tasteful, vintage, chinoiserie-esque permutations. Tasseled sandals are complimentary, welcome touch!
H&M Corset detail shirtdress, P2990, SM Mega Fashion Hall. Uniqlo Printed ankle length trousers, P1499, SM Mega Fashion Hall. Marni Block-heeled mules, price available upon request, Homme et Femme, Shangri-la Plaza Mall
If the ceremony's a tad more laid-back, you can toss a crisp shirtdress over printed trousers and architechtural mules and call it a day. Pay attention to the little things that hike your look a big notch above basic—a corset waist and that on-trend gingham print, for example.
StyleNanda Tie-sleeve blouse, P2279; wide-leg trousers, P2725; both zalora.com.ph. Charles & Keith Ruffle detal leather sandals, P2499, Greenbelt 5
