Self-care comes in many shapes and forms. While the unprecented pandemic might have spun our lives off track, separating many us from the sources of enjoyment and stability that make us feel most like ourselves, it does help to explore different ways to reclaim our sense of agency and joy. For some, fashion fulfils that purpose. Dressing up, (and figuring out how to dress up specifically for an altered world), figure as valid and healing activities.
This is why our theme for this year's Best Dressed List is Preview's Best (Under) Dressed, putting emphasis on peeling back the sartorial habits of the old normal to make way for the new. Our list recognizes 10 chic Filipinas who've championed their personal style, even amid the quarantine, and have allowed their taste in fashion to grow alongside them. They're fearless, unique, and each have style stories that are deserving of the spotlight.
