From teen queen to fashion royalty.

Not only is Kathryn Bernardo one of the biggest stars in the country, she's also one of the most fashionable. The former teen queen has established a distinct sartorial look that is relaxed yet stylish, and totally her own. With a closet filled with neutral tones and breezy silhouettes, the 26-year-old definitely has her signature look down pat. But did you know that this seemingly effortless aesthetic took years in the making? 

Below, we take a look at Kathryn Bernardo's style evolution from 2015 up to present. While Kath started displaying a penchant for pants, classic cuts, and timeless hues early on, we'll see that it was age (and experimentation!) that polished and fine-tuned her chic wardrobe. Scroll on!

Kathryn Bernardo's Style Evolution

2015

On her final year as a teen queen, Kath was often spotted in dainty and feminine garb that mirrored her young leading lady persona. Romantic lace and her pastel Valentino Rockstuds were her constants during this time.

2016

In 2016, Kath embraced jeans and basic neutral tops. Dressed down with sneakers, or dressed up in heels, the less-is-more principle clearly took center stage this year. It was basic but definitely not boring, what with her designer bags and accessories!

2017

We saw an edgier Kathryn when she turned 21. While her love for denim would continue from 2016, we'd see her mix it up with dark and grungy pieces that made her look totally rocker chic.

2018

We can already see traces of Kathryn's current style in 2018 when she would opt for classic polished pieces. During this time, however, she would also inject patterns to liven up her otherwise minimalist looks.

2019

2019 saw Kathryn experimenting more with fashion. We'd see her try colors and pay homage to trends from decades past. We love how effortlessly her fashion references bounced from mod girl to Annie Hall to Charlie's Angel. Fun fact: This was also the year she was honored in Preview's Best Dressed List

2020

Tailored pieces made its way to the top spot of Kath's closet in 2020. The pandemic and subsequent quarantines didn't stop her from pursuing her stylish slouchy look that incorporated corporate staples. On lazier days, she'd ditch the blazer and pair a casual tanktop with tailored trousers—such a cool girl!

2021

Jumping off from her 2020 layering phase, Kath started embracing loose and flowy silhouettes for a more sophisticated look. She brought on the volume without looking frumpy thanks to breezy fabrics and neutral tones. She was proof that the hubadera aesthetic isn't the only way to look sexy!

2022

The actress added another signature look to her style repertoire—the model off-duty! She has definitely mastered this laidback yet headturning combo of oversized tops and leg-flaunting bottoms, completed with comfy footwear and the latest it-bag. Fans of her minimalist aesthetic need not fret though, as she has still kept her neutrals and breezy silhouettes in heavy rotation.
