If you’re a fan of Kapamilya star Maris Racal, then you know very well how talented she is. After hitting it big in Pinoy Big Brother: All In as the second place winner, Maris made a name for herself in the show biz industry with her singing career before venturing into the acting world.
Well, in case you haven’t noticed, this multi-hyphenate has also got a killer fashion sense. Although she veers towards effortless, casual looks, Maris is still able to inject a sexy vibe that oozes with sophistication. Be it a jeans OOTD, or a monochromatic one, this 22-year-old never fails to make a bold statement.
Ahead, we round up 10 of her most stylish outfits to date:
1. White halter top + raw edge jeans + booties
White halter tops are one of Maris’s go-to pieces, and we totally get why—it goes with anything and is perfect for any occasion. For a dressy, casual look, Maris takes her halter and pairs it with slightly flared jeans that cut right above her nude booties. A cute summer look that’s so chic!
2. Cardigan + mom jeans + chunky sneakers
Some people may find it hard to style mom jeans because of its awkward shape and high waist, but not Maris. She pulled it off with a cropped cardigan worn as a top and chunky black sneakers that make for a modern '90s outfit. We can totally see Rachel Green or Monica Geller in this look!
3. Sleeveless top + zebra print skirt + stiletto heels
Wearing animal prints may be daunting for some, but you can take baby steps by drawing inspiration from Maris. She let a fabulous zebra print skirt stand out by pairing it with good old black pieces—a sleeveless cropped top and stiletto heels. It’s a great look that works for daytime, too, if you swap the heels for white sneakers!
4. Monochromatic green OOTD + sneakers
Maris loves to keep it subtly sexy but she also likes to stay comfortable. For a chill day, Maris dons army green co-ords that highlight her toned abs and dressed it down with white sneakers. The perfect chill outfit for those who love baring their midriff!
5. Polka dot dress + black booties
Speaking of colors, one way to wear them would be to opt for prints that are a statement in and of themselves! A foolproof trick to nailing a bold outfit. Here, Maris brightens up her mood with yellow polka dot dress! She even roughens up the dainty vibe by pairing the dress with edgy black boots. What a fashion chameleon!
6. Pink dress + PVC leather boots
Her casual outfits may already be super cool, but that doesn’t mean she’s afraid to amplify it when it comes to formal events or performance costumes. In fact, Maris gamely experiments with different looks, like this editorial-esque outfit consisting of a pink turtleneck dress and PVC leather boots. TBH, we’d totally wear that to a fancy shindig because it’s incredibly fashown!
7. Oversized pullover + flared jeans + white sneakers
It seems like styling jeans is Maris’s specialty! Aside from cropped pairs and mom jeans, Maris proves that she’s also able to pull off flared jeans. On a trip abroad, Maris wore a pair of raw denim flares and an oversized pullover, whose relaxed shape elongated her body. Note how she wore chunky sneakers to add more height. Thanks for the tip, Maris!
8. Green tie-up blouse + quilted leather skirt + pointed toe flats
Aside from her penchant for the cool fashion of the '90s, it turns out that Maris gravitates towards '70s styles, too, just like the vibe she was pulling off in the outfit above. In this case, though, Maris embraces disco fashion by way of a tie-up blouse. She makes it modern with a quilted leather skirt, and dresses it down with flats. We love how she can ace any era and makes it her own!
9. Sunny yellow dress + beige booties
Who says dresses only go with heels and dainty footwear? Not one to miss out on the opportunity to add a little “street” to an outfit, Maris completes a sunny yellow dress with beige booties that literally and sartorially elevate her OOTD. We can picture this chic outfit anywhere from Manila’s city streets to New York’s busy avenues.
10. Bustier draped dress
Maris’ open mindedness allows her to transform into any aesthetic, and this also applies to her evening wear. True to her fashion sense, she wore a Muk Tumang gown to the 2018 ABS-CBN Ball that literally combines the sexy with the classic. It’s a glittering bustier dress spliced with a crimson draped dress to represent her multi-faceted personality.
