Plus, where you can rent ternos and barongs!

Finding a dress to wear for a special occasion can sometimes be a stressful task—what more when you're attending a Filipino-themed wedding (or office function) where you're advised to come in wearing a terno. Chances are, you don't readily have this traditional piece in your closet. 

To make shopping a little easier, here are a couple of places where you can get a Filipiniana (and a barong!), from classic styles to modern designs that you can re-wear even on casual days.

1. Kultura

Locally, Kultura is one of the most widely-known stores to shop for terno and barong, especially since it's easily accessible through SM malls. The local brand includes both traditional and modern designs so you're sure to find lots of options here! 

Invest in this Filipiniana that you can reuse a thousand times—just wear it with different trousers! For a semi-formal occasion, try pairing it with a dressy pair of cigarette pants, or if you're attending a more formal affair, team it up with a floor-length skirt (it comes with a matching skirt which you can get for P14,999.75).

2. Tygie 

Filipinianas do not come cheap, so you might want to invest in something that you won't only wear once or twice. This Valenzuela-based clothing brand's Filipino-themed creations won't just look elegant for evening affair, but even on a regular day at work, too. The brand incorporates details of traditional Pinoy clothing like butterfly sleeves to casual, everyday pieces like boleros.
