The White Dress Is Officially Heart Evangelista's Version of a "Duster"
Pambahay OOTD, but make it fashion.

Being extra is the norm in Heart Evangelista’s world. Within the duration of this quarantine alone, she’s proved how creative she can be with just her pambahay OOTDs, having worn head-to-toe designer looks in her TikTok videos and even participating in the Hermès blanket challenge (it’s like the pillow challenge, but designer). Well, it appears that when Heart isn’t staging 11 outfit changes for one video, she’s chilling with her dog Panda in nothing but a white dress. In case you didn’t know, Heart loves wearing all-white ensembles—she even has a hashtag to document all her looks: #LoveMarieXWhites!

We’d like to think of this as her extra way of donning the “duster.” It’s not only a comfy and presko option, but a trendy one, too: The prairie dresses and smock dresses that Heart has been wearing have been hot on the trend list since last year, and they aren’t going anywhere! In fact, for Spring/Summer 2020, romantic, Victorian era-inspired dresses are bigger and bolder. So, what are you waiting for? Take cues from Heart’s looks below and try it yourself:


1. An oversized shirt dress

In her latest white pambahay look, Heart appears to be wearing an oversized shirt dress with beaded Gucci leather slides. She even added a few rings to accessorize! She wore a similar shirt dress last month but completed her look with furry slides instead.

2. Tie strap day dress

Since a shirt dress sometimes isn't enough to combat the scorching heat, Heart turns to a simple tie strap day dress to stay fresh. We love how she added a padded headband to up the ante! 

3. Chinoiserie print dress 


Nothing spells elegance like a whimsical chinoiserie print, especially one in a classic blue and white colorway. Here, Heart varies her typical white dress by wearing one in this print and matching it with her Dolce & Gabbana sandals. 

4. Off-shouldered dress 

A youthful, modern take on the smock dress is this off-shouldered number that makes Heart look every inch the plantita that she is! We’re sure you’ve got a similar piece lying around somewhere. Just weave a scarf into your braids like Heart’s to really seal the look! 


5. Bridal robe

Who says bridal robes can only be ordered for your big day? If you want to elevate your pambahay look, make like Heart and wear a lace robe every day! If this doesn’t make you feel like the madame of the household, we don’t know what will. 


6. Feather frock and white button-down

For days when she feels a little more studious, Heart makes sure she looks the part by throwing on a crisp white button-down on top of her feathery frock. She made sure to retain the luxe vibe by keeping a few jewelry pieces. You can cop this look yourself by swapping the frock for a regular slip dress!
