If there’s one classic print that’s holiday-appropriate without being too Christmasy, it would definitely have to be stripes. Whether slim lines or bold ones, the graphic quality of stripes lend any outfit an oomph that makes it a standout at special occasions. Take stripes to a whole new level of chicness with just the right amount of festiveness for this time of the year by taking your cue from these looks on Kapamilya beauty Liza Soberano:
What else spells holiday best than metallics? This shimmery top and striped palazzo pants combo on Liza, styled by Perry Tabora, is perfect for that day when you have so many things to do but still have several Christmas parties to run to come evening, because it’s easy to move around in and strikes the perfect balance between laidback and dressy.
For more casual occasions, say an outreach program or outdoor party, or even just Christmas shopping, throw on a slouchy striped shirt and jeans for that effortlessly cool girl vibe. Stick to a black and white color palette for your stripes as its sophistication is unparalleled even if you don’t mean to be too dressy. If you want to bring along a cardigan or sweater, make sure it comes in smaller striped prints for proportion.
And if you just want to keep things simple yet sleek? Go for a striped long sleeved turtleneck top like this on Liza, also styled by Perry, which is guaranteed to give the illusion of a leaner silhouette, and of course, a black leather skirt—you can never go wrong with this neutral-colored ensemble if you want to impress your crush, your boss, or even your future in laws because it spells easy elegance.
