Among all the new year’s resolutions you probably have, the quickest (and the easiest) has got to be getting a better wardrobe — after all, it’s just a click away! From an indie street style brand to Megan Young’s go-to dress store, we’ve culled in three local Instagram shops worth checking out this 2018. P.S. Get ready to splurge and to hit that “follow” button.
1. Copper | @shopcopper
If one of your style pegs happen to be Aimee Song and you’re aiming for a wardrobe with a street style flair, this one’s for you. From graphic statement shirts, plaid skirts to track pants, this local indie brand is quick to release the latest in street style, and the pieces don’t even come with a hefty price tag! Most recently, we’ve spotted Liza Soberano — who instantly looked like a street style star — in their cool checkered suit.
2. Better Basics | @better.basics
Every fashion girl knows the importance of owning the basics, whether it’s a flattering pair of jeans or a pristine white shirt. But since you already have those in your wardrobe, it’s about time that you invest in a couple upgraded basics (think: long evening dresses for major occasions or back-baring black tops for cocktail hours). This local shop takes pride in versatile pieces that you can easily throw on in any given day.
We're ready to fall in love with new designs that will make dressing up for celebrations and events prettier and easier. Own a piece (or two) from this limited edition collection, email [email protected] to get the catalog. Items are not yet up elsewhere and exclusively distributed through email. Featuring the Rosa satin wrap dress from The Celebration Collection
We invite you not just to support local brands but love them as well. At the core of most online brands is the love to support local makers (may it be for shoes or clothes). Better Basics is happy to employ fellow Filipinos from patternmaking, sewing to retail. What are your other favorite local brands? Comment and tag them below, we'd love to see how we can collaborate!
Here's to celebrating the big and small things in life because with how challenging things can get, we need to give ourselves a pat on the back more often. It won't hurt to make your back the center of attention once in a while too. 😜 Email [email protected] for the catalog of THE CELEBRATION COLLECTION. Releasing soon.
3. Love, Lilie | @shop.lovelilie
Instagram-worthy dresses, right this way! Love, Lilie boasts feminine and playful pieces with ruffles, polka dots, and bows as its accents. Since it launched in Manila late last year, the local brand (which also sells worldwide) has won the hearts of many celebrities in the likes of Megan Young, Lovi Poe, and Coleen Garcia, among many others.
