Even a simple shirt-and-denims combo can be the most eye-catching street wear with the right attitude. Don't be afraid to experiment and give your daily look a personal touch to show off your own style. Always remember that fashion can only go so far with how you carry yourself. 
"Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered." - Giorgio Armani

Most of the fashion icons that shaped how we see elegance and glamour has done it effortlessly. From the classic beauty of Audrey Hepburn to the avant garde appeal of Lady Gaga, these women may be at different ends of fashion styles and yet they have one thing in common -- being unforgettable. You may prefer one look over the other but the main take away from this is that elegance is not about stealing the spotlight-- it's being comfortable in your own skin that the spotlight can't help but focus on you.

"Clothes are like a good meal, a good movie, great pieces of music." - Michael Kors

It's so easy to overthink fashion to the point that we forget one of its most important aspects -- authenticity. Just like getting satisfaction from our favourite things in life, our clothes should suit our tastes and preferences and not the other way around.

"Luxury is the ease of a t-shirt in a very expensive dress." - Karl Lagerfeld

Whether or not you have the money to splurge, keep in mind that it doesn't matter how much your outfit costs-- fashion and comfort should always go hand-in-hand.

“Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.” - Alexander McQueen

Coming up with your OOTDs should be an avenue for you to feel free and empowered. Getting caught up with following every single trend should be a choice, not a necessity.

A symphony of kaleidoscopic spotlights in motion, a crowd filled with watchful eyes on the stage, and anticipation for a fashion show you can’t miss -- what better way to hype up a new collection than to bring in the newest PENSHOPPE ambassador all the way from Los Angeles to Manila?

Last 29th July 2016, PENSHOPPE made a lot of noise in the fashion scene by bringing one of their famed ambassadors to grace the runway for their pre-holiday collection at Conrad Hotel Manila: supermodel and Internet sensation, Lucky Blue Smith! Born and raised in a small town in Spanish Fork, Utah, the 6-foot-2 18-year old beauty started his modeling career at the age of 12 and has effortlessly made his way up the glittery steps of the modelling industry by working with big-time labels such as Bottega Veneta, Etro, Michael Kors, and Versace. And at the Conrad Hotel, he looked better than ever with his signature platinum blond hair and blue eyes casting spellbinding gazes towards the audience as he strutted down the catwalk.

With the “Rule The City” pre-holiday collection hitting stores today, it’s no wonder why Lucky was chosen as PENSHOPPE’s new ambassador. Combining laid-back and contrasting pieces, splashed with monochromatic colors and prints, the collection is a fresh set that puts the spotlight on the fundamental elements of every cool kid’s fashion statement – allowing each individual personality to shine.

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the chicest pieces from the collection!

The Millennial Layers

Tired of your repeating a T-shirt and jeans combo on casual days? Funk up your wardrobe by pairing your light-washed jeans with a pastel colored shirt, and finish it off with a monochromatic-coloured jacket. If you want to look more hardcore, get your ripped denims and sport this outfit with bangin’ confidence!

Ready to be urbanised? Pick out your favourite graphic tee, pair it with dark-coloured pants or trousers, and top it off with a white jacket or any outerwear that complements the overall look. Look classy and snazzy with this cool kid starter pack!

Pop Funk

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours! Step out of your comfort zone and take an adventurous style in planning your outfit. Take an ombre or gradient tee and match it with navy blue jeans to nail that contemporary pop style and stand out in a crowd. If you’re ready to take it to the next level, you can add a neckerchief with the same shade as your tee to complete your comfy and modern look.

Plain and Plaids

Don’t put those plaids in the back of your cabinet because plaids are in this season! Match them with ripped black denims, a black hoodie, and your favourite kicks to achieve that chill and edgy style.
