Be A Santarina This Christmas | Clozette

Get in the festive spirit this season by dressing up as a Santarina! What’s that, you may ask? It’s the female version of Santa Claus, of course (and it's not Mrs. Claus)! Being a Santarina means you can bring out your sexy and fun side, adding much needed warmth to this cold weather we’re experiencing this season! But being one doesn’t mean you dress up exactly like a naughty Santa Claus, though. Your creative and fashion choices can come in to play, too!


So for this holiday season, no matter the occasion and where you go, you can be one! How? Just keep reading below for the 5 gorgeous Santarina inspirations this Christmas using fashionable pieces from UNIQLO’s collection!

--------------------------


The Chic Santarina


A chic Santarina is one who is always on top of her game and feels (and knows) she can conquer anything. At the beginning of the day, she puts on her Christmas hat and lipstick, and is ready to flawlessly triumph over anything!

So if you want to be a chic Santarina, look the part by donning a striped Ponte Pencil Mini Skirt to elegantly show off your gams, a cream Extra Fine Cotton Long Shirt for a breathable and comfy top, and some killer black or nude heels! Accessorise with a Carine Silk Stole for that extra touch of femininity and high-fashion finish!


The Serene Santarina


A Santarina shouldn’t be troubled by anything because she embodies this lighthearted, beautiful, and joyous character! Nothing should ever look like something’s troubling her. So to emulate that look and vibe, a serene Santarina can dress up in a comfortable yet gorgeous getup! A black AIRism Bra Camisole will give your body a little more coverage and warmth, with a green Ponte Flare Long Dress that will softly define your curves. You can finish off your look with an off-white Cotton Cashmere V Neck Cardigan, paired with a "no makeup" makeup look for that subtle, fresh-faced Santarina glow!


Party Santarina


Santarinas, fun and free-spirited, are there to cause people great joy! They’re especially fun to be with during parties or festive celebrations! So if you want to dress up like the best holiday character of the season at your next party, you can be a Party Santarina with some chic Christmas-coloured pieces such a bright red Ponte Flare Short Sleeve Dress which will look excellent on the dance floor, and a white Vintage Narrow Belt to accentuate your waist!

Playful Santarina


Everyone has a playful and naughty side to them. If you want to get in the festive mood, rock a gorgeous Santarina outfit that will bring out all your playful tendencies and allow you to move freely and comfortably!

A sky blue Striped Boat Neck Dress will give you that beautiful feminine look, and when paired with a brown Vintage Belt, it will give the dress a chic shape! Accessorising with a black and white Boucle Scarf will add more colour to your look, while topping everything off with a Santa Hat will turn you into a Santarina no one will forget!


Cool Santarina


The definition of “cool” can often be puzzling and confusing, as well as subjective. But a “cool” Santarina, one who can embody playfulness to sexiness, is the one who will make all holiday parties enjoyable and exciting. She has the complete package, so if you want to be a cool Santarina this Christmas, you’re going to have to dress the part.

Just take a white AIRism Bra Sleeveless Top as your undergarment for that soft, simple look, a baby pink Extra Fine Cotton Long Shirt to give a pop of colour, and some black Ankle Length Pants for a comfortable but sexy finish! This look will give you and comfort and movability while being extra chic!

No one wants to look anything short of fab and festive on the last night of 2015. But with the holidays in full swing, it can be a little tricky to find time to plan a second holiday outfit. More often than not, the NYE party outfit becomes an afterthought. Gasp!

Not to worry – we’ve got you covered. Here are five fun ideas to make your NYE outfit a little extra special. Now, just sit back, relax and raise a glass. Cheers!

--------------------------


Skip the sequins this year


(Get It Here)

There’s nothing wrong with sequins and glitters, but there are plenty of alternatives that are equally festive as the sequin dress. Take for example --- brocade. It’s an unfussy yet fancy fabric that’s glam in all the right ways. Pick: ASOS Ganni Brocade Dress

Get comfy


(Get It Here)

Say hello to your trusty sweater. If you’re at a house party, it’s okay not to wear a dress. Know that you can still keep your look classy with a bright sweater, paired with slim-fit pants and chic flats or sneakers. Pick: ModCloth Braids For Days Sweater


Be one of the boys


(Get It Here)

For a black tie affair, look sleek like the guys and wear a menswear-inspired tuxedo rather than a sparkly gown. Pick: Nordstrom Mural Open-Front Tuxedo Blazer


Make your jewellery the center of your look


(Get It Here)

Let one accessory do the talking for you by making a statement necklace or a pair of big, vintage-inspired earrings the focal point of your outfit. Pair it with a simple tank dress or silk shirt. For a laid-back approach, wear it with a white shirt and unbutton the first two clasps. Pick: ZALORA PH Ethnic Statement Necklace


Keep it unexpected


(Get It Here)

Don’t be afraid to top off your outfit with a turban, fascinator or a unique headband. It’s NYE after all, let your fashion eccentricity fly this 2016! Pick: Nasty Gal Blair Bow Headband

With the vision of making fashion a lot more accessible to everyone, Clozette recently partnered with female-centric blogging network, Blogger Babes Asia, and Asia’s online fashion destination, ZALORA, for #DecodingStyle—a fashion styling workshop and shopping party designed for bloggers and social media influencers looking to up their fashion-game in time for the holiday season.

Held at the ZALORA Pop-Up Store in Shangri-La Plaza in The Philippines, the event was a wonderful way for Clozette, Blogger Babes Asia, ZALORA, and all the invited guests to close off 2015 in style.



After all, as one of Asia’s top fashion and beauty communities, Clozette has always envisioned bridging the gap between style, shopping, and community. With #DecodingStyle, Clozette has taken its community off-line in its very first shopping event with Blogger Babes Asia and ZALORA, delivering a holiday treat filled with fashion, shopping, and mingling.

Styling Session

Guests were treated to a Styling Segment, which saw ZALORA’s in-house stylist Mika Reyes and Clozette Ambassador Gela Muñoz share their styling tips on how to dress for the holiday season. Each stylist showcased 5 holiday-ready looks, with Mika giving the guests a peek into holiday-glam styling; while Clozette Ambassador Gela styled holiday street-style looks for those who may want to keep it casual and street for the season.


Games & Prizes




Since it's the holiday season, we wanted to also treat our guests to fashion and beauty prizes courtesy of Clozette and ZALORA Philippines. Up for grabs were gift packs from The Body Shop and Benefit Cosmetics, Earrings from Marc by Marc Jacobs, ZALORA Shopping Vouchers, and a professional photoshoot at the ZALORA Studios.



Shopping Treat




Guests were also given an exclusive Shopping Party as Clozette and ZALORA treated guests with Shopping Vouchers to purchase whatever they liked at the ZALORA Pop-Up Store. With ZALORA’s Stylists on hand and the Pop-Up Store exclusively closed to the public, guests were given a personalized shopping experience which allowed them to fit the clothes before making the final purchase through ZALORA’s online shopping system.


Catching Up With Friends
