My Clozette Style: #TeamClozette On Individual Fashion | Clozette


Style is an important part of our identities. As Miuccia Prada once said, "What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language." Whether we like it or not, the way we dress impacts not just our mood but also the way others see us. It may seem superficial but it's true. In a way, putting together an ensemble is like weaving words that speak about who we are. 


This month, we're celebrating personal style and making memorable fashion statements with our #MyClozetteStyle series where #TeamClozette shares their signature looks, fashion mishaps, and more. Keep reading to know more.


Business Team: Evon, Chloe and Niky




How do you describe your personal style? 


Evon: Comfortwear that I have like baggy pants. And I think most of my wardrobe is like black [and] white. 

Niky: I like to keep things simple, but I like to wear things on the monochrome level. So you'll always see me in something in all red, all black. I do love long sleeves as well.

Chloe: My personal style is no prints, big size, big items. 


What's your biggest fashion regret?


Niky: I used to wear these really awfully thick high heel platforms. 

Evon: New Future skinny red jeans plus slippers. Not a beautiful sight.

Chloe: Listening to my mum that for the same amount of price you pay, buy more materials. So I ended up having a lot of very baggy, hip-hop looking pants and jeans.


Campaigns Team: Eunice, Stephanie and Jamie



How do you describe your personal style?


Eunice: Smart casual. I love to play with layers and sometimes, I would just wear a blazer over a very casual outfit and then go with heels.

Stephanie: I like to play with a highly fashionable piece with a tinge of casual wear.

Jamie: My personal style would be minimalist because I like to wear a one-piece dress. It actually saves me time in the morning to pick the right outfit and I can just go out like that.


What's the best fashion tip you've been given?


Stephanie: The best fashion tip that someone has ever shared with me is to wear the correct innerwear. Eunice: When in doubt, layer up.

Jamie: Maximise the minimal. For example, you can just wear a plain tee but then you can accessorise with like statement earrings or a strong ring to make it pop.


Creative Team: Laura and Audrey



How do you describe your personal style? 


Laura: I have very tan skin so I don’t like to wear monochrome. I prefer wearing anything that has prints or colours.

Audrey: My personal style is anything jeans with sneakers and I love a pop of colour like this shirt.


What's your closet must-have?


Laura: I think it will be a denim jacket because whenever I’m feeling very lazy, a denim jacket will help to elevate my look.

Audrey: I think for myself, it would be a printed top. Because, when you wear something very basic, I think a printed top would help you look better also.


Clozette Co-Founders: Kersie and Cheryl



How do you describe your personal style? 


Kersie: I would think that I have a smart casual style. I like little details like these in my outfits.

Cheryl: I define my style as classic. My outfits are mostly in black like what I wore today.


If your house were on fire, what fashion item will you be saving?


Cheryl: I want to take everything! My bag, my shoes…

Kersie: No, no, no! Just one!

Cheryl: Tough choice. I’ll choose this watch. It’s a gift from my husband so it has sentimental value to it and ever since I heard the backstory about this watch, I’ve always wanted it.

Kersie: If I have to choose one fashion item, I think my shoes — my staple shoes. I think they’ve been with me for years, so I think they are hard to replace. So, shoes for me.

It’s Monday and we’re back to hustle! As you work towards your goals, keep your week interesting by reading up on all the exciting news. From content creators in the Philippines enjoying a night of glitz and glam at the E! Pop Gala to Emily Ratajkowski being sued for posting a photo on IG — here are all the juiciest updates you need to know for the days to come. Read up and get your week started with these fresh bites.


Filipino content creators enjoy a dazzling E! Pop Gala



This year, E! Philippines’ annual E! Bloggers Ball got an exciting update. Opening this year as the E! Pop Gala, the event held at City of Dreams Manila last 27 October was definitely bigger and better. Now on its fourth year, E! Pop Gala marks the annual gathering of the digital community in the Philippines. From bloggers, vloggers, to online celebrities and influencers (including some members of our very own Clozette Community) — all the trendsetters were there for a night to remember. Hosted by TV presenter Janeena Chan with performances by local acts, the gala was a celebration of pop culture, with the most influential guests coming in glam outfits inspired by iconic fashion moments. Check out the awardees above.


Is it friendship over for Jeffree Star and Tati Westbrook?



Meanwhile, drama seems to be brewing yet again within the digital community on the other side of the globe. After defending Tati Westbrook during her feud with James Charles, beauty mogul Jeffree Star has reportedly unfollowed his friend on Twitter and Instagram. Neither of them has commented on it publicly, but fans are speculating it might have been because Tati released her eyeshadow palette one week before Jeffree and Shane Dawson released theirs. So, is it really friendship over for the two? Let’s wait until all tea is spilled — perhaps we’ll even find out on their upcoming videos on YouTube.



Emily Ratajkowski is being sued for posting a photo of herself on IG



Life can be really messy for celebrities. Even more so for Emily Ratajkowski right now. Apparently, photographer Robert O’Neil has filed a lawsuit against the model for copyright infringement. The image was of Emily taken while she was out in New York. She posted it on her Instagram stories, which was live for 24 hour. The photographer is claiming she used his image without properly crediting him. He’s seeking USD150,000 plus the profits the model made from his work. This isn’t the first time he sued a celebrity for using his photos without credit; last time, it was Gigi Hadid for posting a photo of Zayn Malik. Should celebrities have no ownership of photos taken of them? What do you think?




Maje launches their first sustainable collection


Maje releasing their first-ever sustainable collection and content creators in the Philippines enjoying the E! Pop Gala are just two of the biggest news this weekend.


On a more positive note, French fashion brand Maje makes a statement with the launch of their first-ever sustainable collection. The brand takes their first step towards a more ethical approach on fashion with First Stone, a capsule collection of denim. In case you didn't know, making denim is one of the most wasteful production processes in the industry. By adopting new stone-wash techniques in the production, Maje has made a considerable reduction to their water, chemical, and energy consumption. The eco-friendly collection is showcased by three women — Nuria, Michaela, and Bianca — who are actively spearheading initiatives for the environment. Work your way towards sustainable living, too, by shopping the capsule collection when it comes out this November in Maje’s boutique in Marina Bay Sands.
