Ready to see new sights and meet new people? You may have written down “travel more” as one of your goals this year, and we're sure you're excited. Now, while travelling is a fun experience, it can also get a bit stressful especially if you're not prepared.

So to help you ease the load of travelling stress, we're sharing a few tips on how you can make your journey easier. Up your travelling arsenal a notch with these practical tips.


Bag 'em

One of the easiest ways to organise your things for travel is by storing them in different bags. Keep one each for your clothes, accessories, and makeup. You can either go the clear route, so it's easier for you to see your stuff. You can also opt to go for ones that are labelled.

You open your bag and your cables for your mobile phone charger, laptop and other electronic devices are entwined — that's the picture of something that can cause you stress while on your trip. Thankfully, there's a way to avoid it. Make sure that you organise your cables before your trip. You can use a dedicated cable organiser or you can simply make sure that the cords are neatly packed and stored.


Cool comfort

If you've tried travelling without a neck pillow or any type of pillow before, you're definitely missing out on comfort. While it may seem a hassle to carry, pillows allow you to rest easily when your trip starts. So why not go through the simple trouble of carrying it in exchange for something more pleasant? 

Tag it

Bag tags are not only a way to help you identify which one of the many luggage and bags that go out of the conveyor belt is, it also serves as your bag's identification. So if you ever lose your bag, the people who find it will know how to contact you. Make sure that you have one — get one that's cute to boot.

Now if you're the type to stress about the fear of not seeing your luggage, this is the one tip you need: Get a luggage that stands out from the rest. Choose one that has a design that you'll be able to spot from feet away. Perfect for this is the Samsonite Red collection. Aside from having aesthetically pleasing designs, their bags are also created with the modern and fast-paced lifestyles that young people of today live in mind.

Here at Clozette, we are made for and by our lovely Community. From stunning makeup and fashion looks to activities outside the digital world, the core of our relationship with you, our Clozetters, is our love for beauty and style. 

We love marvelling at each others' beauty and fashion photos. But you know what they say: Behind every amazing photo is an ever supportive boyfriend — one who takes countless OOTD photos, one who tirelessly follows us through miles and miles to find that perfect Instagrammable location; you name it!

So just in time for Valentine's Day, we asked six guys what their favourite looks by their fashionista girlfriends are, and their answers are just swoon-worthy. 


Miccolo Solis on Star Clozetter Ruth Jimenez


"Ruth's simplicity really attracts me. I love this look because it shows her natural beauty. She can make me kilig* just by smiling."

David Apiado on Clozette Ambassador Rochelle Abella

"Although you seldom see Rochelle posting photos in a dress, it amazes me how beautiful she can still be while wearing simple outfits. Whether she's in a gown or in a normal [outfit consisting of a pair of] jeans and [a] shirt, Rochelle always pulls it off. So far, this is my favorite look of hers. And that is how she makes my heart skip a beat!"

*Often translated to English as "romantic excitement," kilig can be described as your heart skipping a beat even at just the thought of your special someone. The word can also be used when you feel a warm, fuzzy feeling thinking about your loved one.


James Aw Yong on Clozette Ambassador Maybeline Sim

"I love to see her in lace and bodycons because she is in baggy clothes most of the time!"

Thirdie Gipit on Clozette Ambassador Jean Dalida 

"This picture of her defines her colorful personality and shows who she really is — a simple yet gorgeous woman. And for me, she shines the most when she's simply being herself."


Gabe Dandan on Clozette Ambassador Chesca De Mesa

"I love it when she wears black tops because it shows off her really cute face and her pretty eyes. [Plus,] it emphasizes her facial expressions, so it really comes out when she smiles. I also love it when she wears any kind of denim, especially shorts. This is my favorite look on her because it's simple and pretty just like her."

Sky Tan Xin Hua on Clozette Ambassador Christy Ho

"She’s a wardrobe chameleon. A Fashionista. To be honest, when I first heard about this 'BF's favourite look' article, I was like 'Oh snap! It’s gonna be a tough one.' Why? Because to me she looks good in every outfit. 

Some would say she has a well-shaped body. Some would argue that she has a very good sense of [style] so she knows how to bring out her most flattering looks. But to me, [what sets her apart] has to be her confidence — the confidence she exudes in whatever she wears actually helps to bring out the best in her and whatever she wears. 

It’s all about the whole package of 'look good, feel good.' And she definitely has it all. So the reason why I specifically picked this outfit is because it’s the first time she was sashaying downtown in a sports bra. Definitely not a usual kind of outfit someone would wear on a date, especially in our Asian culture. But she’s willing to take the leap of faith, in the name of fashion, to try this style out. Fashion-forward much? She really did well in fusing the sporty style and made things look really presentable. 

That’s what I really love about her. [She has] a spontaneous attitude and is always looking to challenge new grounds."


Planning to coordinate your outfit with your man for date night? Here are our top styling tips you should definitely take note of!



The joy of being in love is in the idea of having someone to share our lives with. But sometimes, we take having a better half literally and manifest it in the form of matching OOTDs. Don't get us wrong, though, we're not here to judge! We actually applaud the boyfies and hubbies who confidently match clothes with their girls coolly. 

Now, there's no need to wear exact matching pieces all the time. Keep on reading to see our top tips on wearing coordinated outfits with your beau without going too overboard.


Think about your colours

Wearing coordinated outfits does not necessarily mean going for the same colours. One way to get the matchy-matchy feel minus the colour coordination is by playing with contrasting or complementing shades instead.

When in doubt, go basic

Just like you and your S.O., black and white simply work wonders together. So if you're on the lookout for a sleek and chic casual couple wear, never forget 'monochrome magic'. 


Variation is key

Found a pattern, texture, or style of clothing you want to sport with your man? Don't settle for a full-on match; try to stay true to your style and sport the piece in different ways instead.

Just own it

As time passes by, our minds have a way of being in sync with our significant other's unintentionally — and we don't just mean in style. Whether it be gestures, habits, or expressions, investing your time in a relationship with someone makes it inevitable to pick up certain mannerisms to the point that you mirror each other's movements without even noticing. So if you do end up sporting an unplanned matching outfit, we're sure that just like anything else in your relationship, you can rock it together!


Don't know where to go with your S.O.? Here are some simple yet worthwhile date ideas.
