How to Recreate 6 Memorable Outfits from Pinoy Movies

We love watching film–not just for their entertainment value but also for dozens of outfit inspirations that we can mine from the characters. Need outfit ideas for the coming workweek? Take your cue from these six contemporary Pinoy flicks!

1. No Other Woman

Who can forget the scene when Christine Reyes first laid eyes on Anne Curtis–her husband’s mistress (on a lighter note, this scene has also been dubbed as the “Barney party”)? We totally love the rich purple hues that make anyone just look absolutely regal. Instead of donning the same color as your arch-enemy, why don’t you try twinning with your bestie?

2. A Very Special Love

Laida Magtalas, played by Sarah Geronimo, is one very special gal. Her look–short hair tied in pigtails, the cardigan and skirt combo, and flat sandals–appeal to the eccentric Pinay. It’s definitely practical and easy to recreate.

For the third installment of the hit A Very Special Love, Laida Magtalas returns to the country with her hair still cut short, but a dash fiercer–which is also reflected in her office-appropriate outfits.

Angel Locsin’s character, Grace, has a laid-back style that gives a dash of escapist charm. Cop her look the next time you have an out-of-town trip.

Bea Alonzo’s character works at a tailoring shop, which explains her classic style (think: sleek lines and tailored outfits). Take the sartorial route whether you’re off to work or out with your best buds.

Mace Castillo, played by Angelica Panganiban, knows how to dress for any weather. Whether it be in the scorching hots streets of the Metro or in the cold weathered Sagada, Mace knows that bringing a cardigan with you is a fashion must. Proof? Her prime outfit lasted throughout most of the story’s timeline.
