Shopping becomes easier than ever with these on-trend finds.
Shopping in 2019 feels like, as today’s kids would say, “a lot”.
How do you pick trends to buy into? How do you know which pieces to invest in?
Truth is: in malls, we’ve welcomed the non-stop influx of high street brands and luxury labels from abroad; there’s the ubiquity of Instagram resellers peddling (otherwise unavailable) off-shore goods at ridiculous prices, not to mention, those three simple words that, put together, are guaranteed to make any buyer’s heart skip a beat: say it with me, “free global shipping”.
As a consummate shopper, having everything you could ever want just a P2P (or a click) away is definitely something to celebrate, but for some, it can also be a little overwhelming.
Good news is, at The Ayala Malls Stylist’s Closet, you no longer have to worry about what’s hot or what’s not.
Celebrity stylist Pam Quiñones, together with her styling company Qurator, came up with a sharp, shoppable edit featuring pieces curated from retail brands within every Ayala Mall.
It’s a pop-up space where you can browse, fit and shop on the spot, any time you want. Taking our Q’s from Pam’s chosen trends, Pasyal.com.ph goes further with this seasonal editorial. Let’s get shopping, shall we?
We start off with Expressive: the clash of graphic prints mixed-in with bold, “pop-of-color hues” is an easy way to re-assert your personal style.
