Birkenstock Boston Clogs

Birkenstock Boston Natural Leather Oiled Brown

“I didn’t like them at first glance, but after seeing all of these Pinterest girls who could pull them off, I decided to snag a pair of the Birkenstock Boston Clogs. While they make my laziest outfits look laid-back and casually cool, what I love most about them is their comfort. After a week of events and office days, I’m literally just looking forward to the moment I can slip into them.” – Precy Tan, Beauty Writer

Jennie X Gentle Monster’s collab JENTLE SALON


“The it-girls’ favorite eyewear brand highkey are with this one. What I like most about the e collection is the charms that come with it, opening the doors for endless customization and creativity.” – Raf Bautista, Managing Editor

Midi/Maxi Skirts

“If there’s anything fashion-related that I’ve been obsessed with, it’s midi and maxi skirts. I mean, you can never go wrong with a cute skirt, whether it’s for day or night. There are tons of adorable vintage ones from IG shops with one-of-a-kind designs! (My recos: @shopflorice and @alasdos____store on IG)” – Shane Sy, Social Media Associate

New Balance 327s

The New Balance 327s worn

“No breaking in required with the New Balance 327s (I got mine in White Beige). I walked like thousands of steps the first day I got them, and I had zero regrets. Apparently one of SEVENTEEN Wonwoo’s go-to shoe, they’re immediately comfortable while still being stylish and unique. The 327s are chunky but elegant, and modern chic with a retro feel.” – Nica Glorioso, Features Writer

Puma Palermos 

Puma Palermos in the light pink colorway

“The perfect on-the-go, classic footwear! It spices up any outfit and gets bonus points for its comfortability even after long miles of walking. This colorway specifically (light purple) is unique, cute, and a perfect summer shoe.” – Gelo Quijencio, Multimedia Artist

United Nude Jimmy Mid Boots

United Nude Jimmy Mid Boots

“I mean look at the boots! Who wouldn’t want to strut these boots this coming Pride Month! I always love a pop of color and element of surprise in what I wear to make a statement. This Jimmy Mid is a unisex ankle boot with a square toe, tumbled or engraved leather upper, and a bold logo block. Whether you’re in the office or at an event where you’re required to slay, their variety of colors will always deliver!

UNIQLO Tiered Skirt

Uniqlo Cotton Tiered Skirt in White, worn

“I’m a very functional fashion girlie, so any piece that you can easily get around in, and you can pair and style with different outfits I’m super for. I love multi-use pieces.” – Bianca Lao, Brand Associate

YOHAN Fiore Button Down

“It’s the perfect shirt that can transition from summer to the rainy season, from the beach to the club, from casual wear to an evening dinner. Also, what I love about it is the perfect mix of sheer and solid patterns that remind you of a barong but don’t leave you completely bare. You won’t even need to wear a tank top or a t-shirt underneath.” – Andre Chang, Fashion and Creative Director
