Beyond its growing wellness culture, athletic wear is one of the fastest-growing fashion trends this 2020 in the Philippines.

If there’s one thing that everyone has in common these days, it’s oversized clothing! Sizing up is the new fad. Everyone is sporting this trend.

It is chic, trendy, and most of all, comfortable! Who wouldn’t want to go about their day-to-day with a comfortable fit and soft coziness?
While mobile phones get chunkier, shoes get thicker, and clothing gets larger, the everyday bags appear to be getting smaller. Everyone seems to be pairing a mini bag from SM Shoes and Bags with their outfits! But despite their size, it makes such a statement accessory for everyday wear. It is classy and also challenges you to bring only the essentials.
These days, no one is holding back with accessories. Barrettes and hairclips are blowing up right now and it may be a blast from the past for some.

The Comeback of Lip Gloss
High-shine, glowing, and dewy, lip gloss is definitely a staple in all things beauty right now. Lip gloss is highly versatile. It finishes any kind of look – full glam or the no-make-up makeup trend. It’s the simplest way to instantly pump up your lips! You might be worried about your hair sticking to your lips, but the latest formulas come in non-sticky and clean glazes.
Everyone’s been loving Heart Evangelista’s collaboration with Happy Skin. It features two glosses, Missy (mauve) and A Moment (a natural soft pink) that leaves a natural “my lips but better” glow on the lips, without the sticky feeling. It also refreshes the lips with a special cooling natural mint extract!
The trend of chunky shoes from sneakers to sandals aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. There is something about the chunky kick and thick-soled shoes from Nike, Adidas, and New Balance that everyone appears to be loving.
