How To Look Chic At A Christmas Family Reunion

Ah, family reunions! They're one of those annual occasions that can easily get stressful because you will be spending an entire day with relatives, talking about everything under the sun, stuffing yourselves with hamon, and finding the right thing to wear. Fret not, for we enlisted the help of celebrity stylist Em Millan who dresses the likes of KC Concepcion, Cheska Kramer, and Angel Locsin. We can't promise to give advice about all the eating and the awkward conversations, though! 
 

1. "'Tis the season to have fun! Go for bold color combinations or even extra sparkly accessories to spell "holidaze." You might see relatives only this one time every year, so make it memorable until next year's reunion!"

Pair a printed top with power earrings for that effortless pizzazz. Since it's getting a bit more chilly, why not rock that sweatshirt you've been dying to wear all year? 

 

2. "Save your micro mini skirts and extra low necklines for date nights or girlfriend cocktails. You can be chic without looking matronly. There's no reason not to stand out in your annual clan photo!"

Try pajama dressing for your family gathering and opt for a pair in a deep Christmasy color like wine red or emerald green. This combo is modest inasmuch as it is stylish and very of-the-moment!
 

3. "Holidays or not, comfort is always key. You will most likely stuff yourself with some buko pandan or porchetta, so keep in mind to rock a pair of garterized trousers in lieu of a cinched-waist dress."
 

 

A roomy slip dress is key this season. Top off with a lightweight coat or a statement biker jacket for an unexpected holiday ensemble!
