EXCLUSIVE: Stylist Jan Aranilla Shares How She Prepared Kathryn Bernardo's Travel Outfits In Morocco!
Kathryn Bernardo's recently concluded Morocco trip is seriously #travelgoals.
But aside from the picturesque places she and her beau Daniel Padilla went to, another thing worth noticing—or rather, coveting!—is her wardrobe. From basic essentials to romantic pieces, the Metro Magazine cover girl donned ultra chic outfits worth pinning to our style inspiration moodboards—and for these, she has celebrity stylist Jan Aranilla to thank.
The 23-year-old actress hired the stylist to come up with her Morocco travel OOTDs, and the results were definitely Instagram-worthy. For jet-setter women with hectic schedules, hiring someone to plan your travel OOTDs is practical and less time consuming—a few months ago, Julia Barretto also hired a fashion expert for her South America adventure!
In an exclusive interview with Metro.Style, Jan shares the low-down on her collaboration with Kathryn. For your fashion fix, scroll ahead!
Describe Kathryn's personal style.
"It’s always exciting to dress up Kathryn because she’s not afraid to try new things. She likes fun and edgy pieces, but would always throw in something classic to balance a look. Comfort is also a very big factor—it's important that she’s comfortable in whatever she’s wearing."
How long did you prepare for Kathryn's outfits?
"I was asked to prepare her outfits for Morocco 2 weeks prior to the trip. I had ample time to do my research and brainstorm with her. She’s very involved in preparing—Kathryn sent me pegs and colors to consider, but would always let me throw in a bit of my aesthetic. It truly is a collaboration between her style and mine."
How many looks did you come up with?
"I prepared a total of 10 looks for the trip—accessories, shoes, and bags included. We were also able to squeeze in one fitting despite her very busy schedule."
How were her outfits packed?
"Kathryn is very organized! We always prepare one garment bag for every outfit, which makes it so much easier when travelling. We also decide when to wear what outfit before she leaves."
What are your tips for Metro women preparing their outfits for a big trip?
"When preparing for travel outfits, always consider comfort—but of course, never compromising style. Prepare ahead of time to make sure every outfit is complete. It's also always better to pack the whole outfit together in one bag—a zip lock or a garment bag will work. Finally, make sure to bring your basics with you—they always come in handy."
