#MetroStyleWatch: Girlbosses in Manila

This week's roster of best dressed ladies are not to be messed with—they're serious with their careers as they are with their style, and managing to look this good while tackling the daily grind is no easy feat. We at Metro.Style keep our eyes peeled for the most fashionable ladies this side of town, but we also love a woman who's determined, driven, with a sassy attitude to boot! If there's one thing we can learn from these #inspo-worthy women, it's that you can work pretty damn hard and look undeniably amazing while you're at it! Scroll down to see who we're loving right now!

Karen Davila, News Anchor/TV Personality

Household name Karen Davila is a force to be reckoned with. She's known for her strong TV personality and her fearless pursuit of the truth in the news. While we're enamored by all this, we can't help but take notice of her fabulous daily ensembles. In this post, we're loving the Nina Corpuz for Inabel blazer over a basic black dress!

Joyce Makitalo, Jewelry Designer

Joyce's eclectic sense of style is not bothered by ever-changing trends, but instead, she goes for her authentic personal style that effortlessly combines unassuming pieces with her statement jewelry. Here she pairs a classic wrap dress with an equally classy Chanel bag and layered necklaces. Oooh and that berry lip does wonders for her too!


TC Alvarez Sibal, Fashion Designer/Entrepreneur

Fashion Designer TC perfects the print on print trend by combining mismatched florals, finished off with a power platform shoe. Such a chic way to attack a work day, don't you agree?

Vania Romoff, Fashion Designer

Vania does basic cool the way she always does—by going for pieces that withstand trends and look good on her no matter what day of the week it is. The takeaway? Invest in classic pieces you can mix and match for years to come.

Isabelle Daza, Actress/Entrepreneur

A style icon in the making, Isabelle Daza serves us with yet another trend that's soon to be hot in Manila—minimalist hair accessories that speak volumes in terms of style. She pairs this perfectly with off-the-moment houndstooth to create that signature girlboss look she does best.

Mich Araullo, Fashion Designer/Entrepreneur

Local fashion maven Mich Araullo may be known for her feminine pieces, but this power woman knows a thing or two about elevating otherwise basic pieces: By going for a monochromatic palette that's flattering at every turn. She dons a pair of chunky black shades and loafers to finish off this candid-crossing-the-street shot!

Sara Black, Photographer

The ray of sunshine that is Sara Black always knows how to turn a gloomy day around. Here she is in her element, rocking a classic beach babe look in crisp whites, tattered denim shorts, a straw hat, and must-have aviator shades! The best accessory? A smile!

Janina Dizon, Jewelry Designer

Another power woman, Janina Dizon keeps the hustle interesting on the style front with textured whites to complement the edgy jewelry she designs. We love how that red lip and sleek hair makes this shot a perfectly frameable one, and one to copy for sure!
