We're styling our light coats, jackets, and blazers differently like Jomer!

Take this as a sign to explore the concept of rewearing! We're styling our outerwear pieces differently with the guidance of Metro's third Style Me Now winner Jomer Arañas

When it comes to layering and maximizing your statement pieces, its important to first build the base of your look with your favorites before you explore on adding more clothing or accessories into your look. Jomer swears by his three style essentials to solidify his outfit for the day: "a pair of black jeans, coat/blazer, and a pair of white trainers would definitely be my go-to."


He's also fond of classic, comfortable, and casual fashion pieces but just like his style icon, he has a heart for trying out extraordinary prints and hues for fun. Deeply inspired by Asia's hailed Soul Supreme, Jomer is in awe of Filipina singer and rapper KZ Tandingan's distinct sense of style. "I've seen her wear big blazers, oversized shirts, platform boots, and statement jewelry, despite being petite, it always looks hip and stylish on her," says Jomer.

"One of my style goals is to experiment more with colors and prints as I'd always go for solid- colored shirts and jackets. I would also like to dive into the Harajuku way of styling, a Japanese sub-style of dressing up beyond the norm, something unusual, and definitely over the top," says Jomer. Check out the gallery down below to see how he slowly incorporates harajuku into his wardrobe and how he explores on printed statement outerwear pieces for his everyday looks during quarantine!
