#MetroStyleWatch: All The Casual Glam Outfits We Spotted At SweetEscape's Exclusive Anniversary Party!

Happy 1st anniversary to SweetEscape Philippines!

If you enjoy traveling and having your photos taken at Instagrammable spots, you'll definitely love SweetEscape—it's basically like an Airbnb for photography services! Founded in Indonesia in 2016, the app connects you to over 2,000 curated photographers in more than 400 cities around the world. Thanks to their professional services, you can enjoy your family vacations without worrying about the photos!

Recognizing their potential here in our country (you can bet that Filipinos love photoshoot sessions!), SweetEscape landed on Philippine shore in 2018. And in celebration of their first birthday, they held a private media party yesterday, June 25, at Common Grounds in BGC.

Metro.Style, together with celebrities, influencers, and travel enthusiasts, enjoyed an afternoon of good food and great conversations. Get this—we even scored tips on how to take amazing travel photos from SweetEscape CEO David Soong, but that's for another article.

Aside from the wanderlust-inducing program, another thing we loved about yesterday's party was the fashion (of course!). Ahead, we've compiled the most stylish attendees in their casual glam outfits. For your dose of style inspiration, scroll ahead—and don't forget to click 'screencap'!

SweetEscape ambassador Nikki Gil-Albert rocked it in her powersuit. She sported an oversized blazer, layered over a black top and khaki-green shorts—we love the belt accent! She topped off her OOTD with comfy, head-turning sandals. 


Cat Juan-Ledesma

Writter and vlogger Cat Juan-Ledesma is well aware of the power of accessorizing. She styled her coral wrap dress by layering bracelets (beads and tassels galore!) and sporting statement earrings.

Blogger and writer Georgia Schulze - Del Rosario donned an effortlessly chic, monochromatic number. We love the bow details on her feminine, lace top! 


Bianca Santiago-Reinoso

Count on stylist and mom influencer Bianca Santiago-Reinoso to deliver laid-back, classy looks each time. She elevated a casual shirt-and-jeans-ensemble by layering an oversized printed blazer. She also wore necklaces in different lengths to add more dimension. 


Janeena Chan

Vlogger Janeena Chan hosted the intimate program in fun, zebra-printed coordinates! She added touches of orange, gray, and gold through her minimalist accessories.

Check out how writer and blogger Patty Laurel-Filar geared up for the rainy season! A woman can never have enough stylish jackets in her wardrobe.
