This is the time when our Instagram feeds are turned into news reports of hot vacation spots around the world as celebrities pack their bags and go on the ultimate holiday vacay we wish we’re having, too. These celebs made no excuse and dressed the part: Their vacation outfits are on point!
So say no to a traveler’s usual rotating basics like sweatshirts, leggings and pajama pants, which are admittedly cozy but sadly, do not evoke any sense of glamour. And don’t make baggage allowance an excuse.
It’s time to pack your statement pieces on your next destination just like they did! Here, our stylish jetsetting stars from around the globe help you give your wardrobe a chic fix, especially with the new year just two days from now.

Flying from Manila to London and now on a road trip to Argentina, Georgina Wilson knows that extra-cozy turtleneck knits is the easiest way to nail a chilly weather look (just throw on one and you are done). There is no reason to play it safe. Try different styling variations of the chunky knit sweater like cinching in the waist for figure-enhancing results, jazzing it up with a sleeveless blazer, or even layering a crisp collared shirt underneath it to elevate your knitwear game for additional impact.
‘Tis the season to unwind with loved ones. With silly jump shots at Salar de Talar, romantic wine picnics overlooking the serene Laguna Altiplanica, and stargazing under the Atacama Desert’s dreamy night sky, don’t even deny that Anne Curtis and beau Erwan Heusaff aren’t giving you major relationship goals. Seems like Anne is embracing the desert life by playing around with basics like festive sweaters, v-necks, and tank tops without looking like she tried too hard.

Slip into something classic (yet still current) like this camel collar leather belted jacket worn by Bianca Manalo as she toured around Tokyo Disney Sea. On winter days, when the temperature clocks at two degrees Celsius, the only possible way to leave the cocoon (a.k.a the bed)and go to a theme park is to bundle up in a samurai-inspired option that cinches at the waist in a snap.
December in Australia is one of the best times to get outdoors and enjoy the clear blue skies and sunny rays. Walking along spectacular coastal views of the Manly Beach, Mari Jasmine, who’s back in her hometown to celebrate the Christmas holidays, shares the recipe for cool girl summer style: a classic fedora, a bikini top, and a flowy skirt. It’s a low-maintenance look when you’re busy going on adventures and leaving your woes behind.

After spotting Neighbors’ Halston Sage at Saks Fifth Avenue, the Barretto sisters headed to the Four Seasons Hotel to celebrate Christmas day with family. We might find it tempting to splurge on fluffy coats and scarves, but if you just take summer wardrobe basics (think plaid polos, chambray blouses, and cashmere cardigans just like the Barretto’s) and layer them up, you need not spend another penny on winter ensembles.

MMFF’s Best Supporting Actress awardee Maine Mendoza knows how to properly sport an athleisure look with a mid-thigh, down parka over a monogrammed cotton sweat dress on her third day in Tokyo. With puffer coats, going oversized is king. Even if it gets a little bit heavy, searching for a coat that will actually guarantee you with the necessary warmth for your morning commute or sightseeing is worth it.

Stomping around the grounds of Osaka with her fellow Uy siblings, Laureen’s latest looks are giving us major cold weather-outfit envy. With her varied types of coats, white kicks, and eye-catching printed socks, she sure is ready to take on winter dressing a notch higher. Ditch the frumpy marshmallow-look by trying on different types of silhouettes like cocooned, cropped, vested, and robed for your outerwear.
Come winter, it’s so easy to get lost in a sea of grays, blacks, and blues. But Bea Soriano-Dee says no to blending in with her multicolored luxe faux fur coat. Granted, it is not the warmest or most practical type of coat when the temperature goes down to negative degrees, but it’s street-style gold when paired with casual sneakers and ripped jeans.

Layovers don’t necessarily mean countless hours of watching the clock. Sisters Toni Soriano and Alex Gonzaga made good use of the time in Incheon International Airport snapping matchy-matchy photos and checking out several boutiques. Seems like these two have been morphing into one person as they don twinsy tracksuits and Hermès bags en route to New York—so adorable!
