We know, we know. The dress code said business attire, and it took on, well, different interpretations. Many still wore a terno, which strictly falls under the formal category. But keeping the hemline to knee-length somewhat placed it under the dictated dress code. Besides, when you think about the occasion and the venue, a terno definitely didn’t look out of place especially when the men were in barong.
Besides, these ternos and the other looks don’t get points just for style. They embody what we always look for in fashion, formal or not: chic, functional and preferably we can re-wear.
Definitely law abiding in the world of fashion, this chic all-white number is smart and perfect for business formals and appropriate even for an evening event: just add accessories to switch it up. The look is classy, effortless, and timeless.
We couldn't resist adding Heart again for this look. It’s all about subtle elegance for this gorgeous white Ivarluski Aseron number. We love how the lace details give off a romantic vibe to this Filipiniana-themed dress.
Let your dress do the talking by keeping the rest of your look, from hair to makeup to accessories, clean and polished.

Give your structured tops a break, and opt for something like a stylish bow blouse paired with a pencil skirt for business attire requirements.

Opting for separates is a practical and fun way to dress up for formals—you instantly get an option to mix and match.
Whatever the occasion, the best dress is the one where the silhouette and length of the dress flatters your body type and height, just like Jinkee here. And this color looks amazing on her.
