Emily (Lily Collins), confronting the famous French fashion designer Pierre Cadault (Jean-Christophe Bouvet) after he calls her ‘basic,’ says, “Without basic b–– like me, you wouldn’t be fashionable.” While we admire Emily’s looks, we are anything but basic. Inspired by Emily’s cross-continental style, bring out your inner fashionista with the vibrant Paraiso Palazzo ensemble from homegrown brand Jeanjacquet. Emily’s Eiffel Tower bag chain is cute, but the Jeepney tote from Zarah Juan is next level.

“Paris seems like such a big city,” says Camille (Camille Razat), “but it’s really just a small town.” So is Manila. For those who go for the effortlessly chic Camille-esque look, we suggest pairing the Mira mini dress from Jill Lao, as seen on local, effortlessly chic fashion icon Heart Evangelista, with the Dorothy heels from Strut. Talk about exuding that stylish, je nais sais quoi vibe.
