Get dressed for all your holiday Zoom parties with these fabulous and festive designer tops.

And just like that, it’s Christmastime once again. This time last year, you were probably picking out your outfits for the oncoming slew of holiday parties; but this year is obviously different.

Most reunions and get-togethers this season will be relocated to the internet, but that’s not a reason to join your family’s mega Zoom call in your ratty pambahay. And for those who will get tests and carefully coordinate their in-person gatherings, it’s all the more reason to dress up.

To get ahead of your inevitable panic when you realize these things two days away from Christmas, we’ve done some of the legwork for you. Here are some chic and festive tops from Filipino designers for those video call parties — plus some accessories if you’re seeing people in person.


Order Ha.Mu via @_ha.mu_ on Instagram. Visit Commonwealth at Greenbelt 5.

If your idea of being dressed up always involves a button-up shirt, this is for you. The All-Seam-Ruffled Shirt from design duo Ha.Mu takes the classic polo and amps it up to party level. Add a pair of Commonwealth x Adidas Consortium Response CL sneakers for some aesthetic balance and comfort.

Carl Jan Cruz

Order Carl Jan Cruz via Visit Commonwealth at Greenbelt 5.

For maximum comfort, sometimes less is more. This salungso (bra) from Carl Jan Cruz’s Pambahay collection straddles the line between chic home wear and public-appropriate clothing, with the benefit of being ultra comfy.

Plus, this sapin-sapin print is just too delicious and festive to resist. Pair it with a green bucket hat for that extra tropicalia vibe.


Order Randolf via Visit Jewelmer at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Glorietta, Greenbelt, TriNoma, Abreeza, and Ayala Center Cebu.

Want to feel like a neon green goddess for the holidays? Well, Randolf’s Venus Corset gives you all that and more — a ruched bust, orange printed stars, and draped off-shoulder sleeves. You might not be able to eat all the Christmas ham your heart desires, but hey, at least you’ll look smashing.

Dress it up with a pair of fine pearl earrings from Jewelmer for even more sparkle.

Sassa Jimenez

Order Sassa Jimenez via Visit Charles & Keith at Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Glorietta, Greenbelt, TriNoma, Abreeza, Ayala Center Cebu, and Harbor Point.

You can wear this pink tulle top from Sassa Jimenez’s latest collection in many ways, but they all add the same frothy goodness to your outfit. Wear it over an undershirt or as a bolero for a fun cherry on top, or on its own if you’re feeling a little more daring.

If you’re heading out, hop on the tiny bag trend with this little pink pouch from Charles & Keith for even more cuteness.

Salad Day

Order Salad Day via @salad_day on Instagram. Visit Sarabia Optical at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Feliz, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Fairview Terraces, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Market! Market!, TriNoma, Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Ayala Malls Solenad, and The District Imus.

If there was a perfect time to go all-out maximalist, it would be the holidays. Be fun! Cheery! Fabulous! This pink fur-sleeved track jacket from Salad Day is the perfect centerpiece for a totally maxed holiday outfit, whether it’s at home or on screen.

Pair it with a pair of equally fun Mykita sunglasses (the screen gets bright, what about it) for extra fab points.
