Rachel Zoe once said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
True to that statement, these fashion bloggers’ style speaks for themselves. But have you ever wondered what they had to say about their personal fashion style? These Filipina female fashion bloggers’ personal fashion personas have often been admired, discussed, deciphered, and written about many times before. Finally, hear about it straight from them as they talk about and describe their own personal style below!
For entrepreneurs seeking to promote their brand, these fashion bloggers are the people to contact. They have a legion of fans and followers on social media. Their personal and relatable way of featuring products make for an effective way of promotion.
Aspiring fashionistas could also draw inspiration from these well-established fashion ambassadors. Those bitten by the travel bug may live vicariously through them—sometimes, the most beautiful scenic spots serve as backdrops for their OOTDs.
If you’re the type of person who wants to maximize opportunities in pursuit of your passion, you could learn a thing or two from these fashion bloggers who have used the Internet and their passion for fashion to propel themselves into the Filipino style ambassadors they are today.
So without further ado, here is our list of the 10 female fashion bloggers in the Philippines!
10.) Lissa Kahayon
“My personal style is versatile, unpredictable, and moody. I love experimenting while I’m still at age that allows me to do so.”
Starting off our list is a blogger who has a beautiful smile and the ultimate peg for many women’s fashion and fitspiration dreams! Lissa Kahayon brought fitness to a whole new level, even posting her workout videos on Instagram. With her dedication to fitness, it’s no wonder the clothes she wears look good on her.
@lissakahayon has 30,873 followers on Instagram.
9.) Vern Enciso and Verniece Enciso
Vern and Verniece are usually spotted together at big events around the metro, and who are we to split them up? Tied at number nine are the elegant Enciso sisters. Vern and Verniece show their readers how awesome it is to enjoy work and play, all with a sibling! Though they get invited to events together, feature similar items, and even share a blog, they have distinctly different styles.
“I can’t pinpoint a specific personal style but I love pieces that are structured and classic. I may play around with trends but the look must always look timeless.”
It’s fun to read Vern’s adventures because of how open she is to her readers. It feels like reading a story about a friend. She talks about relationships, style tips, her adventures and misadventures, her feelings for the day, and many more. She even asks her readers what to blog about next.
@vernenciso has 45, 589 followers on Instagram.
“My personal style will always be girly, youthful and fresh.”
Apart from her outfit inspiration, Verniece also writes about how-to’s in food and fashion. She even reviews movies and TV series that she is into. Verniece juggles work with being a student, so her back-to-school OOTDs and her posts about school and cherishing the vacation are especially relatable among students.
@verniecenciso has 65, 365 followers on Instagram.
8.) Patricia Prieto
“My style is sort of a bold yet laid back sort of thing. I like putting together feminine and polished items together with edgy pieces. I also like making sure that I buy things I can wear again and again with different outfits!”
Patricia Prieto’s blog and social media accounts are a constant feed of adventure, and interesting but wearable OOTDs. Of course, the clothes look extra good on her because of her modelesque figure. During the recently concluded Entrepreneur Success Summit where Patricia was one of the panelists, she shared about how so much goes on behind the glamor of being a fashion blogger, like the sleepless nights answering emails, among many others. It was a reminder to all attendees about how hard work is absolutely essential, even in a seemingly glamorous industry such as fashion. From the talk and the Q&A portion, it was clear that Patricia Prieto is a woman of style and substance.

7.) Nicole Andersson
“I guess I would have to say that my personal style is very girly while being laid back. Definitely influenced by my years spent in California.”
“Actress turned International Marketing Graduate ~ Blogger, Host & World traveler hoping to one day advocate environmental awareness & education.”
This is how Nicole described herself in her Twitter bio, and in a span of 20 words, you’ll see she’s so much more than a gorgeous fashion blogger. Nicole quit showbiz to study abroad, and now that she’s back in the Philippines again, she has been turning heads with her good looks and her style.

6.) Dani Barretto
“My style is relatable to all my young readers. I want them to feel that fashion is all about expressing themselves and that they don’t have to be afraid to show it to people.”
Dani Barretto comes from a famous family, but she refuses to settle for simply being acquainted with other famous relatives. She has made a name for herself through fashion blogging and has gained a number of followers in a relatively short amount of time! Dani juggles fashion blogging along with her responsibilities as a student. In one blog post, she shared how she commutes to school and therefore prefers non-fashown outfits and enjoys donning a pair of flats to school.
@danibarretto has 133, 351 on Instagram.
5.) Tricia Gosingtian
“My personal style changes according to mood, but I’m good with even the simplest clothes as long as they’re comfortable and they make me feel good about myself.”
Tricia Gosingtian is perfect both in front and behind the camera. She has worked as photographer for various shoots in magazines, and has also been featured as a model and as a fashionista. Tricia took up Fine Arts and majored in Information Design, and aims “to spread more of her creativity throughout Asia and the rest of the world.” Though that sounds like a huge dream, Tricia seems to be the perfect girl to achieve that. After all, she is the first Filipino and the first person from Asia to make it to the Top 10 in the history of Lookbook.nu.
@tgosingtian has 172, 553 Instagram.
4.) Kim Jones
“I never really know what to say when describing my style but I do love to have fun and experiment, especially with colours and prints. I guess my style aesthetic is classic and polished. The women who I look up to in terms of style are very effortless but sophisticated. I love to be feminine at times choosing full skirts and floral prints and other times, I like to be a bit more masculine, keeping it clean and tailored.”
Kim Jones has achieved a lot of milestones since she moved to the Philippines in 2012. This month, she graces the Women’s Health. She has become a brand ambassador for a number of brands both local and international, and has been named “The New Girl” for Preview Magazine’s relaunch, and chosen as the Fashion Muse for the Suiteblanco High Summer Collection. Kim also co-hosts the show “Etcetera” on ETC. Her photos have an ethereal quality to them, and she has a distinctly deep way of writing.

3.) Camille Co
“I don’t like getting boxed in or stereotyped–and that includes my style. This is why I try to be as versatile as possible, mixing things up every now and then while still maintaining a sophisticated flair in all of my looks.”
Camille Co has a mark of excellence that transcends to the many aspects of being a fashion blogger. You’ll see this quality of excellence when you check out her blog: the polished layout, the quality of her photos, and even the props she uses when taking photos of her OOTDs! Camille has been featured in many magazines and websites all over the world, and has worked with huge labels, both local and international.
@itscamilleco has 262, 236 followers on Instagram.
2.) Kryz Uy
“It shifts every now and then with my mood and the weather, but overall, I like to keep it youthful yet sophisticated.”
Kyrz is naturally beautiful (an obvious understatement when you see her selfies and OOTDs!), but she’s definitely more than a pretty face. Kryz graduated with honors from Ateneo de Manila University. She also studied in Mod’Art International, Paris, and at the School of Fashion and the Arts, Manila. She also knows Basic French and ballet.
Interestingly enough, she started her blog writing about “random things she thought would make people laugh.” And while her OOTDs are perfectly beautiful and polished, Kryz shares funny stories about her adventures that will make you like her even more. Kryz is the type of person you won’t get tired of following because she doesn’t only have a great sense of style; she also has a great sense of humor.
@kryzzzie has 280, 995 followers on Instagram
1.) Laureen Uy
“My style is very experimental, but now that I’m getting a bit older (just a bit haha), I find my style edgy chic.”
Laureen Uy has almost half a million Instagram followers! And for a good reason. Her feed is full of creative shots of travel destinations, OOTDs, food, and her everyday adventures. Aside from all the creative shots, Laureen allows you to see a funnier and more candid side of her, endearing her even more to her loyal fans and followers.
Despite her success, Laureen remains very approachable—both online and offline. Online, she interacts well with her followers. (She even reposts her followers’ artworks!) Offline, she is just as approachable and endearing. It’s hard to believe how relatable she is despite how successful she has become. And maybe, her humility could have contributed to her continuously growing success and fan base.
@laureenmuy has 496, 682 followers on Instagram.
These ladies are recognized as fashion ambassadors. But the things we could learn from them extend way beyond fashion.
Many of us have big dreams we keep on pushing to a later date. We plan meticulously, overthink, create endless back-up plans. Eventually, some get caught up with pressing concerns of the moment. This goes on, until we never take the first step in pursuing that big dream.
But these bloggers wouldn’t be where they are now, had they stuck to dreaming and planning. Instead they started a blog, and were consistent with it.
Inspirational entrepreneur and photographer James Clear said, “If you’re working on something important, then you’ll never feel ready. A side effect of doing challenging work is that you’re pulled by excitement and pushed by confusion at the same time.”
Much about life is trial and error, so we should begin before we feel ready. How about you? What’s that big dream you have yet to pursue? A Chinese proverbs said, “The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”
Time to start your fashion blogging dreams!
