Karla's Kloset Pegs

By Karla Aguas - 2:59:00 PM

Hi guys! How's everyone been doing? Hope all is well. :)

I've been getting quite a few messages and tweets about fashion and style picks- and a lot are wondering how I can describe my personal style. I really thought about it (since it's such a deep and thought provoking question HAHA) and my honest answer is this: It depends on my mood.

With this crazy weather and unpredictable climate changes- it gets harder and harder to dress accordingly. So what I end up doing is stocking up on breathable basics (materials like jersey/cotton/denims) and I just try to get pieces that I know I can mix and match with my older pieces. This is a great money saver since the basic clothes don't have bold prints and easily recognizable materials that will make outfit repeating very obvious (I LOVE repeating outfits).

So what I decided to do was go on Polyvore (a site I am currently obsessed with) and I made a few outfit pegs for you guys to see how I like to dress and what my style is like. Hopefully this light and fun entry will inspire you to raid your closets or stock up on basics and key pieces. :)





The Perfect Key

I love getting "key pieces" for my closet- these are clothes that I feel make a statement or can act as the accessory to your outfit. What I love most about key pieces is that they can be worn often- as long as you change up the outfit every time and try as much as possible to pair them with basics. These American Flag cut offs are the perfect Summer Key Piece for me since I LOVE SHORTS! I have so many pairs of shorts I can't even count them anymore- and I'm still stocking up! Haha :P





Girly Bits

I'm not the girliest of girls (actually when I was a kid I forced my family to call me "Spike" because I wanted to turn into a boy HAHA) but I really do think every girl should invest in a few girly pieces for their closet. I personally love crochet anything- it gives such a light and hippie vibe to any outfit. I also am a big fan of skater skirts- I think these skirts are perfect for accentuating a woman's waist as well as making their legs look longer. If you can stock up on some pastel colors as well that's great- pastels for me can be worn all throughout the year and not just for summer so you definitely save more and still are able to add splashes of color to your closet.




Dress Me Up

I am a self-confessed non girly-girl but I do enjoy my fair share of cute dresses. I love dresses because for me they are so easy to use and so easy to pair up. What I like doing with a typical girly dress is I use sneakers (my dirty black Converse) or I use them with boots. That way, you're taking the girly dress look to a whole new level. Dresses are great as well because if you accessorize them right- they can be both for night and day. Just put on a blazer for a more formal look or a denim jacket for a day time look. Dresses are super versatile and I recommend buying a few basic colored ones and some fun printed ones too! :)

It's in the Jeans

As much as I love my pair of short shorts (my Mom calls them pantie shorts but they're not THAT short naman Haha :P) I also am I lover of a good pair of jeans. I think jeans are a staple in everyone's closet simply because they are probably THE most versatile piece of clothing one can own. I love the jeans from Topshop, ZARA, H&M and MANGO- if you're looking for the perfect pair of jeans I suggest checking those brands out. They really do specialize in denims and they have different cuts to suit every body type. I like pairing jeans with girly tops or with heels for a dressier look. But don't get me wrong- I have my lazy days too. You'll definitely see me in a plain v-neck, jeans and ballet flats at the mall or out running errands. Even if jeans cover you up, denim is considered a very breathable fabric and you'll be alright (just don't wear corduroy pants on a hot day! You'll overheat! And yes, this is based on personal experience HAHA).



Oh Crop!

One of the trends I'm really loving right now are cropped tops. I don't have abs nor do I think my body is "bangin" but I just loooveee the look of a cropped top with a high waist bottom (pants/shorts/skirts). There's something so playful and fresh about cropped tops and I really encourage you all to buy even just for your closet. I have quite a few but I know the ones I'll be using even after this trend is "over" are my basic colored ones- black, white and gray. You can check out Forever 21 and Topshop for these cute little tops (those are the stores where I get mine).

Sneaks, Neons, Camo and Woofs

I couldn't think of a witty title to describe all the elements in this next look but let me break them down for you: I really think that all girls should have a pair of wedge sneakers in their closets. I have a pair of all black ones and I honestly wear them with almost everything! They're as comfy as regular sneakers and they give you that extra boost of confidence with the hidden heel inside! For a shorty like me (I'm 5"5), this is a BIG PLUS! Next is the NEON color palette. Ever since I can remember, buying school supplies was my ultimate favorite thing to do before the school year would start. Having said this, my most favorite school supply to buy were always my rainbow collection of highlighters (which I would lose by the end of the school year #fail). I guess my love for highlighters spilled on over to my taste in clothes because I really think that having a few neon pieces just adds the fun to your daily looks and wardrobe. So whether it be a bag, shoes, necklaces or bracelets- I think neon has become a basic like the usual black and white.

My FAVE camo jacket from Topshop (I'm wearing shorts I promise! Haha)
As a kid, I enjoyed playing with G.I. Joes instead of Barbies. Don't get me wrong- I love Barbie. She's a fantastic woman with a hot husband and killer legs. But there was always just something about soldiers and their clothes that really attracted me as a kid. So when the Camo trend came back I made sure to whip out my camo clothes and wear them again proudly. I love how even though camo is a print, it can go with almost anything. I guess that's why soldiers wear them.. not for cover/disguise but cause it goes with everything! Mud/rain/blood... keri lang! Haha and lastly, anything and everything with an animal on it. I looove animal prints- I have a lot of pieces in my closet that have animal print. There's just something fun and light about wearing animal print as well as clothes with even an actual animal on it. I have a shirt from H&M from my Bubba that has the most beautiful white tiger on it (I promise to show a picture soon or wear it on an episode in MYX) and every time I look at it it makes me happy. I think clothes with some form of animal print/design can really spice up an outfit and make you stand out more. :)

These are my FAVORITE brown boots. See the animal print detail? So cute and it surprisingly goes with everything! :)
So there you have it. Hope you enjoyed this light and fun entry. I promise to post pictures of my actual clothes and maybe a few outfit shots soon (I really don't think I'm fashionable enough though HAHA) so I hope you come back for that.

What's your CLOSET MUST-HAVE? :)

    1. Hi Romelyn! Get a cropped top that isn't too short if you want to hide certain areas of your body but still wear the piece. Opt for "longer" cropped tops and higher waisted bottoms :)

  13. Hello Ate Karla! First of all I love your style. You are my style-spiration! :D I am so happy that you are now a Myx VJ, and I think that Myx is also very lucky to have you as a VJ 'cause you do such a darn good job at being one. Wala kameng Myx sa TV namin eh kaya I can't watch you but when I staying at my aunt's house,my friend texted me that Myx Versions was on and you were the Vj so I instantly switched the channel to Myx just to watch you. And you were awesome!! When I went back home na, I really wanted to watch you on Daily Top 10 so I tried to look for a video online pero wala eh. A week later at 1 in the morning (because I couldn't sleep) I was scrolling through channels and voila! There was a replay of your episode on Daily Top 10!! I was so happy!!!! You were so funny, charismatic, and as usual you looked gorge!! I feel like a creeper :(( :)) But please don't be freaked out by me! I just love you so much and I just look up to you. You are not only beautiful on the outside, you are also smart and nice!! Kayo na!! I hope you get to read this and I hope you reply to this!! God bless ate :)

  14. Nagiging suki na ata ako ng comment box mo. Hahaha. I've been reading again your old post and now I like to put some comments na kasi I want you to know how inspired I am in your posts. (echusera, pero trulalu.Hahaha) Anyway, I also think that every girl should have these in their closet. :) BTW, if you don't mind. Your wedge sneakers brand? Is it a black sketchers?

    and I think it would be very nice if you could post some OOTD or tips/picks/review or anything about fashion. :) Kahit minsan lang. Hahaha. That would be cool. :) (that's my suggestion) :)) xoxo.
