Here’s a guide to your Mother’s Day gift-giving

Tessa Prieto Valdes, Sofia Andres, and Kelly Misa

For many fashion-savvy Filipinas, their first introduction to the beauty of clothing is with their mother’s closet. Moms have a special way of dressing their children, even more amazing is how they transformed their style with a sense of practicality. There is subtle elegance in the way some moms compose their looks, but far from being intimidating.
That couldn’t be more true to celebrity moms Sofia Andres, Kelly Misa, and Tessa Prieto Valdes. As mothers, they are devoted to doing everything the best for their kids, but they do it with such great style. In celebrations of Mother’s Day, the three moms shared top fashion must-haves to give you the best gift ideas for the most special women in your life.

Sofia Andres

In her 20s, Sofia has already accomplished what many young girls dream of—a successful acting career, a YouTube channel with hundred-thousands of subscribers, a vibrant network of friends and supporters, and a loving family of her own.
With so many outfit goals seen on her social media, Sofia shares her style essentials that make her most confident. “White or black high-waist pants, a denim jacket, linens, or anything soft and comfy because I’m always on the go,” Sofia shares. “I also put on sneakers. I love a good pair of sneakers! I think confidence starts when you feel comfortable outside and inside.”

Kelly Misa

In her late 30s, Kelly Misa is considered as one of the most recognizable faces in entertainment since the beginning of her career in the early 2000s. She is currently a host, lifestyle blogger, model, endorser, wife, and mother.
One can never go wrong with flattering jeans, comfortable footwear that still gives off a stylish overall look, and a blazer which is the hardest-working out of all pieces in one’s wardrobe–just like Kelly’s fashion preferences!

Tessa Prieto Valdes

In her late 50s, Tessa Prieto Valdes holds a thick book of credentials: she is a socialite, writer, interior designer, and philanthropist who has hosted various events and charity programs. Known for her bubbly personality and colorful outfits, she is a true style icon.
“My first top fashion must have is a dress with any interesting, bold and loud print so I feel the statement piece beaming with confidence,” muses Tessa. “Second is a great pair of heels in any unique color or shade—something that is hard to match so there is a sense of edginess in my style! The third is accessories. For me, these add the finishing touches to any outfit and are my unique style.”
