Fashion as Self-Expression: Belle Mariano Shares Styling Tips

Belle Mariano and global e-retailer SHEIN present a summer-ready capsule collection



Global e-retail SHEIN unveils the first celebrity capsule collection in the Philippines with their first Filipina Brand Ambassador Belle Mariano. The multi-hyphenate curates pieces that range from feminine matching sets to pastel-colored dresses inspired by “that free-spirited feeling of summer.”



On the creative process behind the #SHEINxBelleMariano capsule collection, Belle reveals that it was a collaborative effort from her team and her SHEIN family. During the launch event at Seltsam in Makati last February 8, she reveals, “Honestly, I wouldn’t have done this alone…It really was a collaborative [effort from] my team and my SHEIN family as well. We’re really very hands on…I’m so grateful and so honored to be part of this. It truly is such a big deal for me. I’ve always admired SHEIN as a global brand; to be able to represent [the Philippines], I’m out of words.”



The style maven dishes foolproof tips for everyday dressing—mixing things up. “I’m a person who likes classic outfits, but I add a twist. I like exploring different colors, different patterns or layering, you know. Tweaking a bit of my outfit para mas mag-pop out ‘yung suot ko (Tweaking a bit of my outfit so it pops out),” she notes.


With summer creeping up on us, Belle chooses comfort above everything. She shares, “My tip [for summer dressing] is to go for outfits that are very comfortable, but at the same time, very stylish.”


With her selection of ultra-feminine ternos from the exclusive collection, you’re good to go! And for those who don’t want to show too much skin, a barely-there bralette saves the day.



If you’re looking for date-friendly pieces for Love Month, Belle recommends pieces that you can wear from day to night. She shares, “I personally will go for something very functional and versatile at the same time—something I can wear for the day and…I can wear at night if I’m going out on a date.”

At the end of the day, Belle believes fashion is a form of self-expression. If you want to expand your wardrobe, here’s what she has to say: “Feel free to explore, really. Don’t be afraid [to try new things] because fashion is really a statement. Personally, that’s how I express myself; depending on what I feel today, that’s how I’ll dress up.”


She adds, “Fashion for me is a form of art, of representing yourself. So, don’t be afraid to show who you are.”



Belle Mariano’s exclusive collection with SHEIN is available for sale on the SHEIN app.
