They say "behind every successful man is a woman..."
This holds true even in fashion.
Because men are not usually that meticulous about their choices of clothes, ladies gladly do the job for them.
Heart Evangelista, for example, is the fashion adviser of Senator Chiz Escudero.
In a previous interview with The Philippine Star, she related, "I do advise him on what to wear and how to style himself. I can do that to him but he can’t to me!"
While the politician can not let go of his white polo shirts...
...Heart said, "Now, he adds layers his clothing, his shirts are buttoned up, he wears accessories like bracelets. He’s learning, but he also enjoys it.
"It’s something new to him.
"He’s too into his work and I come along and I have all this kikay stuff. I’ll make pakialam. 'Your gel is too shiny, my God!'
"When he feels comfortable with what I tell him, he’ll follow."
Otherwise, Heart said there's always a "compromise."
Jericho Rosales has always liked street-style wear.
And with some styling tips from his wife Kim Jones, he has learned to accessorize.
Kim has been her personal stylist since 2013.
In a previous interview, Jericho said, "In case I'm in a hurry and she sees me looking so kaswal, sasabihin niyan, 'Where are you going?'
"Then she'd give me something to make the outfit look more presentable."
Ali Khatibi's sense of fashion has leveled up since he married Cristine Reyes.
A shirt and jeans guy, he turns to his wife each time he needs to look more polished.
"I let my wife choose my outfits sometimes, and I love the outfits she picks."
At a branch of Perry Ellis, Cristine chose trim khaki pants and a dark navy long-sleeved woven shirt from the clothing brand's "handsome collection" this season.
Ali added, "...she knows what looks good on me.
"And blue is my favorite color, which makes this perfect!
"I trust her taste when it comes to fashion, and I'm glad I have her to help me out.”
