While Exes Baggage may not be redefining local romcoms, there's no doubt the CarGel train is going full-steam right now. Leading man Carlo Aquino gives a "nuanced" performance in the film opposite IRL-ex Angelica Panganiban, which is also what we can use to describe his style game. Let's crib some outfit tips from the man of the moment.
Shirt and tie optional
With all the focus on being dapper, turning up sans shirt-and-tie suddenly looks really fresh. This other fit with the classic white and navy blue color combo is the stuff goals are made of. Just make sure your coat fits well and you have our permission to steal this look.
Rock some alternative classics
Nike Air Force 1's have long been classics, but it's a silhouette that we haven't seen much on feet lately. Carlo reminds us all how we wanted nothing more than an all-white pair of these not too long ago. Dig deep into your shoe rotation sometimes and rediscover sneakers you haven't worn in a while!
Kachupoy is real this 2018, go for it
Style extends to grooming and we'll be remembering Carlo's modern take on the kachupoy most of all. If you're thinkng about it, we say yes. It's an easy cut to mod if you don't like it afterwards, too.
All in with the frames
Does he actually have bad eyesight? We don't know, but what we do know is it's better to go all-in with the glasses look—get the frames of your dreams (gold ones for him) and don't try to play it "safe."
Swagger does not depend on clothes alone
This shot is what swagger is made of: looking good in something as weird as a period film uniform. Carlo might not be the actual leading man in this movie, but you can definitely tell he isn't a redshirt either. Just have fun with whatever you wear and people can tell—for real, fam.
