From grand staples to effortless stylish OOTDs, Heart Evangelista's fashion style is always something to achieve.

It's no secret that Heart sees fashion as a medium of self-expression and, as usual,  the fashion icon started the year 2023 in style.

On Jan. 3, Heart began sharing photos of her Japan trip with her husband Sen. Chiz Escudero and his twins Chesi and Quino. Apart from her activities on the trip, Heart has been giving her Instagram followers a show with her eye-catching outfits.

But let's face it, unlike the actress and fashion icon, not everyone has the moolah to fill one's own closet with trendy yet dear pieces from Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. 

If Heart's wardrobe in Japan inspires you to express yourself and unleash your inner fashionista, worry not as PhilSTAR L!fe will show you how to cop her chic style using affordable finds that wouldn't break the bank.

Play with neutrals

Who would've thought that searching for a sushi restaurant can be done with so much glamour? 

Heart nailed it in the streets of Tokyo in a neutral-toned ensemble that speaks luxury, especially with her brown leather coat and Hermés Himalayan Birkin bag.

Luckily, you can don the same cozy outfit with a ribbed white turtle neck sweater from Mango, and layer it with a feisty yet warm-looking faux leather brown blazer from Zara.

Perfect the neutrals combo with a faux leather green trousers from Zara.

You can never go wrong with whites 

Another neutral-toned ensemble that's surely worth copying from Heart is the outfit she wore when she dropped by the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama pop-up store in Tokyo.

This outfit is not only trendy but more so, comfy, as it comprises of laid-back pieces such as a turtle neck top, a hoodie, and leggings.

Like Heart, you can also layer the turtle neck sweatshirt with cropped hoodie from Uniqlo or a fleece jacket from Shein
