With a little over a month to go before Christmas, it's really time you take our advice seriously: Beat the holiday rush, and start your holiday shopping now! If you have yet to complete your holiday wardrobe (and grab some back-up outfits, since there will be a lot of last minute parties you just might be invited to!), take this opportunity to stock up on the season's trendiest pieces--as seen on the runways of Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011.

One of the shows we checked out was Premiere A, which combined the creations of five top local designers in one gorgeous fashion show. We took note of some key holiday trends we spotted on their creations, to help guide you when you hit your favorite shopping haunts in search of party outfits.

Kristel Yulo: Beautiful Evening Wear
For inspiration when scouting for formal wear, check out Kristel Yulo's breathtakingly beautiful handcrafted evening dresses with floor-grazing skirts, made of hard sequins and soft chiffon.

Michele Sison: Wild Prints And Brights
Michele Sison's unique mix of Indian-like feathers and a wild palette of brights, animal and oriental prints made a statement on the runway--and would most probably make your outfit a statement, should you decide to incorporate these trends. This outrageous tribal vibe was complemented with show-stopping ethnic statement accessories that adorned the decolletage spectacularly. (Carla Abellana, Nikki Gil, and other celebs make their appearance on her runway, too.)

Philip Tampus: Dazzling Party Wear
The collection boasted of "sheer" simplicity, with a brilliant application and reinvention of key fashion trends such as uneven hemlines, pearls, sheer, and textured lace, plus frou frou masterpieces. If you want to turn heads at your parties, be sure to find pieces with these trends found in Philip's collection.

Ralph Ng: Sophisticated Androgyny
Androgyny was the name of Ralph Ng's sartorial game, as both ladies and gents walked down the runway in similar unisex blazers and loose trousers, paired with sneakers in sand, slate gray, and black. However, this collection took on a full 180-degree turn as the ladies' sneaks were replaced with higher alternatives, and the blazer-pants combo sharply transitioned into an unconventional take on party dressing. Aside from the classic and safe little black dresses, ripped ones in bright yellow, purple, gray, and red made a pleasant surprise appearance on the runway.

Roland Lirio: Streamlined Elegance
The night ended with Roland Lirio's streamlined looks, with his classic take on trends. His superb collection makes for very good sartorial investments--and serves as ideal inspirations for ladies who want holiday looks that are classic yet with touches that make them still look very current.
