The Cool Girl’s Guide To Slaying Festival Dressing At Laneway Singapore

No, this is not Coachella - so ditch the flower crowns and kimono cover-ups. We highlight eight streetstyle trends to work into your outfit for Singapore's biggest indie music festival on Saturday, January 21.

#1: The bralette

Whether layered over crop tops or worn on their own, the bralette is Spring 2017’s It wardrobe piece, thanks to brands like Alexander Wang, DKNY and Fendi. Bonus: You’ll be hot weather-appropriate too.

 

#2: Vinyl

How you do punk at Laneway the streetstyle-approved way: By pairing vinyl skirts or pants with casual accessories like lace-up sandals. Extra points for being bang on-trend: The shiny, reflective material has been spotted on the S/S ’17 runways at brands like Lanvin and Kenzo.

 

#3: Velvet

Velvet might not be a material you reach for when heading to an outdoor music event, but it’s a sure-fire way to make your look a lot more luxe. Just introduce it into your outfit by way of chic cover-ups or cropped tops.

 

#4: Loungewear

Comfort is key when it comes to long hours of partying – so loose-fitting pajama shirts or slip dresses in lightweight fabrics like silk or satin make great wardrobe options.

#5: The graphic tee

Sure, band tees will give your look an off-duty vibe, but it’s a little too predictable for a music festival. An alternative that’s just as cool: Graphic tees (opt for an oversized version and turn it into a t-dress like this show-goer did).

 

#6: Anything in metallic finishes

Shiny, iridescent separates are fool-proof ways to make your OOTD a lot more fun and unexpected.

 

#7: The mini bag

Grooving to Japanese rapper Kohh’s hip-hop verse or R&B singer Nao’s mash-ups with a bulky bag = a huge no-no. Downsize to a miniature purse or clutch to store the bare necessities while keeping you hands-free.

 

#8: Loud accessories

Use statement jewellery to jazz up a casual get-up, like the cobalt blue earrings and quirky necklace these fashion showgoers wore.
