From Punk To Boho, These Are The Hottest Styles To Rock At Laneway Singapore

Singapore's biggest indie music festival takes place this Saturday, Jan 21. Start prepping for your Instagram-worthy OOTDs with our shortlist of the hottest Spring Summer 2017 runway looks to emulate.

#1: Throw it back to the ’70s and ’80s

Whether it’s in the form of retro prints (as seen at Miu Miu) or cuts (note the high-waisted Hermes pants), giving your outfit a vintage-y element is unexpected yet fun. If you’re gunning for midriff-baring looks, do it the fashion-forward way with ruffled bandeaus like on the Altuzarra runway.

 

#2: Do boho

While it’s a style that most people fall back on for festival gear, the look to have off the S/S ’17 runways are loose, billowy skirts and dresses like at Alexander Wang and Chloe – not your typical fringe skirt or floral kimono. Also festival-ready: The folksy dress, as seen at Tory Burch.

 

#3: Keep things casually cool

Think slogan or logo tees like Dior’s statement piece, or baggy pants like Milly’s striped design and off-the-shoulder numbers a la Roland Mouret. Style them with minimalist accessories to keep the look understated and effortlessly chic.

 

#4: Go girly

Feminine appliques like lace and ruffles, as well as muted colour palettes like baby pink and white, make ideal choices. Keep the look fresh with nude lip gloss shades.

#5: Ace rocker chic

The band tee may be one of the easiest ways to amp up the edge in your outfit, but it’s been done to death. Other ways to add a punkish, rebellious element to your dressing: Do full leather (like Alexander McQueen’s bad*ss bustier), throw on a leather vest (like the Coach look here), or pair your leather skirt with killer boots (see Louis Vuitton). Another option: Vinyl separates, the streetstyle-approved way to show off your “dark side”.

 

#6: Do sexy the modern way

The bralette might be everywhere on the S/S ’17 runway, but 3.1 Phillip’s Lim take gives it a sporty spin. A slip dress like Dries’ version, meanwhile, shows off your curves in a subtle manner, while Kenzo’s sequinned frock says “party” without being too skimpy.

 

#7: Take beachwear to another level

Yes, you can still do floral prints at a music festival without looking gimmicky – just opt for high-waisted bottoms (as seen at Michael Kors) or keep it to a cover-up (like the palm print Max Mara coat above). Or go mono-coloured just like the Miu Miu girl, while accenting your look with cool head accessories.
