Here's What To Wear To Ultra Music Festival 2018

For the non-ah lians (we hope)

With Ultra Music Festival happening in Singapore this weekend, we’re quite certain the party people will be fretting over what to wear there. Festival attire can be tricky, what more an outdoor electronic dance music fest with lots of moving involved. While the heat (and crowds) may call for skimpy clothing, you don’t want to look sleazy, and it’s also not Coachella where boho, fringed and floral everything is the norm. We presume chief of all this distress is the fact that you still have to document your weekend with the perfect #OOTD, hence we’ve pulled together some stylish items that will help you stand out from the young punks in the crowd.

#1: Denim bucket hat, $89, Tommy Jeans
With set times as early as 2pm, you may want to avoid the dreaded UV rays as much as possible with a stylish (and foldable) hat like this. #2: Faux leather mini skirt, $29, www.pomelofashion.com
What makes this different from any other pleather skirt out there? The tie at the side that can be adjusted to give a scrunched effect. #3: Metal and acetate shades, $640, Bottega Veneta
Protect your peepers with a good pair of shades, like this chic cat-eye-shaped one. #4: Lyocell jumpsuit, $69.90, Zara
A one-piece like this is a classic cheatsheet to looking stylish effortlessly. #5: Melflex pvc slides, $110, Melissa
Who knows how the erratic weather will behave on the days of the festival. To play it safe, you might want to go with a pair of slides like these (they look way more chic than flip-flops). Coincidentally, it’s also pride month. #6: Linen shorts, $55.90, Zara
Beat the sweltering heat while looking stylish in these linen shorts. #7: Calfskin sneakers, $1,300, Celine
Given that you’re going to be standing for an extended period of time, ditch the heels for a pair of sneakers to show off your best shuffle moves. #8: Backpack, $235, Diesel
Keep your hands free for those muzz moves with this prime music festival essential, a backpack. #9: Polyester-blend skirt, $84.95, H&M
We’re loving this short textured houndstooth skirt that features pile details. #10: Cotton T-shirt, $99, Tommy Jeans
A T-shirt like this is perfect for those who value comfort over anything else. What do we love about it? The neon colour that is a total fit for a rave party. #11: Polyester-blend top, $59.90, H&M
You can never go wrong with a black strappy cropped top that can virtually go with any pair of bottoms. With its rich satin texture, you can still look polished in a basic top like this. #12: Leather bag, $550, Marc Jacobs
A small cross-body bag like this ensures you don’t carry around unnecessary things that most of us are guilty of, and is just the right size for storing all the essentials. #13: Cotton denim shorts, $76.90, Topshop
Channel the rave gal aesthetic with these embellished shorts that will go great with camisoles and bodysuits. #14: Cotton-blend bandeau dress, $46.90, Topshop
At a festival like this, more is definitely more. Keep the accessories colourful and funky for a playful and extra fun look.
