Whilst some of us will be getting ready to pack the sunnies, sunscreen and bralettes, the rest will be looking at other Bank Holiday weekend plans a little closer to home. Sentosa anyone?
From one pieces to crop tees to oversized earrings, the festival fashion style is easy, breezy and luckily...all currently available in stores. So you don’t even need to search high or low to bag yourself items that will make you feel like a rockstar (even if you’re just visiting grandma for Sunday lunch). Whatever your plans, these pieces will elevate your OOTD to a Coachella worthy outfit.
And may we just say, before you get sad looking at the Coachella headlining acts, that you’re saving a ton of money staying put...meaning you have MORE money to blow looking hawt. It’s a no-brainer if you think about it (yes, we’re trying to convince ourselves too).
Nothing says ‘festival’ more than a tee with an iconic rock band print. There is literally nothing, we repeat NOTHING, more ‘typically festival’ than the Rolling Stones motif. Hence why this tee is a must-buy.
Oh, and the oversized aspect means you can sweat all you like (all that dancing you’ll be doing, in your living room) and not worry too much about dark marks.
Reclaimed vintage inspired oversized Rolling Stones band t-shirt, $101.35 from ASOS
Stressed-look or ripped denim shorts are the number-one piece for festival fashion.
They’ve got the hint of ‘devil may care’ attitude that a day rave needs...combined with a spot-on summer style for a festival like Coachella.
Ripped shorts, $34.90 from Zalora
Any festival fan knows, a good bag can make or break your experience. You can’t be dealing with a large clutch or tote when you’re jumping and screaming song lyrics.
That’s why a key festival fashion piece is a fanny pack or a rucksack. This miniature rucksack is zipped up for security and big enough to hold all of your belongings, but small enough not to annoy other fellow festival dancers.
'Mini Wilson' Rucksack, $1285.61 from SheShops
You’re going to be on your feet all day, what with the dancing...walking...more dancing...you get the drift.
Yes, we knowwwww it’s only up and down Siloso beach but it doesn’t matter - comfy shoes are a must my friend.
These strappy velvet sandals will ensure your soles stay strong AND keeps that OOTD in with the festival vibe.
Velvet strappy sandals, S$39.90 from MANGO
When the sun beats down on your back and you’re sipping cocktails at the bar, it’s best to have something to throw on to be able to dance through the night.
This kimono hits all the right spots with the muted palette and featured all-over pattern that ‘nods’ towards tribal. Kimono, we heart you so.
Kimono, $59.90 from H&M
Oh, why hello there cheeky. The bralet is a sure-fire way of feeling like you’re ready for backstage access...even if it’s just a booth at the back of the restaurant you’re hitting up.
It doesn’t matter, what matters is that you feel like a festival VIP all weekend, which you absolutely will in this crepe de chine bra top.
Marni's 'Ryon' printed crepe de chine bra top, $425 from Net-a-porter
Yes, we’re going to probably dip into the pool and yes, we’re definitely not going to want to go home and change after. Who even changes at festivals (even just a made-up festival in our head)?
That’s why a one-piece is a staple for festival fashion. You can strip off, dive in, have a swim, then dry off and simply pull those ripped shorts back on for partying through the night.

There’s one easy way to spruce up your style fit for festival season - extra large earrings.
Pin your hair up and strap these bad boys on, complete with shorts and flatforms for instant festival upgrade.

Sometimes, you just can’t be bothered to work out an entire outfit head to toe. Particularly if you got in at the early hours because ‘the music just totally got you’.
We know, the jams get us too.
But if you still need to venture out the next day (just think, what would they do at Coachella?) then throwing on a maxi dress is the easy choice. Dress, sunnies, sandals...good to go.
You might need some H2O for that hangover too, just saying.
Floral maxi dress, $29.90 from H&M
Do you know how fresh your outfit is? It’s SO fresh it needs it’s own label….so everyone knows just how fresh-la-fresh it actually is.
Oh, would you look at that.
This t-shirt dress is just what the Coachella doctor ordered. For the epitome of ‘effortlessly cool’ chuck this bad-ass dress on with...well...whatever you darn well want. You’re so fresh you can make anything work.
