One of Asia’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities, Singapore is a regular haunt for tourists. The city may have no fabulous beaches, but a bevy of family-friendly attractions make it a popular choice. Next month, the city also gears up for one of its biggest events—the Singapore Grand Prix slated for September 16-18. With high-octane races and concerts by the likes of Kylie Minogue on the cards, racing enthusiasts are queuing up to make a trip to the grand spectacle. We have handpicked these essentials for modern gentlemen heading to the Singapore Grand Prix to travel in style.
What To Wear
Dominated by high humidity and occasional rainfall, Singapore merits a weather-appropriate dress code. When it comes to packing for a short trip, take the minimalist route. The golden rule is to keep limited but versatile pieces that are easy to mix and match. A smart mix of casuals and dressy clothes and accessories will cover the races, parties, and sightseeing. A compact umbrella or an ultra-light windcheater is a must-have, particularly because the Singapore Grand Prix is a rain or shine event.
How To Wear
Get airport ready with a denim on denim ensemble punctuated with a striped tee. It’s super casual yet stylish.
Sightseeing in the heat is made easier with a pair of shorts. Pair it up with linen shirt and loafers for a laidback ensemble.
Take the races in style with this monochromatic attire. For an added dose of dapper, accessorize with a hat and scarf duo.
Heading to an after-races concert? Simply throw on a lightweight jacket over a white tee and pair jeans with ankle-length boots.
Set the right sartorial mood. The key lies in layering—a shirt with a linen blazer is ideal for a formal ambience.
Last minute shopping haul? A plaid shirt is easy to style with chinos and loafers. Replace shopping bags with a holdall.
Whether you are soaking in the singular ambience of the world’s biggest racing extravaganza or dancing your heart out at the afterparties, this relaxed chic travel capsule will make sure you do it all in style.
