If Covid-19 put a damper on your travel plans, here’s the silver lining: sometimes the best vacations are the ones that are closest to home.

Consider nursing your travel bug by rediscovering parts of Singapore you haven’t ventured to and booking a stay at a local hotel or Airbnb for a change of scenery.

Of course, don’t forget about your staycation outfits. Half the fun’s in packing and planning what to wear for each staycation occasion, right? Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the most stylish staycay outfits seen on local celebs to inspire your much-needed socially distanced time off. You’re welcome.

1. Zoe Tay: Colour-block swimsuit

She stayed at: Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore

The veteran actress proves that a one-piece is just as sexy as a bikini. Zoe flaunted her statuesque figure in a colour-block swimsuit while staycationing at Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore. Perfection!

2. Hong Ling: Nude off-shoulder dress

She stayed at: The Fullerton Bay Hotel

Want to spice up your romantic room service dinner? Take inspiration from actress Hong Ling’s sexy date-night outfit. She is wearing an elegant nude off-shoulder dress, which she dressed up with a pair of pearl drop earrings.

3. Sonia Chew: Scarf as a top

She stayed at: Hotel Fairmont Singapore

This season is all about thinking outside the box! Fashion girls including radio jockey Sonia Chew have been filling their Instagram feeds with fits featuring scarves tied across their chests.

If you are worried that your scarf will unravel as you go about your day, considering wearing a bandeau bra or strapless bikini underneath. For lounging by the pool, we recommend pairing your scarf top with some slouchy linen trousers or easy-breezy cotton shorts.

4. Dawn Yeoh: Printed ruched mini dress and black croc bag

She stayed at: Hilton Singapore

Actress Dawn Yeo’s printed mini dress proves that a ruched texture works best against a bodycon silhouette. Dawn paired her dress with a black croc bag, gold jewellery and a swipe of bright coral lipstick. Perfect for balmy nights.

5. Fann Wong: Pleated midi dress

She stayed at: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore

Celebrity mum Fann Wong is keeping her style game strong even on her off-hours. In this photo, she is wearing a plissé (micro-pleated) dress. Inspired by the 50s, a pleated dress in a floaty fabric and cinched waist is flattering on all body types.

The crinkled effect also hides any wrinkles, so you can always look fresh and put-together even if you just pulled the dress out of your weekend bag. Fann matched her pleated midi with comfortable yet chic espadrille sandals.

6. Fiona Fussi: Green gingham mini skirt

She stayed at: Orchard Hotel Singapore

Gingham is back in full force in 2021, whether it’s in the form of a billowy dress or a mini skirt. In this photo, model Fiona Fussi is sporting two trends — green and gingham. She teamed her green gingham mini with a simple black crop top.

7. Hanli Hoefer: Tube top and drawstring shorts

She stayed at: Fairmont Singapore 

Casual and comfy, yet totally stylish, a drawstring cotton short is perfect for both WFH days and staycays. These itty-bitty loose shorts are also great as a cover-up if you’re lazing by the pool. Hanli paired her drawstring shorts with a fitted basic white tube top.

8. Julie Tan: Cotton tunic

She stayed at: Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa

A staycay is the perfect excuse to wear your swimsuit with just about anything. For a look that works for lounging by the pool or brunch at the hotel restaurant, actress Julie Tan’s sheer white tunic and swimsuit combination is classic. She teamed her tunic with a sun hat with black trim.

9. Jade Seah: Porcelain printed dress

She stayed at: Populous Hotel

How sophisticated is this porcelain printed dress seen on media personality Jade Seah? This classy number can be easily dressed up or down. If you’re not pairing it with sandals, opt for a pair of white sneakers.

10. Hazelle: Printed maxi dress with cut-out detail

She stayed at: Hilton Singapore

If you’re looking for an effortless outfit for your staycay, turn your attention to a flowy printed maxi. Follow radio deejay Hazelle’s lead and style it with a pair of bold shades for a laidback look.

11. Denise Camillia: Spring-ready lilac dress

She stayed at: Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa

Your fave pale purple shade from the 90s is back with a vengeance. The trick to pulling off a colour like lilac is to opt for modern silhouettes.

For example, How Are You 2 star Denise Camillia’s purple ruched bodycon dress makes for an easy weekend staycay outfit.

12. Tay Ying: Flirty floral frock

She stayed at: Hilton Singapore

Floral dresses are just so fun. While they can be worn on any occasion, there’s no better time to embrace joy-sparking floral dresses than staycations. As a rule of thumb, avoid slouchy bags as they give off a more hippie vibe. Instead, pick a bag that is more boxy and structured like what actress Tay Ying did here.
