Here’s what to wear to the most exciting night race in Singapore – from sporty looks and comfy chic 'fits for the races to standout styles at the after-parties.
Planned your F1 weekend down to a tee? If you’ve secured seats to catch all the on-track action, enjoy the off-track live entertainment, rub shoulders with celebs at glitzy after-parties, and even booked luxury hotels nearby to crash after, you’re halfway there! Of course, you’ll need a full tank for the jam-packed weekend, which includes fuelling your engines with race-friendly outfits. To help you gear up for the buzzing weekend, here’s our fashion guide on what to wear to the F1 races, concerts and after-parties.
What to wear to the F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2023
For the fashionistas: Blazers and polo shirts with accessories for a snatched look
Hack your way to a snatched fit with a blazer but make it sleeveless to beat the heat. Ladies, turn heads with Love, Bonito’s Ryanna Linen Collared Vest. And you can’t go wrong with a classic dress. We’ve got our eye on Her Velvet Vases’ fun Ileana Ruched Dress in Paris Green.
For the men, start with a lightweight, breathable Ralph Lauren polo shirt. Team it up with tailored trousers (SuitSupply has a great range) and stylish white loafers or moccasins. Finish the look with a Panama hat for added flair.
For the comfort queens and kings: Loose-fit ensembles and breathable fabrics
Choose a stylish jumpsuit or co-ord set in a lightweight fabric. A cinched waist and wide legs will give you both comfort and style. We’re crushing on One Puram’s Dawn Co-ord Pant. Accessorise with a chunky belt and platform sneakers for a trendy twist. Otherwise, go for a flowy maxi dress in a bold F1 colour. Hot tip: opt for one with a thigh-high slit for ease of movement.
Guys, the relaxed shirt and shorts combo can’t go wrong. Opt for a short-sleeved button-down shirt in muted colours or in a fun print to jazz things up. Combine it with chinos or board shorts from Duxton and comfortable walking shoes like these Skechers Men Slip-Ins.
For sports junkies with a fashun flair: Bombers jackets and team jerseys
Donning official merchandise from head to toe isn’t recommended – it’s a little tacky, don’t you think? But that shouldn’t stop you from rooting for your favourite team. Put together a look that celebrates them – from Ferrari’s iconic red to Red Bull Racing’s blue and red livery.
The sports-inspired bomber jacket from In Good Company will take you through day and night with ease thanks to the organic linen fabric and relaxed fit. Assemble your look with a pair of shades (the John Jacobs Gold Black Full Rim Square Sunglasses from Lenskart are fab!) and a handy waist bag from Nike Heritage.
Gents, rock a Formula 1 team jersey or polo shirt paired with cargo shorts and comfortable sneakers. Top it off with a cap featuring your favourite team’s logo. You’ll be ready to cheer and race around the track with ease. Get started at the SingaporeGP shop for options. For a unisex pick, The Slipstream Apparel has cool motorsport-themed ‘fits (launching on 9 September) that can be worn beyond the F1 season.
For concert-goers: Keep it edgy
So you’ve seen the line-up and you’ve snagged tix to watch your favourite acts. Now, it’s time to dress the part. Ladies, blend style with comfort by choosing a graphic tee (Asos has plenty, including this Volcom oversized t-shirt in black) and pairing it with high-waisted denim shorts. Add some edgy accessories like layered necklaces and ankle boots for that rockstar vibe.
Gents, go for a classic singlet paired with distressed jeans (you can’t go wrong with Calvin Klein’s 90s Distressed Straight Jeans) and sneakers. Don’t forget to accessorise and don a stylish sling bag to carry your essentials!
For glamorous after-parties: Jazz it up with sequins and dress shirts
Earn ‘best dressed’ status at the fab F1 after-parties with a glitzy sequin number like Zara’s sequinned midi dress with cut-out detail. Complete your look with a Charles & Keith Micro Gabine Two-Tone Saddle mini bag that complements your ensemble. Strappy sandals or stilettos are excellent choices for an elegant party.
For the gentlemen, nothing says glamour like a well-fitted blazer. Too much for Singapore’s tropical weather? Take it down a notch with a crisp dress shirt from Edit Suits Co. Next, it’s all about the accessories. We’re talking anything from a stylish wristwatch to a pair of ear studs if that’s your scene. Finally, oxfords or patent leather shoes are great accompaniments to your look (how are these Hugo Boss Derby Shoes in leather?).
Remember: whether you’re a fashionista, sports junkie, concert lover, or classy dresser, the key is to stay comfortable, show your F1 spirit, and enjoy every thrilling moment at the Singapore Grand Prix in style! Are you ready?
