Is it hard to believe that the sporting world’s most glamorous event is about to hit our shores soon? Loaded with more adrenaline than the U.S. Open and a polo match, F1 is where speed meets style. Starring the hottest #mcms from Lewis Hamilton to Sebastian Vettel, the star-studded lineup also features Jay Chou, The Killers, Dua Lipa and Martin Garrix to kick off the festivities. From the VIP box to the pit, the event spans the CBD area. Not only do you have to deal with our crazy hot weather and some road closures, the bigger issue is organising what to wear for three days.
Karl x Kaia Jersey Catsuit in Black, $498.66 at Revolve
Cut and fitted like a Marvel superhero costume, this catsuit is bound to make heads turn. Not exactly the most bathroom-friendly garment in the world, you can turn it into ultra high-waisted leggings by styling it with a t-shirt.
Alain Mikli Paris Aujour’di Hui Checkered Sunglasses, $455 at Ssense
Although these are a pair of men’s sunglasses, these can be equally stunning on our delicate features when we need to block the rays at 4 pm. Channel Bella Hadid in a high ponytail, honey-toned nude lip and a crop top with bike shorts when you’re at Zone 4.
Fenty X Puma Colour Belted Skirt, $726 at Far Fetch
Let your heart rate spike up with this insane belted glossy skirt. Tone it down with a crop top and sneakers.
Lambert 1.0 Crop Zip, USD $180 at Lambert
Dietrich meets Rihanna in a snazzy and sharp baggy pinstripe crop top. With an O-ring detail, we love how it’s so edgy, yet dressy enough for us to take it from day to night. Pair it with a tennis skirt and sneakers by day. Then, swap the sneakers with bling bling heels at night for the F1 party!
Solid & Striped x Re/DONE Malibu Checked Swimsuit, USD $144 at Net-A-Porter
Not down to sweat in a long-sleeved top, t-shirt or bra? Show some skin (in a tasteful way) with a curve-hugging checked swimsuit. Wear it as a bodysuit underneath a cropped sweatshirt and shorts for day.
Daisy Crystal Studded Shorts, AUD $240 at Daisy
As the under-the-radar brand that’s been worn by Kendall Jenner to Elsa Hosk, Daisy’s lingerie-inspired, yet cutting edge aesthetic has been a hit among everyone on Instagram. (Even, I.AM.GIA has been caught red-handed by Diet Prada for ripping off this brand!) Drama aside, these shorts bring in raw, yet laid-back glamour to the track. Trust us, you will NEED these shorts for all three days.
Maryalle Bellatrix Mustard Top, Rp 769,000 at Love and Flair
Need to find the perfect work to party top on Friday night? Look every inch the boss babe in this sculptural peplum top. Part-masculine, part-feminine, this design is nothing like the ruffled waists of 2012 as it’s got a grey and black striped wide sash and an asymmetrical hemline. Dress it down with leggings, drop earrings and PVC wedges for the perfect pit meets afterparty cocktail outfit.
Maryam Nassir Zadeh Glittered PVC Shoulder Bag, USD $385 at Moda Operandi
Come rain or shine, get the party started with a weatherproof PVC purse.
Fendi Logo Print Buckle Strap Sneakers, $942.68 at FRWD
Need a clean white sneaker that can still look chic after long hours of wearing them on the streets? Trust us, we swear by Fendi’s logo-covered sneakers for maximum comfort and style. Hey, at least it doesn’t hurt to look on trend, right?
Herve Leger Carmen Off-The-Shoulder Dress, USD $515 at The Outnet
Rub some shoulders at the VIP box with this demurely sexy Ferrari red dress. Like all things Y2K, bandage dresses aren’t really dead when you pair it with logo-embellished accessories.
Stone Cold Fox Tennis Romper, USD $250 at Stone Cold Fox
Not a big fan of bold brights? Get back to non-boring basics with this heart-melting ‘60s inspired pale lemon romper. Channel Winnie Harlow by revealing a lace bralette top underneath. But, make it sporty with a track jacket.
Y-3 Selvedge Matt Track Jacket
Avoid looking like a souvenir shop by stepping out in a sleek black and white jacket. Although it’s hot outside, cooler temps call for a jacket to keep you warm against the wind. Inject a ladylike vibe with a little white dress, thin wrist watch, cross body bag and mules.
