How To Dress For the Perfect Staycation During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Staycations are a great way to have a little holiday without having to leave the country at all. There’s something about staying in hotels—especially ones that have swimming pools—that makes people feel like they’re on vacation. But to truly capture the holiday vibes, booking a hotel room is only the first step.
Fashion is also a major aspect of holidays, whether you’re dressing for the new weather, or trying out new styles that you might be too self-conscious to pull off at home. Read on to find out what are some of the must-have clothing items in order to have the perfect staycation during the pandemic.
It wouldn’t feel like a true vacation without the perfect summer dress. Pastel colours and tie dye patterns are popular during the summer for their bright and cheerful aesthetic, and the Expired Girl Aurora Dress is the perfect choice with its yellow and green tie dye design. The tie spaghetti straps also add an extra summery vibe.

Most dresses don’t come with pockets, and when you’re on vacation, you might not want to lug around a huge backpack with all of your belongings. This is when a pouch would come in handy, and Alice Martha’s Kori pouch is definitely one of our favourites. Not only is it big enough to fit a handphone, it also has a zip compartment for you to keep your cards, coins, and other essentials.

There’s nothing that makes you feel like you’re on vacation more than spending a day lounging by the poolside does. If you’re the type to go out for a meal right after you’re done swimming, then wearing flip-flops to the pool might make you feel underdressed during dinner.
For a more stylish but just as practical option, why not go for waterproof sandals instead? These Fila sandals are also available in solid black, but the red and blue straps have more of a summer vibe.

And if you’re going to be spending all day by the pool, then sun protection is super important! While sunscreen is definitely a must-have, you can also add on some additional sun coverage with a baseball cap. The MLB Korea rookie baseball cap comes in many different colours, and other than the purple cap, the blue and red caps would also look great by the poolside.

Last, but most definitely not least, cute pyjamas are a must-have if you want to have a perfect staycation. Most Singaporeans wear old school t-shirts and dry-fit shorts at home in order to stay cool during the warm weather, so you should take advantage of the air-conditioned hotel room to show off your best pyjama sets!
If you’re going on a staycation with your friends, SPAO’s collection with FRIENDS would be a great option for cute matching pyjamas.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone all over the world, and we’re all still trying to find our footing within this new normal. While international travel for leisure may not be an option any time soon, that doesn’t mean that holidays are a thing of the past.
