Lucky us; Singapore's proximity to the many gorgeous beach destinations mean that a resort vacation is really just mere hours away. At the same time, that means that most of us really pack at the last-minute (oops!).
Besides the requisite beach hat and sunnies, here's a handy list to help make packing for that weekend getaway a little less stressful. We share the must-haves to bring with you:
1. A summer dress
Cotton dress, $24.13 from Cool-Find K-Style
Seriously, you’re just there for a short trip, so it’ll be wise to pack light. Be it floral frock or a simple cotton dress, stick to one dress so that you can just grab and go.
2. A cover-up
Because a plain ol’ tee alone isn’t enough. Besides, you’ll have your bikini on most of the time, since you’ll be spending most of your time by the pool or beachside!
Polyester cover up, $120 from Vamastyle
Cotton cover-up, $49 from Mango
3. A loose cotton top
Whether it’s a tee or blouse, you’ll always need at least one of these to holiday in stylish comfort.
Kendall + Kylie cotton top, $79.90 from Topshop
Anna K cotton tee, $81 from She Shops The Online Store
4. A pair of cute shorts
Admit it, which Singaporean will go without a least a pair of these? The chic way to do it is to pick a pair, with a fun print.
CPS rayon blend shorts, $79.90 from Zalora
5. A chic, waterproof sandals
PVC flip flops, $99 from Melissa

6. A multi-way swimsuit
Bikini top, $89.90 and bikini bottom, $69.90, both from Triumph
Whether you’re actually swimming or just lounging by the pool, you know you’ll want to pack swimwear with you; they don’t weigh much, to begin with. In particular, we love this fun printed set from Triumph (as seen above). Keep the straps on to wear it as a bikini or detach the straps to wear it as a bandeau top.
7. A bag of sample-size toiletries
It forces you to pack light; setting these aside early means that you can just grab and go for your next weekend trip. Most importantly, don’t forget to bring your sunscreen!
