Our 2020 year-end plans definitely look a lot different than before.
Without an all-clear signal on mass gatherings and travelling, we can only count on staycations to have a taste of what Christmas countdowns and holiday travelling felt like just a year ago. 

Thankfully, there’s the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers to look forward to next month, which we can use to book ourselves a weekend getaway with our family or friends.

And of course, this means it’s time to get your staycay outfits sorted, dress up and get ready to have some fun at your small get-togethers. 

From playful prints to shimmery numbers, these budget-friendly party pieces will add some festive cheer to your celebrations. 

1. Ganni zipped-front dress, $175, on

2. Qlothè Clestine slip dress, $71

The bold yellow hue on this slip dress makes colour-blocking an easy affair. Go ahead and pick accessories and shoes of contrasting colours like pink, blue or orange to make an extra memorable #OOTD.

3. Melissa Odabash mini dress, $162, on Net-a-porter

Despite the travel restrictions, we can still pretend like we’re going on a holiday by opting for vacay-ready pieces, such as this mini dress featuring tropical prints that remind us of a beach vacation.
