Instagram-worthy walkways 

 

Here’s an idea for your next OOTD - instead of the usual hypebeast along a graffitied street or well-dressed minimalist at a quaint cafe, try channelling Vogue or high fashion supermodels along quirky and runway-esque walkways around Singapore. 

We combed through the Singapore map to uncover these 5 trippy walkways you can potentially turn into your own catwalking platform. 

 

1. Alexandra Technopark Underpass

Boots are the ultimate accessory to channel a powerful, fierce look. Blend in with the silver walls of the tunnel by wearing these metallic pewter boots and you might really pass off as a strong-woman type character in a classic sci-fi blockbuster - Star Trek anyone? 

To really get the space theme across, try throwing up your bag, or perhaps jumping in the air to create the illusion that you’re in zero gravity zone.

2. Changi Airport Linkway

This is not your average linkway. Changi Airport Linkway has never-ending rows of panelled floors with dim, futuristic lighting where you can werk it like you’re a contestant on Asia’s Next Top Model. 

For a winning entry - put on those tinted butterfly shades, cool dark blue asymmetrical flats and complete the colour coordination with a matching blue glossy shoulder bag.

The flats and carry-on are a luminous blue, a stand-out against the understated plain white tee and two-toned jeans.

3. Bayshore Park Tunnel

 

The Bayshore Park Tunnel connects Bayshore Park Condo to East Coast Park - its undulating facade painted yellow with a slight orange-y tinge. The eye-catching colour and wavy textures act as a perfect backdrop for this LBD and funky heels combo.

These velvety chunky heels take all the spotlight in the getup, as they should. The velvety texture gives it a special flair of light and dark greys, and when juxtaposed with the Bayshore Park, makes it all the more interesting to look at.

Want to rock that minimalist black and white aesthetic? East Coast Park is also home to this trippy black and white underground walkway - it comes with a largely white background and black striped panels.

Stepping into the scene or waiting for a train? At the One Fullerton Underpass, you just can’t tell the difference between standing up straight and lying down on the ground - the linkway is designed to play mind games.
