Car parks

When taking pictures in an urban area, you’ll want to make the best of it – a skyline and an empty, neutral space won’t distract from your style. Try the carpark at IKEA in Tampines if you’re in the east, or Lepark for a more central location.

National Museum of Singapore

Despite its long service as the backdrop to many an OOTD, this museum will never be archaic. The grey exterior compliments your style, whether you’re a minimalist or a street-wear peacock.

Tennis court

Say what?! It’s true, tennis courts and running tracks are the new spots to show off your attire. It’s a refreshing break from all the concrete and glass in our city.

Near the paddle lodge of the kayaking hire booth are two piers overlooking the stretch of water. Go in the early morning or late afternoon for the most flattering light and try the latest trend for OOTD pics: the hair flip.

An escalator

Taking a decent picture on an escalator means you’ll need zero human traffic and a lot of patience. Visit this spot at Newton MRT station (the Downtown Line) during off-peak hours for a hope of a shot like this.

Singapore Art Museum

Let’s play a game: name one fashion blogger in Singapore who has never shot in the pretty corridors of the museum. Yeah, they all have. There’s something about columns, arches and a good dress that’s so alluring you forget it’s a cliché.

Chijmes

This OOTD spot is as familiar to an #fblogger as their bathroom mirror, but not everyone gets it right. To nail a flattering photo, make sure you get there around 5 to 6pm for the golden hour and choose an outfit that suits the romantic white building with pops of colour from the flowers in the background.

Capitol Theatre

Although this is one of our newer malls, its neon Capitol theatre sign has already attracted Singapore’s most stylish girls looking for a new OOTD backdrop. Concentrate on snapping a good portrait and show off your accessories.

Orchard Road intersection

It’s in one of the busiest places in Singapore and you wouldn’t think of parking yourself here for a picture of your outfit. But if you get it right, almost any other location will be a breeze. Pro tip: don’t just stand there looking like one of the many store mannequins in the surrounding area, catch a picture mid-stride for a flattering frame.
