Whether you're in for a community adventure at the F1 Fanzone, some dancing on the sand at Beats on the Beach or a superstar experience at the After-Race Concerts, we have put together the iconic looks from Yasalam’s past to get your ‘look’ in gear.
Rita Ora’s bold take at beach wear
In 2014, Rita Ora told a bold step in the land of Beats on the Beach performance wear with a combination of daring sequins and racing stripes. A tribute to the occasion, Rita’s racetrack glam featured coloured tights and hot pants, topped off with a funky red hat which contrasts perfectly with her well-coordinated light blue hair.
How to make this look work: Brave it with figure hugging items in bright, block colours for an edgy appearance and you are sure to be right on the beat at this year’s Yasalam.
Kanye takes chrome from the track to the stage
If the du Arena is a stage, then Kanye West became more than an actor with this elegant and oh-so-sleek look for Yasalam’s 2011 After-Race Concerts. His fitted, satin blazer kept the look smart whilst keeping it relaxed and ready for super-star action.
How to make this look work: Tone down the formality by adding dark shades; an essential to any party environment.
Classic chill white from Miguel
In 2014, Miguel went for a breezy ‘Beats on the Beach’, style with an all-white ensemble that conveyed cool with an air of sophistication.
How to make this look work: Remember, we are heading to the beach. Pay simple attention to detail, roll up your sleeves and undo a few buttons to enhance the effortlessly chill look. Adding accessories keeps it hip, especially when layering chains and necklaces that can really elevate the style.
Kylie plays to her electric blues
Kylie knows that a trademark feature is always a good choice, highlighting her renowned blue eyes with an all azure outfit that hit all the right curves.
How to make this look work: If you want to be a colourful festival-goer utilize bold accessories for flashes of colour or embrace the all-over look for an outfit that’s sure to turn heads.
Sleek and stylish with Jason Derulo
Jason’s 2015’s Beach style was full noir and exemplified the street style in fashion.
How to make this look work: You can never go wrong with classic black. Adding extra detailing to cool street wear with textural leather and studs really creates effortless results. Go head to toe in black for the full look; don’t be afraid to stop at accessories, dark shades and a hat really is the cherry on top.
Beyoncé lights up the du Arena
A legendary look that left a mark on the du Arena stage for the first-ever Yasalam, Beyoncé brought all the glitz and the glamour of a race weekend with this body-hugging gold ensemble.
How to make this look work: Looking to be as fierce as the Queen? Stand out in the crowd with a one-piece or structured jacket and shorts that enhance your silhouette. Above all, make sure it is fit for dancing.
