The 9th of August is a date that holds a special place in every Singaporean’s heart. During the month of the nation’s birthday, you will see the streets being filled with people donning colours of red and white. Here’s how you can stand out from the crowd and celebrate with some stylish options from our favourite online stores.
Outfits for the Parade
If you’re out to attend the National Day Parade, it is important to choose outfits that are light-weight and cooling in order to beat the heat from our sweltering weather and the congested crowd.
