Shopping guide: 5 outfits for the SG50 long weekend
1. Attending the parade
Don't let the humidity and jostling crowd at the Padang dampen your spirits. A pair of shorts and a fuss-free breathable top is definitely the winning formula. Want to stand out from the masses? Try this fashionable ensemble complete with a pleated drawstring backpack to store all your SG50 goodies.
2. Weekend getaway
A short trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city is the best way to unwind before getting back to the grind. Taking inspiration from the balmy beaches of Seminyak, we recommend a mixed-print skirt, breezy top, and faux snakeskin slides for a relaxed, yet elegant, outfit that also shows off your national pride.
3. Catching up over brunch
Never say no to a flat white with a side of broccolini and eggs. Or a long overdue meet-up with old buds. Colour-blocking red and white might not be how you envisioned spending Saturday brunch, but structured culottes, lace-up sandals and a contemporary clutch takes the edge off the sartorial patriotism.
4. Dinner with friends
We all have that one friend who takes it upon herself to get the group together at every occasion. It might be a barbecue that gets the heat going, or a sit-down affair that requires nicer threads. Either way, an embroidered skirt and cut-out ruffled blouse will have you in the clear. And the furry Fendi bug? Conversation fodder.
5. Night on the town
Because these days, the only time you'll hit the town is when there are three more days to cushion the dreadful aftermath. A sweeping skirt (with a cheeky slit) elevated by suede pumps and a dash of rose gold is the perfect accompaniment to the late-night shenanigans.
