Singapore turns 57! Red and White Outfits and Accessories for National Day!
With Singapore’s dazzling National Day celebrations in full swing after its 2-year hiatus, the WYLD team can’t wait to pop open the champagne for the nation’s 57th year of independence on 9 August! Whether you’re catching the fireworks, spending time with family or having a cosy night in, you can bet this beautiful city will be decked in kaleidoscopic red and white hues.
While these shades look amazing on pretty much everyone, the country’s national colours also have their own meaning. The colours of the Singapore flag reflect the nation’s values with red symbolising universal brotherhood and equality and white representing purity and virtue. If you wanna join in on the celebrations, here’s a WYLD edit of our favourite red and white pieces to cop right now.
Have the best day celebrating with family and friends and happy 57th birthday Singapore!
Psst: We love a good National Day deal. Enjoy up to $57 off selected pieces. Promo ending 9 August 2359!
Match With Your Little One
We can’t get over how adorable matching mother-daughter outfits are. Mamas who love the look as well — we have good news! The Baebeeboo flaming red dress is the perfect comfy fit for you and your angel. Choose to dress it up with trusty sneakers or slip-on sandals and don’t forget some chunky earrings for that extra va-va-voom. Not just for the National Day celebrations, the 100% cotton frock is lightweight and perfect for a family island vacay. Remember to snap a matchy-matchy pic with your little one for the gram!
Get Patriotic With Your Accessories
If you’re not a fan of dressing up in a full red-white ensemble, you can still add a subtle pop of patriotism with your accessories. Pair the Three One Two Five Daisy Earrings with a flirty sundress. These hand-woven beaded drop earrings come in 4 variations of gemstones — Red Agate, Tiger Eye, Citrine and Malachite.
You also gotta love the Singapore heat (maybe not all the time…) and everyone needs a pair of sunnies to tackle that blazing sun. The Lo and Behold white frames are a trusty accessory to have especially if you’re partying at Tanjong Beach Club! Having a picnic with the city skyline and fireworks as the view doesn’t sound too bad either. Bring out your modern prairie maxi dresses and pair them with the Lullaa white headband and basket bag for the ultimate romantic silhouette.
1. Threeonetwofive Double Daisy Earrings, $48
2. Lo & Behold Almost Famous Sunglasses - White, $79
3. Luulaa Eloise White Silk Headband, $69
Singapore is a melting pot of various races and ethnicities and what better way to celebrate National Day than by appreciating some Asian-inspired silhouettes? The Luna Kimono is a staple to have as a cover-up on holiday or throw it over a maxi dress for some regal elegance. The Nala cheongsam blends traditional and quirky with its classic upright collar and capped sleeves mixed in with splashes of red, purple and green geometric prints. Pair this number with open-toed mules for a modern twist. Fisherman pants were adapted from sarongs and traditionally worn by Thai fishermen. The Nala Wrap Trouser is designed with the same comfy fit and can be paired with a cropped tank top and Birkenstock sandals for an effortless fit.
1. Luna Kimono - Red Leopard, $85
2. Nala Defined Cheongsam - Welcome Back, $149.90
Keep Your Feet Chic and Comfy
Whether you’re celebrating in the clubs or by the Singapore River, you need a pair of comfy shoes to get you through the day. Celebrate Singapore’s birthday with homegrown brand Baebeeboo’s adorable polka-dotted sandals. The Baebeeboo Jaedals are the go-to shoes for running errands and can be paired with casual jeans and a white tee.
When tackling the Singapore humidity, covered shoes may not be the most comfortable (sweaty feet are not cute!). Dress up the average Singaporean uniform of shorts and a breathable top with strappy white sandals from Annie & Lori and Bayou. You can count on the Annie & Lori Crostini Sandals to take you around the city with its padded soles and the Bayou Eva 100% leather white sandals will last you a lifetime with its high-quality material.
