5 most patriotic things S’poreans can wear to win Most Patriotic S’porean award
How to stand out when everyone wears the same thing.
Wearing red and white is what everyone does on National Day. But combining a red top with white trousers or a skirt is so blasé. Surely, as Singaporeans, we can be far more creative.
Here are some apparel that will make you stand out from the crowd this National Day.
1. Singapore flag cap
Red caps are all the rage these days (especially in America). Make sure you’re shielded from sun and the rain with this beautiful red cap decorated with the five stars and moon. Caption about making Singapore great again not included.
2. Singapore’s Independence Day t-shirt
In case you’ve forgotten the date of Singapore’s independence, this helpful t-shirt will be there to remind you every time you look in a mirror. As a bonus, wear it overseas on holiday and confuse foreigners who have no idea what it refers to.
3. Singapore tote bag
This very useful tote bag can help you to store many important things, from tissue packets to chope a spot at the hawker centre to glowsticks for waving in the air while you belt out Home as best you can.
4. Merlion dress
For the more adventurous among you, try on a fabulous glittery dress that evokes the ancient myth of a fantastical ocean creature invented by the Singapore Tourism Board in the 1970s.
5. Singapore flag trunks
Let these snug trunks ensure your display of patriotism even when you’ve removed most of your clothing, perfect for both the beach and pool.
Hold on, it seems like the trunks have been criticised as “inappropriate” and not treating the elements of the flag with dignity. So please, don’t wear them.
5. Singapore flag t-shirt
When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a simple flag-inspired t-shirt for National Day. You could pair it with a denim jacket and cosplay as Jenny Quantum, Singapore’s only superhero.
Have a fabulous, fashion-forward ninth of August.
