In case it wasn’t obvious, National Day is approaching (9 August!), and you’ll soon see everyone decked in red and white. So we’ve got a couple of spots around town (and online) for you to snag some cool threads for the little ones.
If National Day is all new to you and the family, have a read of our quick guide to the history of Singapore and catch yourself up. Not sure how else to prepare? Don’t forget to plan for the perfect evening out and check out where to catch the fireworks.
But first… what to wear!
This online boutique stocks cheongsams all year round (pictured above), and has a great range of red and white picks for the whole family. You’ll be spoilt for choice browsing its ‘too hard to choose just one’ collections.

Red and white galore is what you’ll find to add to your shopping basket from affordable British fashion giant Next. Delivery is free for orders over $50 (woohoo) and super quick (around five working days), so there’s still time to dress the gang top to toe in SG colours.

H&M is a sure winner when it comes to picking up threads for all occasions for the whole fam, and there are plenty of patriotic picks right now which are wallet-friendly, too!

With 10% off your first order, you’ll get more bang for your buck right now over at gorgeous online boutique, Angelibebe. Okay, so they’re definitely still splurge pieces (that adorable dress above is currently on sale at $102), but just think how much Insta-mileage you’ll get out of the kids’ poses.

Popsicle Baby knows a thing or two about kitting out the kiddos in adorable threads, and online stock currently includes heaps of snazzy picks in National Day colours. Now if only we could squeeze ourselves into that cute-as-a-button romper ($25.50)! Boys are not forgotten either with plenty of choices including a rather dashing red Mandarin collar shirt ($23).
