In case it wasn’t obvious, National Day's fast 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 (and you)!
Whoop! National Day’s just around the corner and we are EXCITED. If National Day is all new to you and the fam, have a read of our quick guide to the history of Singapore and catch yourself up. Then of course you’ll want to find out all about this year’s SG56 and NDP celebrations (despite its postponement), including what the theme song is and where to catch the fireworks. But first… make sure you deck yourselves and the kiddies out in red and white clothes for National Day! There’s no better way to get in the festive spirit (even if we’ll be celebrating from the comfort of our homes again this year…).
Where to get red and white clothes for National Day 2021
There’s only one design (pictured up top) that you can get from dressedingabe for your red and white National Day clothes, but we’re willing to let it slide when it’s just so darn cute! Parents, get this to match with your kiddos. There’s even a sleeveless bodysuit version for the little bubba. Twinning to the max, we say.
