The colour red symbolises many things to many different people across the world. On our shores, it is used to represent unity in our flag and on every National Day, we wear the vermillion hue with pride to celebrate our country’s achievements—this year will be no different. Okay maybe just a little.
As none of us will be able to watch the National Day Parade in person or spectate along the Helix bridge overseeing the Marina Bay Floating Platform, what we wear is no longer dictated by environmental concerns such as humidity. So, we rounded up some of our favourite style star’s scarlet outfits that are perfect for watching the live telecast of the parade in the comfort of your home. Or for when you’re out and about during the long weekend.
