How to dress in a Singaporean fashion with these 10 local brands

How to dress in a Singaporean fashion with these 10 local brands

With Singapore's SG50 celebrations in full swing, we all want to play our part and wear our Singaporean culture proudly. But the Singaporean culture is much more than just wearing red and white, or even pink, as some people have stylised.

Here are 10 brands to shop from to make sure that you're 'sibei Singaporean'. Sure can one lah.

1. Temasek Clothings

The cheekily named Temasek Clothings went viral recently for their rendition of Singapore celebrity puns, like The Sam Pillows and Pierre Cai Png, but they're more well known for their awesome collection of T-shirts.

From the CNY-appropriate "Seven Lontongs" to "That's what Zubir Said", their Tshirts are punny and are sure to start up a conversation with your fellow Singaporean.

The latest addition to their Tshirt collection? "Stunned Like Vegetable". You're welcome.

2. Roadside Stall

The name of the store says it all: it is something for Singaporeans of all types and from all backgrounds. After all, we all do go through similar troubles, like suffering from the same haze, struggling with the same housing prices, even hoping to get lucky from the same 4D.

And if you're a proud parent of a very Singaporean baby, you can let people know how they like their milk - gau or siew dai?

3. Mini Asian Chef

Food is a huge part of Singaporean culture, and we all love the same snacks and delicacies. What better way to show our love for Singapore food than to wear them as accessories? These earrings and pins made of polymer clay are delicious and almost edible, though I would strongly refrain from licking the pineapple tarts.

4. Angkukueh Girl

This adorable label has its own range of cartoon characters named after some of our favourite Singaporean foods like Angkukueh Girl, Curry Puff Boy, and Kueh Lapis Girl, but their food-inspired pouches are a must-have for a Singaporean getup. They only have Png Kueh and Ang Ku Kueh so far, but the embroidery on these pouches have amazing detail.

Anyone knows what the Chinese character on the Png Kueh says?

5. Wet Tee Shirt

For all the inside jokes you ever needed on a T-shirt, look to Wet Tee Shirt. With all the latest Singapore jokes and trends immortalised onto T-shirts, there really isn't anything else you need to decipher the Singaporeans from the imposters.

Don't get it? Too bad.

They even have something for those #SG50ShadesOfGrey fans.
