Fashion Tips to Wearing Red and White Ensembles @ Reward Me

3 tips to pull off red & white in style

Looking for ways to pull off our national colours this month? Here’s some fashion tips to wearing red / white ensembles and not look like our Singapore flag!

Red is a fabulous color – it signifies prosperity, it screams daring, powerful and bold, and it makes you stand out immediately. As a color that’s so outstanding, people usually pair it with either black and white to tone down the outfit – and my favorite is white as it looks less severe/serious - but there are times when you stand in front of the mirror in a gorgeous white and red ensemble and go… “Whoa, I look like I’m all dressed for National Day!”

I don’t see what’s wrong with being patriotic, but still, here’s how you can look fashionably chic in white and red outfits, national day or not with these tips and picks!

As an accent – pair an all white outfit with red accessories!

Nothing screams “powerful” and “woman” than a classic red bag on your arms - Mansur Gavriel’s bags are all the rage now, and you’ll be lucky if you’re able to snap up one of this in red!

Rebecca Minkoff’s M.A.C Mini carries you from work to party with just the right amount of space for your bare essentials – this crossbody bag’s sling can also be shortened to a perfect shoulder handbag length.

We all need a strong statement piece in our accessory rack – and Givenchy’s Obsedia Triple Wrap Bracelet is just the right fit to jazz up your outfit with an edgy, rock chick feel!

And then there are days when you’ll prefer something dainty and less loud – Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato Bracelet in Red Nappa Leather features a silver-tone logo charm and gives your outfit an instant pop of color without being too loud!

How can we forget the soles? Red soles, to be exact. If there’s something sexier than strutting in heels, it’s strutting in Louboutins – the 120mm Pina Spikes with a nude front and a red back and buckle is just the right amount of sass and feminity in a pair of shoes.

Local brand Hello Hansel by Jo Soh has always been quirky, fun and often pays tribute to her Singapore roots by weaving interesting (and yet not overly cheesy) additions like Kueh Lapis into her apparels, and HDB blocks, in this case! The brooch is going to be a conversation starter piece on you, for sure!

Hello Hansel Mini Dress
Continuing from Jo Soh’s Blk 10 series, this is as patriotic as a Singaporean can get! Windows and garments hanging off a bamboo pole are typical sights at HDB flats and here, they are arranged in a zigzag formation, resulting in a lovely abstract print which isn’t too loud but draws you to the details – also available in different cuttings (maxi & shift dresses)

The Velvet Dolls Dress
The local label’s self-manufactured Mesh Pleated Dress has plenty of coral-red florals to stand out on a white background – making sure that you look dainty and presentable with a modest, flouncy hemline.

Keepsake the label Dress
Pair a white blazer with Keepsake’s pretty Take It All mini dress in abstract floral prints with dominant warm hues! Partying after work or on National Day? Simply shake off the blazer and you’re ready to rock the house down!

Megagamie Peplum Tube Top in White & 5. Finders Keepers Dreamweaver Pants
Somehow, the pairing of a peplum tube top makes the tartan baggy pants look less like it’s part of a pajama set and it makes an eye catching outfit without overly emphasizing on red tones! This pair of pants in lightweight fabric material is perfect for Singapore’s humid weather, and looks great paired with off shoulder tops and cropped tops too - especially if you have a set of great abs!

That isn’t red… or is it?

Match the shade of red to your mood that day – rich reds makes one feel sexy, dark reds spells mystery – and if you’re feeling innocent? A pink-red, perhaps! And how about smelling the part too? Downy’s Parfum Collection now contains Perfume Micro-capsules (PMCs), which will release scents into the air upon rubbing contact – that means that you’ll smell good throughout the day!
