Decked out in a red parka and sweater with a white collar peeping out, Elvin formed a heart with his hands as he stood next to a red post box, “sending some love home.”

Time and again Tay Kewei has showcased impeccable maternity style. Case in point: On Singapore’s birthday she dressed the bump in a textured white smock by Singapore-based designer Sabrina Goh (bonus for supporting local talent on National Day), adding pops of red with Melissa sandals, statement tassel earrings, and crimson lips. With style this good, no wonder hubbie Alfred wrote “I always like to match whatever my wife wears.” How adorbs are their colour-coordinated shoes?

“Happy 52nd birthday Singapore. Thank you for everything that you have given me,” Jeffrey wrote on Instagram, posting a photo of him and Felicia at the Marina Barrage enjoying the National Day Parade preview among picnicking families under the azure blue sky. Jeffrey mixed patterns with a striped tee and plaid shirt, while Felicia sported wide-legged pants embellished with ruffles. “I truly feel blessed to be born in Singapore, where we can live together in harmony and be blessed with our safe and beautiful surroundings,” Felicia captioned.

Shaun’s got mad selfie skills, managing to capture this gorgeous view of himself and the backdrop, both in excellent focus. He exhibited his national pride in a basic red tee layered over white long sleeves. Sometimes simple is best.

Another patron of home labels, Cheryl rang in National Day in an outfit by Style Societe, looking elegant in the simple yet striking silhouette. You’d never guess that asymmetrical ruffle top is actually a bodysuit.

“Even though I’m sick, it will never dampen the national spirit I have for my country! Love you Singapore!!” wrote Yvonne, ever the model overseas Singaporean. This year little mei mei Alexa joined in on the National Day well wishes, and flaunted a cute headband to show her spirit.

Aw, is there a clearer way to wear your love for Singapore? Allan sported matching “I heart SG” tees with his kiddos and posed in front of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer for an adorable father-and-kids snap.

When you’re busy soaking up the amazing National Day scenes outside and trying to capture it all on your phone, comfort is key. Kym achieves just that with a sleeveless white tank, cherry red shorts, and red hat (hello sun protection).

How lovely is this flowy pleated red dress with a bowl detail? “May we never take the good we have for granted -- hold onto what’s beautiful and live each day with a little more grace,” Kimberly wrote in her birthday caption for Singapore.

Glenn Ong and Jean Danker

Also embracing the “I heart SG” gear was this enthusiastic duo. Matchy-matchy couple tees run the risk of being tacky, but standing in front of the flag at a National Day party, both Jean and Glenn radiate such joy that their outfit coordination is nothing short of sweet.

Hayley stunned in a ruffle-trimmed, blaring red dress from Topshop that showed off her gorgeous gams, with a black corset three-buckle belt looked about one bite of food away from being too tight, but there’s no denying her graceful waistline.

“I love family times. Especially when every Singaporean celebrates our motherland’s birthday as a family,” Jacelyn captioned this cheerful photo. A massive tote and top-tucked-into-mid-length-shorts translate to full-on mummy mode, but Jacelyn looks as svelte and sweet as ever.

Ever the fitness junkie, Jaime got ready for a game of squash in coral (close enough to red) and white layers. If anyone can pull off National Day-themed workout clothes, it’s her.

How fitting is it to watch Army Daze 2 and support Singapore’s well-loved theatre scene on National Day? To top it off, Noah and Elizabeth Boon dressed up to the nines in red and white, him in a smart varsity jacket and her in an off-the-shoulder crop top and maxi skirt.

Mad about plaid: Calvert Tay and Kelly Poon

Classic plaid is a closet workhorse that works for nearly every occasion, including National Day. Calvert left his plaid shirt unbuttoned casually over a white tee and shorts, while Kelly went for tartan chic with cropped flairs and a studded bag.
