As you may have noticed in the recent weeks, the sun is getting more glaring and the temperature is slowly crawling up. Yes we are approaching the hot summer seasons in Singapore!
Contrary to what most Singaporeans always say that Singapore is hot ALL YEAR ROUND, like c’mon, November – February are like one of the coldest months in the year. And honestly the hot months are from April, and the fecking-hot-I-want-to-melt months from July to October.
But anyway I’m not here to debate about Singapore’s climate. The thing I like about the “summer” months of Singapore is how you can play with prints and colors in your outfits! Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you dress in plain ‘o denim short and cropped tees. There is so many combinations you can work with. So if you want to look effortlessly fabulous, you need to stock up these Summer essentials prints and colors for your wardrobe!
After all, you can wear ’em for months since SG is hot 3/4 of the year. And if you’re a blogshop owner, do consider stocking these up for the coming months.

Instead of an eye-popping-in-your-face-shade of yellow, this year’s palette features a softer custard yellow. I would say this shade compliments well with ladies with darker skin tone. For fairer ladies, you’ll like to check out the next 2 colors…
