I was reading an article recently about how Singapore was so proud to be placed at #8 in one of the most fashionable cities in the world. The article, had high-and-mighty fashion people questioning if we really “deserved” it, since a lot of us walk around in tank tops, shorts and flip flops. This wouldn’t be a big deal normally but I have been reading and hearing time and time again about how Singaporeans can’t dress, they have no style, some even calling it “low class” just ’cause we happen to like the whole tank-top-and-shorts combo. Enough is enough!
It’s very simple: The weather! People, the humidity level here is 90%! This place is an oven, I am surprised no one is walking around naked. Of course cities like New York or Tokyo have some seriously fashionable people… they can wear proper clothes and do something called LAYERING. If we layer here we’d all drop dead. Sure, there is a time and place for everything, and shorts and tank tops are definitely too casual for some occasions… but seriously, for everyday wear, I don’t see what’s the big deal?
What do you guys think?
Tank top and shorts… a crime against humanity.
