Why Singaporeans Pay Little Attention to Their Dress

by Deng Qilin

Singaporeans pay little attention to their dress. The pedestrians you see on the street always dress in a simple and plain way. Colorful or chic style dresses are seldom seen even among girls. Single-color T-shirts plus shorts may be the mainstream dress style both for girls and boys.

And looking down to the feet, almost of them are wearing sandals regardless of age, gender, and height. Even on Orchard Road where most of the famous brands are located, such kind of dress is regular.

The weather always helps to choose the types of clothes for locals. Singapore is located in the tropical area where it is hot and rainy all the year round. Years of living under such weather conditions, the general public will definitely prefer comfortable and breathable clothes that will not be some kind of 'chain' and make them feel free.

The person who previously pays a lot of attention to his clothes will change his opinion when living long in such kind of hot weather such as that in Singapore.

Also, different kinds of dress represent different cultures and different requirements and understanding for life. Industry and thrift are Singapore's statecraft. From government agencies to the universities and to the ordinary corporate bodies, all of them emphasize efficiency, thrift, and eliminating extravagant waste.

If you pay attention to the architectural style and the interior decorations, you may find their simple styles. Even details of daily life, such as how water runs from the faucet and paper recycling, represent the spirit of thrift.
