Singapore’s biggest celebration of the year brings about a whole host of joyous events, bringing to life the spirit of the nation as we celebrate our independence once again.

Observed on August 9, this annual event always sees the city dress for the occasion, with flags lining the buildings, patriotic songs pervading the airwaves, people kitted out in red and white, and of course, the National Day Parade (NDP).

National Day themes are always a call for solidarity and this year's is no different. "Onward As One" is all about looking ahead with confidence and optimism, and building a shared future together. It shows in this year's logo, which depicts a lion's head gazing towards five starts and the horizon. It's emblematic of the values we should be keeping close to our hearts as we grow and advance.

However you may choose to celebrate, finding the right outfit is key for the whole family! We’ve got your boys covered with a few of our top outfit picks.
