Despite the absence of physical rallies, GE has never been this exciting. In this age of “internet elections”, the voting vibes have ironically been brought to our doorstep.
On 30 June 2020, we saw our party nominees taking centre stage in the spotlight and caught their one-minute of fame in their brief “thank you” speeches. An impertinent but apparent observation is the strong party allegiance from the symbolic colours of their attire.
Likewise, as compatriots, we can bring the election party up a notch by professing our faith to the party we love without conforming to their uniform fashion sense—predictable polo-tee and basic shirts? No way. With our deep devotion in place, come and have your pick at these suggested fashion attires that keep you on the safe side of style while proclaiming your undying devotion to a political party and exuberate your personality.
Let’s start with our ruling party, the People’s Action Party, and their iconic white top-to-toe outfit.
“The party uniform of white-on-white also signifies the purity and the incorruptibility of its members.”
If you are sporty like Mr. Baey Yam Keng, you can consider a dry fit, sweat-wicking jersey to complement your active lifestyle. What a convenient choice; you can “wear” your support even as you go for a run or a light workout.
The final stretch of her term was a madhouse. To celebrate the end of Miss Teo’s stint as the Manpower Minister, you can consider throwing on a white jumpsuit. The outfit is edgy and detailed with utility-zip. Besides, it can be paired with simple accessories to give it a classy appearance. On a side note, doesn’t this fashion style give a rugged, slightly masculine, yet sleek look?

The blue team has been growing with many competent budding candidates introduced during this election. As Miss Sylvia Lim said in her GE2015 speech:
“The white clouds can be blown here and blown there, they can change their shape, they can turn grey or even black. But the blue sky will always be there.”
White versus blue—you get the drift.
Currently, this is what the entourage of Workers’ Party candidates and their campaign volunteers look like.
With the revamped leadership under Mr. Pritam Singh, this is what the WP and their supporters could potentially look like.
The party polo tees and colours bear an uncanny resemblance to the apparels we buy as National Day draws near—at least for me. However, you can avoid looking less of a cliche and more trendy with these outfits.
Otherwise, forming a sea of red with Arsenal jerseys works too. (Sorry Man United fans.)
It’s hard to miss the Reform Party—their logo is a 12-ray sun and yellow is the party’s colour.
Though it’s a less conventional shade, there are a few creative ways you can support their cause by swagging in their recognisable yellow on your nails or on your collar!
