National Day is just around the corner, and although your relationship with the country you deem home may be more of a love-hate affair, there’s no reason as to why you shouldn’t revel in your patriotism for the occasion. Other than getting into the collective festive spirit, dressing for the occasion also makes for a great excuse to flex your sartorial audacity: Braving an all-red look, doing a white out, and maybe if you’re used to gravitating towards safer colour palettes, throwing in some reds into your whites.

As far as holiday themes go, it’s undeniable that the red-white combo can be the most unflattering of colour pairings. But when done right, they can be the tasteful attention grabbers worth Phil Oh or Scott Schuman’s street style snaps. Or if your last name spells Jenner or Hadid, the headlines.

Add in a dash of street style edginess through the season’s hottest collectibles — such as Bella Hadid’s party choker and red-tinted lens, or Kendall Jenner’s Off-White top. Swipe through the slides to see how the best style savants out there — from model Adwoa Aboah in a fisherman vest to a Milanese fashion maven sporting the latest Gosha Rubchisnkiy track pants — prove that you can look patriotic while maintaining your cool rep. And not passing off as a walking flag.
