Whether it’s a Gatsby-style grand party or a cosy condo gathering you’re attending, the question always remains: what to wear? Below you’ll find all kinds of party dress, cocktail dresses, party shoes and jewellery in Singapore, from bold statement pieces to playful smart-casual styles like jumpsuits – to help you dress to impress.
Comfort-first party shoes
You may not typically associate Fly Flot’s casual footwear with parties, but for down-to-earth folks who are looking for a good time, the brand’s comfort-first motto could be exactly what you need. Ladies’ leather slippers that feature sparkly to floral designs are snug options for a house party, along with sandals with signature Air Flot breathable lining. They’ll definitely bring you a bit of relief as you mingle throughout the night! Men aren’t left out either, as the Leather Man Moccasin style makes for versatile party shoes that can complement a suave suit or a simple T-shirt and jeans.

Customisable party accessories
Switch up your style for your festive celebrations! Forbidden Hill’s jewellery collections offer customisable styles that combine precious metals with coloured silks and gemstones. The signature Silk Bangles can be styled with more than 30 colours thanks to interchangeable silk slides that can be easily switched out. You can mix and match colours with different party dresses! The brand’s Gemstone Earrings are also customisable, with three different designs in more than a dozen interchangeable gemstones – from amazonite and amethyst, to emerald, moonstone, sapphire and more. The Ban Zu earrings feature a rhodium or 18k gold finish and are set with vibrant resins from Imperial Blue to Jade Green. The pieces are designed locally, then crafted in the region. Show off some new bling at your next cocktail party!
Trendy & eco-friendly evening wear
If you’re looking for trendy party wear that’s also conscious of its environmental impact, Talk of Town at Tanglin Mall is where it’s at. This Danish fashion brand has a passion for prints, colours and a flattering fit. The party dresses are made from high-quality faux satin silk that’s not only wrinkle-resistant and travel-friendly, but lightweight and cool on the body. They can be machine washed and require much less water than the likes of cotton fibres. The result? A low CO2 footprint that reflects the brand’s sustainable ethos. If you’re looking for a European or North American party dress, there’s a wide vareity here. Plus, you’ll find the brand’s own in-house demi-fine jewellery brand, so you can make a statement with your eco-friendly party wear!
