We may only be going to a small barbecue, get-together or New Year’s Eve gathering (a bit depressing, we know), but let’s not forget to dress up! Whether it’s a colourful top or a bit of nice bling, you’ll feel so much better about yourself. And you’ll shine!
Scarves, shawls and more
Forest has both cashmere and merino wool shawls, and scarves made from mulberry silk. For this festive season, we think these little scarf tops are perfect for the Singapore climate. The fashion brand also offers brooches and scarf rings, if you want to wear an accessory. They all make lovely Christmas gifts and are super light to post overseas if you need to! There’s free shipment worldwide for purchases above $238, with a complimentary gift box.
All the products on offer are environmentally friendly, and 10 percent of profits from the Forest website are donated to PA Nepal to contribute to the care and support of child dependents of Nepalese convicts.

Many designs are available in either rose gold, silver or gold, so there’s something for everyone, and every outfit. You can shop online or at one of the five locations in Singapore, including Orchard Road, Bugis Junction and VivoCity.
Be Cool & Comfy
If your festive celebration will involve plenty of standing around, you’ll need your footwear to be both cool and comfortable. Fly Flot shoes have these two needs covered, thanks to their anti-shock sole cushions – the sole takes on the shape of your foot so it’s super supportive. They’re also so soft and light that you won’t notice you’re wearing them!
Fly Flot shoes are available in-store at Raffles City, Wheelock Place, OG People’s Park, and from the company warehouse in Marymount. You can also order from the website, which includes some handy tools to ensure you get the right fit, including measuring charts, tables showing different country sizes and more (flyflot.com.sg/pages/find-the-rightshoe-size-for-you).
