Now that travel is back on the agenda and holidays are on the horizon, it’s a good time to buy sandals and new dresses in Singapore. Life in a city with year-round hot weather requires plenty of ladies’ beachwear in flowy styles. So it may be time to upgrade your resort wear, even if you’re not jetting off on a plane. And never underestimate the importance of a flattering swimsuit and summery accessories to complete your look!
For ladies’ beachwear you can don on and off the sand, White Ginger has you covered. You’ll find plenty of stylish ideas in-store – from cute and casual to dressy and elegant. When packing for a trip, strategic pieces that are multi-purpose will free up much-needed space in your suitcase. Inherently feminine, the strapless St Tropez dress in a dazzling floral print is perfect poolside attire. And when the temperature drops, this versatile style doubles as a full-length skirt. It’s the ideal vacation piece.
A classic white dress is the kind of wardrobe chameleon that can go from day to night with nothing more than a swipe of red lipstick and a heel. It also lays the foundation for a summer accessory like a piece of colourful jewellery or a show-stopping hat. With beach totes and sandals, clothing and jewellery, White Ginger is a great place to go for dresses in Singapore. It has everything you’ll need for a summer in the sun.
