Awesome Baju Kurung and Other Looks to Pull Off This Hari Raya
To think New Year was just a mere 5 months before us. Syawal is almost upon us and it’s never too early to anticipate the festivities with your loved ones. It’s always best to be ahead of time, in order to avoid last minute shopping or worse, a wardrobe clash with a relative when you go visiting.
With Muslimah fashion being so contemporary, so it’s a good idea to be on the lookout for the latest trends. Here are some of the fashion looks that we’ve found to inspire you for Raya festivities.
Elegant Floral Blue
Spice this piece of a simple blue dress with a monochrome headscarf. Conveniently, it comes with a belt for that wraps itself snuggly around the waistline of this outfit. This body length skirt extends to the ankles, accentuating the female body line as you strut to your next house to visit.
It also comes in black decorated with pink flowers. The dress is made of light polyester fabric. As the material suggests, it functions as a light piece so you don’t have to be tucked under unbreathable fabrics while you travel from house to house during Hari Raya. You’ll be able to find this on Lazada for S$18.81.
Puffy Sleeves and Lace Galore
This sweet little number looks like a modern Baju Kedah, with its thigh length top. The elegant lace overlay makes this piece a great choice for those who want something more luxurious this Raya. Pair it with a clutch and opened toed heels for a look that is bound to impress.
The dress is easy to wear, with a zip closing in at the back. It’s also available in dark green, black and off-white. This dress from Lubna is available on Zalora for S$101.90.
Pretty in Flowing Pink
A floor length gown is the way to go this Raya, with lots of layered fabric in the front to create a soft and feminine feel. The dress is made of chiffon, which is a completely breathable fabric, suitable for our tropical weather. The wide skirt is perfectly comfortable for moving about so you won’t have to feel at all restricted.
Grab this pretty and flowing Baju Kurung at only S$20.48 at Lazada.
Classic Draped Baju Kurung
Made specially by designer Nurita Harith, this classic Baju Kurung features lace sleeves and lined chiffon. The front portions are draped with a similarly light fabric in order to highlight one’s body shape. This charmingly simple modern Baju Kurung is a perfect harmony of minimalism yet pronounced of an outfit.

Simple Two Tone
In order to create a slimming effect for yourself, fashion experts advise some vertical lines on your outfit. This is exactly what this dress does. It’s deceptively simple in design, but will do wonders for your overall look. The sleeves are decorated with some embroidery, giving this dress a subtle elegance.
