Baju Kurung

Baju kurung comes in two-piece: a long-sleeve top worn over a long skirt. It is a traditional Malay costume but it is not outdated at all!

It is not only a popular choice among Malay ladies in Malaysia, it is also worn by some non-Malay ladies?

The reason for its popularity is probably because it is super comfortable to wear,

it is also versatile and demure,

and it makes the wearer looks feminine and graceful.

 

Traditional costume don’t have to be boring? You can find many Baju Kurung nowadays that is very stylish but yet does not lose its classic features.

This modern style of Baju Kurung uses chiffon to give it a see-through look.

The embroidery on it makes it looks so artsy and feminine.

I personally loves the cuffs that have a little puffy design and the little button?

Long Dress/ Maxi

The purpose of most of the Malay traditional outfits is to conceal the body.

Hence, they all have long sleeves and long skirt to cover the body and limbs.

In modern days, many Malay women would not let that purpose restrict them in expressing their beauty.

? it is very important that we respect the cultures of one another as we live in a multiracial country of Malaysia.
