Need a baju kurung that mixes the modern and traditional seamlessly?
Is your search for the perfect baju raya an endless journey of staring at the screen until your eyeballs start to stick to your lids? I feel you. It can get hard with the variety of choices we’re exposed to these days with the Internet at our disposal. But great news! I am here help to make it easier for you by rounding up distinct raya-worthy styles that you might just like.
For this post, I’ve gathered 3 modern baju kurung styles that manage to remix traditional and modern touches together. Each is distinct in their own way but all of them retain the look of a kurung set you’ll be glad to wear even after Hari Raya 2017 is over.
This baju kurung has a blouse that is rendered in the traditional Kedah crop style, but the hem is cut in a modern high-low style, exposing the front part of the skirt to give the illusion of height. The high-low hem has a buckle detail for a touch of unexpected sparkle that’s pretty edgy. The mid-rise long skirt has a back pleated detail for ease of movement and I like how the skirt is narrow in shape instead of a flare.
This wonderful Zuco Fashion kurung iteration utilizes swirly abstract motif that goes all over the top and long skirt. It’s called the mullet baju kurung creatively to reflect the volume that is concentrated on the tail-end of the skirt that is tiered gathers. Again, I do love the narrow long skirt design of this mod kurung. The boat neckline and the sleeve style of the blouse are both eye-catching features that I personally adore.
I love the geometric motif on this baju kurung. The subtly flared sleeves and front criss-cross detailing make this midi kurung a stunningly memorable piece. The long skirt is designed narrow up until the knee zone and then it flares out. If you prefer a certain flare in your skirt, then this might appeal to you.
So, ladies, which baju kurung style is your favorite? Share below – I’d love to know!
