Need a baju raya idea? Check this out: Modern kurung in songket prints!
So, the heat is rising as you’re caught in the swing of that old familiar baju raya hunt. To help you locate a style or look that you can wear come Hari Raya 2017 as per usual, I’m at your disposal, with today’s post serving as a quick fashion inspo if you’re into modern kurung rendered in songket motifs.
Going straight into the Butik Sireh Pinang songket kurung collection, you will see that it comes in 9 colors altogether. In this post, I show 5 to tease but if you like what you see, you can check out the rest. The label makes modern ethnic pieces quite easy to wear as this particular collection is made of English cotton, ensuring comfort and breathability as temps climb steadily here in tropical Malaysia. And if you’re one to have a high internal body temperature, this one is a must-consider.
The prints as made clear by the name are inspired by the traditional songket. The repetitive print design is fuss-free that even a minimalist can easily fall for the look. The blouse comes in the traditional round neck with a keyhole front and a hook fastening. The long maxi skirt stays true to the traditional baju kurung design, with the trademark side pleat detail.

You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female’. — Erin McKean
