Fashionista NOW: Hari Raya 2014 Peplum Outfits Fashion Inspiration

The peplum trend is highlighted as one of the much loved designs for this year’s Eid fashion collections here in Malaysia.

Chantilly by Jovian Mandagie, a ready-to-wear Raya 2014 collection reveals the utilization of the peplum waist in sophisticated interpretaions thereby reworking the modern baju kurung and baju kebaya with the modern-day’s love interest with the flared waist adored by fashionable youth of this nation.

Along with the curve-accentuating shape — lace, beads, floral appliques and embroidery are used to add character into their very modern pieces.

Not to be missed, Melinda Looi’s Raya 2014 collection in collaboration with Diana Danielle also showcases the evidence of peplum decorating waistlines of her vibrant and youthful baju kurung modern.

If buying designer baju raya cuts a hole in your budget and you would like to save up instead of splurge, know that you can recreate your favorite designer look using affordable separates already in your closet or purchased from your local boutiques or online.

The two distinguishing features of the modern kurung made by our Malaysian fashion designers that seem to stand out and steal hearts, center upon a peplum style blouse and a fishtail (or mermaid) skirt.

While soft pastel hues have been a trending color palette for the past few years, you are invited to welcome vibrant color blocks for a celebratory unforgettable Raya look or keep it chic and minimalist with a monochromatic color scheme in black and white or cream.

Keeping in mind of your favorite colors, you can style up a look that has a printed statement like a batik sarong. Alternatively, your baju raya can be kept free of patterns with solid colored picks.

A peplum blouse is a versatile piece that can elevate the most casual of attires. It can be paired casually with jeans or trousers and dressed up with the right choice of skirt. Midi and maxi fishtail skirts are made to accompany the peplum top as is the midi pencil skirt for a look that screams retro.
