Fashionista NOW: Modern Kebaya Style Ideas For Raya 2016

Modern Kebaya Style Ideas For Raya 2016

Kebaya is awesome and you know it!

If you’re interested in wearing the traditional blouse-dress combo that originates from Indonesia and is worn by ladies in Indonesia, Malaysia, Burma, southern Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, Brunei, southern Philippines and North Korea, then you best eyeball this post really quick.

As a fan of kebaya who had worn the more traditional iterations of them years ago, I’m super happy to report that the newer modern breeds are looking much more appealing as they’re designed to appeal to the current fashion-loving ladies who have their eyes set on the latest trends. Seleksi Akma’s modern kebaya selection, for instance, uses bold colored blouse with pleated flare sleeves and front zip fastening ( as opposed to retro button enclosure ) and a long skirt rendered songket-like in metallic floral motif.

VERCATO’s kebaya selection, on the other hand, sticks to a more mod, minimalist color and style palette. It has narrow sleeves, lace accents on the blouse and a flowy wrap-style long skirt. It comes in solid wearable colors of grey, green, navy and light yellow.

Which kebaya designs you choose shall depend on your current style preference but both are quite charming pieces that show how traditional garments can be made new again with the use of certain hot on-trend elements, like the use of a neutral ( or loud one with pattern ) color and strategic design statement that appeals to the crowd of the fashion-aware in today’s world.
