It’s the 2nd day of Eid al-Adha, and tummies are rumbling from anticipating the dishes that will be served at open houses. Some of us are probably invited to relatives’ houses to enjoy the festivities, but not all of us are blessed with the time to find the appropriate outfit to wear for the occasion. After spending so much on baju kurung for Eid al-Fitr, it makes sense that we have to cut down on our spending for baju kurung (guilty!).
But who says we can’t make do with what we currently have in our wardrobe? We have tonnes of baju kurung and even casual clothes. Also, did you know that you can mix and match both sets of clothes to make a fit so unique, you’ll be the main character at the event?
If wanting to be the shining star of Hari Raya Haji has piqued your interest, here are some baju kurung inspos that you should try this weekend.
Let’s start off with something simple that we’re pretty sure everyone has in their closet currently – cotton pesak and baju kebaya.
Cotton pesak, albeit a bit basic for some, can be so adorable when worn plainly. It doesn’t stand out as much but makes a huge statement for its simplicity. Plus, your inner Sharifah Amani from the movie ‘Sepet’ will come out and become the Orked that you’re meant to be this Eid al-Adha.
If plain cotton pesak is not your thing, opt for the alluring kebaya which makes you figure the star. It’s the most attractive form of baju kurung, so we have to assume everyone has one in their closet. The easiest fit to mix and match with any batik, and still look as stunning as ever. Simple, yet elegant describes baju kebaya perfectly.
Baju Kurung, But Make It Casual
Switch things up with your baju kurung by making it casual. A simple, yet elevated way to make your baju kurung more unique than it was before. Plus, do we actually need to go all out for Eid al-Adha when we will pretty much just be eating? We figured as much, so here are ways you can make your baju kurung – from the top to its skirt – more casual but chic.
Another Sharifah Amani inspo, where she wears her signature baju kurung cotton, but this time, with jeans! A simple top like cotton pesak can easily be worn over jeans to make it more modern. It’ll look as if you just put this together effortlessly and it’ll still make a statement at the festivity!
Kurung Skirt With A Top
Have an A-line skirt? Make it more casual chic by wearing a normal t-shirt over it. A plain t-shirt over a patterned skirt totally works for any occasion, even for a simple day out. Don’t let that skirt go to waste by being stuck in your wardrobe – use it to your advantage to level up your modest fashion game.
Turtleneck With Batik
Nothing says traditional more than batik. But if you want to make it more modern, put on a turtleneck and wrap that batik around it to look extra fierce for Eid al-Adha. It’s the easiest way to elevate a traditional batik and make it more contemporary.
