Say Yes to the Raya Look
Raya is just a few weeks away! Whether you’re out shopping or getting your outfits online, searching for the perfect Raya outfit is one of the fun activities we look forward to every year.
Will you go with a more traditional route in 2021, or shall we shake things up a bit with a more fashion forward look?
Local designers wow us every year with their beautiful Raya creations. So, we’re always spoilt for choice – it’s only a matter of time to find that one outfit that calls out to you.
We’ve put together a few style options here for you to feast your eyes on and help you make your final decision:
1. Elegant Simplicity
A simple yet elegant Raya outfit is perfect for those who want to stand out while keeping their outfit effortless. Go for uncomplicated patterns with perhaps just one design element to be a focal point. Those who prefer a little drama can opt for bold colours – hot reds, bright yellows, deep blues – to stand out from the crowd. Either way, you’re sure to be the envy of your cousins at the family dinner. As for men, go for simple, classic and sleek Baju Melayu options. Just choose a colour to follow your family’s theme for the festivities.
2. Cross-Cultural Chic
Cross-culture designs are common in countries like Malaysia. Living in a diverse society, stylists and designers frequently blend elements of 2 or more cultures to create avant garde designs. Indian design elements are frequently included on Malay traditional outfits to create unique prints and styles, while Mandarin collars are seen quite often on newer designs. Outfits such as this light-yellow number with a Mandarin collar and ball buttons is one example of the beautiful outcomes of blended cultures.
3. The Modern Malay
A trendy belt, peplum waist, daring prints – these are some of the more fashion forward looks for Raya. Combining modern styles with cultural outfits is an easy way to keep ahead of the fashion curve and inject some excitement into traditional wear. For men, standout colours and prints are trending, so try something new this year like the striped peach outfit below.
4. Kampung Class
Basic yet pretty fabric designs and minimal embellishment are the go-to elements for those who want to exude kampung class. Straight cuts and pretty edging let the wearer grab all the attention. Pair your outfit with bold accessories or keep it simple with muted colours – a perfect choice for colour-coordinating with the rest of the family.
