After a month of fasting and contemplation, it’s almost time for the full-on celebration of Hari Raya Puasa. But beyond the usual fellowship, feasting and forgiveness, how about adding a dash of fashion into the festivities?

While the traditional baju kurung remains unmatched in comfort and elegance, those who want to express themselves sartorially will find a treasure trove of options by Asian and international designers. The former, especially, excel in creating designs that are both sensitive to our warm climate and reflective of our cosmopolitan vibes. By blending their offerings with international fashion elements, your whole family is bound to make a statement with your fashion choices this holiday season.

LEVELLING UP THE FAMILY STYLE QUOTIENT

Hari Raya Puasa elevates the concept of matchy-matchy to new heights, with families ready to turn heads in their impeccably-coordinated outfits.

Batik specialist Ozel’s diverse range of handmade apparel and accessories guarantees you’ll stand out without being confined to monochromatic schemes. Its extensive selection of curated traditional and contemporary batik designs ensures that there’s something for every family member — including your house cat! For those with a discerning eye for fashion, Ozel offers customisation services to help you craft an exclusive ensemble tailored to your preferences. 

Similarly, PickADillyBaby also caters to the entire family’s wardrobe needs, focusing on solid colours. Its Dillys collection, crafted from 100% organic cotton, helps even the youngest members stay comfortable and chic, complete with personalised bibs and cuddly bunny toys.

FLATTERING FOR ALL SIZES

A champion of inclusivity, Se7en Flowers stocks designs in a diverse range of sizes up to 5XL. Its collection runs the gamut from pant sets and smock dresses to jumpsuits and sulam tops. No matter your style, whether you’re into colour-blocking or pairing prints, there’s something that will work for you. The label also has a nursing-friendly line, showcasing its commitment to practical, thoughtful design.

Se7en Flowers’ shop is located in Woodlands, but you can place orders via its Instagram account or visit its pop-up stores across locations such as Suntec City and SingPost Centre during this period.  Don’t forget to check out the latest tudung collection, Ummu, which features 25 distinct prints to give your outfit extra pizzazz.

CHIC IN ANY COLOURWAY

Elda is renowned for its flowy, effortlessly chic aesthetic, characterised by minimalistic tailoring and curated colour palettes.

Its ivory series, for instance, draws inspiration from the oversized trend, with relaxed silhouettes taking reference from the empire dress to keep things visually interesting. The versatile Lydia collection uses graphic floral prints across different items like camisoles, shawls and even a kimono top to exemplify understated elegance. Want something for the boys? The vibrant Nia design is a winning pick.

The brand offers free local shipping for orders over $100, making it easy to access their wide range of attractive offerings online.

A ONE-STOP SHOP FOR HIM AND HER

Blending traditional attire with modern pieces allows for a creative expression of style, letting you adhere to modesty with some clever combinations.

Khatam, a celebrated Malaysian brand with 11 stores and an online presence, showcases a mastery of integrating classic elements with urban fits. For instance, its Mansoor collection – particularly their range of men’s top with three-quarter sleeves – has a relaxed fit for optimal breathability and is designed around modern lifestyles. Its Samping collection, crafted from rich brocade, boasts a luxurious aesthetic — even when paired with snazzy sneakers. The label ships to Singapore, with free lifetime repair services included.

For contemporary options, Zalora is the go-to, offering endless possibilities for mixing and matching. Pick a flowy long-sleeved blouse to go with your baju skirt, or combine a traditional men’s shirt with slim-fit chinos for a look that stands out. With regular discounts offered on the site, both men and women can enjoy making fashion statements while optimising their shopping budgets.

ACCESSORISE WITH TRADITION AND TREND
