Hari Raya Puasa falls on 13 May this year and it’s a special day where Muslims end their time of fasting and enjoy festive delicacies with their friends and family. Although celebrations will be more low-key this year due to the pandemic, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to deck yourself in your finest attire and look your best as you commemorate this occasion on a positive, uplifting note with your loved ones — be it over a quick, cosy lunch date or a Zoom call.
Here are seven fashion items you can consider adding to cart in time for Hari Raya Puasa.
Malaysian hijab brand TudungPeople’s limited-edition Oriental collection (MYR159/~USD38 each) features elegant and distinctive designs that are representative of the East Asian culture, such as peonies, chrysanthemums and Far East ornaments. Made from satin silk fabric, these scarves will beautifully complement your Raya outfits.
A good quality inner headscarf should not only help keep your tresses neatly hidden but also offer you all-day comfort. dUCk's Pointed inner (SGD19/MYR55/~USD14) is thoughtfully made with anti-bacterial and odour control technology and comes with a tie-back feature for added grip and support. Plus, its pointed top also helps provide its wearer with a face “slimming” effect.
Style comes in every size, and Zalora’s very own modest wear label is proof that all women deserve to celebrate their bodies and wear what makes them feel the most beautiful. The label’s Hari Raya collection (from SGD19.90/~USD14) has a dedicated range just for plus-sized women and it offers an assortment of designs such as floral-printed kebaya, blouses with puff sleeves and vivid-hued wrap dresses.
Add a subtle touch of glam to your ensemble with ethical jewellery brand Soko's Asili ring set (USD88), which is handcrafted by artisans in Kenya. Made from 24K gold-plated brass, this geometric-inspired set consists of three rings that you can wear individually across each of your fingers, or stacked together on one finger.
With its sleek metallic hardware and classic perforated design, the light purple Erlissa top handle bag from Aldo (MYR269/~USD65) is a chic, versatile accessory that you can easily carry as a cross-body too whenever you need to go hands-free.
Heels have the power to elevate your look — literally. These blue croc-effect cylindrical heel mules from Charles & Keith (SGD53.90/USD53) are designed with a low heel so that you can rock them all day. Given their minimalistic and classic design, they will pair well with a variety of outfits too — whether it’s a romantic, pastel-hued baju kurung or with jeans and a button-down shirt.
Celebrating Hari Raya with your loved ones over Zoom? Consider opting for a chic loungewear set that’ll earn you style points without compromising on comfort. The REKA by Adrianna Yariqa Kimono Set Terbit (MYR235/~USD175) stars an open-front, long-sleeved cardigan and a pair of wide-legged trousers — both of which feature a fun, joyful print and pleated details.
