We all need lots of Raya clothes foreseeing the many open house invitations all month long. It’s my favourite time of the year, eat eat eat and dress up in our traditional clothes. My only issue with traditional clothes is that I can only wear it to formal occasions, like a wedding or something. So spending a lot on these designer kurungs etc, not that it’s bad (if you can afford it, by all means go for it!!) but I prefer to give myself value for money. By value for money, not exactly looking for the cheapest one out there, but I’m looking for pieces that can be worn as separates. I can wear the skirt with a cardigan, I can wear the top with pants, etc, and of course, I can wear them together for another formal occasion that needs us to dress up. That way, my wardrobe is happy, I’m happy and Dean’s wallet is happy too.

Nurita Harith is probably one of the best ones when it comes to this. All her pieces are thought through to incorporate this kind of modern day versatility and I just loooooveee her prints, they’re ridiculous. Tuck in if you’re confident, tuck out for a more classic look or be casual to wear them as separates. Here, I’m wearing one of them as a top!

Which one would you choose?


I’m wearing the shirt from Cara Kurung from Nurita Harith, scarf from dUCk, belt from FreeFlow, all FashionValet. Pants from Balenciaga, bag from Celine.
