Hari Raya is that time of year where you get to flex all your new clothes that you bought on sale at your neighbourhood mall while trying to impress people that you meet once a year. Okay, maybe it’s not that sad – let’s try this again… Hari Raya is the most anticipated festive season for all Muslims as it’s a time where we get to see our favourite cousins, play with fireworks (err, sparklers), eat good food and have good company. Oh, and duit raya too!
It’s the time when ALL of your family members look fresh af as they sport their new clothes. But the thing is, most Raya clothes look exactly the same, so you need something to stand out and make a statement. It’s like, why balik kampung if you can’t impress everyone with your urban style? Or why leave the kampung in the first place if you’re just gonna hate on Wak Doyok? Geddit? Nevermind…
Still need some inspo? Well, we’ve compiled six outrageous fashion trends that you could perhaps pull of, scroll down to see:
1. Baju Melayu Black Panther
The tamest of ’em all, the Baju Melayu Black Panther. Several Indonesian online shops are hoping to cash in on Marvel Studios’ latest blockbuster hit by offering Black Panther-inspired baju koko or traditional shirts. Now you can collect your duit raya and fill yourself up with rendang looking fly like T’challa.
2. Baju Kurung Hello Kitty
Need something to top our fav boujee makcik, Datuk Seri Vida? Then this one is for you. Drown yourself in pink with Hello Kitty print all over you and you’ll definitely be the star in the room. Fashion designer, Yus Amina and Zabir Arfan created this for individuals who want to look unique and are obviously big fans of Miss HK.
3. Kurta Baju Kurung

This was also created by a local fashion designer, Waridi Hamdhan.
