Natural Style Baju Kurung With Smart Tudung or Hijab

My Islamic clothing roses


Beautiful baju kurung Islamic costume with tudung or hijab, a traditional costume worn by Muslim as well as non-Muslim women in Malaysian, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei, the ideal modest look - comfortable but pretty.

If you are in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore or Brunei, you are bound to notice many women dressed in a long tunic, paired with matching sarong and a lot of time complete with gorgeous style of tudung or hijab. This is the baju kurung, traditional costume of the Malay women that blends seamlessly with the multi-racial population of the countries.

Baju kurung is a traditional outfit comprising a loose-fitting blouse and a sarong. The top of the baju kurung is similar to the style of kameez or kurta or long tunic. A traditional sarong is a long straight skirt with folds on either the right or the left side of the sarong.

The costume is both aesthetically pleasing and complied with Islamic tradition, covering all of the body except for the hands and feet. The attire also comes with embroidery on the sleeves, hem and neckline, which is completely suitable for formal wear.

The term baju kurung comes from a Malay language which can be translated loosely into 'confined dress'. The style in baju kurung is very simple- a loose blouse with rounded neckline and a slit in front that held together with a single button or brooch. Both men and women can wear the outfit, but the men wear the blouse with pants along with a shorter version of the sarong folded around the hips called kain samping.

Baju kurung is made of a range of fabrics, but light cottons and polyester remain the most popular for everyday use. These materials are suitable in these tropical countries. More luxurious fabrics such as songket (traditional gold or silver embroidered material), silks, brocades, organza and lace are reserved for special occasions such as Eid, wedding or formal events.

The contemporary baju kurung is a highly versatile costume, worn by almost every woman in these South-East Asia countries, from school children to government servants, corporate figures and royal families. It is an outfit that blend effortlessly in these multi-cultural countries. It is not uncommon to see non-Muslim and other races in these countries dressed up in baju kurung as its fluid lines offer easy movement and a refreshing alternative to the less comfortable and breathy attire in these warm countries.

The traditional and modern baju kurung is a must for Muslim women and sometimes for non-Muslim as well celebrating Eid and Muslim wedding. This traditional and Islamic clothing reflects the grace of the Malay woman which has withstood the test of time over the centuries.
