13 Online Stores To Buy Matching Baju Kurung For The Family This Hari Raya

Baju kurung family sets for Hari Raya Puasa 2024


Festive occasions like Hari Raya are the time of the year that we get to go all out with wacky group pictures and swaggy outfits. With the celebrations happening next week, it’s almost time to get all dolled up for your next family OOTD. Below are online stores with matching baju kurung so the entire family can pass the ‘fit check during visiting.


Why do families wear matching outfits for Hari Raya Puasa?


Where and how this practice started is not clear, but you have to admit that nothing screams togetherness and unity like marching out all together in clothes made from the exact same material.

Some sources say that it stems from families in the past saving cost and making outfits for everyone, and even the curtains in the house, from a single bolt of cloth. Others claim it was a means for well-to-do families to demonstrate their wealth – where others made do with hand-me-downs, they had the means to buy the same new outfits for everyone in the family.

Regardless, this practice puts a cute new spin on “cut from the same cloth”, with the added bonus that you have an easier task of identifying which family group a lesser-known relative belongs to this Hari Raya Puasa, which falls on 10th April 2024.


How to wear baju kurung?


In Malaysia, baju kurung is the ethnic Malay dress that females wear, while men don baju melayu; in Singapore, there is no distinction – they’re all broadly categorised as baju kurung. It’s said to have originated in Indonesia, with the term translated as ‘concealing dress’.

The female version typically sees a loose-fitting blouse with long sleeves, paired with a wraparound skirt known as a sarong. Traditionally, these are not meant to be tight-fitting, as the female form should be concealed. The outfit is completed with a tudung, or headscarf, though this is optional.

As for the men, the outfit consists of a shirt with pants, with a short sarong known as kain samping that you can wear over or under the top – these are respectively known as the teluk belanga and cekak musang styles. During formal occasions such as celebrations and prayers, Malay men will have to don their songkok, which is a cone-shaped hat usually made of black cotton, felt, or velvet.
