How To Style The Muslimah Jumpsuits
Jumpsuits either come sleeveless or with long sleeves. But fret not, because you can add the sleeves yourself by wearing a top underneath. If you want to dress up, wear a fancy bell-sleeved top, if you want an office-appropriate look, layer your jumpsuit with an oxford shirt or if you’re feeling casual, wear a simple, long-sleeved top.
Tip: Make sure the jumpsuit is loose to avoid any bulges caused by the top underneath.
Check out these layering tops: UNIQLO Striped Boat Neck Long Sleeve T-shirt Shirt, Polo Ralph Lauren Classic Stripe Oxford Shirt, KODZ Long Sleeve Top with Black Trimming and VERO MODA Chris Long Sleeve Midi Top.
If you have a sleeveless jumpsuit, but not a fan of the layering trend, we’ve got another solution for you! Cover your naked arms with a jacket, such as blazers, bomber jackets, cardigans, tweed jackets or denim jackets. They are both comfy and stylish at the same time.
Jackets to look out for: MANGO Tweed jacket, Izabel London Black Jacket, Only Denim Jacket, DOTTI Bomber Jacket, BAJUFOUNDRY Long Cardigan
Whether you add a thick or thin belt, leather or fabric, silver or gold, buckle or not buckle, accessorising a jumpsuit with an waist belt gives your OOTD extra attitude!

How To Style The Reinvented Baju Kurung
Due to its old heritage and long tradition, the baju kurung is often considered too traditional and too modest. Transform your ancient kurung into a modern, playful outfit. Use this guide to help you modernise your baju. Especially as a young muslim woman, you are trapped between modesty, modernity and style. You want your outfit to look fashion-forward while still upholding your values and beliefs. The first step to perfectly styling your baju kurung is to find the ideal kurung design for yourself. Kurungs come in a vast array of designs, cuts, shapes, sizes and colours. The trick is finding the perfect cut and design that fits your body shape and enhances your silhouette. In the traditional sense, the kurung consists of a co-ord, or two-piece garment - a maxi skirt (reaching your ankle) and a straight-cut, long blouse without a collar. Nowadays, there are hundreds of different designs. One of them is the peplum design. This cut perfectly highlights and accentuates the wearer’s waist, making it seem slimmer. Choose from a traditional peplum cut and asymmetrical cut, and mix and match different materials and colours or patterns. Next off is the kurung moden - a super modern, sleek baju kurung style, originally first seen in the 1980s. This type fits closely to your body and makes you appear slender and slimmer. The design is minimalist, simple, yet elegant and sophisticated. These styles usually come in patterns and colourful prints. They also come in different sizes - choose from 1/4 sleeves and bell sleeves to oversized, long sleeves. Another crowd favourite is the fishtail kurung. The blouse of this design reflects the shape of a fishtail - short in the front and long in the back. Another reinvented classic is the Kurung Pesak Buluh. The skirt part of the design features side pleats and looks flattering on any muslimah. The blouse features a straight cut and two side wings, or ‘pesak’. This type of baju kurung is made for all body types and shapes. Now that you have decided on your baju kurung design, you have to decide on your preferred colour palette and patterns. Turn heads in a colourful, patterned kurung or stay down to earth in a simple, solid-coloured one. A solid-coloured kurung in black or white can go a long way. Exude elegance and confidence in an emerald green or black kurung in a sleek and minimalist design in a luxurious fabric like silk, satin or chiffon. Pleats or a straight cut give your kurung an extra lift. Furthermore, you can look equally stunning and sophisticated in a lace embroidered kurung. Opt for a lace kurung in monochrome to keep the look simple, yet elegant. Of course you can also experiment with prints and patterns. With the two-piece garment you can mix and match your top and bottom. You can get your top in a patterned design, while keeping your skirt plain and simple, or vice versa. Alternatively, you can opt for a completely patterned ensemble for a stand-out look. Think outside the box - from florals and geometric prints to stripes and polka dots, let your imagination run loose. Moreover, opt for a kurung in metallic colours and embellishments for special occasions such as weddings, Raya or other festivities. In this colour palette, you will definitely turn heads. Furthermore, get a kurung in a solid colour with appliqués like lace, gold or other embroideries. Appliqués look especially stunning in an asymmetrical flow. This is flattering to your body shape and looks stunning. Now that you have decided your type and colour of your baju kurung, it is time to play with accessories. Retain your modesty and look stylish in a beautiful head scarf. The hijab is the perfect accessory and complements any kurung. Opt for a shawl that reflects the style and colour of your outfit. Spice up your outfit with a vibrant-coloured shawl or keep your outfit simple with a solid-coloured one. Another way to accessorise your traditional outfit is adding a pretty necklace, ring or bracelet. A stunning, stand-out necklace can go a long way. Adding a statement necklace to your baju will jazz up your modest ensemble. As the statement necklace is eye-catching enough, there is no need to accessorise further. However, if you prefer subtle necklaces, feel free to add bracelets, too. Look out for stand-out rings in stunning designs, colours and cuts. Rings can definitely transform your outfit into a stylish and modern look. So, choose wisely! Furthermore, if your baju doesn’t have any appliqués, you can add them yourself. From attachable bows and lace appliqués to brooches and embellishments, adding one of these to your baju will surely turn it into a one-of-a-kind outfit. Of course you can also accessorise your outfit with a nice handbag and the right pair of shoes. A good handbag can make or break your outfit. Choose your bag according to the occasion. For formal events, opt for a sleek clutch bag in an elegant design and colour palette. For daytime events, opt for satchels or small tote bags. Make sure your bag is big enough to fit all your necessities but small enough not to overshadow your baju kurung. In addition, opt for a pair of shoes that work well with your baju and handbag. From flat shoes and ballerinas to high heels and peep toes, there are no limitations to footwear. Go for elegant high heels or heeled sandals for evening events and flat shoes for daytime occasions. Make sure to keep your footwear subtle and simple - let your kurung be the centre of attraction.
