Stand out amongst the many baju Melayu moden you will see in the upcoming Raya with these simple baju Melayu moden styling tips!
First and foremost, we look at the baju Melayu moden itself. There are various types and designs for baju Melayu moden in Malaysia. As the centrepiece of your outfit, the design, colour, and style can significantly influence your whole look. For example, an all-black cekak musang baju Melayu moden will give off a classy and elegant vibe as opposed to a pastel blue teluk belanga baju Melayu moden.
