Celebrating Hari Raya with the fam? Here's where you can pick up modest fashion for kids...
One thing we absolutely love about Singapore is its multiculturalism. That means we get to enjoy good food, exciting events, colourful decorations and home visits most of the year round. If you’ve been invited to an event or home visit during Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Hari Raya Puasa, then you’ll want the right threads for the occasion. Although wearing a kurung isn’t strictly necessary, it’s probably best the kids (and you) don’t rock up in spaghetti straps. Remember to keep bottoms covered with the hemline below the knee and avoid revealing necklines. Lucky for you, we’ve found some of the cutest Raya fashion for kids for all your fashion inspo needs. Best get those online orders in stat, to have them delivered before Hari Raya!
This Malaysia-based store has just the thing to lift your spirits during the monsoon season in June. Shop from the new Pelangi collection for bright colours and patterns over trousers and kurungs or, for a more subtle look, pop on a plain blouse and a velvet mermaid skirt. Sizes come in age one to 16 years old and you can mix and match for the perfect pop of colour to suit the kiddos.
