3 Traditional Costumes I Would Love to Wear

I was supposed to attend a charity event and the dress code is Batik sometime ago. Too bad it was cancelled, I was actually looking forward to play dress up with a traditional costume. I remember doing such fashionable and fun thing was when I was in primary school where I wore Japanese Kimono complete with a small pillow tied behind my back for a Girl Scout dance presentation.

Here are other traditional costumes I would love to wear:

1) BARO'T SAYA

Baro't Saya is a traditional Filipino blouse and skirt ensemble which is Philippine's unofficial national dress. I wore one during Linggo ng Wika (Philippine National Language Week) when I was in secondary school. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo taken for keepsake.

2) KEBAYA

 For those who are not familiar, Kebaya is a traditional blouse-dress that originates from Indonesia and is worn by women in numerous South East Asian countries including Singapore and The Philippines. Over the years, Kebaya has greatly influenced the world of modern fashion. The lace dresses that women love to wear these days are a good example of Kebaya influence.

3) BAJU KURUNG
Baju Kurung is a traditional Malay costume which loosely translated as "enclosed dress". Due to the upcoming Hari Raya Puasa, you can find extensive 2016 baju kurungs collection all over the internet. The end of the Holy month of Ramadan is usually celebrated by Malay families in Singapore by wearing baju kurung (women) and baju melayu (men) in the same hue whilst visiting a Mosque and subsequently visiting their parents and relatives' houses where delectable home-cooked Malay food awaits.

How about you? Which traditional costumes you wish to try?
