Fashion Friday: Ethnically Speaking

Friday, November 26, 2010


Prints are definitely a hit this year and so far we've seen an upsurge of florals, abstracts, vintage polka dots and safari patterns. What's hot right now? Ethnic prints. I see them everywhere from dresses to shoes. As much as I love my florals I'm always keen on trying something new. There are all kinds ethnic prints to choose from: Indian, African, Oriental, Malay batik and Middle Eastern, just to name a few. If an outfit might be too overpowering for you then focus on having ethnic accessories. You'll look chic and unique, for sure!

Chloe & Amina: Missing you two heaps!

bosnishmuslima: Thanks, got it from a mall in Malaysia =)

Smiley: Hijab belongs to my sis lol Thanks hun

Amalia: Shukran

Bitten: I combined my bangles with a bracelet because I love the charms on it =)

hijabi hippie hypo: I heard about the snow in London but trust me, Malaysia is wayyyy hot and humid. I went out for 10 minutes to take these photos and then I had to run back inside cos I was getting a headache from the heat.

RS: Us young Malay girls should use batik more. The West seem to appreciate it more than we do =P

Mrs. Handbag Addict: Thank you. Didn't realise that it does kinda look boho. I love the boho look, esp. Nicole Richie's style!

Nur: Yeah, ethnic prints are interesting. I think I might try to wear more of it this summer holiday. I bought my first square hijab a few days ago. InshaAllah will try to figure out ways to style it =)

Houda: Aww thank you, Houda. Good thing I have a sister to borrow hijabs from =P

Sorlisa: I agree. I liked the fact that the dress gave me complete coverage without me having to layer it up. It is really warm here in Malaysia!

Feda: Thank you!

Hi Shahirah, I just stumbled upon your blog and your fashion sense is very inspiring. Btw, you look great in this dress esp the print. Looks a little like pua kumbu design which I love so much

Shahirah Elaiza said...

Thank you Nadia. Welcome to my blog. Yes I think the print is inspired by the pua kumbu, good job on spotting it!
