Style Sunday: Ethnik Batik

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Pullman Hotel, Putrajaya



I realise I haven't done a Style Sunday post in ages!
Anyway, I've been resisting the 'turban' style because I can be a non-conformist like that ;) 
I tried it for fun but I'm not sure if I'd wear it on a daily basis because I prefer being simple when it comes to the hijab. 
Nevertheless, I think the 'turban' or African head wrap style totally complements ethnic prints such as batik.

Hope you guys had an awesome weekend.

Dam girl this is a gorgeous outfit! Is that Batik native to Malaysia? Love the turban look on you, that color is so fresh! I know what you mean about not wanting to conform ;) It seems hijaby fashion land has started to look very similar? Love the background too!

Thank you for the kind comments everyone =)) I think the style is definitely worth a try but is perhaps not suitable for a very hot day! Not sure if the batik is native to Malaysia but batik print sure is beautiful. I'm proud of my Asian heritage!

Hi. For the batik, did you just tie up a kain batik, or it's a ready made batik skirt. If its a ready made skirt, mind sharing where you got it? It's super nice! I find it such a hassle to tie &wrap around pareo & sarong D

Thanks!

@Zara A, yay! you finished your finals - hope you did great in them inshaa Allah xox

@KC, it's not a ready-made batik skirt. It's like a pareo. But I think you can easily get it tailor-made or use one of your baju kurung / kebaya kain as a skirt as well =)
