Lace baju kurung modern
1. Loveaisyah Classic French Lace Baju Kurung
A dreamy nude baju kurung modern will definitely turn heads! Made with french lace and lined with a soft satin lining, this Classic French Lace Baju Kurung (available on Loveaisyah) can be worn for Hari Raya or even for an upcoming wedding. It also comes with a black velvet tie and brooch to accentuate your waistline for a more flattering fit!
Style tip: Tie a low, sleek bun and swipe on a red lippy to tie the look together
2. Elang – 2020 Collection Baju Kurung
We love the relaxed and whimsical look of this Elang – 2020 Collection Baju Kurung (available on Owl By Nora Danish). Puff sleeves were in trend last year so it’s no surprise that modern baju kurungs adapted this into their designs too. The relaxed top is flanked by voluminous puffy lace sleeves that cuff at your wrists while the maxi length skirt comes with cute front buttons and a tiny slit around the ankles to show off your footwear!
Style tip: Slip on a pair of comfortable, closed toe heels to create the illusion of longer legs

3. Zoe Arissa Felissa Set Wear Casual Kurung Korean Styl
The Korean fashion trends of pleated skirts and ruffles have been adopted into modern baju kurung styles like this Felissa Set Wear Casual Kurung Korean Styl (available on zoearissaluxe.os.sg). Designed with a crepe fabric and ruffle high neck, this is hands down one of the most fashionable baju raya 2021 outfits to get in Singapore! It’s also available in a range of pretty pastel shades like blue grey, dusty pink and dusty green for a soft, demure look.
Style tip: Pair with a sleek hijab style to show off the baju kurung in all its glory

This baju kurung also includes six additional brooches that you can pin on the top or the belt for a bling effect!
5. naelofar Azka – Cocoa
Turn to luxe pieces like this naelofar Azka – Cocoa (available on naelofar OFFICIAL STORE) for a dose of shimmer. Made of a light chiffon material with metallic pinstripes effect, this baju kurung modern swishes and shimmers in the light with each step you take! The sash, bell sleeves and fit and flare skirt will add some subtle definition to your figure and give you an overall sophisticated and put together look.
For baju kurungs that can be worn post-festivities
6. Curved Hem Hi-lo Kurung
Extend the use of your baju kurung post Hari Raya festivities and wear it again for casual wear or even to work! This Lubna-Curved Hem Hi-lo Kurung (available on Zalora Singapore Official Store) features a regular fit, black top with a notch neckline and can be worn with your everyday pair of Muslimah pants into office. The floral print skirt, however, is what steals the show here. It comes with fit and flare design and an asymmetrical hemline — take it out of the wardrobe for special occasions and pair with a top of your choice!
7. Plus Size Wrap Top With Ruching Skirt Set
Looking for a plus size baju kurung modern? You’ll fall in love with this Plus Size Wrap Top With Ruching Skirt Set (available on Zalora Singapore Official Store)? This baju kurung can take you from visiting to a cafe date with your friends and still be restyled for everyday wear! Simply pair the polka dot wrap top with your favourite pair of denim jeans for a casual day out. Or pair the ruching skirt with a Muslimah blouse of your choice — you’ll be modestly covered and yet fashionable!
For the love of florals
8. Hawa Set Printed Modern Kurung
Now who said florals and prints don’t match? This Hawa Set Printed Modern Kurung (available on Owl By Nora Danish) stands out with its bold, streamlined silhouette that’ll hug your curves while keeping you covered. Don’t forget to pay attention to the type of fabric used when choosing your 2021 baju rayas in Singapore. For example this baju kurung is made from quality Italian crepe fabric that’s known for its high tear strength, resistance to shrinkage and smooth texture!
9. Zalia-Floral Kurung Kedah
Mix your love for floral with jacquard fabric! This unique Zalia-Floral Kurung Kedah (available on Zalora Singapore Official Store) is the 2021 baju raya in Singapore if you’re after a haute look. The fabric is beautifully woven with green and pink flowers with some added shimmery threads! Although the top is more boxed, the mermaid cut skirt balances the look, ending with a flare just at your ankles. We think this jacquard baju kurung will sit particularly well on mature women so nudge your mum or surprise her with it yourself!
For a frill-y affair
10. LUBNA Overlap Frill Top Kurung
Ditch last year’s traditional baju kurungs in favour of a bright and cheery Lubna Overlap Frill Top Kurung (available on Zalora Singapore Official Store). This baju kurung modern has a cute asymmetrical hem top with frills — perfect to hide your food belly after munching on addictive Hari Raya snacks! Similarly, the cascading skirt gathers in frills near your ankles, instead of with a straight hemline. We guarantee you’ll be on the receiving end of many compliments in this fun outfit while visiting relatives!
11. Lubna-Frill Wrap Set
Love frills, but don’t want to go overboard with them? This Lubna-Frill Wrap Set (available on Zalora Singapore Official Store) is a classy option. This solid tone baju kurung modern has an eyelet detail on the top and skirt (head over to the listing to see what we mean!).
