Asian hijabis got style!!! All of their outfits are loose but gorgeous and the way they wrap their hijabs (or tudung i think?) is fresh! So modest and FABULOUS colors!!

That's sarong style with an indigenous outfit. The skirt is also used in Indonesian and Malay-Filipino martial arts. Those are also often Muslim and they are quite talented and those skirts are perfect for light unrestricted movements.

Lovely outfit! Sweet sarongs.

Thanks Sis.

My wife wishes to request her son to bring several outfits of that type back from Kuala Lumpur. Can they be bought off the rack? Pls advise.
This outfit is an eloquent argument for the 'traditional' base to outweigh the western accretions in the name of synthesis; this is the political position from which my 60's born generation would start. I genuinely admire this outfit & would like to see more of such...
