Here we are back in Asia after a small trip to Europe , this time to Singapore, which is one of the most diverse country in the world!
Singapore has a very diverse ethnicity. The largest ethnic groups living in Singapore consists of Chinese, Malaysian and Indian origin.
It’s not easy to define a particular fashion style in Singapore due to a mix of different cultures, religions and simply origins. If you notice Singaporean streets you might find a big influence of Western trends, but let’s not forget that we are still in Asia, which means you will find typical elements of Chinese or Korean looks.
As the second largest population of Singapore is represented by Malaysians and Indians, I would like to show you a typical and traditional look adopted by them.
Girls from Malaysian-Muslim families wear rather feminine clothes but of course they obey the major, religious rules. Long dresses worn by them are made of drafty fabric, often with some minimalistic print. Inseparable part of their outfit is a Hijab – a veil, that covers the head and chest. It can be very simple with a single color or multi-colored.
As the outfit is rather conservative, Malaysians add some nice trendy sunglasses, bags or jewelry to it, which make them look more modern.
There are other type of Malaysian girls, who would like to look more like their Chinese peers and they choose loose tops with leggings, trousers or some trendy pieces such as jackets, shoes and of course colorful hijab.
Now about a Singaporean Indian look. In one of my previous post, I mentioned already what is a typical Indian outfit, but let me refresh your memory with this.
A typical Indian woman wears a sari or a salwar kameez. As you probably know sari is a strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from four to nine yards in length that is draped over the body in various styles. While salwar kameez is simply a traditional dress. Salwar are loose pajama-like trousers, where the legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic.
As I mentioned in the beginning, the largest ethnic group consist of Chinese, and that’s what actually describes Singaporean fashion.
Here is a glimpse of a true Singaporean Street Fashion for my fellow bloggers and followers.
Stay tuned guys, Singapore is too awesome to keep it only in one post.
