With Ramadan well underway, we’re already thinking of what to wear for Hari Raya – particularly for our kiddos!
It’s true what they say about mamas: they tend to put others’ needs ahead of theirs. And in this case it’s no less true, because although we’re still weeks away from the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, we can bet you’re already thinking of the family outfit colour theme.
But first, kids’ clothes! The art of staying comfortable throughout a whole day of visiting relatives is a hard one to master, but made much easier when you’ve got a stylish outfit that’ll make the family swoon. From gorgeous threads for girls to colourful sets for boys (complete with Marvel Endgame-themed buttons, omg!), check out our list of fave local and regional labels for kids’ Hari Raya fashion!
Started by a stylish grandmama who we’ve often seen dressing her too-sweet-for-words granddaughter, PickADillyBaby is a humble local label that stocks beautiful flouncy tops, dresses and sets. Previously based only on Instagram, they’ve now launched their online store for easier shopping. This year, they’ve created matching sets for bubbas in collaboration with Katt Ibrahim RTW. The colours and bold prints are absolutely irresistible, and can go beyond just special occasions like Hari Raya. Wear them as separates with sweat pants or jeans and your little one’s good for the weekend. PickADillyBaby also stocks clothes for boys!
Maison Q knows just how to do kids’ formalwear – all comfort with just enough glam. Made for kiddos 1 to 7 years old, all the pieces can be worn as full looks or mixed and matched with existing pieces in your littlie’s wardrobe. We love all the playful prints and pastel shades! Their Marisa Pantsuit will be a particular fave among pant-loving girls. Check out the super cute behind-the-scenes footage from their Instagram below to see the clothes in motion.

While Jakel is best known as one of Malaysia’s largest fabric giants, they also stock simple, well-made baju kurungs for men and boys in a rainbow of colours and fabrics. You’ll find them at the Geylang Serai Ramadan bazaar, and other neighbourhood night markets such as the Bazaar Raya Utara in Woodlands.
With a strong focus on 100% natural fibres and ethical garment practices, we can’t help but love the direction this label is going. Right before they launched their Eid 2019 collection, Kooshboo gave customers an insight into their production process by sharing behind-the-scenes photos of their factories and profiling the workers behind the clothing. With cute rompers, mini kaftans and baju kurungs in lovely shades, we’re all for a more ethically conscious Hari Raya this year!
Psst, they also some great kaftans for mamas and comfy sets for dads!
If you’ve got a little girl who’s flower-obsessed, she’ll love every piece in Maqayla’s collection! A burst of florals in every shape and colour are available on skirts, scarves and baju kurungs for your mini-me.

On top of traditional baju kurungs for boys, girls and dads in bright, colourful prints, Pokoks also offers more plain, laid back tops and bottoms for those casual family visits. They also stock irresistibly cute baby onesies in a myriad colours!
Staying comfy while looking dressed up is easy with Poplook’s super-affordable, breezy threads. We love that there’s a variety of styles, from florals to bling and even plain versions in multiple colours.
