The Women’s HPJ Camisole Swing Dress creates an A-line silhouette that makes it flattering on the body. The addition of the HPJ printed stole also helps enhance the simplicity of the dress with a pop of color.

The Batik Motive Men’s Short Sleeve Shirt can be matched with Slim Fit Chinos to provide maximum comfort especially when you’re eating and traveling from house to house.

For when you are visiting your friends or attending a last minute gathering, these outfits might do the trick. Although it requires minimal effort, a clean and presentable look can still be achieved.

If you fancy something breathable and lightweight, the HPJ Women’s Textured Cotton Short Sleeve Dress is an option you can consider. If you don’t want to use the stole as a scarf, you can simply create a headband with it and it will help give an extra touch to the look.

For men, if you feel like wearing something casual, try combining a plain t-shirt with the batik top. You can choose to button it halfway or unbutton it completely to show off the t-shirt.

To make the outfit more stylish, pairing it with the Smart Ankle 2Way Stretch Pants can help completely elevate the look as it creates a balance between a relaxed top and a neat bottom.

Are you planning to visit a certain number of houses on this specific day? You may want to try to choose an elegant yet comfortable outfit.

The HPJ Women’s Cotton Belted Short Sleeve Dress comes with a belt that can be tied in the back, creating an outerwear-like outfit. The printed ruffled skirt is part of the Paul & Joe collection and with this combination it helps to create a vintage look.

Another way to wear the Smart Ankle Pant is to pair it with a long sleeve shirt like the UNIQLO Soft Twill Mock Neck Long Sleeve Shirt.

As part of the Hari Raya men’s collection, UNIQLO will also launch a range of baju melayu which comes both collarless and stand-up collar.

In addition to a simple long-sleeved shirt, you can also pair the pants with the baju melayu or any Baju Kurung you have.

The Hana Tajima collection is available online and in select stores such as Orchard Central Global Flagship, [email protected], ION Orchard and Tampines Mall only. Some of the pieces in the collection will be available at other UNIQLO stores.

As for the Hari Raya men’s collection — short-sleeved shirt with Batik pattern and baju melayu are available online and in limited stores from late April.

These garments can be worn beyond Hari Raya festivities as they can be styled in many different ways, making them a versatile and must-have piece in your wardrobe.
