What is the best part of wearing baju Melayu? Ornate it with the butang or the studs, of course. If you go to any Bazaar Syawal like what happen these days in any part of the country, chances that you'll stumbled upon many, many, many types of butang baju Melayu is absolutely high. Too high that you'll have tough time choosing what you really like. Almost at every corner of the shops and boutiques and stalls selling baju raya there'll be some butang sold alongside with the brooches for the kebaya.
This year I went for something unconventional that I never did before. The butang is slightly oversized, giving a sense of more blingy feel to the understated baju Melayu. What is more unconventional, they're gems-encrusted - mutilcolored stones, or faux diamond - for the pop of shine to the ensemble.
Having a dilemma on which one should I choose; I pick all three!
