Living in a country brimming with culture, we’re fortunate to have our sarees, batik, and cheongsam shops in Singapore to be proud of. Batik prints are full of history and they are mostly found on our traditional sarongs, cheongsams, and kebayas. But today, batik shops in Singapore have embraced fusing those classic motifs with modern styles of clothing to give it a fresh new look. With their elegant designs and modern cuts, these batik pieces can be easily worn by anyone, at any time. We’ve rounded up five new styles to inspire your next batik clothing:
Picnic day out
So, what can one do if they wish to carve out time for joy with their loved ones during this period while also adhering to social-distance measures to combat the spread of COVID-19?
Picnics are a terrific method to accomplish precisely that, as simple as they sound. Nothing screams “picnic chic” quite like the sleeveless batik tops from Anmako. The batik prints make it easy to match with any plain bottom or if you’d like, go ahead and pair it with matching shorts! Complete your look with a statement necklace and you’re all set.
2. Barbeque gathering
When it comes to barbeque gatherings, it’s so much simpler to decide on an outfit unlike dining with friends at a restaurant. It’s always a good idea to keep your outfit comfortable and laidback for barbeque get-togethers.
Anmako’s range of airy sleeveless knee-length dresses is great for a humid barbeque session. The structure of this sleeveless knee-length batik dress will accentuate your curves gently and the V-shape neckline exudes a clean, yet modest look - letting you stay comfortable while looking elegant.
3. On a cruise
The closest thing we can get to traveling these days is going on a cruise to nowhere. Cruising lets you unwind by the pool, sightsee and shop in numerous ports, participate in exhilarating excursions, and sink your teeth into delectable cuisines. Between daytime activities, lazy afternoons by the pool, and semi-formal dinners, cruises require a few wardrobe changes throughout the day. So you may want to pack light by bringing essential pieces of clothing that you can repeatedly wear throughout your sea vacation.
A staple that you can add to your wardrobe is a batik sleeveless maxi dress from Anmako. The authentic hand-dyed batik prints on this flowy dress are everything you need to look at the part on deck at sea. If you’re planning a cruise holiday with your partner, match his outfit with yours with the batik men’s shorts! Not only are they comfortable to move around in, but they make a fashion statement as well.
4. Cocktail party
When it comes to a cocktail party reception, take things up a notch and keep it traditional. Instead of donning a conventional cocktail dress, try opting for a knee-length batik dress instead. The hand-stamped batik motifs give off a sophisticated and classy look. f you’re headed to a wedding reception, finishing this outfit off with a pair of stilettos will do the trick.
Planning on bringing a plus one? Match your outfits with a batik shirt for him. Anmako’s long-sleeved batik shirt is slim-fit and is not as boxy as a traditional batik shirt making it perfect for casual wear too.
