This should cover the hair and the ears, in accordance with the Islamic dress. The selendang has been part of the Malay women's wardrobe for ages, though with greater understanding of Islam a stricter observance of what should be concealed and what can be exposed is now practiced. When a Muslim girl reaches puberty, she should be encouraged to cover her whole body except her face and hands. At this point, she may decide to don a piece of head scarf. Malay Dressing - Women:  Malay Dressing - Women Baju Kurung The baju kurung looks quite like men’s wear. It is a simple knee-length blouse worn over a long skirt pleated at the side.The outfit is completed with a selendang or tudung around the shoulders or on the head . Baju kurung too can be matched with "kain songket", "batik" or even "pelikat". The baju kurung is more liked by people because it covers the whole body except for the palms and the face which is considered to be polite. The baju kurung is more suitable with the teachings of Islam as it is not exposing the whole body except for the palms and the face. Nowadays, baju kurung can be found in different styles. These clothes are being tailored so that they suit the person wearing it. Among the baju kurungs that have been tailored are "baju kurung labuh", "baju kurung moden", "baju kurung cekak", "baju kurung Kedah" and others.

Baju kebarung is like the kebaya but it is loose like baju kurung, which is why it is called baju kebarung. The Baju kebarung is actually not one of the traditional clothes of the Malay community but it is being produced presently to satisfy the Malay community.
