You'll definitely get heads turning with anything from Doublewoot! The Malaysian-grown fashion label has a knack for delivering quality outfits (that probably explains why they sell out pretty quickly each time).

Their pieces are produced by the brand itself so you may not find them anywhere else. They offer a variety of styles for different age groups, with designs that are demure and chic.

Price range:
RM128 – RM199
