Whether you just don’t like to flaunt it or your cultural traditions encourage it, there’s no reason that you can’t be on trend while still keeping covered. Modest clothing usually calls for higher necklines, longer hems and minimal skin-showing—but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice an inch of style.
See our tips on staying stylish while dressing modestly below!
Say Hi to Higher Necklines
The key to keeping covered up? Know your necklines! We all know the classic crew neck and the cozy turtleneck that cover your collarbone (and more!). Okay with showing a little more skin? Try out a scoop neck, boat neck or petite v-neck to show off a bit of your collarbone, while still keeping your decolletage under wraps.
Flatter with Fit
Let’s dispel the myth that dressing modestly means reaching for baggy, unflattering clothing. While you keep covered, don’t skimp on fit! Skinny, straight and bootcut jeans are all denim must-haves to stock your closet with. Keep proportions in check by pairing loose tops (like a blousy, boho top) with fitted bottoms and vice versa.
Have your everyday looks dialed in? Take it up a notch by finding out what’s #trending each season to keep your looks current. Choose modestly cut pieces in trending colors and prints or weave these trends into your accessories like fun handbags, scarves and jewelry.
