Guide to Modest Dressing (While Letting Some Style Shine Through)

How to Achieve Both for Every Occasion

Modest in style
Dress up modestly but with style

It’s an absolute myth that being in style means being you can't dress in modest attire. We’re here to tell you that there are plenty of ways to wear dresses modestly for every occasion—fashionable (but modest) pieces with elegance, dignity, grace, and comfort—inside and out. Just keep these guidelines in mind when choosing your modest style, and let the outfits do the rest.

Midi and Maxi Dresses

Midi and maxi dresses are both beautifully modest options for occasion attire. Flowy, elegant and feminine, they make an entrance while remaining both modest and stylish..

Wide-leg Pants

We love them because they have plenty of room and movement, but they’re also irresistibly chic and totally modest. Pair them with a modest turtleneck or long-sleeve blouse for evening and your stylish but modest look is complete.

Button-down Blouses

Modest, flowy, elegant and versatile enough to be dressed up or down—especially with a ball skirt or other fashionable but modest pieces..

Dots and Stripes

These are both patterns that are modest but stylish, fresh and modern—and so easy to wear modestly.

Avoid Sleeveless Styles

Avoid sleeveless styles, plunging V-necks, and open backs (Bonus: Long sleeves are forever modest and elegant). 

Create Your Own Modest Style

Create modest style with layers, aka a shrug over a short-sleeve dress, a wrap over a cap-sleeve midi dress.

Embrace Evening Separates

When dressing modestly, embrace evening separates —wide-leg trousers, a blousy top, a soft cover-up, all stylish but modest choices.

Dressing modestly never has to mean boring, It’s all about what you bring to the look, and shining from the inside out. We love the options above, but if you want to amp up your outfit just a little, think about a few pieces of jewelry you might want to add to your modest style aesthetic.
