Two Very Good Reasons To Look Into Modest Fashion — And Three Ways To Pull It Off Successfully

Posted by on Mar 28, 2016 in Uncategorized

If you’re a woman looking for some new styles to add to your wardrobe, or even if you’re looking to give yourself a bit of a makeover, start looking at fashion blogs that focus on what’s known as “modest” dressing. Modest fashion is often associated with highly religious lifestyles, but that isn’t always the case. In fact, while some modest fashion blogs are geared toward stylish religious dress, others are geared simply toward clothes that have longer hemlines or higher necklines — but that still look very good and very modern. Here are two reasons why dressing modestly may be just what you’re looking for, plus three ways to pull it off (pun intended) successfully.     More Relaxing Wearing clothing that has a little more material to it can make it less of an effort to wear the clothing. What that means is that you’re not constantly having to move the shoulder of your blouse back up or having to check that your shorts haven’t started showing a little too much in back. If wind hits a short skirt, it can send that skirt flying up. But if the wind hits a longer skirt, you’re less at risk of showing the world what you’re wearing underneath it. There’s just less worry and concern that goes into keeping the clothing in place and looking good. It may seem like a small issue to have to adjust your clothing, but it can really take up a lot of your subconscious attention. Diverse Styles Modest fashion doesn’t restrict what you can wear — it adds to it. Add in more modest styles like maxi skirts and different sleeve lengths on shirts, and you’ve just increased the number of styles you can choose from. Start looking at dresses that have lengths anywhere from just above the knee to all the way down to the ground, and you’ve enlarged the range of dresses in which you can look for outfits. It’s that simple. You simply have a greater variety of clothing to choose from. Diversify Patterns and Colors If you do want to include more modest fashion in your wardrobe, diversify the patterns and colors you wear. It’s fine to emphasize your favorites, but don’t stick to just a couple of colors overall. Even if the main piece you wear is one color, add a sweater or scarf that has a delicate print on it. Ensure you have a few pieces in bold colors and busy patterns as well as more sedate solid colors. Reduce the Use of Empire Waists Dresses with empire waists, those high waists that sit around the bottom of your bust (note: not dresses that have built-in curved waists and a seam where an empire waist would go, but those that have actual empire waists only), can be fashionable. But if you’re dressing modestly and thus using longer sleeves...
