Modest ✖ Fashion = the ultimate form of sophistication and simplicity. There are a lot of misconceptions around modest dressing. People tend to believe that dressing modestly is akin to boring attires in dull colours. But lately, fashion enthusiasts and conglomerates like MODESTyle.com (entering this billion dollar industry) are proving it wrong.
Dressing modestly doesn’t mean giving up fashion styles. Mixing fashion and modesty can result in a riot of colours, cuts and prints. With big fashion houses coming up with exclusive collections for the modest fashion industry, here are trends that will keep all modest shoppers stylish this festive season.
- Ruffles and Frills
Bold ruffles are back and how. From shirts to dresses and bottom, ruffles subtly incorporated in the clothing are perfect for daily and evening wear. You can wear it to work or on a date and come out looking elegant when complemented with aesthetic accessories.
- Floral Print
One print that will never be outdated; floral print is your go-to fashion trend to add elegance to your wardrobe. Be it a t-shirt, a flowy dress or a cardigan to keep you warm, the colourful flowers can keep you trendy at all times.
