Welcome to the 21st century where a woman can choose whether she wants to dress modestly or not. A lot of people tend to give modest dressing a bad wrap, like a woman must be so repressed if she doesn't show skin, but modest dressing is not all full length head to toe straight jacket type wear. It can be just as fun and fashionable as someone who doesn't dress modestly.
There are different levels and interpretations of modesty. For some, it is fully covered, for some, they want to show some skin, but nothing low cut or high cut in the case of skirts/shorts. For some it includes a head covering, and so fourth and so on. It really isn't as hard as a lot of woman make it out to be to find modest clothing or to style it so that it doesn't remind you of something out of the 1800's. You are after all living in this century where not only has style changed, but the way one dresses modestly has too. No more big sack like shapeless dresses, and clunky heels (unless you want to wear those).
As with any fashion choice, it's how you style it. With even the most plain and seemingly boring outfit, you can add accessories, and color, and go crazy with an endless choice of shoes, hats, purses, and jewelry. Don't think like, oh if I wear modest clothes, that you'll just fade into the background. When you are confident and feel good in what you wear, that shows sometimes more than the clothing itself.
Most people don't really actually notice the majority of people who dress modestly. So many women do it anyway without consciously thinking about it. A lot of people assume that you can just identify a modest dresser as a boring person, or a virgin, or a person without style, but there are very stylish and fashionable modest dressers around the globe who post OOTD, go to parties aren't virgins, and definitely still want to dress to impress, just within their comfort zone.
When dressing modestly, it's fun to take inspiration from past generations and bring a bit of vintage flair into a modern wardrobe. A lot of the styles of decades past were meant to be modest but remained very stylish none the less. Mix in modern day designs and patterns to keep it fresh and less costumey. Pick one very vintage piece and mix it with something off today's racks.
When it comes to casual wear, pick pieces with a bit of embellishment to them. A cute top is a cute top is a cute top no matter if it's open back or a turtle neck long sleeve. In winter look for standout leather and jean jackets that can pop even the most mundane jeans and a t-shirt and provide a lot of coverage. When it comes to the summer months, look for breathable lighter weight fabrics and shorter or looser sleeves. A good bet is always an easy breezy chiffon maxi dress that floats in the wind.
Work wear or church wear is a no brainer. Most jobs tend to encourage modest dressing, but you don't just have to do the same old black, grey or navy suit, or dumpy boxy unfeminine cuts. Instead spike your work wear with your personality. Add color, simple accessories, and a bold shoe to your wardrobe, but obviously be mindful of your companies or offices dress code.
Modest dressing in 2017 doesn't have to be boring or predictable. You can shine with as much confidence, personality, and sex appeal as any other women who chooses to show a bit more skin. Don't let someone convince you that you need to show more skin to do these things, just as they shouldn't let anyone convince them that they have to be covered up. There is room for all women to dress the way they like in a way that makes them each feel happy, comfortable, and fashionable.
