I'm actually ok when a guy flirts and stares at my face, because I've learned to mix eye contact and looking away in order to reduce the possibility of becoming flustered, but when guys start checking out my body I just want to run away.
The requirement for "fitting in" also includes fashion to a degree. I've always done my best to not stand out, but I never really succeeded, because it's aparent that I dress modestly. I keep it sporty, I adore cute prints like bears, bunnies, flowers, so my friends told me, that combined with my childlike face, makes look like a kid. =( People who know my age tend to presume I'm religious. =/
I'm slim and fit, so I have a decent looking body. Guys stare and as flattering as that is, to know you're desireable, it's a lot more uncomfortable. My shyness overshadows the flattery, so it's not rewarding for me.
Girls and guys, can you please suggest some outfits, pieces of clothing, that will allow me to remain modestly dressed and comfortable, but that are also pretty, maybe glamorous (for a night out) and befitting of a 20 year old girl.
I'm really not good with fashion and shopping. ^.^'

I'm sorry you feel shy and uncomfortable, I'm sure you look gorgeous though if guys look at you a lot! :) It's good to be reserved and not show off all your skin all the time, I think it's nice when you're covered up then on a nice occasion you wear something a bit more daring because it's a chance for people to see you looking different.
I sometimes have the same problems as you, although I have a curvy figure my frame is insanely small which means I usually have to shop in kids ranges. That can be tough when you want something adult for a night out which doesn't have 'I <3 One Direction' all over it haha.
If you want something a bit more adult looking on a daily basis, just get some clothes which are fashionably loose or baggy, they don't show any skin and don't cling to areas of your body you'd rather people didn't stare at. This was just a quick outfit I found browsing which I think is kind of reserved but stylish aswell:
For meals out/bars and things, I always find that hard. I want to keep covered without looking like I've missed the meet up for prayer meeting. I just found something quick, but these kind of short dresses might be an idea, they're looser and covered and are great for summer and winter. You could even wear tights/leggings if you really wanted. They kind of look cutsie to match the things you like and they're good for your age range or for someone older :)
