It’s always fun when summer rolls around, especially when it comes to fashion. While some may associate the hot and humid season with shorter hemlines, and cropped tops, there are plenty of ladies who still prefer to dress modestly. When it comes to modest wear, picking more breathable fabrics in looser silhouettes are your best bet to deal with the heat.
Read ahead to get the scoop on five modest outfit looks to get you through the summer. From comfortable loose ensembles to glammed-up summer attires, these styles will be there for you through your weekend getaways, nights out, or staycations with the girls. Cheers to the best summer yet!
Athleisure, But Dressier
If you live in activewear, this is your summer alternative. Slip out of your yoga leggings and substitute it with a dressier pair of lounge pants instead and pair it with a simple black top. It’s a flattering cut for all body shapes, gives you the same level of comfort and room for movement, and looks way more put together than your average activewear ‘fit. Throw on a jacket and a pair of sneakers to complete your look.
A Time Under The Sun
Nothing describes summer best, other than spending some time under the sun, feeling the summer breeze and the calming ocean sound. Choose a flowy, bright coloured dress and live the summer dream. A tip to turn this outfit into a modest fashion is to wear a white inner top like this one. Last but not least, complete the look with matching sandals and get ready to get sand in your feet.
For any summer occasions you have, staying breezy while looking sophisticated is definitely the way to go. Opt out of uncomfortable, tight-fitted formal dresses and try a loose silhouette instead. Trust us, it’s much better for the heat! Pair it with casual mules and a small purse to complete the look, and voila!
Pop of Summer
Nothing says summer like a pop of colour against a sunny backdrop. Keep the look simple with a shirt and trouser ensemble, and accessorise with a pop of colour. In this case, a statement bag definitely makes the look.
We get it, getting glammed up and dressing to the nines isn’t for everyone. In the sweltering heat, you might prefer to dress strictly for comfort — whatever the occasion. This look allows you to stay so comfortable you could sleep in it, but still put-together enough that you can go to brunch with the girls without having to change into anything else.
While dressing up for summer might be a bit trickier to stay looking modest, it’s always fun to experiment and explore the limits of your wardrobe. Browse and shop on the Style Theory Shop to expand and add some new summer pieces to your wardrobe.
