11 trend pieces with a modest twist

For those of us who like to cover our bums and tums, finding pieces that are modest and coincide with the latest trends can be a mission. More recently, big brands have started to respond to the modest fashion demands. Here are my favourite high-street picks for summer inspiration! All these trends have been taken from the catwalks and translated into suiting the modest dresser. Enjoy!

Keeping up with the kimonos

The humble kimono is one of the easiest ways to add an element of interest to your outfit. Not only are they airy and light, perfect for the summer heat and your holidays 'fits, they are an effortless way to cover up. I especially love the sophisticated simple shape of the Miss Selfridge Pewter Kimono Jacket. Even better, they often incorporate another key trend of floral prints and come in a variety of lengths. What more could we ask for?

All white everything

All of our favourite designers blessed us with the uber elegant white maxi dress on the catwalks this year. Now, high street stores have taken a page out of their books! Ideal for summer picnics, park days, parties, or just a cool Insta #OOTD, the white maxi is a staple this season. Take a sports-luxe approach to the trend with this Puma piece or go full on flirty with one of these options.

Statement stripes

Stipes function as year-round staples so we’re not complaining about this trend. Stripes look gorgeous in every colour so no doubt there’s something for everyone here! My favourite take on this trend is long shirts and midi dresses, especially ones that throw florals into the mix too. Opt for a fresh take with the front of striped shirts tucked into a pair of culottes and barely-there heels. Or pair a striped shirt dress with your favourite pair of skinnies or boyfriend jeans and you’re good to go.

Modest fashion doesn’t have to be a pain! Think of it more as an opportunity to embrace your inner fashionista and giving yourself a challenge at the same time. That way, it’s more fun than anything. Happy shopping!
