Your 2024 Guide to Modest Wardrobe Staples

A Classic Black Day to Night Dress

Having a solid black dress you can rely on for both daytime and nighttime wear is essential - there's nothing easier than throwing on a black dress and even better than the ease of throwing it on is the versatility it lends in styling. Style with combat boots (we love this pair from A. Soliani) and black tights during the day in winter or with heels (this is a great classic black pump) and crystal accessories for an easy nighttime look. You can just as easily style the same black dress in warmer months with sandals or ballet flats.

A Year Round Timeless Wedding Guest Dress

You can avoid the last minute search for the perfect modest wedding guest dress by having a classic go-to hanging in your closet. Opt for basic black or a hue that transcends seasons to ensure year-round use. And if none of these speak to you, fear not! We have plenty more options in our Wedding Guest Shop.

A Running Errands Dress

We're always looking for easy throw on dresses we can grab quickly to run around town in for a chill errands day - having a go-to running around town dress you also feel cute in is key.

A Cozy Yet Cute Sweater Dress

Get yourself a cozy sweater dress for the cold winter months - it also doubles as a wearable blanket when you're traveling or just hanging out with friends, 

A Good Reliable Matching Skirt/Top Set

Don't sleep on the matching skirt/set life!! Having a matching set in your closet not only makes creating a chic outfit effortless, but it produces 100+ outfits out of just two pieces. Wear the top with other skirts or layered over a sleeveless dress and take the skirt and wear it with quite literally any other top or sweater in your closet. P. S we have both winter and summer matching sets depending on the climate you live in.

A Denim Skirt

Investing in a denim skirt doesn't even have to be expensive. We love these skirts from Kadriye because they have no slits and are very comfortable. Style your denim skirt in winter with your favorite sweater and boots or turn it into a summery look with a boxy tee and sneakers.

A Classic Black Skirt

If you're reading this you probably have a black skirt hanging in your closet, but it can't be stressed enough how important it is to have the right one. Find a comfortable and flattering black skirt and you'll never wonder what to wear again. 

A Basic Long Sleeve Tee

Style your basic long sleeve tee alone with skirts, wear layered under anything v-neck or sleeveless or just simply wear as an extra layer under your sweaters in the winter for additional warmth.

A 'Pairs Well With Any Skirt' Bodysuit

Bodysuits are modest fashion's best kept secret. It's annoying finding the right top that looks good with skirts because often the hemline doesn't sit right with the waistline of most skirts. Bodysuits eliminate that problem by seamlessly fitting underneath the hemline of your skirt, making one cohesive line appear between your skirt and top. 

A Boxy Tee

Boxy tees are more of a warm weather essential, replacing the necessity of your long sleeve tee. Pair with any skirt or layer under or over a sleeveless dress like this one from Em + Shi for effortless summer dressing. You can definitely wear in winter months as well with a cardigan layered over.

An Oversized Button Down

Button down shirts can be your secret styling weapon if you know how to wear them. The secret to wearing button downs with skirts is half buttoning them for a more feminine / less utilitarian look and half tucking them into your skirt for a more relaxed look. You can just as easily style button downs completely unbutton and untucked over a boxy tee or sleeveless dress in the summer for extra coverage. The key to this styling method is opting for a maxi hemline for your skirt or dress to create a more elongated appearance. 

A Classic Cardigan

Cardigans are a year-round staple: style over a long sleeve top or your favorite turtleneck in the winter for extra warmth or wear with your favorite summery dress on chillier summer nights.
