As we move into the New Year, we can see the acceptance and emergence of modest fashion in a more global way than ever before. Graceful long sleeves, classy hemlines and graceful neck lines make sure that you stay modestly on point while looking your best. Let 2018 be a year of experimentation, so don’t be afraid to try something you haven’t before! With these style tips, stay trendy and be ready to start off your New Year with a bang.
Experiment with Color
2018 is the perfect time to stop playing it safe with the same tested and tried color combos and to venture out and explore some new paint box color palettes. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bright colors that you would otherwise stay away from. A little bit of funk gives you the perfect balance of elegance and edgy. Transform any outfit with a dash of color to brighten it up and set yourself apart from the crowd. After all who wants to blend in when you can stand out! So go big and go bold!
Turn it up a Notch with your Accessories
The perfect accessories can transform a drab outfit into a fabulous one! Afraid your modest outfit is too simple? No worries, glam it up with the perfect accessories! A chunky statement necklace, bold sunglasses or just some funky shoes! The wilder the better! So get your creative juices flowing and create your own fashion statement!
Get Creative with the Scarves
Just because you cover your hair doesn’t mean you have to hold back on your inner fashionista. With various hijab styles such as turban scarves you get to challenge stereotypes, exude confidence all while looking like a million bucks. With modest fashion getting more and more popular, the hijab doesn’t need to look the same for everyone: you tie it up, tie it long, make it short or however you wish as long as it makes you feel good we can guarantee that it’ll make you look good too! So go ahead and show the world what you are made of with your head held high and hijab on point!
Get Both Comfort and Style with Long Pants
Long skirts and loose trousers have always been a key element of modest fashion but with culottes back in style, 2018 is the perfect time to experiment with those long pants that can keep you comfortable yet graceful and in with the latest trends! Match the pants with a classic lace top for a more elegant look or pair them up with a striped shirt for a more edgy look. The combinations are endless, so pick and choose your favorites!
Be Classic in Denim
Denim is one of those rare fabrics that is forever timeless and forever in style. We saw a lot of it hit the runway with collections of Tom Ford, Fendi and Nina Ricchi reaffirming our belief that denim never goes out of style! While you don’t want to overdo it, it is very difficult to go wrong with a classic denim jacket or that chic denim dress that gives you a unique blend of contemporary and cool. If you don’t own any denim yet, best to make that investment soon otherwise your wardrobe will forever be incomplete!
Stay Chic with a bit of Oriental Fashion
Oriental fashion statements have always had a big impact on the international fashion trends and styles. With high-end designers using culture as inspiration for their upcoming lines, we can see a lot of kimonos and mandarin collars making appearances on the runway. Add a bit of these to your wardrobe and we can assure you, you will not be disappointed! Trendy and chic, these styles can perfectly be incorporated into modest fashion to give you a look that is no short of high-end fashion you see on the runways.
Don’t Give up on the Trench Coats Yet
Just when we though trench coats were on their way out we see them making a comeback with fashion lines from Valentino, Alexander McQueen and many other fashion gurus. So with winters already here, pull those trench coats out of your wardrobes and jazz them up to create a style that is exquisite and uniquely yours.
Dressing modestly does not mean you have to be boring or drab. It might feel overwhelming at times but creating the perfect outfit does not require you to be an expert on fashion, just a little creative. So channel your inner fashionista, put on those thinking hats, keep in mind the trends mentioned above and go wild mixing and matching to create unique combos that are a reflection of both your style and personality. Remember as long as you feel good, you will look good. So don’t be afraid to take 2018 by storm with your style and funk!
