Dressing modestly isn’t always easy, especially when there are so many immodest clothing options to choose from and fewer clothing items that will actually cover you up. Luckily, modest fashion can be achievable if you know what basics you need and how to build upon them. Here at Kosher Casual, we have all of these basics and more!
1. Layering Shirts
With a layering shirt, you can transform practically any sleeveless dress or top into a piece of modest clothing that you’ll feel comfortable wearing. A layering shirt can also be the base for fabulous accessories! Owning several in a range of colors ensures that you’ll be able to complete an outfit without having to think too hard about it.
2. Pencil Skirts
Pencil skirts are a modest basic that can be worn all year round. During the warmer months of the year, this basic can be dressed up with a pair of heels or made completely casual with your favorite pair of comfortable sneakers. In the fall and winter throw on some cozy tights and a pair of boots and you’re ready to go!
3. Maxi Skirts
Perhaps the ultimate modest basic, long skirts (or maxi skirts) should be in every modest woman’s closet. A black maxi skirt can work with practically any top, and it’s comfortable enough for most activities. Or switch things up a bit and choose a bold color maxi to wear with a neutral colored top. However you choose to do it, we know you’ll look great!
A tunic is an essential basic for day-to-day wear. Paired with a pencil skirt, you’re guaranteed a put-together look that you can take from the store to the office, and it will keep you going into the evening without having to change your clothes! Tunics offer a great look without being clingy and the added length provides great coverage of the areas you’d prefer to keep hidden ;).
5. T-Shirt Dresses
If you really want to keep your outfit simple, a t-shirt dress is the way to go. This basic is an entire outfit in one piece! All you have to worry about is deciding on the shoes that are most appropriate for your plans. A knee-length dress can be cool and comfortable during the summer, but paired with a cardigan, leggings, and boots, it will also keep you warm in the winter.
Adding the basics to your modest wardrobe is the best way to ensure that you’re comfortable and covered every day. Check out our best sellers at Kosher Casual.
When it comes to modest fashion in Christianity, the definition of modesty depends mostly on your faith. You can be extremely fashionable and be a modest Christian at the same time. Your denomination usually sets the standards of what’s modest and what’s not. Have you ever noticed that different Christians dress differently? It really all depends on where you go to worship. Let’s take a look at the difference between modest wear in Pentecostal, Seventh Day Adventist, and Non-Denominational Christian churches.
When you walk into an Apostolic or Pentecostal church you may notice all of the women looking similar. Pentecostal Christian women wear long maxi skirts. They also wear long sleeves. Their idea of modesty includes keeping these body parts covered. Even In the hotter months, Pentecostal women and girls will wear a skirt that stops at the calves, or anywhere below the knee. When doing this, they must wear stockings to cover their exposed skin. There must also be a long sleeve shirt worn under all short sleeve tops. No makeup or jewelry is to be worn as well. These enhancements are seen as provocative. This style of dress must be maintained both in and out of the church.
Seventh Day Adventist
Seventh Day Adventist women also do not wear makeup or jewelry because it is not considered modest to do so. Adornments are to be made in other ways. The actual style of dress isn’t as strict as Pentecostals. Seventh Day Adventists are not required to wear long skirts and long sleeve shirts. Although dress codes may differ upon where you worship, for the most part being dressed in business casual attire and/or professional wear is seen as acceptable. These rules are to be followed both in and out of the church.
Non-Denominational Christians have a more open dressing policy. The main goal is to not expose nor purposefully accentuate the sexual parts of the body. This is really the only rule for obtaining modesty. When attending services, however, you must be covered. If a skirt or dress stops above or at the knee, a scarf should be placed over your lap to cover your bare knees. In most churches a scarf or cloth will be given to you if you do not have one. This dress code can vary depending on the church. You may also dress as casually as you like. There are no particular rules for dress outside of the church although it is important to represent your faith no matter where you are. Modesty in Non-Denominational churches is more about the heart than outer appearances.
Modesty doesn’t have to mean boring. Although it’s not always this first thing that comes to mind in fashion. We tend to want to be creative first, but sometimes fail to realize that we can be creatively modest. Many celebrities pull this look off effortlessly. No matter the age, modest wear can be done in a fabulously fashionable way.
Long sleeves, high necklines, and midi or maxi skirts and dresses are usually seen as frumpy, especially when they’re not being worn in the fall or winter seasons. In all actuality, they’re not frumpy at all! Any style can be seen as homely and boring if you don’t put any creativity into it.
Dressing modestly can even be pulled off in the summer. You don’t have to let it all hang out in order to catch that summer breeze. Wearing thinner fabrics that are more flowy always helps with staying cool during this season. Skirts can also rise from the ankle to right underneath the knee to keep yourself cool.
