When it comes to dresses, younger generations of today don’t go crazy over vintage finds for nothing. It goes without saying- things were simply far more gorgeous back in the day. The common thread between all the styles from the ’30’s, 40’s, and 50’s that made them stand out was the fact that they were timeless, fashionable, feminine, and most important of all- modest.
Many of these styles can easily be recreated, through clever pairing, accessorizing, and draping. Then there are others that, well, will take a bit more effort in terms of embroideries and such. Once all is said and done, the efforts will be worth it, and will make the wearer a true stunner with class!
Here’s a look at some lovely summer dresses from yesteryear. In some cases, you’ll want to grab the dresses right out of the photos, while with others you will wonder how ladies managed to maintain their grace while under all those layers in the summer heat. Try not to get too lost in the beautiful prints, details, and workmanship!

I love the vintage look. More feminine,classy and modest.
Some of these photos are more modest than others. The one with a black heart strapless top with the big plaid skirt would not be considered modest by most religious, because the arms, neck, upper chest are all exposed, and the top looks like she could bend over and her breasts would fall out.
There’s another strapless dress shown where the model is laying down reading a book. Same as above – very enticing.
