Growing up, I always thought fashion was all about wearing skimpy clothes. With time, I realized the term had less to do with clothes and more with the people wearing them.
The early 2000s saw the introduction of a new phrase – modest fashion, describing the growing trend of women dressing in less-revealing clothing, particularly when it meets their spiritual and stylistic needs due to their religion or personal tastes.
Generally, everything a particular person does in the fashion world matters, from fit selection to style or how well they put different fashion elements together.
That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite modest fashion influencers to inspire your fashion style choices whether you’re a staunch modest fashion follower or are simply looking to cover up for an event.
