When it comes to finding modest clothing for women that are also comfortable and cool to wear in the summer, you might be out of luck most of the time. A lot of clothing companies don’t necessarily offer clothes with long enough sleeves, long enough skirts, or high enough necklines–especially when it comes to summertime clothing lines.
This could make you feel like you’re running around in circles just trying to find outfits for your days out, work, or church that won’t make you sweat bullets. While this can be very frustrating, there are some great modest go-to pieces that you can add to your summer wardrobe right now.
1. Spring Dress
A great time of year to look for modest dresses is actually in the spring. Many companies offer dresses with more coverage and even sleeves in the spring. This is probably because spring is often much cooler than summer. Grab a dress like this belted A-line dress and pair it with cute chunky sandals for a fun look that you can easily transition to a fall outfit with a pair of booties and a scarf.
2. Black Shirt and White Pants
This classic look is great for casual outings and also slightly more formal events where you don’t want to be too dressy, but jeans are too casual. Grab a black or navy shirt and pair it with modest, non-see-through white pants. Complete the outfit with a cute pair of wedges or heels and some subtle gold jewellery.
3. Modest Shorts
If you’re looking for a modest way to wear shorts, consider a pair of Bermuda shorts. You might need to try on a few pairs before you find some that are the right length, but they are worth it once you have a great pair of shorts. Wear the shorts with a lightweight top in a summer colour. Complete the outfit with your favourite pair of strappy sandals.
4. Maxi Skirt and Shirt
One way to ensure your skirt is long enough is to buy maxi skirts. Try a tiered maxi skirt in a neutral colour (green, black, white, brown, or blue.) Then pair it with a basic tee and a few layered necklaces. Your shoes don’t matter quite as much since the skirt will cover them. However, a pair of flats or sandals are great choices.
5. Biker Shorts and a Graphic Tee
A popular look right now consists of a long pair of biker shorts and an oversized graphic tee. This look can be adapted to be modest. Make sure your biker shorts go to your knee, and layer an oversized graphic tee over the top to complete the look. You can only wear this outfit at home while exercising or running errands, but it’s great for keeping cool.
Don’t keep running in circles when it comes to modest clothing. Grab some of these modest options while updating your wardrobe.
