Dress To Impress As The Seasons Change
Check out these stunning ways to style and accessorise your favourite modest-wear looks for Springtime.
After a couple of false starts, Spring is finally here! For all you modest-wear dressers, it’s time to switch up your look and embrace the change in seasons. If you’ve been in lockdown so long that you’ve missed out on some of the hottest trends, here’s a rundown of the top ways to style your modest wear between now and summer.
Layering is a popular way to style your modest wear wardrobe at any time of year, but springtime is the perfect season to combine your garments, so you’re dressed for all weather. Perfectly positioned between the nippy chill of winter and the glaring hot sunshine of the summer months, you can never quite be sure what the weather has planned during spring which is where layering comes in.
Coats and cardies
In terms of outerwear, a trench coat is a great option. It’s lightweight enough that you won’t find it overwhelming, but it’s the perfect coat to grab and go with in case of a downpour. You’ll find it goes with absolutely anything too.
For those times when you can be a little more certain of the weather, a blazer is the perfect style piece to complement both your formal and informal wardrobes depending on the occasion. Your blazer can be paired with a suit, dress or your T-shirt and jeans proving how versatile an idea this is for your modest wear wardrobe.
If you’re looking for a lighter look still, a cardigan is a perfect way to cover up anything from a blouse to a maxi dress. As you can expect the weather to be a little warmer than the depths of winter, you won’t want to be layering chunky knits, but a simple cotton card will keep the breeze out.
It should come as no surprise that the blossoming of nature is the perfect opportunity to don your best floral prints. A beautiful flowery dress or hijab can work wonders in brightening your mood. Remember though that less is more, so aim for just one floral print in your ensemble and then complement the look with some plain accessories to avoid overkill.
Shades of Spring
The Spring palette encompasses plenty of colour schemes. On the one hand, you have your earthy neutral tones – tan and brown which look classic and understated. Black modest wear paired with a stunning tan coat or hijab looks effortlessly appealing for example.
Another popular set of colours to add to your wardrobe during spring is your pastel shades. From lilac to dusky rose, baby blue and peach, there are some beautiful innocent shades to work into your modest wear wardrobe. The great thing about pastels is that they tend to complement each other too, meaning you can create a really light and playful look.
Fresh for this season is a decidedly 80s set of neon shades too which are taking modest wearers by surprise. Think lemon yellow, tangerine orange and fuchsia pink – all of which are real showstoppers. If this the look for you, then go easy with it. A single vibrant garment paired with black or more neutral tones will provide just the right amount of wow factor for your ensemble.
Hopefully, you’ve been inspired by some of these ideas to create your own look as the seasons change. Feel free to experiment with the looks to match your own personal style. Don’t forget your sunglasses in case of a sunny day!
