Living in the Middle East has made me appreciate modest dressing more than I used to. I think everyone should dress the way they want but dressing modestly often gets a bad rep for being boring and not fashionable. I see so many talented and stylish women while being perfectly covered. Here’s my list of modest clothing that is both stylish and super comfortable.
The most obvious choice and possibly the most comfortable after your pajamas. To make it exciting, opt for maxi dresses with a twist. Look for a different silhouette, unexpected fabrics (linen and raw silk) or pockets. Give your jersey dresses a rest this season and elevate your style quotient with these new-age maxi dresses.
This dress is created by the very talented Omani designer Amal Jamali, she mixes the local flavour with modern silhouettes. Even though this embellished dress/tunic is such a statement piece, I can imagine wearing with jeans, leggings or a maxi skirt. (I also love this waistcoat made by the same designer.)
Blazers, jackets, boleros or shrugs are your best friends when you’re dressing modestly. But since we’re upping our style game, look for rivets, power shoulders or peplum blazers to add that extra oomph.
Ditch your skinny pants and look for quirky printed skirts. Perfect for an Iftar gathering with colleagues or an elegant dinner date with your friends. Quirky prints in an A-line silhouette or billowy colour-blocked skirts are all you need to stay ahead of the game this Ramadan.
If your style is more simple and girl-next-door, then simply pair your regular jeans-and-tee combination with a bright scarf. It’s easy to throw on over your everyday look and perfect on a sunny day when you need portable shade from the sun.
If layers aren’t your thing, then just go ahead and wear a matching pant suit. Perfect for work, after work gatherings and celebrations. You can go for a pin stripe suit or go bold with a floral set. It’s the perfect way to beat the heat in style.
