The Modest Edit: Get Ahead of the Curve

Modest attire is currently a global trend, with kimono’s, floaty blouses, and wide legs pants being on every fashion girl’s radar. We’ve picked out some of the season’s hottest pieces and put together a few looks you can try now!


Miella Curve, Mulberry Taupe Tote, Nicholas Kirkwood Gold Flats, Zara Jeans Curve, Charlotte Simone Pink Red

There are multiple uses for a shirt dress; wear it open over a maxi dress, wear it half open from the waist down to reveal your favourite jeans, belt it and wear with a pair of heels for evening….need we go on?

Here we’ve styled Miella’s (available at SayidatyMall) colour – popping printed maxi shirt dress for perfect workwear to weekend dressing with a fabulous faux fur scarf by Charlotte Simone for some serious sass. It’s all about peacocking with this look!


Zara Black Tie Neck, Balenciaga Runners, Gucci Red Disco Bag, Marco DeVincenzo Leopard Gilet

Often, the key to be classic and chic is about being minimal and adding a couple of statement pieces. Black is a slimming colour and a great way to be able to maximize your look with some fabulous accessories. A sleeveless longline gilet is a great outerwear option to draw the body in so be adventurous with it! We’ve kept this look simple with a sports luxe edge by pairing a floaty blouse with statement runners and a well-tailored gilet. The textures streamline the body and pull the entire look together. Add some statement earrings for a final touch.


Jenny Packham Red Gown, Zara Velvet Earrings, Mango Velvet Pouch, Malone Souliers Black

Event dressing is ALL about the dress and the key to looking svelte is sticking to one colour from head to toe. We’ve picked this shimmering Jenny Packham gown since it draws the eye in with it’s wrap effect and accentuates curves. Not only is it modest, it’s fabulous. Pair it with an elongating heel – (not a platform – this isn’t Studio54) and an embellished clutch for a red carpet look!

If you choose a wrap dress that has a slit up the front, a wide leg pant underneath won’t go amiss. Pick a fabric that moves with you and the dress.
