Dressing For Your Body Type: Elevating Your Style with Confidence and Modesty

Ok, can we be for real right now…in a world saturated with fashion trends and fads,, there's something undeniably freeing about cultivating a sense of style that is both elevated and purposeful. It's about more than just following the trends; it's about curating a modest wardrobe that reflects who you are and how you shine for Him. Finding your style is a journey of looking within, threaded with purpose and confidence.

When it comes to dressing for your body type, the key is to embrace your body while exuding modesty. Let's explore how you can curate an elevated style that celebrates YOU in a beautiful, modest way!

Not sure what body type you might be? Take our easy quiz here!

  1. Hourglass:

   For those with an hourglass figure, choose dresses with tailored silhouettes that come in at your waist and gracefully fall over your hips. Opt for tops with structured designs and high-quality fabrics that exude sophistication. Pair them with skirts  like the Lennon Ribbed Skirt that offers a timeless fit no matter the top you choose.

  1. Apple:   If you have an apple-shaped body, look for dresses with empire waistlines or cinched waist lines that flow effortlessly over your curves, providing coverage without sacrificing style. Our apple girls love styles like the Reva Cinched Waist Maxi Dress. Choose tops with delicate detailing or draping that draws attention upward, creating a balanced look. Pair them with a-line skirts  that feature subtle patterns or textures to add visual interest to your ensemble.

  1. Pear:   Pear-shaped bodies, opt for dresses with A-line or fit-and-flare silhouettes that come in at the waist and gracefully flare out, creating a flattering shape. For example the Kate Midi Dress! Choose tops with modest necklines and sleeves that offer coverage while still allowing you to feel confident and stylish. Pair them with stretchy a-line skirts that feature subtle pleating for a touch of elegance.

  1. Rectangle:

   For those with a rectangular body shape, modest style is about creating a fit that feels feminine, while maintaining a sense of sophistication. Look for dresses with cinched waists or belted styles that add definition to your midsection. The Steve Madden® Arin Gathered Midi Dress is a perfect example!  Another great option for our rectangle gals (ok anyone really) is the Rory Midi Dress with the adjustable, cinch waist option! Choose tops with peplum detailing or ruffled accents that add volume to your silhouette, creating a feminine and stylish look. Pair them with skirts that feature structured designs or textured fabrics for added dimension.

  1. Inverted Triangle:

  Inverted triangle-shaped bodies are always lovely in dresses with A-line or fit-and-flare silhouettes that create a sense of balance and proportion. Choose tops with modest necklines and delicate detailing that soften the shoulders and create a more harmonious look. Pair them with full, a-line skirts that feature subtle patterns or draping for an elevated style that exudes confidence and grace. 

In conclusion, dressing with modesty and style is about more than just covering up; it's about embracing your individuality and expressing yourself with confidence and purpose. By finding styles that work with your body type and reflect your personal style, you can curate a wardrobe that makes you so excited to open your closet and be as beautiful as you are inside. So go ahead, embrace your shape, and elevate your style with confidence and grace.
