1. A Throw On Cotton Maxi Dress
Shop the look: Blue Tie Dye Maxi T-Shirt Dress
Wearing breathable cotton fabrics during the summer months will help keep you cool and comfortable all season long. Whether heading to the beach on your vacay or running errands back home, slip on a fresh cotton maxi as a go-to essential. We love this longer style: it’s lightweight, loose-fitting and features a trending tie dye print. The dream.
2. A Trending Balloon Sleeve Blouse
Shop the look: Cream Floral Flowy Blouse
You heard it here first: the balloon sleeve is one trend that’s about to blow up this summer. Beautifully bold, these floaty sleeves are perfect for adding a little edge to your outfit, with a nod to new-season styling. To balance your curves, wear a balloon sleeve blouse tucked into a sleek midi skirt, and slip on a pair of nude, leg-elongating heels for dinner dates or catching up with friends.
3. A Summer-Ready Smock Dress
Shop the look: Sage Smocked Midi Dress
Perfect for garden parties, summer barbecues and family picnics, a smock dress is the comfy casual outfit you need to add to your summer closet. Opt for an empire line shape that cinches underneath the bust and flows down below the knee to fit and flatter the figure in feminine, floaty style. Wear with white sneakers or flat sandals to finish this laid-back look.
4. A Pretty Tiered Midi Skirt
Shop the look: Blush Satin Tiered Midi Skirt
Ready to be the best dressed guest at every event in your calendar? We love a floaty midi skirt, which pairs just as perfectly with a fresh cotton tee as with a floaty floral blouse, depending on your fashion mood. A tiered midi shape glides over the hips and kicks out at the knee, with gathered detail to flatter the figure. For a fresh, feminine look, mix pastel shades and pretty prints that are sure to stand out this summer.
5. An Elevated Essential Tee
Shop the look: White Ribbed Floral Sleeve Top
Investing in basics is the perfect way to build a capsule wardrobe. Opt for well-fitting staples, like a classic cotton t-shirt, made for mixing and matching with floaty midis, denim maxis, or even layering under kimonos and shackets to keep your outfit comfortable and modest. We love wearing v-neck styles, which are super flattering on a bigger bust, or those with a little extra design detail, like a slogan or printed sleeve.
6. A Feminine V-Neck Blouse
Shop the look: Floral Printed Frill Cap Sleeve Blouse
Pretty and fresh, a feminine blouse will complement any look in chic style. Try a V-shaped neckline to flatter a large bust, layering with a t-shirt for a modest look, and opt for cap sleeve detail to sit comfortably over tops of arms. We love this ditsy floral blouse, paired with a soft pastel midi skirt for an effortlessly elegant summer outfit.
7. A Perfect For Layering Kimono
Shop the look: Floral Lace Trimmed Kimono
Want to add a little extra ‘something’ to an otherwise plain outfit? A kimono is your go-to. Layer over any outfit, from midi dresses to denim skirts to leggings and a tunic, this summer essential will pull your look together, adding a pretty hint of print or pop of color. Wear the Modest Women’s Basic Layering Tank Top underneath for seasonal outfit layering perfection.
8. A Suits Everyone Shirt Dress
Shop the look: Short Sleeve Chambray Woven Maxi Dress
For those ‘I have nothing to wear’ moments, a shirt dress is your saving grace. We love a slightly oversized fit to slip on over a classic tee, giving you a summer-ready modest outfit to wear anywhere. For casual vibes, slip on a pair of fresh white sneakers while running around after the kids, or to dress up a little, pair with wedges and belt at the waist for more formal events.
9. A Goes-With-Everything Modest Denim Skirt
Shop the look: Claire Pencil Fit A-Line Denim Skirt
Modest denim skirts are easily the most versatile pieces in our closets. They pair perfectly with everything, from chic shirts and pretty blouses to a classic cotton tee. Our tip: choose a style to suit your figure. If you’re petite, try an elongating A-line cut to lengthen the look of the body, or to create an hourglass look, try a curve-enhancing pencil style. There’s a silhouette to suit everyone.
