Modest Clothing: Modest Dresses & Tunics
Whether admiring Prada’s spring 2016 collection or the retro wardrobes in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., it’s clear today’s fashion evokes the mod styles of the 1960s—from simple A-line silhouettes to wildly colorful prints and monochromatic patterns.
Although the medallion designs of Zellij are an ancient form of Moorish Islamic art, they take on a modern twist when embroidered onto this Elicia tunic dress. The midi length tunic top features updated raglan sleeves, self fabric belt tie, and a soft chiffon lining for opacity. Crafted in no-fuss poly, the piece provides a great drape and is available in cream, forest green and black.
Dare to be different in this Kelia tunic dress with bold color-blocked panels and a fun, flouncy skirt. Cute, comfortable and convenient, its lightweight poly crepe fabric is breathable, soft and non-transparent.
Not your average tunic top, the Bazia boasts bold royal blue and white stripes with coral pink thrown in for a pretty pop of cool. The Moroccan-inspired banded neckline and hem take on a decidedly modern direction while the soft crepe lining maintains a conservative opaque appearance.
The 1960s was the decade of love yet that timeless message lives on in this black designer top that features the four-letter word artistically rendered in English and Arabic (Hubb)by Peter Gould. Made mostly of cotton with a touch of stretch, this baby-soft tee is cut generously so it won’t cling and comes in a hard-to-find mid-thigh length.
Feel like an artiste in this Rashida abstract print with tones of gray, charcoal, white and a touch of blue. Here, form follows function since the modest shift dress boasts an A-line silhouette with a bit of swing in the hemline while the crinkle chiffon fabricis fully lined in soft crepe to ensure a non-sheer modest look.
