Wear Modest Maxi Dresses to the Max

Great thinkers have always been focused on the virtues of modesty. Back in ancient Greece, philosopher Diogenes said, “Modesty is the color of virtue,” while Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten observed, “When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the luster of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars.”

The Western world also noted the merits of modesty, as British writer Arthur Helps wrote, “There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit.”American author Louisa May Alcott added, “The great charm of all power is modesty.”

Centuries later, it’s no wonder modest dresses have remained a fashion staple for women around the world—and women online. Today, Artizara offers easy-to-order modest maxi dresses, kaftans and long sleeve gowns suitable for formal occasions and everyday wear.

Muslim Dresses Echo India’s Fashion Week

Amazon India Fashion Week just concluded in New Delhi. The five-day fashion event included designs from 25 of India’s most acclaimed designers who wowed attendees with fashions featuring Western/Indian fusion. Highlighting ethnic beauty, the collections collectively showcased:

  • Pablo Picasso-inspired dots on printed tops,
  • pre-stitched saris,
  • colorful ensembles with an emphasis on burnt orange and deep red,
  • and a finale of dresses with draped fabric.

Although the fashion show took place miles away, that doesn’t mean women in the US can’t incorporate these trends into their own wardrobes, especially with Islamic clothing.

Artizara has a soft Kina button-down top with dots. Made of 100% cotton, the item includes buttoned patch pockets and a rounded shirttail hemline.

Blending the essence of the fashion show’s pre-stitched saris with the recent runway color trends is Artizara’s Ella floral embroidered long tunic inrusset. Delicate embroidery on the front and back yoke of this Muslim clothing item evoke Boho chic sophistication in a flattering feminine way.

Like the show’s finale of rich-colored and long draped gowns, Artizara’s formal Muslim dress boasts a burgundy hue with matching scarf to drape down. The iridescent silk chiffon is hand pleated with asymmetrical panels and a layered cascade skirt that is longer in the back to form a train worthy of any red carpet or fashion runway.
