MODEST EVENING DRESSES? YES!

Long sleeves are back in style!

Here are some of the stunning dresses that have recently captured the media, bringing a fresh focus back to the elegance of modest fashion. In these past months there has been quite the hype about the two recent royal weddings. Even a couple months past, these fairytale dreams come true are on everyone’s minds.

Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex after her wedding in England on March 19th wore a dress designed by Claire Waight Keller. The young director of the French fashion and perfume boutique, Givenchy, is known for her work with Hollywood and her simple, sophisticated, and elegant designs. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress lived up to the designer’s reputation. With long sleeves, a boat neckline, and no flourishes or extra furnishings in sight the dress was the epitome of elegance topped only by the joy in Meghan’s smile!

At Alessandra de Osma and Prince Christian’s wedding in Peru on March 16th Allessandra’s wedding dress also sported long sleeves and a high neckline. Designed by Jorge Vázquez, yet again a modest and graceful dress captured the attention of the fashion world.

But don’t despair…white is not just restricted to wedding wear. White dresses are really versatile. A white maxi dress is great for summer days and occasions that call for something a bit more elevated. Lace may be too formal but embroidered cotton eyelet takes the white long sleeve summer dress in a sweet, romantic yet refined direction; a great look to dress up or down.

Weddings were not the only popular events to have showcased renewed trends of modest fashion. The 2018 Oscar’s red carpet was rich with color, glam, style, and plenty of long dresses with long sleeves and modest taste. The red carpet never ceases to amaze with the sheer variety of styles and fashion on display, so here we have chosen a few favorites to highlight.

Elegant and chic this long sleeve evening dress is the perfect representation of our favorite Disney ice princess Elsa.

Ashanti’s Gorgeous Gold Long Sleeve Dress

Fashion advice from industry experts

Fashion advice from industry experts

“Whenever someone comes up to me and says, ‘I’m having trouble shopping.’ I tell them to pull out their 10 favorite, most-worn pieces, then build a wardrobe around them,” says American author and fashion designer Lauren Conrad. “Those staples are going to be different for everybody.”

While wardrobe staples may differ from one person to another, it’s true everyone can benefit from fashion tips—especially if they come from designing icons and other newsmakers.

“What works with your skin and eyes? Use that to zero in on your wardrobe,” suggests designer Tom Ford. The legendary Christian Dior has said black is essential to a woman’s wardrobe because, as he put it, “You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion.”

“For my wardrobe, I like to invest in classic pieces and pair them with more trendy new pieces and accessories each season,” notes Liya Kebede, Ethiopian-born model, maternal health advocate, clothing designer and actress.

Meanwhile, men such as Scottish musician Guy Berryman and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli also have a say. Berryman’s advice is, “Just keep it simple. When you overthink what you’re wearing, that’s when wardrobe malfunctions tend to happen,” while Kohli admits, “I want my wardrobe to be full of good clothes, so that when I’m deciding what to wear, I don’t run out of options. I love shopping!”

If you love shopping and want to take the tips of from these fashion experts, check out the Islamic clothing at Artizara which features the wardrobe staples Conrad mentioned and the classic pieces Kebede spoke of, including Muslim dresses in Dior black as well as Muslim clothing in green, blue, and a variety of other colors to bring out your eyes.
