As a modest dresser, I’m grateful that designers are incorporating items in their collections that can seamlessly blend into my everyday wardrobe. For a large part of my life, I spent extra time sewing up slits on dresses, going up in sizes to get a looser fit, and resort to ordering modest clothing from questionable international sites. Now, the modern day consumer’s desire for comfort has resulted in more loose-fitting, oversized, and covered-up options on than ever before. On the runways, we got everything from skirts-over-pants layering at Maryam Nassir Zadeh to ethereal maxi gowns at Peter Do, who continues to reign as the designer grabbing everyone’s attention during fashion month.
As much as I am grateful for the recent shift in the sartorial world, it’s hard to ignore that even when the global modest fashion market proved to be worth hundreds of billions, there was still a lack of attention towards us until something we’re wearing just happened to go mainstream.
There’s still a long way to go for modest representation, and that’s why I’m taking the matters into my own hands and styling the biggest modest trends for the S/S 2022 season below. There is no cookie-cutter image for a modest dresser, and everyone has their own definition, so while i took my own spin on these six trends, the options for you are still out there. Keep scrolling to get inspired and try out the trends for yourself. You won’t regret it.
