Modest or Not?What do you think of this open shoulder and bare arm shown in this ensemble?

modest fashion and styles for modern womens clothing and mormon apparel

This vest from Milly puts the fun in function; it’s bright colors and denim details add a quick pick-me-up to any outfit. A bare shoulder and arm are not the focus of this ensemble, as your eye is drawn towards the center high neckline and tucked waist by way of the contrast between bright white and bold color. Yet, it could easily be the line in the sand for some modest Mollys. Let us know your thoughts on this Spring piece!

Does pairing this vest with a sleeveless top and fully modest skirt detract from an otherwise demure look?

The active-sportswear trend has been permeating fashion for the last few seasons, complete with relaxed bomber jackets, cozy leg warmers (seen in Prada’s Spring ‘13 campaign), and innovative sneaker designs from the likes of Rick Owens and Nike. Amongst all this sport luxe wear remains the sweatshirt, the star player.

The sweatshirt is the pinnacle of fashion’s reinvention capabilities, and it deserves to be explored by your individual style.

Modest or Not?Pretty prints & appropriate length for modesty give this dress big points, but how much cut is too much?


modest fashion blog with kate spade dress for mormon apparelA pleated knee length skirt and a capped sleeve appear to make this Mariella dress from Kate Spade a perfect choice for church events, family parties, and even the office. Upon closer examination we find another understated detail; a scoop necked back. If the front of the dress was cut like this we might be quick to label it too risqué and immodest. With less fabric in the back this piece has a chance at straying from your personal values.  Is the cut too much?

Does Kate’s dress keep modesty in check, or will you choose a safer option this season?

Spring fashion trends and looks for modest clothing

If you have been shopping in the past few years, chances are you own one or more samples of our Spring trend highlights. Peplum, stripes, prints, lightweight leather, bold colors, and lace have made their presence known in seasons past, in fact we featured stripes and prints in our Spring trends article from 2011.

The prevalence of these trends has turned them into seasonal staples that carry the ability to shape your wardrobe into a modern Springtime repertoire of must have pieces. These trends may not be groundbreakingly new, but nothing in fashion ever is. It’s the evolution of modest style, the recycling and repurposing of trends and looks that keep fashion’s landscape dynamic and interesting, and thus your closet!

Sunday BestThis outfit is certainly modest in fashion, but is the skirt length and bare leg appropriate church clothing?

This week, La Petite Anglaise styles a look shot by Craig Arend, in response to Suzy Menkes’ scathing article about the fashion blogger circus going on outside the runways at Fashion Week. Suzy, and other experts, clearly have “blogger-beef” for good reason, but fashion blogs like La Petite Anglaise, are great style inspiration everyday when planning your wardrobe.

We’re loving this bright, bold look for Sunday service. The contrast of chartreuse, deep blue and rich salmon grab the eye- without distracting from the pulpits message.

Would you wear this outfit to church?
