Modest Summer Outfits

In Summer, all we want to do is keep cool in the sun which means that a lot of the clothes you can buy expose your skin as a remedy to keeping fresh and sweat-free. It’s tricky to achieve breezy and modest as shorts, miniskirts and strappy tops are the uncovered go-to for most.

For starters, we recommend avoiding materials like corduroy, velvet, wool (for obvious reasons) and materials that are heavier as they are designed to be warmer and keep heat in, rather than be breathable. If you’re covering up, lighter materials are your best friend. This guide is here to help achieve modest fashion that keeps you cool whilst enjoying the sunshine this Summer. Making putting together modest outfits for Summer easier is the aim of this piece, and ensuring you have sunny staples that you feel good in too!

The number one option is opting for midi or maxi dresses for ultimate coverage. The length is a big tick and in an A-line flowy cut, you’ll keep cool with ease as well as looking super chic. If you picked out something tight and bodycon, this would only encourage heat retention and thus you’re asking for an uncomfortably sweaty time. A modest maxi dress is a sure-fire solution to your Summer wardrobe dilemmas. We know that necklines and sleeves can pose a challenge, which is why we love a shirt dress for guaranteed modesty. The button up neckline offers you control over your exposure and has longer sleeves to cover up your arms. Shirt dresses are typically designed in cotton or linen, the ideal materials to keep you cool despite the more covered fit which makes them the perfect style to look out for when you shop.

Light layering is also a way forward in utilising the pieces in your wardrobe that may be more exposing and including wardrobe staples like denim that you already own. In this outfit styling, pairing denim with a t shirt and lightweight shirt dress over the top promises easy breezy feeling this Summer as well as styling your seasonal go-to pieces a bit differently. For a fully covered look, the sleeves of this shirt dress can easily be rolled down and the flip-flops can be swapped out for white trainers and socks. Owning staples that can be amended to fit the coverage you want and can be adjusted depending on if you overheat or not is ideal.

The ideal modest Summer top is a lightweight shirt; owning trusted staples in multiple colours is the way of building a wardrobe you can rely on for casual Summer outfits. They are typically designed in cotton or linen which makes them breathable and perfect during the heat as well as being modest. These can also be layered and worn on top of t-shirts to ensure the arms remain covered whilst keeping you on trend as this is styling is currently very popular. We also love long sleeve and high neck blouses as they offer the most coverage and are often available in the most Spring/Summer friendly prints and shades.

Pair these kind of tops with a lighter wash jean- avoid dark colours at all costs and keep it light as you tend to overheat easier when wearing darker shades. A skinny jean will only make you hotter whereas a looser fit like a mom jean or a straight leg is perfect for everyday ease in the sun. For the fashion conscious, flared jeans are trendy but equally as covered as well as balancing your silhouette.

Achieving modest workwear in colder seasons is not as difficult, as most workplaces have guidelines in place to keep workwear “appropriate” and keeping warm requires being more covered. However, Summer work outfits are renowned for being tricky to navigate due to the combination of dress code guidelines with the heat. Light layers will also work well here, as blazers automatically smarten up your outfit. We recommend opting for a linen design as the lightweight material makes it ideal to keep you cool without showing skin. Flowy styles are your best bet, especially in the office, and wide leg trousers still look professional but prevent retention of heat and sweat which is perfect for the environment you’re in. Cinch yourself in with a belt, tuck in a white cotton shirt and throw on a linen blazer and done! This trouser fit will lengthen your legs too, which is an added perk to opting for this style!

Staying cool and professional in dresses for work is challenging, as they are usually shorter in length which makes modest Summer dresses a rarity. That’s why a jumpsuit makes for a perfect alternative as long sleeved styles are available for ultimate coverage. Avoid v-neck designs and opt for a round or high neck cut for more modesty. However, if a short sleeve v-neck style is all you can get your hands on, or you’re liking the one you’ve found but it’s not quite modest enough, we’ve got a solution. Layer a light long sleeve top or shirt underneath and it’s instantly a modest jumpsuit that’s also equally professional for the office. By incorporating these layers into your looks, you instantly open up your wardrobe and your shopping to different styles, including summery designs like our palm print jumpsuit. Styles like this will then brilliantly double as holiday outfits your suitcase is searching for!
