Modesty, sadly, has become a thing of the past in this culture where young women are encouraged to show as much skin and be as risqué as possible. This has, in my opinion, led to a devaluing of women and girls as people, placing the importance on how a woman looks and not who she is. If you are a woman or the parent of a young woman then you know exactly about the challenges women face in this culture when it comes to choosing a style of dress.
Dressing to compliment your body shape and style doesn’t have to include baring all. You can dress attractively while also being modest and this will help to boost your self- image in your eyes as well as others. The first step to dressing attractively is to choose the right size for you, nothing too tight or too small. The point is to have a shapely silhouette that leaves a lot to the imagination without any unseemly bulges or grand displays of bare flesh.
Next, choose cuts of fabric that drape your body in a way that your flaws are hidden and you assets are accentuated but not displayed as the main attraction. Fabrics that contain a high amount of elastic or spandex are certainly not recommended. Choose fabrics like silk or cotton that contour to the body’s shape without hugging it too tightly, giving the slightest hint of your amazing form.
When picking out a choice of clothing, forget the deep cut v neck and go for patterned scoop neck shirts or not-too-tight graphic tees. Jeans should be fitted enough for you to sit in without baring your underwear (or lack thereof) and comfortably breathe without any overlap of your belly. Concerning the ultra cute “skinny jeans”, if you feel that you must wear them then pair them with a flowing derriere skimming non form fitting scarf shirt to balance out the outfit.
Your choice of skirts doesn’t have to be at the top of the thigh ultra micro mini to be considered complimenting to your shape. A line skirts that flare just above the knee as well as boho peasant skirts reaching to the ankles are great alternatives. A line skirts and dresses are flattering to almost every body type and they don’t cling to every curve. Choose an A line skirt or dress in bold prints or crazy colors to make your statement that you can be stunning without being a sex symbol. You can also try the boho peasant skirts that are famous for their soft colors, classic length and flowing beauty. These skirts make the statement that you are at peace and sensual without being overtly sexy.
As all women know shoes can make or break the outfit so choosing the right pair of shoes to compliment your modest style will complete the outfit with a wow factor out of this world. High heels, although they are a girl’s best friend, can become a woman’s worst nightmare when back aches and foot problems cut your fun evening short therefore 5 inch stilettos are definitely out of the question. A great alternative to the classic high heel is the kitten heel which rarely goes over 2 inches. Wedges are another great alternative offering more support without the sexual connotation associated with stilettos.
Follow these tips to dress more attractively and modestly. They can help you bring together an aesthetically pleasing amazing outfit where your individual sense of style and personality will be the main attractions not your curves.
