Finding Your Flow: The Perfect Modest Maxi Dress for Every Occasion

April 05, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

Maxi dresses are a wardrobe staple for many reasons. They're comfortable, flattering, and can be dressed up or down. But finding a maxi dress that aligns with your sense of modesty can sometimes be a challenge. Fear not! With a few key considerations, you can find a modest maxi dress that makes you feel confident and beautiful.

What Makes a Maxi Dress Modest?

Modesty is a personal preference, but generally refers to clothing that covers a certain amount of skin. For maxi dresses, this might mean:

  • A higher neckline, such as a crew neck, boat neck, or high-neck.
  • Longer sleeves, such as elbow-length, 3/4 length, or full-length sleeves.
  • An opaque fabric that doesn't show through.
  • A looser silhouette that doesn't cling to the body.

Choosing the Right Modest Maxi Dress

Once you know what features you're looking for, you can start shopping! Here are some tips for choosing the perfect modest maxi dress:

  • Consider the occasion. Are you looking for a dress for a formal event, a casual outing, or something in between?
  • Think about the fabrics. Flowy fabrics like chiffon and crepe will drape beautifully and offer more coverage.
  • Don't forget the fit. A well-fitting dress will flatter your figure and make you feel more confident.
  • Accessorize! The right accessories can take your maxi dress from day to night.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • For a casual look: Try a solid-colored maxi dress with a high neckline and elbow-length sleeves. Dress it down with sandals or flats, or dress it up with wedges and a statement handbag. Try our Picnic for Two dress for a fun, no-layering-required maxi!
