Modest Clothing for College Girls

September 26, 2023 ยท by Andrea Long

Dressing modestly for college doesn't have to be boring. There are plenty of stylish and comfortable options available. Here are a few tips:

  • Choose clothes that fit well. Clothes that are too tight or too loose will not be flattering, and they may also be revealing.
  • Pay attention to the neckline. A modest neckline is classy and sophisticated.
  • Consider the length of your skirts and dresses. A modest length is typically below the knee.
  • Layer your clothes. This is a great way to stay warm in the winter and to add coverage in the summer.
  • Accessorize. The right accessories can really elevate your outfit. Try adding a patterned layering top under a sleeveless dress. Throw in hair accessories and handbags that compliment your outfit.

Here are a few specific outfit ideas:

  • For a night out: Pair a black dress with statement heels. Or, try a midi skirt with a blazer and pretty blouse. 

Here are a few additional tips for dressing modestly in college:

  • Shop at consignment stores and thrift shops. You can find great deals on stylish clothes without breaking the bank.
  • Invest in a few key pieces. A few well-chosen pieces can be mixed and matched to create a variety of outfits.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment. Try different styles and see what works for you.

Remember, modesty is not about dressing frumpy. It's about dressing in a way that makes you feel confident and comfortable while also pleasing God.
