New Year, New You, New Modest Wardrobe?

January 07, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

January is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. It's the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe, and for those who dress modestly, that can be an exciting challenge. But fear not, fellow fashionistas! There are tons of amazing trends and styles out there that are both chic and respectful.

Here are a few of my top picks for modest clothing in January:

1. The Cozy Knit

January is all about staying warm and comfy, and what better way to do that than with a cozy knit cardigan? A longline cardigan can be dressed up or down, making it a versatile piece that will take you from the office to brunch with friends. For extra warmth, layer it over a turtleneck or a flowy maxi dress. We love the Cozy As Can Be cardigan - a staple for every closet!

2. The Statement Skirt

Midi skirts are always a flattering choice, and there are so many great options to choose from this season. For a touch of personality, try a printed or textured skirt. Pair it with a simple top and some ankle boots for a chic and effortless look. Our Spin Me Around skirt is the perfect statement midi for year round!

3. The Layering Master

Layering is a great way to add depth and dimension to your outfit, and it's also perfect for modest dressing. Try layering a cami under a flowy blouse or a turtleneck under a sleeveless dress. You can also add a scarf to complete the look. Our A New Beginning dresses in midi and maxi lengths are perfect for layering beneath a chunky sweater, blazer, or cardigan. Our Layered in Love dresses are also customer favorites - true layering staples!

4. The Power of Prints

Add some variety into your closet with prints. From florals to polka dots to geometric patterns, the options are endless! Take a summery printed dress from warm to cool weather by adding a chunky sweater or blazer. Prints bring dimension to an outfit and add a flair of femininity to your style. The Dreaming Through the Windowpane dress is a cozy print that will be your go-to all winter long!

5. The Accessory Accents

No outfit is complete without the right accessories. For a modest look, try a statement handbag, patterned shoes, and fun hair accessories (like headbands, hairpins, scarves, and claw clips). 

Bonus Tip:

Remember, confidence is the best accessory you can wear. Rock your own unique style and don't be afraid to experiment!

I hope these tips help you find some amazing new pieces for your January wardrobe. With a little creativity, you can easily put together stylish and modest outfits that make you feel confident and beautiful.

Happy shopping!
