May 24, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

Summer vacation is a time for relaxation, exploration, and creating memories that last a lifetime. As you pack your bags and dream about sunshine-filled days, don't forget to consider your outfits! Finding stylish yet modest dresses can sometimes feel challenging, but fret no more. Here's a guide to help you curate the perfect modest vacation wardrobe:

Flowy and Flattering:

  • Maxi Dresses: A timeless vacation staple, maxi dresses offer comfort, elegance, and versatility. Look for breezy fabrics like cotton or linen in solid colors or fun prints. Think about styles with empire waists or a-line silhouettes that flatter a variety of body types. Try the unique silhouette of the Sunhat Soiree dress - a perfect choice for a tropical vacation!
  • Midi Dresses: Offering a touch more coverage than shorter styles, midi dresses are a great option for sightseeing or a casual dinner. Choose a shirtdress style for a polished look, or a tiered dress for a more whimsical feel. You'll love the A-line Summer in Spain dress

Consider the Details:

  • Necklines: Opt for higher necklines like boatnecks, crewnecks, or stand collars. If you prefer a v-neck, choose a style that isn't too revealing.
  • Sleeves: Short sleeves, flutter sleeves, or 3/4 length sleeves all provide sun coverage while keeping you cool.
  • Fabrics: Natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and chambray are breathable and comfortable in hot weather.

Accessorize for Amplification:

  • Hair Accessories: Layer on sparkly headbands or cute clips to add personality to your outfit.
  • Bags: Pack a tote bag for exploring or a cute crossbody bag for evenings out.
  • Shoes: Comfortable sandals or wedges are perfect for vacation wear.

Modest Vacation Dress Inspiration:

Here are a few specific dress ideas to get you started:

The Classic Button-Down Midi Dress: This versatile style can be dressed up or down, making it perfect for various occasions. Pair it with sandals for a daytime look, or add a blazer and heels for a more polished ensemble. The Sorbet Under the Sun is a classic style with darling details to make it extra special!

The Printed Maxi Dress: A flowy maxi dress with a fun print is perfect for a carefree vacation vibe. Choose a style with a higher neckline and long sleeves for a modest touch. Try the Meadow Musings dress! With its smocked detail and summery print, you can step out in style wherever your destination!

The Shirtdress: A shirtdress is a polished and put-together option for exploring or grabbing lunch. Choose a dress with a longer length and pair it with sandals or wedges. You can't go wrong with the Honeybees and Hydrangeas dress

With a little planning and creativity, you can find modest dresses that will make you feel confident and stylish on your summer vacation. So, pack your bags, grab your favorite dresses, and get ready to create lasting memories!
