Modest Street Style

I just came across these street style photos over at Vogue.co.uk and was pleasantly surprised to find these fashion-forward yet modest outfits.

First up is this photo of Mary Kate Steinmiller in a beautiful flowing grey maxi skirt, teamed with a t-shirt and cropped leather jacket. I love this city-chic look and the way different textures and fabrics are contrasted. Try skipping the belt for a more modest fit around the waist:


Next up is a similar outfit - a simple blazer over a grey jersey dress. I'd pair it with a looser dress for a more hijab-friendly look, but it gets a thumbs-up for a great day-to-evening ensemble; just add accessories...


This next look is great for summer; a checked shirt worn open over a plain black maxi dress. I love the mix of casual and feminine pieces, and it looks really comfy too! Top marks for style and modesty:


Another spring/summer look, this cute printed skirt looks great with a long cardigan; just pop that scarf up over your head and you're hijab-ready!

love em all, truly! My biggest whinge is that whenever I 'mix n match' parts of an outfit no-one says 'that's cool' but when it features in vogue magazine.. well.. hmph! sulk!

Pretty nice, except for the fact that I'm not crazy about jersey dresses. Clingy and all.
But again, nice ideas.
