A couple of months ago STC announced that we were going to be curating modest outfit ideas on the trending fashion site, Polyvore. Our goal was to offer a place of ideas for women who desire to dress modestly.
We’ve had a lot of fun building outfits for you so we decided to create some modest autumn looks!
Plus we’re gathering a list of modesty resources because we know they can be tough to find! We’ll do our best to update you as we find more – & we’ll keep on creating outfit ideas too!
Eight of the most charming fall outfits!
Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a fashion obsessed girly girl, but some of those outfits are so charming – I’d like a few!
Are you ready for some modesty resources that we’ve gathered? Can you hang on one more second? There is one little thing I’ve got to say. I understand that modesty is a touchy subject and to some of you the outfits I’ve designed may seem like the prudish clothes of spinster and to others these clothes may seem brazen and revealing. (I personally think they are cute, modern, and modest!)
I’m not going into modesty rules and arguments here for one simple reason – I don’t have any. Yup. That’s right. Modesty is hugely important to me (my friends and family can vouch that I talk about it all them time!) But I don’t have rules and regulations, because the Bible doesn’t really have them. (I know it addresses women dressing a bit, but not in great specifics.)
My modesty, and the outfit ideas I offer you, stem from deep personal conviction, and from a time when I did dress brazenly in revealing clothes. God did a heart thing in me that caused me to desire and be passionate for modesty – no church, no book, no blog created that desire in me.
All this to say the Holy Spirit is my convicter (among his many other roles) and it’s His leading I (try to) follow in all things, including my dress.
Thanks for understanding! (This post from ADivineEncounter.com matches my thoughts pretty clearly!)
SHOPS: (Note: Not every item at these stores is modest, but they all have several modest selections!)
Kosher Casual (Psst: They even have modest workout clothes!)
Jami from Young Wife’s Guide has a lot of biblical based wisdom regarding modesty and I value many of the posts she has written. I highly recommend her site for other reasons, but her modesty posts are especially worthwhile.
Olivia is another young woman who is in love with God’s heart for modesty and she has great taste! You can see lots of modest fashion ideas on her blog, Fresh Modesty.
Iris from FeminineModesty also has some charming modest outfit ideas, her blog is full of cute outfits and positive thoughts on modesty!
Do you have any favorite modesty blogs or stores? We’re always on look out for more sources so feel free to leave a comment + link. We hope you’ve enjoyed this list!
