One of the most common issues that Muslim girls have is a question about options for buying a modest and appropriate dresses, and that's why I wrote this article to share my experience.
If you do not live in a Muslim country or you don't want to order this kind of clothes from Muslim retailers, it might be very tough to find dresses that would be appropriate to all your demands, especially at an acceptable price. In most of the cases, you should use at least two different clothes in the same time to completely cover your body parts. Some of the options for modest clothing that would look also good on you and will perfectly cover all your body parts are blazers, long skirts and maxi dresses that can be a good choice also for summertime.
But there are also several other clothes that you can easily combine by making them appropriate enough, so all will depend on your individual style and how much money are you ready to spend for it. Below I listed some of my favorite stores, where you can find modest dresses and clothes. Take a glance!
The Swedish store is my favorite spot to get clothes that are simple and modest. It has a plenty of choices that are excellent and their offers are regularly changing every season, so it is quite surely that you will get something you need. They have maxi dresses and long skirts all summertime and also on spring and autumn, besides for very nice prices. In addition, they offer plenty of short clothes which can be used as shirts together with jeans or shirts with shorter sleeves that can be combined with a jacket or shirt with longer sleeves.
H&M store may be the great place to find modest outfits as it offers many clothes that are suitable for all seasons that is quite advantageous. You can easily find many shirts with long sleeves in different colors there. They also offer short or long jackets with long sleeves of all kind of colors and knits that can be perfectly worn together with a sleeveless top. In addition, they have a wide choice of amazing and colorful scarves that are suitable for all seasons that makes this store the one of the best places for finding a modest clothing.
Another store that has affordable and low prices for clothes is Forever 21. This American brand is famous for its eclectic and fun fashion, so if you want to find some clothes with fun prints on it, you should visit a store of Forever 21.
Their clothing line and a wide choice of maxi dresses are competing to no one in the summertime because they are offering numerous designs and variations of them, from dresses with folds to tight-fitting A-line. They also offer a wide choice of colorful trousers and maxi skirts that are made of chiffon that might be completely lined. Similar to H&M, they also give you a wide choice of shorter clothes with short sleeves or no sleeves at all, that can be combined with trousers by wearing them as shirts. For all those who like cheap, but beautiful accessories, this store is the right place where to go. You can find here many interesting scarves with different textures and prints.
The Spanish brand Zara is like an H&M's relative who is just more elegant and fashionable. Both of these Western retailers usually offer collections and styles of clothing that look similar to each other, but the difference is that Zara provides more fashionable clothes. They do have a higher quality that results in higher costs and makes this fashion not so affordable.
Zara is an ideal place to get clothes that are stylish and qualitative. They are not actually famous for audacious prints, but you might notice that their items are very fashionable and different from others. They offer many varieties of skirts with long sleeves with different styles and cuts, but they also carry tops without sleeves and dresses that are short. Their maxi dresses and skirts might have slits, so they are not completely sheer. These dresses are very qualitative and look beautiful, so they might be an ideal choice for special events. So if you are searching for clothes that would be qualitative and trendy, Zara is the best place for it.
These three stores are my favorite choices for buying modest dresses and clothes, but these are not the only ones for that. You can find appropriate clothes almost everywhere; it all just depends on how you learn to combine different clothes to make them look modest and be appropriate to all your requirements. For buying clothes that are modest, I can suggest also places like Target, Joe Fresh, ASOS and The Gap. Also, you can try to sew and design them by yourself or ask some help from a tailor. In this way, you can find your own style by using a material, cut, and fabric that completely suits all your needs.
If you keep being flexible and innovative, buying outfits that are modest does not need to be a problem. Therefore, the next time you go for shopping, you should be open-minded that will guarantee that you will find numerous options for modest clothing.
