Thank goodness fall has finally arrived! Now at least I can stop worrying about keeping myself appropriately dressed in the heat of summer. Whether it’s playing with the kids at the swimming pool or choosing something modest for work, trying to find suitable outfits to cope with summer temperatures can be so difficult.
For me, autumn clothing is all about layering. It’s about finding items that work hard, cover all the bits I need to cover, and which look good too.
From shift dresses and midi skirts to hooded sweaters, flannel shirts and long coats, layering gives you so many different options to create fashionable but modest outfits for all occasions.
Four Quick Ideas for Modest Fall Clothing
Let’s talk a little more about dresses. There are plenty of modest dresses available for women that will give you the coverage you need without sacrificing fashion. For example, take a look at some of the dresses available from Twirl Dress Boutique and you’ll see that they offer all kinds of dresses from casual options to stylish but modest maxi versions.
And what’s more is they’re all available at great prices too. I love this site as they’ve got an affordable selection of dresses, whether you need something for a brunch meeting with your prayer group or you want something a little more formal for an evening event.
Another great fall basic is the midi skirt. You’ll find plenty in stores right now in all kinds of fabrics. I’ve found that midi skirts have been a great addition to my closet as they’re practical and modest of course, but they still have an element of style.
Midi skirts are the perfect option for busy working moms as they’re an easy way to look professional and stylish in the office, but they can also be a staple in your casual wardrobe too.
They pair well with boots, shoes or sandals and can be dressed up or down to suit all kinds of informal and formal events. Add a simple blouse or a sweater and throw on a long coat if the temperatures drop and you’ve got the perfect fall outfit for all kinds of occasions.
I’m willing to bet that most of you have a flannel shirt or two in your closet. And who can blame you? They’re soft, snuggly and, most of all, comfortable. They’re a quick and easy option when you want to cover up as they fit perfectly over t-shirts and sweaters to add an extra layer of warmth, or they can simply be worn alone.
I suggest choosing a traditional plaid flannel shirt for extra versatility. They’re available in a range of gorgeous colors, and their classic button-down fronts, roll tab button up sleeves and relaxed fit mean that you’ll always be comfortable, and look stylish too.
One last item no fall wardrobe should be without is a hooded sweatshirt. These are great for throwing on when the temperature dips and your trusted sweatshirt will keep you looking chic at weekends when it’s time to hit the play park with the children. After all, even though we all want to look good, we also want to be warm and comfortable too!
I hope these suggestions will help you to better equip your fall wardrobe with some key pieces for work that are modest and stylish at the same time.
