Hello there 🙂
When I started my modest dressing journey, the options weren't as great as the market you see today. I kept bringing things to tailors, buying a few sizes up, and leaving stores in the summer frustrated and empty-handed. While even more space is needed for brands with a modest focus, shopping is now much easier (even in warmer climates). The latest trends consist of oversized silhouettes or creative layers. I can take a look at a variety of designer collections and find several looks that I can think of.
I'm a market editor so it's literally my job to keep up with what's new in the shopping scene and find the best of the best. If you're a humble dresser and want to add more brands to your radar, the list I've put together is for you.
Founded by U.S. Olympic fencing medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad, Louella is a humble brand that creates easy-to-wear pieces that are not only stylish but also provide comfort with loose and forgiving silhouettes.
ASOS Design is a hotspot for clothing that is affordable. It even offers a modest clothing category on the site and works with influencers like Shahd Batal to provide a capsule work that suits the tastes of modest dressers appropriately.
When I imagine my dream wardrobe, Nanushka items are in the mix. (Yes, I definitely manifest this.) Everything the brand releases is always forward and luxurious, while combining fun elements like bright colors and unique silhouettes.
If you want to upgrade your casual wear, Madewell is for you. Madewell meets the line of trends and basics with pieces that you can wear every day but which you will never get bored of.
While it is easy to find a bikini almost anywhere, modest swimwear is not. Lyra Swim is a brand that will put you under the spell (literally) for any swimsuits or clothing needed for the beach.
Hana Tajima is a UK-born humble designer and has worked with Uniqlo to bring out a collection each season. Her pieces are always filled with comfortable and airy items that come in raised neutral colors like cream, rust, and sage green. The collection also often works with Airism, Uniqlo's innovative fabrics that have the technology to wick away moisture and give off heat. This is perfect for those who need to cover up during the warmer months.
Rixo designs special clothes that you will always enjoy. (Just looking at them puts a smile on my face.) The brand offers a variety of cuts that are perfect for a humble dressing, while at the same time mixing in prints and colors that you won't appreciate anytime soon become.
LA-based designer Marwa Atik saw a void in the fashion industry for hijabs that were comfortable and elevated and decided to fill it on her own terms. In addition to creating the best scarves I've ever worn, Vela Scarves is constantly pushing the boundaries with products that help modest dressers like a hoop to style their scarves and matte magnets to keep your scarf in place to keep.
Ganni is one of the brands that has consistently inspired me to be more creative with my layers, which I rely heavily on as a humble dresser. Ganni reminds me that if I want to dress modestly, I don't have to sacrifice my maximalist style.
Consisting of a neutral color palette and minimalist design, Frankie Shop makes investment-worthy clothing items that you will undoubtedly keep in your closet for years.
