Modest Ideas For Mass and Outside of Mass as Well! :)
When I first decided that I wanted to dress modestly to glorify God, I didn't really know where to look for tips and ideas. I searched on the Internet for days trying to find ways to turn things into modest pieces without looking like a grandma. I had to find my own sense of style, and I thought it would be great to share these with you. I hope you enjoy!
Disclaimer - Sorry for my funny looking facial expressions. I had my 12 year-old brother take these photos and sometimes the timing is a bit off... Plus, I have a pretty funny face ;) Enjoy!
This skirt is really pretty, it has red and white floral print on black. It's full length, and is super comfy! The shirt that I'm wearing - I actually got at the little store in our local Cracker Barrel (haha) for a pretty cheap price. It's got fake pearls and jewels on it, but it looks pretty :) I wore this outfit to Mass one weekend.
The skirt is another full length floral, this time with blue and white flowers on it. The shirt is a simple navy blue square neck shirt. Just to show that you can mix solids with floral and still look cute. I wore this to school one week and to Mass another, so it's pretty versatile.
This is actually an outfit made of my own clothes! I know! Fascinating! :) The skirt I bought in Spain, and the shirt I've had for forever. If my memory is right, I got it at Aeropostale, but they probably don't have this exact shirt anymore, since this is from at least four years ago... I wore this for school and around town. I wouldn't wear this to Mass because of the bright colors, but if I traded the shirt for a black shirt or something less vivid, it probably would look better...
This is an outfit I absolutely adore. I must have worn it at least three times this spring already! (NOT in a row, of course!) The skirt is a beige with almost a palm-leaf pattern and light coral flowers. It matches this shirt really well, and is really light - perfect for spring! The shirt is a sleeveless top with a square neck and three small buttons. It fits pretty loosely, so I like to wear a pink camisole underneath just in case I bend over so it doesn't show anything. :) It's really very comfortable, and I have worn it to Mass and to school.
This outfit (minus my lovely striped socks) is really formal-looking. It's a beige-y top with gold colored sequins around the collar (You can't really see them in this picture). The skirt is a slim, black stretchy skirt with a sort of beige leaf pattern. I think it's really nice, and I've worn it to Mass a few times this year.
The colors match really well, and this is a great outfit for a formal event, or going to Mass. The shirt itself is really low cut, so I threw a camisole underneath. The skirt is black with olive green leaves and a few little red flowers. Again, I'm loving the flower print!
I found this dress while going through my mother's clothes. It's a full dress, and very modest - no low neck and obviously it's full length. I haven't worn it out yet, but I plan on wearing it to Mass very soon!
This is just a plain black dress that I found while going through my mother's clothes (again... Yeah, I do that a lot! It's a cheap way to find clothes haha). Full length with a rounded neck. If you don't like the full black idea, then you can just throw a pretty top over it...
like this! Voilà!
Now it looks like you're wearing a plain black skirt and a top, but you've got them fooled!
So I hope this gave you plenty of new ideas for modest dress for Mass, school, work, and hanging with friends. I will be posting more outfits as they come, and as the season changes more, I will adapt to weather and invent some new outfits that are still modest and cute!
Let me know what you think! Also, I would love to know some of your modest outfit ideas are and where you get your modest clothes! I'm always looking for a good deal on clothes, so if you know a good place to shop, let me know!
