Dressing modestly doesn't mean you have to compromise on style. In fact, many modest looks allow you to experiment with the latest trends and styles because fashion is - at its heart - all about experimenting. As long as you know and understand what dressing modestly means to you, you'll be able to find pieces that meet your standards at Hampstead Bazaar.


Here's how you can stand out from the crowd without compromising on your modest fashion morals.


1. Get in on the Over-Sized Trend

Oversized silhouettes are all the rage when it comes to high fashion. From balloon sleeves to palazzo trousers, women's fashion is full of loose-fitting items that look amazing. A kaftan dress is also a great option as they usually have loose-fitting sleeves that help to keep you cool and give your outfit a soft and feminine feel without showing too much skin.

2. Wearing Tailored Trousers

Flattering your figure doesn't mean you have to wear skinny jeans or trousers that look like a second skin. Instead, opt for tapered linen pants that create a slim leg without revealing too much about your body shape.

Linen is also an excellent material for helping you stay cool in the summer without having to reveal too much skin, so it has that as an extra modesty benefit.


3. Accessorise

Accessories can help to finish off any look. From statement necklaces and chunky bracelets to bold belts, Hampstead Bazaar stocks accessories to suit any style without taking away from your modesty. As long as your jewellery doesn't emphasise a low neckline, it can be a classy way to make a statement whilst dressing modestly.


4. Layer Up

Adding layers to your outfit is a great way to stay modest and stylish for a number of reasons. Not only will adding a jacket or an item from our range of women's wraps and shawls help to keep you warm when the weather grows chilly, but they'll also keep your back and shoulders covered so you don't have to worry about having too much skin on show.

5. Take Note of Measurements

Measuring the length of your hemline and how long your neckline is really helps to keep your outfits modest.

The dresses at Hampstead Bazaar are designed with modesty and style in mind with all of them being knee-length or longer. If you do go for a slightly shorter dress, you can still keep things modest and stylish by adding a statement sleeve, jacket, shawl or wrap and making sure your chest is covered. If the dress you like is long in length but has a lower neckline, you can put a vest top underneath to cover more of your chest. Using a wrap or shawl will also have the same effect.

Having all these different fashion choices to hand means that you should never have to compromise on making a statement because you want to dress modestly.
