To many, modest dressing when it's sweltering hot outside may seem massively counterproductive. When temperatures reach 40 degrees and the humidity makes it hard to breathe, the last thing you want to do is cover up. But for someone like me, who dresses modestly, I’ve found staple items that not only help me stay cool and look good, but also keep me fully clothed.
That’s why I wanted to make a list, because I know there are a lot of you out there who also prefer to dress modestly, and I’m fully aware of the struggle to find cute clothes that aren’t revealing. I like to define my style as minimal and classic. I rarely buy into trends, so everything you’re about to see are basic items, but ones that you’ll get a lot of wear out of.
