Modest Styles for Every Occasion
So there's this misconception that modest means boring, and that dressing modestly means there's no room for creativity, when in actuality, I think choosing to dress modestly almost forces us to tap into our creativity. As women of faith, we're challenged with keeping our style current, while finding a way to do it in outfits that look good, make us feel good, and still reflect that we are (and know that we are) daughters of the King.
Sometimes, finding the right outfit is a challenge, but it's not impossible. Here are some fashion finds that will keep you classy, cute and walking worthy of your calling.
