Fast Fast Fashion (And Modest Too)

It started with Zara.  Soon thereafter came H&M.  Topshop and ASOS have been doing it for a while, as is the fashion-forward way of our UK counterparts.  It is the fastest fashion to happen, and now it is also trending, in a big way.  These companies are pounding out collections to match (and possibly even rival) the likes of Céline, Balmain, Jil Sander, Tibi, Prada and Burberry Prorsum.  It is becoming less a sideways solution, and more de rigueur, to indulge in these fast fashion trends from the most popular chains in the world.  Can’t get your hands on the latest collection from Pheobe Philo?  No worries; get your breezy asymmetrical striped skirt topped with an African inspired pop-art brushstroke print tunic with a quick visit to Zara.  And if it isn’t near exact copies they are providing, at least you can pick up the trends à la mode that you need to complete your seasonal wardrobe checklist.  Sweatshirts, midi skirts, crop tops and fringed everything are all being produced and sold at lightning speed.

Just how fast is it?  Well you better log on quick, because as we speak the full midi skirts at H&M just sold out.  The more avant garde and high octane the look is, the faster it sells out.  It also doesn’t hurt that these pieces are being churned out virtually a couple weeks after the trends are shown on the runways.  It is a spoke in the wheel of instantaneous gratification and consumerism moving us forward, one which is nearly impossible to get off of.  Some may be against the permeation of the runways and deem it a travesty, but I don’t see it that way.  If we can indulge in floral bomber jackets, cool kimonos, larger-than-life midis, and the fringiest accessories around, without breaking our credit card’s sweat, then why not?

The Modest Outfit Diaries

It’s been said that a blogger’s outfit not posted is an outfit not worn.  Which means that my daily grind of outfitting myself is completely lost on the blogosphere since it never existed here to begin with.  It sounds like a small slice of sartorial quantum mechanics, yet somehow I get it.  If I wore it, but you didn’t see it, then does it make a sound?

So in an attempt to remedy the situation, I decided to record some of my daily ensemble choices into a theoretical diary of  “What-I-Wore”s for an occasional post.  It has been some time since I have graced the pages of my blog, and my unintentional sabbaticals do cause me some angst.  The itch my fingers feel when I place them on the keyboard is a tell all on its own as to the withdrawal I suffer as a result of my absence; a writer needs to write.  Thus, I will try to make up for the lost time in spades and present a compilation with the first batch of outfits I wore as of late.

Modestly Modified: Leather Leggings

In every modest girl’s life, there are trends we want to indulge in with the rest of the fashion troops, yet we find ourselves…left out.  Boyfriend jeans, harem pants, and the like, are all outside our reach as far as tznius fashion goes.  But sometimes we can navigate within our statutes and achieve sartorial enlightenment through a simple modification of the trend.  Simply put, find a way to wear the trends we can’t, in a way that we can.

Creativity is one of the greatest assets we have as modest fashion fiends, and it is a necessary means to a fabulous end.  A Modestly Modified post can lend insight and inspiration on how to wear the seemingly elusive styles we crave, with a covered-up twist.

Case in point: Leather Leggings.  I layered two tee shirt dresses for a slouchy look over the leggings and added the pumps to make it date night worthy.

A Modest Girl’s Guide: Weather The Winter And Still Look Chic

It is upon us.  At least from where I am sitting, it is full force winter.  This begs the age old question: What’s a modest girl to wear when it’s cold outside?  When you have to forgo the seemingly weather appropriate leggings and jeans, so what is left?

Thankfully being warm can also mean looking chic.  So double up on your opaque tights, and enjoy the world of winter fashion, full of the prodigiously perfect modest looks every tznius girl should don.

     Follow nature’s lead and do as the driven snow: opt for an all-white look, refreshingly classic with a modern twist.

     Low or flat boots are a fail-safe option.  For height, opt for a chunky heel for stability.

Disclaimer: For all my well-heeled girls out there, use discretion when stepping out onto the ice in a higher heeled shoe;  A slip-and-fall is never fabulous.

Modest Trend: The Pink Coat

This season the color pink has blessed us with an array of shades in the form of The Coat.  And not just any coat.  This is a menswear-inspired cut and the paradoxical brilliance is not lost on us.  The shape is masculine, yet the color is sticky sweet, oozing femininity.  Not to mention it was all over the fall runways, courtesy of Carven, Mulberry, and Celine, to name a few.  It has been redefined in a most sartorially cool way, and the proof is in the streets.
