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.

The Sweatshirt: Modestly Inspired

This season it seems the ultimate style staple may very well be The Sweatshirt.  The street style arena has been filled with this particular piece, and it is just the coolest top we could have ever prayed for.  It is casually classic but most importantly it is unexpected;  who would have foreseen this barrage of sweatshirt-meets-chic skirt pairings taking over the streets?  In fashion, the unpredictable serves us well and we are always thinking up newer elements of surprise.  This one is perfect and definitely fits the bill, by sitting squarely between being dressed up and dressed down.  The printed options are popular but you can achieve the look with equal panache by donning a plain old sweat-top.  Wear it alone, or layered over a button-down, and pair it with leather pencils or full midis for that cool-girl style we can’t get enough of.
