We live in a world of Instagram and TikTok, where people share seemingly everything about themselves, including their bodies. While it can be fun to let loose and show off, there are times when you want to be a little more modest in your look. Or, it may be too cold to wear those kinds of outfits.
That said, modesty doesn’t have to remove sexiness or stunning looks from the equation. Sometimes it’s better to leave something to the imagination. You can have a fun and sexy look even if you’re covered up to an extent. Here are eight versatile but modest outfits that you’ll love wearing.
Let’s start with as simple an outfit as you can have. A t-shirt maxi dress with short sleeves is very versatile since it fits when you are heading to the office or when you are going for a leisurely walk down the street. It has a hem that goes just above the ankles, and it is wrinkle-resistant so that you can pull it out of the closet at a moment’s notice. It works well in the heat and can be worn over a bathing suit. You can pair it with a cardigan and boots in the winter, and you’re ready for the snow.
Vintage Palazzo Pants
Black pants have long been a requirement for any wardrobe. Now you can add a little funk to it with pleated front palazzo trousers. They are durable and workmanlike, but they still look great in a retro way. Palazzo pants are genuinely seasonless. You can pair them with modest tank tops in the summer and add a jacket or sweater in the fall and winter. They have wide leg that flatters every leg shape. They can even be worn in professional settings and are truly versatile.
Blazers are back, and you can take advantage. Even if you don’t have a job requiring a blazer, it’s now acceptable to wear them in any setting. Instead of a black blazer that is versatile in its own right, choose a colored blazer for a fun, flirty look. They can be dressed up with slacks or leggings and a blouse, or you can have a relaxed look with jeans and a t-shirt. Choose a basic shade like tan for maximum versatility that will go with everything. You can go with red, pink, or yellow for a more flashy and fun look.
Scarf-Print Midi Skirt
Scart print makes a statement. On a skirt, it draws the eye much more than a black or monochrome skirt would. It is vibrant and bold and sure to turn heads. Because it has a loud pattern, it doesn’t always go with many tops. It can look like a million bucks, but you can pair it with a tee and flats for a relaxed look. Not only that but dressing it up for a night on the town with a turtleneck and boots. A white blouse will do the trick if you have a formal affair.
Cable Knit Sweater
The cable knit sweater is another classic wardrobe piece that goes with any weather other than extreme heat. It is breathable, so you can take it out on a spring day when you don’t know what the temperature will be like. It’s machine washable and dries quickly so that you can be on your way in a jiffy. The great thing about these sweaters is that they work at home on a quiet hike in the woods or fields and sitting in a coffee shop on a date.
Full Coverage Body Suit
Bodysuits tend to hug every curve of the body. Some of them are even almost see-through. However, you can get body suits that still hug your curves but are more opaque than the usual styles. That means that your bra strap doesn’t show through and that it also fits neatly into your bottoms without bunching. They have long sleeves, so they are perfect for a fall day. Bonus points if you can find a pair with snaps at the bottom for when you need to use the restroom. They can be worn out on a date with jeans or slacks, and they can even be dressed up with a midi-skirt.
Joggers In Disguise
Sometimes you want the comfort of joggers, but you want to hide the fact that you are wearing joggers. You can get terry fleece joggers that fit like trousers with a straight-legged cut. In fact, they look so much like trousers you can pair them with a shirt and matching tie for a formal event. However, they also have pockets and drawstrings, so you don’t have to worry about overeating at the buffet. You’ll love the soft feel to go along with versatility. If you’re the type that wears pajama pants to the store, try these instead for the confrontation without the rolled-out-of-bed look.
The cardigan is the perfect versatile piece for your wardrobe. You want to find a comfortable one, but it can be worn as a jacket. Sometimes you feel like a blazer would be too formal, but a sweater would look too relaxed. A dressed-up cardigan can toe the line and provide a balance between the two. Whether you’re taking a walk on a cloudy day, going to a poetry reading, or heading into the office, the cardigan is as versatile as they come.
Versatility is important in a wardrobe. Whether you’re on a budget and need to make your wardrobe stretch, or you spend a lot of time away from the house bouncing between meetings and functions, you need clothing that can adapt and be repurposed. So check out these versatile outfits and pieces that you will love.
