If you prefer a more modest silhouette, you're in luck. There were lots of great dresses in 2015 that were not only on trend but also were quite demure. If you are looking for a new dress that doesn't expose a lot of skin but is still fashionable, read on to find out what your options are for new modest dresses.
High necked Victorian style blouses were all over the runway for Fall 2015. Victorian refers to the reign of Queen Victoria of England in the 19th century. Victorian style clothing refers to the cuts and styles of clothes that were popular during that time. Modern day Victorian style dresses come in many colors and patterns but are often featured in white or cream. They have a high neck that buttons at the throat, and full sleeves that button at the wrists. The dresses are featured in a longer cut that comes past the knees and often fall to the ankles. This style looks great with boots and long earrings.
Midi length refers to dresses and skirts that fall below the knee and hit around the shins or calves. They were a strong trend for Spring and Summer 2015 and are a continuing trend for Fall 2015. If you have midi length garments that you wore in the summer in darker colors, just add boots and a turtleneck for a cute fall outfit.
Full Length Vest
Full length vests are a piece that can be added on top of an existing dress or skirt for a trendy look that also provides more coverage. This is a great option for modifying a dress that is just a bit too short in the back. A vest that is made out of thin sweater material will help keep you warm and also modest.
Sweater dresses that are of a boxier cut are cozy and blur the lines of your body just a bit. Fuller cuts for dresses were popular for Spring and Summer 2015. Trapeze and swing dresses that fall away from the body are trendy and comfortable. Add thick cable knit tights and ankle or knee boots.
Dressing modestly can still be fashionable. Although it seems like skimpy dresses and mini-skirts are often what is considered trendy, 2015 saw a return to sensible and demure dressing that all women can enjoy. Take your pick of any or all of these options for a great fall wardrobe.
