MIXING PATTERNS ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


Sometimes I have trouble making floral patterns work -- they can feel too precious. What's great about all of the pattern mixing going on, is you can toughen up your floral looks. I feel like it's OK to mix patterns as long as they're in the same color family; and these stripes are special with some shoulder detailing. Also, none of this here is expensive. I picked the skirt up at the 5th Avenue H&M in New York, but you can find many like it at places like Zara or Topshop. This type of skirt tends to run a bit short, so if you have long legs use your judgement on length. To feel especially comfortable wearing full skirts that fall just above the knee, I would tell the Modest Girl to throw on a pair of opaque tights for a little more coverage. You instantly look chic and deceptively covered. I have searched far and wide for true black tights and my favorite are Vera Wang for Kohls.
