Modest Is Hottest: 4 Ways To Dress Conservatively Without Losing Your Style

We are all unique beings, and most people have some sense of personal style, no matter how subtle this might be. Some love to be a little bold with their style, but this may not be appropriate at all times. At some point in life, you will probably have to dress a bit more conservative. This could be for a meeting, interview, event, or perhaps you are entering the corporate world. Many feel they have to give up their sense of style, but this is not so. You just have to make a few adjustments that will allow your true self to shine. The following 4 tips will help you do just that.

Choose the Right Accessories

The right accessories can make or break an outfit, but they also offer you a way to show your style. For example, if you like big rings, you could wear one and put the others away. If you have a lot of vintage accessories, here is an opportunity for you to showcase a few for the world to see. One of your stylish bracelets or necklaces will work here, too.

An interesting tie might do the trick, too. It should be unique enough to break the rest of the outfit. Keep in mind that regular ties are solid or striped. Some can get away with using a handkerchief or an interesting bowtie, too. A woman could get a little more interesting and use a tie, which is traditionally for men. 

Incorporate Your Favorite Colors

You can maintain your style by incorporating your favorite colors into your conservative outfit. One way to do this is by opting for a colored belt, blouse, or dress shirt. This bold item will serve as an accent. You should also consider layering shirts with lighter shades of the same color. This will give your look an extra pop.

A good way to choose the right colors is to look at your eyes. Some colors look great with certain eye colors. You can match your eye color with the color you choose to wear, or you can wear the exact opposite. For example, blue-eyed people can wear blue or orange.

Spruce up Your Hairstyle

You could leave your outfit conservative and get a bit daring with your hairstyle, especially if you love to wear different hairstyles. You might want to consider adding a few highlights. You could also get a little interesting with braids. Everyone knows pigtails, but there are many types of braid styles out there, and this might do the trick.

The hairstyle does not have to be too insane but rather a little unexpected. Good examples of unexpected hairstyles are Dutch braids or even a fishtail braid. Of course, some styles are more obscure like a zig-zag fishtail braid.

Let Your Shoes do the Talking

Your shoes can be the star of the show. Try to choose shoes that are a little unorthodox; for example, wear snake skin shoes instead of solid colored shoes. Women may need to go a step further since footwear for women is so varied. It might be a good idea to go vintage or maybe pull the same "tie" trick as before, except you will wear classic dress shoes that are normally meant for men.

These tips should help make sure that your style blends with your conservative look. There is no need to hide who you are, and you can show this is in everything that you do, including what you wear. It is only natural to want to stand out, and you should.
