Modest Outfit Pairing/DIY: Flowy Floral Shirt (Part 1)

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I will most likely write a post in the future about modesty being way more than how you dress outwardly. Modesty ultimately starts in the heart. I am no fashionista, but I hope these outfit pairing posts will provide some kind of inspiration for those who are seeking some ideas for cute modest outfits! 🙂

For this particular shirt, I actually made it myself with a piece of spring looking floral fabric that I got on sale. Fabrics are SO expensive! *sad* so please comment and let me know where you get your fabrics or if you have any tips. I wanted to control the shape of the neckline so I used an existing shirt with a modest cut to be my template.

I love the vibrant colors and I knew I wanted something elegant, fun, and easy to match.The fabric itself is not stretchy so I made the shirt bigger and on the flowy side. This offers a wider range for styling and you can easily dress up or down these kind of shirts. Below is one way I chose to dress up this shirt. In a second post I will share a few more ways to style these kind of flowy shirts.

The white pants give the outfit a fresh spring look. It compliments the shirt well since there are white blossoms on the fabric. Since the top is more “busy” I wanted everything else to be on the neutral side, hence the brown belt and wedges.

In this picture, I paired the top with skinny jeans and added a brown tote purse that matches my wedges. Just another look for this style 🙂 The neckline is wide enough where I don’t feel like I am choking, but also safe enough where I don’t have to worry about accidents while bending down.

Stay tuned for part two including more ways to style these kind of shirts as well as my “lazy hemming” technique!

Keep Styling,

Carrie

  1. Cute! You are so creative. the belt you’re wearing makes a big difference to the outfit! I sometimes wear flowy tops that probably need a belt otherwise I look like i’m drowning in the shirt haha
