Modest fashion, according to google AND some other websites I looked up has no singular definition. Modest fashion means a whole range of things to different people as everyone’s perception of the term “Modesty” is different. However, it seems that one thing can be agreed on. Modest fashion is the consciousness of covering up as much skin as possible when putting together an ensemble. That said, it seems like every-time you search the hashtag #modestfashion or search the phrase online, you get images of women from a specific religion (Islam) and so it made me think…
Is modest fashion religious?
I thought hard and long about the it and the simple conclusion I came to is that modest fashion is NOT religious. It might just seem a little more obvious with our muslim sisters but they are definitely not the only ones embracing what this multi-million dollar fashion industry stands for. Modest Fashion is definitely something every woman should consider embracing one way or the other.
Now while some might read this and think I’m advocating for all women to be completely covered from head to toe with no patch of skin visible, Please, don’t get me wrong – That’s not what I’m saying. All I’m saying is embrace a little decency in what you wear. Modest fashion doesn’t mean boring, unappealing or unfashionable and in the near future I would love to see a lot more women of all religions embrace modest fashion. Who knows, maybe it’ll eventually lead to higher respect for women, their bodies, their beauty and generally reduce how objectified we are these days.
