Luxury modest fashion e-tailer, , just launched its first ever in-house label, .
Born from "a gap in the market for fashionable, modern pieces for both every day and special occasions", the collection boasts a smorgasbord of wardrobe essentials and statement pieces that cater specifically to the modest shopper, but also to anyone with their finger on the fashion pulse.
So what will we all be wearing this season?
We caught up with The Modist's Fashion and Buying Director, Sasha Sarokin, to discover the biggest modest fashion trends right now.
1. THE MAXI DRESS/SHIRT DRESS
It’s bang on trend for the summer, keeps you cool in the heat and protects your skin from the sun - of course it’s perfectly modest and lightweight at the same time. Breathable fabric - cottons, linens and lightweight silks - are the absolute way to go.
Asymmetric Blush Dress, £445,
Silk Maxi Shirt Dress, £480,
2. OPTIC WHITE
This colour is huge right now, which is perfect for the summer. White is perennially chic, it looks good across the world and you can have fun in accessorising while still looking perfectly put together. Pair it with a great scarf or some fun wedges and you can never go wrong with bold jewellery; my favourite is a statement earring.
Embellished Tunic Dress, £695,
Silk Tie Shirt, £330,
3. PALAZZO PANTS
These are absolutely perfect for the warm season as well. At Layeur, we’re loving the full set in navy polka dot with a wide leg palazzo pant with a long top or even a lightweight blazer. All these pieces can work perfectly on their own, but they look amazing when paired as a full look.
Wide Leg Trousers, £200,
We really decided to own this shape in Layeur, so they’re super comfortable with an elastic waistband. You can wear them with heels or sneakers. I love mine in the deep red with a maxi top, which looks equally cool for a dinner by the beach or in a smart city environment.
Tapered Cropped Joggers, £295,
5. POLKA DOTS
This print is so fun and whimsical for the summer. At Layeur, we’ve interpreted ours with Lilac (launching on the site very soon!) which is also the color of the season. We put our lilac polka dot print on elevated shapes that refresh vintage romance with balloon sleeves and high necks.
Silk Voile Midi Dress, £1,343,
6. THE TUXEDO
An absolute classic and great for summer, a tuxedo is perfect whether going dressed up or dressed down. We made ours a bit more special, in ivory with black and gold embellishments. It feels a little bit vintage but perfectly on point for the graphic geometric look we’re loving right now.
Embellished Smoking Jacket, £680,
Embellished Wide-Leg Trousers, £470,
