Coverage at Your Level

Defining what's modest clothing is tricky business and we know that everyone has their own specific level of coverage that they are comfortable with. For simplicity at Mode-sty we've created two categories: Medium Coverage and Full Coverage. We have defined them as:
  • Medium coverage: Short/elbow length sleeve, to the knee or below hemline and high neckline. 
  • Full coverage: Full length sleeves, full length hemline and high neckline. 
These two levels are the hardest to shop for because of the limited stylish selections at affordable prices. When choosing what we will carry, we always look for styles that are flattering with a looser fit so that you will not need to layer or alter. 
Once you no longer have to worry about coverage, we believe in showcasing your fashion sense with style, color, patterns and print. We want you to easily be able to find things that fit your life and enjoy shopping for clothing. To see some of the styles we love, visit our pinterest board which is organized by these two coverage levels. 
What do you think, does this categorization work for you? Let us know in the comments!

Designer Crush: Alexander Terekhov

Alexander Terekhov
We have a crush.
Actually we may be in love.
The object of our affection (and soon yours) is Russian designer Alexander Terekhov. We don't love him for his boyish good looks (he is adorable) but for his beautiful designs that are classic, feminine, modern and modest. Terekhov created his first dress at age 10 for his mother and now at 30 he has become a "designer to watch." His debut collection was in 2004 and in every collection since then there are pieces we love. However, for his Pre-Fall 2013-14 collection his choice of color, patterns and silhouettes is enough to make any girl swoon but for someone looking for stylish modest clothing it's a dream come true. Beautiful feminine silhouettes that are sophisticated and versatile- no layering needed.
So do you have a favorite? We want them all!

Making Modest Style Affordable

After looking through our Pinterest boardFacebook posts and Instagram we often get asked why we mostly show expensive luxury designers that are out of reach for the average women. People ask us to feature more inexpensive options that they could actually purchase.

The problem is there are very few beautiful, stylish, contemporary modest pieces at affordable prices. Which is exactly why we founded Mode-sty. At Mode-sty we are committed to stylish, modest and affordable fashion. Currently the marketplace looks like this:
