Essential Modest Tops: Mix, Match, and Style

As warmer weather beckons and you pack away your coats and parkas, essential modest tops indeed remain the building blocks of your wardrobe. Perfect to pair with a multitude of key pieces across your wardrobe, a few of these neutral staples can create numerous looks for all kinds of modest dressing needs.

These selections from INAYAH are essentially classic styles; they bring in an element of timelessness in all-weather appropriate shades that modest dressers would appreciate. They have the scope for dressing them up or down, depending on your mood, need, and whim. And additionally, we thought we will give you some fab tips on how to wear them best!

White Classic Top

A well-made white top is forevermore a wardrobe staple. And our White Classic Top ticks all that and more with its airy and light countenance. A stylish, boxy silhouette ensures a modest fit with flair, whereas the simple narrow cuffed sleeves add an element of interesting detail. The basic round neck is finished off with a concealed zipper at the back, and the side-seams have small finished slits for aiding in the fit of it all.

Fully lined so that there’s no untoward translucency, the top can be easily paired with all kinds of trousers and skirts, or layered with summer jackets. Depending on your personal style, we can picture it under a pastel tuxedo with a floral scarf, or tucked within a grey skirt and pinned with a pearl brooch. It would pretty much fit all kinds of modest fashion sensibilities.

Tips to wear your white top with style:

Always launder your whites alone. You do not want fibres and fragments from coloured clothes to latch onto your lights. And if at all you need it, a lint brush tucked away in a drawer at work can always come handy.

White outfits also tend to yellow over time. Replace or even better, buy multiples of your favourites. Since they are classics, they will not go out of style.

Spritz your perfume before dressing to avoid staining, and put on your lip colour or eyeliner after to avoid smudging.

A go-to spot and stain remover are a must-have in your bag while wearing white.


Nude Rayon Blend Top

Similar to our white staple, this Nude Rayon Blend Top is a star amidst our picks of essential modest tops. Great to pair with all sorts of colours or the same monotone family if you fancy, this top will play muse to all kinds of layers and signature pieces. Cut to fit loose, with simple straight sleeves, a round neck, and a straight hem, this too is fully lined (sleeves included) and non-flimsy.

In the world of neutrals, something about nude tones brings in an air of luxe, be it inspired by a bottle of foundation or the beige tones of a secluded beach. Case in point, this nude top can be elevated to an absolute dressy avatar when paired with rose-golds, black and grey pearls, and hijabs that have shimmery undertones.

Tips to wear your nude top with style:

A loose-fitted shape in a nude shade always works better. This top would look extra stylish with fluid, ambiguous layers.

If you tend to get very hot when the temperatures go up, smartly tackle sweat stains with a pair of underarm patches. The lining and finish of this top will ensure that you never have stains or visible aids!

Black and grey are extra ideals for pairing with nudes for breaking the monotony. Try a layer of either, or.

Since the shade is very skin-like, visually elongating heels look best with it. Try courts or slingbacks with pointy toes.


Dove Batwing Shirt With Dipped Hem

In our final entry for essential modest tops, this Dove Batwing Shirt With Dipped Hem concludes things with a very chic take on things. In a soft shade of dove that will complement everything from black to navy, this top  has a consciously over-sized, loose-fitted silhouette for ultimate comfort and style.

Featuring a faux placket up front which makes it way to a around Nehru neckline, the top additionally has batwing sleeves finished off with bands. The high-low dipped hem adds to its fashion quotient, while you pair it with our dressier kimonos, wrap front abayas, straight leg trousers, maxi skirts, or even with your well-worn, much-loved jeans.

Tips to wear your dove shirt with style:


Anti-fit has indeed become timeless. Exaggerate this silhouette by pairing the shirt with loosely fitted layers. Picture it with palazzo-style trousers, and an extra long scarf and boots.

Light greys, such as this shade of dove looks excellent when paired with darker colours.

Bring the dipped hem to the side and tie it in a knot for a different, balloon blouse kind of look.

Keep all jewellery or metallic accents to silver and antique silver tones.
