In a world full of trends, classic modest clothing have the tendency to stand out the most. Whether it is a crisp, tailored shirt, or an elegant wrap-dress, timeless fashion will continue to be at the heart of it all. We at INAYAH have always been partial to the classic aesthetic, juxtaposing contemporary elements within evolved classics. And consequently, this reflects in our sense of inspired style aimed at those who appreciate the beauty in simplicity. Effortless and elegant, these picks reiterate this very philosophy, within silhouettes that are relevant, tasteful and of course, classic.
Light Sand Nehru Kimono Dress
Within your repertoire of modest clothing, the versatility of a dress, such as this one, is endless. The Light Sand Nehru Kimono is a pristine take on the juxtaposition of two much-loved silhouettes. It brings together the breezy elegance of kimono-inspired elements alongside the fuss-free countenance of a distinctive trapeze. Flouted kimono sleeves and a buttoned Nehru collar lend careful attention to detail. Fluted kimono sleeves accentuate the defined shoulder. And this is all tied together by the removable self-fabric belt that helps cinch the waist that is lightly gathered to create hem volume. The woven fabric helps bring structure in the flared drop down, while the fluid cut renders itself elegant without much of a fuss.
The flawless sand-inspired colour works beautifully for daytime engagements, but will also suit evenings too. The dress is neither casual, nor formal, making it easy to dress it up or down. Wear it with strappy flat sandals and your favourite sunglasses for some afternoon chic. Pin on a bejewelled brooch on the belt or add a pair of exaggerated earcuffs and heels for the evening.
Black Jersey Slip Dress
Make way for the new layering star, the Black Jersey slip Dress. With endless styling versatility, this is one of those signature pieces you will touch base with time and again. Crafted in soft luxuriant jersey, and in a power shade of black, the dress is cut with a classic shift silhouette. A round neck, a straight hem, and a concealed zipper at the back complete it. There is no matching the beautiful drop and drape of jersey, and this reflects in this dress while you layer it with extra coverage. And literally, the scope for layering is endless.
For a formal look, wear it with a collared shirt and pearls for a very Breakfast at Tiffany’s-esque look. Try a biker jacket and a pair of booties for an ensemble that is very chic and very street. Wear it under one of our elegant open-front abayas and a georgette hijab for a subdued look. Or simply club it with a jewelled style such as this, and a pair of heels for the evening. You get the gist. One dress, one hundred looks.
Rose Taupe Duster Coat
Replete with the sartorial ease of a good, classic duster, the Rose Taupe Duster Coat is a veritable outerwear choice for your modest clothing. Crafted in a luxurious weave that has a subtle sheen, the ankle-length coat works well for both night and day. A broad notched collar gives way to a waterfall lapel to create a statement neckline. And the semi-fitted sleeves, straight drop and closure free front makes it easy to wear over all sorts of ensembles. The unusual rose taupe colour, instead of a beige or a grey makes for an interesting choice, while the drapery and fluid movement creates a stunning layering effect.
Wear this coat with your favourite dress to work, or atop a paired ensemble of wide-legged pants and a pussy-bow blouse. It packs in easy when you don’t need it, and is ideal for nippy days or when you require extra coverage. Finally, accentuated with rose-gold or gold minimalist jewellery, against a base modest clothing palette of either darks or lights.
