Fashion week is over, we know. But, we’d like to go back in time and review some of the best modest street style looks from London Fashion Week. Because yes, modesty in dress is everywhere and fashion enthusiasts prove it every season. They turn staple outfits into unexpected masterpieces. One of the main function of a piece of cloth is to cover the body. So the more covered you are the more stylish you’ll look. Covering gives you infinite creative opportunities to play with fabrics, layers, colours… Have a look at our selection and tell us what you think.

Modest Street Style Looks From LFW SS20
The co-ord suit is a pretty classy and always efficient look every modest woman should have in her wardrobe. To make a plain ensemble outfit look bomb, play with accessories. As for this look, the way she tied her tiny Jacquemus bag around her wrist on top of her jacket is sensational. You can create the same effect with watches or bracelets instead.
If you don’t know how to wear these red pants or tartan trench you recently bought without looking ridiculous, here you have a great solution. The key to keep it casual is to wear a plain black shirt – also works with a white one. And wear a gold pendant to elevate the elegance of your look.
This look could have been boring. But it is not. And you know why? Thanks to the chains accessory on the dark grey pullover. You can style your big comfy winter sweater with long necklaces. Paired with white sneakers, this will be your new favourite winter style. Almost forgot, this look would also perfectly work with a pleated skirt.
This is the kind of nude we enjoy receiving and looking at. Don’t you? To have the perfect nude look, play with different shades of nude and different fabrics. Suede, silk, leather… Don’t be afraid to be creative. This is what fashion is about.
This look is very interesting. Indeed, it can be sometimes very tricky and/or difficult to associate multiple pieces of clothing with different prints. One of the successful ways to do it is to spot a similarity or common point between your pieces. Here, we can see that the colour red connects the dots between the dress and the trench – and even the socks. Although it is more prominent in the dress, the fact that we can find hints of red on the trench makes this look very harmonized.
Another great multi prints combo. What is also worth noting in this look is that she wore a coat on top of her summer dress. Women, do not store your summer dresses in the cellar. You can eventually wear them again this fall, styled differently with a white or black collar neck underneath and jacket on top.
This major look associates two major trends of this season. The silk skirt that we already saw in some New York Spring Summer 2020 fashion shows, and the jacket/blazer styled with a belt. Effortless elegance as we like it!
If you’re looking for streetwear vibes, this look is an ultimate reference. If you want to invest in shoes that will last, go for doc martens. This is a classy choice that will never go out of style, you feel very comfortable in these boots. And they are worth the price. The quality is there. Keep your blazer jacket on, trade your skirt for comfortable pants and here you have your stylish streetwear yet very elegant look.
Black is such a happy colour. Right? We personally love black. It goes with anything and is suitable for any occasion. This look explores the all-black outfit in a very daring manner. Play with bright and unexpected colour accessories. The flashy green purse and blue sandals clearly make the outfit stand out. Would you dare to add bright colourful touches to your all-black outfit?
A very efficient way to wear prints: the printed co-ord. It differs from the classy all-black businesswoman suit. But it still looks very professional. If you want some changes in your work environment, you can start by trading your usual plain suit for a print one. What do you think?
To continue with prints here is another great look that could help you win over your eventual fear of wearing prints. Especially if you like it on others but never tried on yourself. Wear a print dress with a long black coat. In this way, you can progressively get used to it and enjoy how beautiful it looks on yourself at your own pace.
This look speaks nothing but elegance, avant-garde and refinement. Have you ever thought about pairing your scarf with your socks? If not, now you see how stylish it could look. And the red purse adding bold vibes to this outfit is exactly the kind of fashion initiative you should go for.
We spoke about our love for black outfits and how silk skirts are trendy this season – side note: follow the trend only if you like it. So we just cannot not adore this look. You will notice the bright orange clutch and the printed pumps that contrasts very well with the outfit.
Another handy way to rock prints. Wear your favourite pair of jeans with your classiest pumps et voilà!
The true representation of sophisticated and effortless elegance. We’re in awe with the sharp refined lines of the look. Very modern and architectural. To wear with a white turtle neck if you want more coverage.
Another classy co-ord set as we like it. And this colour is perfect for this fall.
How to look incredibly bomb and covered? She has the answer. Wear leather. Keep it all black. But choose white for the boots and the scarf.
We talked about prints anywhere but on skirts so here we are. To keep the appearance classy, same rule applied: Pair it with a plain blacktop. See how she put a side of her jacket inside her skirt? This is so ingenious. Take notes.
