Modest Prom Dresses

Modest Prom DreessesLess is more.” This statement sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? But in the context of class, grace, and modesty, this translates to: showing less skin is indeed more elegant.

In current times, it seems as though modesty is in short supply. Celebrities such as Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears, and Miley Cyrus have glamorized a style which exposes as much their bodies as possible, without being completely nude. These celebrities are in the public eye, so many young ladies may strive to imitate them. While there may be times you choose to dress in a style which is boldly lacking in coverage, a modest dress is always better suited, and adequate to those special occasions such as your Quinceanera, Sweet 16 celebrations, Homecoming, or Prom.

The dress you wear makes a statement about you. What do you want to say about yourself? Are you a party girl? Or, are you someone who is intelligent, modest, and respectful of both yourself and those around you.

Choosing a modest prom dress will emphasize you as a person, focusing on you as a mature, young woman. A less modest dress, while glamorous, may give the wrong message about you. Additionally, attending a formal event such as a prom, Quinceanera celebration, or homecoming may seem like a marathon, lasting for several hours; you’ll want to act accordingly for the occasion, and allow yourself a level of comfort during the formalities. A modest dress, which affords you more coverage, will easily accomplish these goals.

Your prom will provide you with a lifelong memory. A modest prom dress will emphasize a sense of classic beauty, while not forcing you to compromise your dignity for the sake of following a celebrity’s fad. Modest prom dresses easily provide a sense of style and sophistication.

The designer, Alyne, who is emphasizing modest styling for homecoming dresses, quinceanera dresses, sweet 16 dresses, and wedding dresses this year, applies the terms: fresh, beautiful, and timeless to his collection — all designed with a sense of youthful modesty. Another fashion guru, Alfred Angelo, whose latest collection of formal gowns, which are also designed with a theme of simple modesty, calls them: luxurious, radiant, and unforgettable.

In recent years, most retailers have stocked prom gowns which are strapless or backless, with a plunging neckline, even with an above-the-knee hemline. In contrast, many designers are returning to a more modest style, reflecting the timeless elegance of Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly.

The more coverage there is, the more flattering the dress will be. Modest prom dresses are currently trending, complete with princess line styling, which highlights the bodice portion of the dress, using linear seaming from the neckline to the hem line; this coverage results in a slimming effect. Add in above the elbow gloves, and the elegant, timeless look for your modest prom dress is complete.
