When modesty speak volumes

December 3, 2015

In the era of Kardashianism, the modest look has proved to be surprisingly resilient. A simple blouse tucked into a skirt or pants and covered with a trench coat remains a trustful companion that never lets down.

This quintessentially British wear has stood the test of time. From robust tweeds and hardy sweaters, to silk blouses and flat shoes, all designed to be comfortable and to serve a lifetime. This style had never bowed to frivolous fashion inventions and despite slight alterations of hemline and waistline, it has not change much since war times. Despite its functionality and lack of exuberance, it proves to be more attractive one might expect. All the covering up and hiding aside, there are always subtle ways of showing the owners’need for prettification. Sometimes it is hidden in the form of accessories, like flashy gloves or scarves, other times it can simply be the string of pearls added to elevate the look.

Despite the notorious stiffness of aristocrats and royals, who adopted the style as an outdoor gear, this disciplined and reserved look speaks volumes again in times of irrational exuberance.
