Dressing modest while staying fabulous!

Here at Her Wardrobe we often hear "I still want to look like a bombshell and feel amazing, but being a family event it has to be some-what conservative". As street style trends continue to boast shorter hem lines and lower necklines it can be hard to go against what you're used to feeling sexy in and dressing in what may be deemed appropriate for a family event. Whether restricted by dress code, location or even just feeling like a modest change in your style she has you covered with some great stylish options! 

Dressing in luxe satin look fabrics will always make you feel beautiful and sexy even with a higher neck line. These satin look fabrics elevate a look and give an expensive chic style without needing to show off your body. Allowing the quality of the dress to do the talking for itself is key to nailing these looks. Because of the sheen in the fabrics they dazzle in the light beautifully and sparkle with any gold or silver jewellery to elevate them even more. This look shows how amazing fabrics can drape perfectly on your body and create a lot of stunning movement in full hem lines.
