Modest Fashion Brands Everybody Can Wear

These Asian brands aren't just for hijab baes.

While Instagram girls will have you believe that less is more, everywhere else there’s a rise in modern modest fashion brands, and it’s no longer just religiously-motivated. The foundation is pretty strong: Net-A-Porter has a modest category, Uniqlo has repeated collections with British-Japanese Muslim fashion designer, Hana Tajima and there’s even a luxury specialist modest fashion e-commerce store called The Modist, stocking a roll call of some of the biggest names in fashion, including Ann Demeulemeester, Missoni and Erdem. If you’re looking for modest fashion brands closer to home, here are some of our favourites to check out.
