The Kardashians Should Take a Cue From These Modestly Dressed Stars
In a world where the Kardashians seem to strip off their clothes any chance they get, we thought we'd switch gears for a moment and talk about the ladies who actually like covering up. The ones who dress modestly on the red carpet, in outfit-inspiring blog posts, and in their everyday lives, proving that it doesn't take a crop top to make you sexy — sometimes, all you need is a crewneck dress and an unmatched amount of confidence to turn heads.
So if you're not willing to bare it all in a low-cut, thigh-slitted something, gather some inspiration from the following stars and fashion influencers who prove that modest really is hottest. Sorry, Kim.
Angelina may have had a wild youth, but the mother of six has definitely toned down her style in recent years. Aside from the occasional peek-a-boo leg, she keeps things pretty tame on the red carpet, rocking gowns rather than LBDs.
Power woman Amal would never fall victim to a wardrobe malfunction. One of our favorite outfits ever worn by Mrs. Clooney? This structured jumpsuit, which she expertly paired with a sun hat.
Melanie Elturk, CEO of Haute Hijab, is like most other bloggers, posting photos of fashion-forward outfits, but doesn't abandon her religious views, pairing every look with a pretty (sometimes printed) hijab.
The biggest wardrobe-related controversy this star has seen in recent history is showing her belly button. It's pretty safe to say Taylor always keeps it classic and never wears anything too racy.
Sure she's worn some looks that the Queen wouldn't approve of, but once she became royalty, Kate's style matured. She's the epitome of a princess if we've ever seen one.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The twin designer duo is now famous for their baggy, layered style. We haven't seen them show tons of skin in years, but their conservative choices haven't stopped them from becoming style icons.
From structured pants to full skirts, Emma Stone's style makes us think she was born in the wrong decade — and that's a good thing. We don't know if we've ever seen this star in something too out there, and she's definitely someone we look to for outfit inspiration.
Shailene's admitted to tanning her lady bits in the privacy of her own home, but in public, the actress is all about the long hemlines and more casual looks.
This darling Red Valentino dress is just one example of Kate's signature, ladylike style, which includes long gowns, shift dresses, and high necklines.
Days of Chandler
Chandler is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoys rocking feminine — not provocative — looks on her blog.
While some stars may prefer body-hugging dresses to highlight their curves, Maggie loves a good loose-fitting style, leaving a bit more to the imagination.
We'd be shocked if the face of Dior showed up anywhere in a sexy, cutout dress. Even her downtime, Marion looks appropriate, going as far as to rock a feminine leopard cape at the airport.
The actress has somehow found the sweet spot when it comes to showing skin. She shows just enough to keep things spicy but overall remains covered up and classy.
Olivia is known for her clothes and killer style — not for flaunting her body — which is part of her appeal. Even in the Summer, she balances out short shorts with a full-coverage top.
Gone are the microminis of her Spice Girl days and in their place? Tailored pants and structured blazers. This designer definitely knows how to work the professional look.
Alexa has a thing for denim, as evidenced by her AG collaboration, but even when she trades in her jeans for something a bit fancier, it's never showy. We love this all-white look she wore to the British Fashion Awards Nominees' Dinner back in November.
During her stint on Dancing With the Stars, the teen refused to wear anything too provocative. Sadie also has a line of more modest prom dresses with Sherri Hill, for girls who want an alternative to the revealing dress.
If you've ever read Leandra's book, Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls., you'll know she grew up in a religious household and even attended a private Modern Orthodox Jewish prep school in Manhattan. Her style choices are based on what she finds comfortable, which is typically something covered up and not conventionally considered "sexy."
Retro-loving Zooey is all about demure, vintage looks. Just a
We love her red carpet looks, but we're also fan of Reese's all-American style. If she's not buttoned up in a collared shirt, she's seen rocking jeans, long-sleeved shirts, and a pair of boots.
