Modest Is Hottest! Julianne Hough Shimmers in Shorts and We Give One Star a Makeover!
Written by T.M. Gaouette | June 10, 2013
Girlies, the “fingertip rule” is usually the standard minimum length set by schools and businesses for skirts and dresses. But the fingertip rule doesn’t account for short arms and long legs…seriously! Additionally, this rule is a standard determined by society and, as we know, society doesn’t consider Christian modesty.
So what is a modest length for skirts and dresses? Usually, standard modest lengths are two inches above the knee and longer. Why? Because anything shorter shows too much of the thigh when standing and rides up even more when sitting! This can cause major “wardrobe malfunctions” and peek-a-boo moments, if you know what I mean. Have you set a personal rule for skirt and dress lengths, girls?
Now let’s get to this week’s selection!
What a unique way of dressing up a pair of Capri pants for a dressy occasion! I love the strapless bodice and and pant mix. Both are modestly fitted but not tight.
I’m a huge fan of girly, floral dresses. This one is a gorgeous shape, great length and the embroidery adds lovely texture.
Here’s another cute outfit. The shimmery waistcoat top and shorts are a great combo! When it comes to shorts, the length can be a little shorter than a skirt or dress. Why? Because with shorts, you aren’t as likely to have a “wardrobe malfunction” because they’re closed. Halfway down the thigh and longer is a modest length…anything shorter and you’re in hot pants!
I like the monochromatic look of this outfit, as well as the various materials. I also like the style of the jacket and the flared skirt. However, the length of the skirt is too short. A few more inches and this outfit would have been perfectly modest!
Which of our three modest looks is your favorite?
