Laura Carmichael Models a Mid-Calf Dress and We Match Last Week’s Modest Favorite!

Hey ladies, modesty often gets such a bad rap, right? Often, when Christians are called to dress modestly, their first instinct is to imagine themselves wearing a burlap bag. I pray that these Modest Is Hottest posts are proof that you can dress modestly while looking pretty!
This week, I thought it would be fun to feature mid-calf skirts and dresses. While modest in length, this style can look awkward…but check out the following examples for feminine, chic mid-calf looks done well!
And don’t forget to check out last week’s winner of our modesty matchup!
I love this strapless forest green dress. Although simple in design, the overall look is enhanced by the embellishments in the fabric. I also love how the bodice is shaped as a curve to cover cleavage.
Such a cute outfit combo! The mid-calf pencil skirt is a beautiful emerald color with a muted filigree pattern. And how fun is that t-shirt? This is such a chic look!
The length of this dress comes a little higher than that of a traditional mid-calf dress…perfect for those with shorter legs. The dress hits right below the knee and the belt sits a little higher on the waist, creating the illusion of a longer skirt. And I love the fun addition of the train.
Now for our modest matchup!
Last week, Carrie Underwood’s tulle overlay dress won our Modest Is Hottest poll, so I went in search of a similar dress that could help you get her look!
How about this pretty dress? It shares the same overlay feature, as well as the sleeveless and fit-and-flare design, of Underwood’s gown. This dress can be worn as a fun summer party dress, and also would be perfect for graduation! What do you think?
