Cute Modest Summer Tops Under $50

I think the term “modest” means something different to everyone. The definition has changed a lot over time, and depending on how you were raised, it probably means something different to you than it does to me. When I think about “dressing modestly”, I ask myself would I wear this in front of my conservative grandfather? Or if it’s something for work, would I feel comfortable in this at church? If the answer is no, I’d probably be uncomfortable in it anyway. We grew up with the saying “Raise your hands and touch your toes. If anything shows, change your clothes!”

I prefer to dress more modest just because it makes me feel more comfortable. I feel better when I’m more covered, and it’s something my mom taught us growing up so it’s typically there in the back of my mind when I’m looking at clothes. To me, modesty is a higher neckline, a looser full-length fit and more coverage in the back than not. I think of this as more of a “modern modest”. The great thing about fashion is everyone can have their own mix of style and there’s nothing wrong with any of it!

I am always seeing things when I’m shopping for summer clothes that I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing, despite how trendy and cute they are. And I’m sure there are others out there like me that prefer to be more covered than not. So I’ve rounded up a few picks for you guys that have higher necklines and small details that are cute but not too revealing, all under $50! You can still be cute and trendy while being modest.

You can also make things more modest yourself pretty easily. Wear a cami or a bandeau top underneath something that’s too low cut in the front or under the arms.

What is your favorite Summer style??

  • Happy Sunday! Currently enjoying my coffee in bed with our crazy fur babies doing laps inside the house. Looking forward to a productive day and getting ready for the week! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend ❤️ http://liketk.it/2EWCe #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • The no white after Labor Day rule was obviously meant to be broken. I wear white jeans year round because they transition so well into every season! Plus, they make me feel fancier 💁🏻‍♀️ than normal jeans. .
We’re going back to the farmers market today and have a birthday party later which is a busy day for us introverts 😂.We’re also planning our next project for our bedroom because I can’t ever make up my mind 🙃 thank God Jake puts up with my indecisiveness. What are your plans today?? Outfit & sizing info 👉🏻http://liketk.it/2EV50 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • Seeing all these fall throwback pics on my feed gets me so excited!! Jake and I have this tradition that we go to this amazing place every year and get their Apple cider donuts and fresh made apple cider 🍎. I love it warmed up 🤤. We actually go back more than once because we can’t resist, but the first trip is always the best. This pic is from our trip last year and I can’t wait to go this year! We actually have a porch now so I’m psyched to decorate it!! 🎃 What are your fall traditions? http://liketk.it/2ETa4 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • If you watched my stories the other day, you’ll know I’m currently on a pajama set kick. Idk what it is about wearing matching PJs that makes me feel so put together 😂 but it’s definitely a thing. Don’t get me wrong, I still have some old t-shirts I wear with mix matched shorts, but I feel way better when I’m coordinated. Even just around the house. Anyone else?! These Avocado ones are old but I found a whole bunch of new ones! Linked here: http://liketk.it/2ERES #liketkit @liketoknow.it or through the link in my bio. #pajamasets #danithomblog
  • When I put this outfit on, Jake looked at me and said “You’re going to wear those shoes with that shirt?? Aren’t you not supposed to mix patterns?” My initial reaction was to explain that stripes and leopard go together and it’s a thing. Later I realized this comment means he actually pays attention to what I say about fashion! Kind of 😂. I feel like I’m slowly inceptioning him about clothes 😎 Has your guy ever made a comment like this?! How do you feel about mixing patterns? This is as brave as I get lol! http://liketk.it/2EPMP #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • I live a life covered in dog hair but you make it worth it 😘🐶🐾 You’d think I only have one dog because Finn is always attached to my hip, but Oliver is attached to Jake’s. Double the fur, double the love ❤️ http://liketk.it/2EO8Y #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
