While life isn't about following the crowd, it's hard to not feel alone when you're taking a different path.
Wearing modest clothing is one version of that in my life. Watching everyone around me--in person and online--participating in cute and exciting trends has often made me feel left out and even frusterated. I want to wear cute things, too! I just want a little more coverage...
Following powerful, stylish women who rock modest and high coverage looks is a great way to get inspiration and feel a little less alone. Luckily, Utah is full of modest fashion bloggers that fit this bill.
Check out these gorgeous women leading the charge for modest fashion inspo!
1. Emily Smith – Modest Goddess
Emily Smith truly is a Goddess when it comes to modest fashion. Emily recognized that social media can be a disheartening place for young people, especially for those who have specific standards for modesty and clothing. Her goal is to increase how often young people are able to see examples of modest outfits online. It’s so powerful to see others follow your values, and Emily’s content helps people to feel like they’re not alone!
Emily’s blog consists of modest outfit ideas, modesty hacks, store recommendations for buying modest clothing, as well as articles about her lifestyle. Check out her page here.
2. Kayli – @thenobbygal
Kayli is an Instagram follow MUST if you like modest fashion. She’s a stay-at-home mom who blogs her experiences and gives fashion advice along the way! Her taste is so elegant and chic, and her posts with her cute family are so fun to follow. She also gives cleaning motivation (which we could probably all use) and the occasional hair care tip.

If you’d like a beautifully written explanation of how our clothing affects how we are seen, head over to Keara-Lei's blog, Modest Style. My favorite thing about her blog is her take on the affect clothing has on people, and why what we wear is important. She also has some great articles on outfit ideas, hair and makeup, and general tips on life. While her page hasn’t been active recently, it’s worth reading her past articles!
