The start of 2016 has seen a recognition and a rise in modest fashion. The launch of the 1st International Modest Fashion Week in Istanbul happened in May, and it seems designers by the likes of Dolce and Gabbana and Uniqlo have jumped on the bandwagon finally recognizing that Muslim women want to be on trend, have the hard earned cash to spend but no where to spend, H & M even featured the first Hijabi model in their ad campaign.
But we at Butterflytwists HQ always knew this J. Never neglectful of our international customers, our Muslim ladies and those who just like to dress more on the modest side. We have always recognised that comfort doesn’t mean a compromise in style, an ability to express your personality through your clothing doesn’t have to mean baring all, after all fashion forward statement shoes is what we do best without ever compromising on comfort.
So this is our homage to you lovely ladies, a celebration of your style, some favourites from our footwear collection and how to style them for 3 different looks.
Being modest doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on glamour on an evening out. If anything you should up the stakes and the best way is to really embrace embellishment. This beautiful abaya from The Aab Collection in understated nude really allows the gold embellished detail to stand out, a perfect match for our Jasmine premium loafer. Made from Luxuriously soft taupe pony hair and jewel embellishment to complement your bejeweled abaya.
Lunch with the Girls
Let’s face it, if your anything like us at Butterflytwist HQ you work your pumps off during your working week, and Fridays have turned into Fri-Yays, the weekend is finally here and you can’t wait to have a catch up and gossip with your girlfriends. You want to feel relaxed yet styled. Opt for a casual laid back look with slouchy cargo pants and oversized sweater or blouse.
Let your accessories do the talking by adding the much needed definition for your overall look. Opting for a structured bag and a pair of “look at me” statement Jades from our sneaker range not only oozes comfort but is a shoe that is hard to ignore. The colour range is so lush we would probably bag them all.
Luxe up Your Life
Gone are the days when sportswear was just for the gym, Sports Luxe is all about luxury, clean lines, layering and experimenting with texture. A style in its own right, you don’t have to go anywhere near a treadmill to rock it. We have recreated the look with this sweater maxi dress from ASOS, silk pale pink bomber from COS, grey patterned scarf from All Saints and of course to bring the look together, the ultimate supreme sneaker, our Madison high top in pewter scale.
Alternatively, to glam your sports look up a bit more then opt for our new Mia, the most glamourous sneaker in town in uber glam slate snake Mia has memory foam cushioned soles and is also available in glamourous Gold.
Remember modesty and comfort doesn’t have to mean a compromise on style.
