New Order - modesty apparel: Oh Hannah Montana, what to do?
Understated girls' clothing is making a comeback as many people believe fashions for young people have gotten too provocative. It has been reported that the downturn in the economy has resulted in young women's clothing becoming more modest. Apparently when things were going well retailers chose to ignore their critics who were asking for styles that showed more fabric than skin. Well now the shoe is truly on the other foot and retailers are keen to provide clothing that sells. Now that bling is passé designers are embracing the ‘new modesty’ challenge by providing more sensible clothes. Hip hugging gear is being replaced by baggies as people want to be more comfortable and more covered. Modest fashion calls for covered shoulders, thighs and cleavage, and comfortable shoes.
