“Modest can be stylish too,” writes Hannah Saleem, the owner and creator of everModest.com, an online shopping and browsing experience that is aimed at women who want to dress modestly.
UK based, everModest is a combination of Polyvore and a shopping site, in the words of the Saleem. Users can browse thousands of articles of clothing on the ‘Styler’ section of the site, and then create modest outfits, which can then be posted for other users to look at.
Users can also browse a collection of curated modest apparel in a wide variety of categories. The collection includes big brands like Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfrige, New Look, Topshop, and others, including Muslim designers. What’s great about this section of the site is that it’s a great place to browse multiple brands under one category, kind of like a modest online department store. There’s no need to visit each brand’s website and sift and sort through the clothes to find modest ones. Just go to everModest and it’s already been sorted for you.
After clicking on the product you’re interested in, you’re taken directly to the vendor’s site to complete your purchase or you can browse some more.
The site also boasts a collection of coupons which can be found under the ‘offers’ tab, from some of the big brands that partner with the site.
The lookbook, another popular feature of the site, is where users can browse the outfits created by other users. It’s a great way to get ideas and inspiration. Clicking on any of the items in the pictures will take you directly to the vendor’s site, where you can buy the product right away, which takes the guesswork out of the pictures. Users can also easily share the outfits via their Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
There is also a section called ‘Show Me’, which appears to be pictures of actual users in modestly styled outfits, but it’s unclear how these photos made their way to this section.
Users can also upload little blogs or status updates with pictures and text, which works to create a community for the frequent visitors of the site.
A fun place to “discover, style and inspire,” everModest is an innovative site that provides inspiration for women and girls who seek to dress modestly, yet stylishly.
