We’re right in the middle of summer’s heat, and for many people, that means stay cool by donning the shortest shorts, the tinest tops and the briefest of swimsuits. But what if you’d prefer showing a little less skin, but still looking cool and fashionable?
Despite the racks of short-shorts crowding the racks at the mall, it’s still possible to find stylsh, hot weather clothes for men, women and kids.
Check out my top picks for modest summer fashion ideas, and see what you think.

Modest shorts for fashionable men
Modesty isn’t just for women, of course. Lots of men prefer to stay more covered than the popular fashion suggests. That’s why stores like Captain’s Landing offer mens shorts with longer inseams for summer comfort in a more modest cut.
They also have t-shirts, polos and summery Hawaiian shirts that keep you cool and still cover what a modest man wants to conceal.
Raising modest kids
I’ve seen them. And you probably have, too. Kids clothes with suggestive messages or pictures on them. Little girls clothes made from sheer or even see-through fabric. What are clothing manufacturers and stores thinking?
Thank good there are stores that understand. A good department store carries summer play clothes that are made for kids, toddlers and babies. Sturdy, kid-themed images. Modest designs. And fabrics moms and dads are happy to let their kids wear. Bring on the heat, summer. Your kids are ready!
Swimwear made for swimming, not showing off
When summer’s heat hits with full force, the last thing you want to do is stay out of the water. But finding a modest swimsuit can be a challenge. Thankfully, swimsuit catalogs have you covered. Their selection of conservative women’s bathing suits will let you head for the pool or beach without letting it all hang out.
They also have men’s board shorts and longer trunks to keep the guys covered and comfortable in the water and out.
Summer scarves and shawls for beautiful modesty
As evening starts to fall, a lightweight shawl can be a girl’s best friend, even in summer. But even on a sunny summer day, you can make your summer look more modest by adding a light-weight shawl to a sundress or sleeveless top. These classic accessories add a lovely pop of color, as well as shielding shoulders from the summer sun – and unwanted eyes (a big plus for vacation travelers in the Middle East.)
