Dressing modestly is easy through Autumn and Winter. But what about when summer hits and you live in Florida? Besides layering spaghetti strap dresses which I am not a fan of it is hard to find modern modest dresses. So I have round up 11 Mormon Fashion Bloggers you should follow so that you can dump the old nanna sacks and stay stylish all through summer.

I was surprised when I came across Cotton and Curls because I didn’t think I could find any other blogger I loved more than Merrick. Liz’s latest velvet jumpsuit and the ruffled white tee have got me searching the thrift stores for some pieces to upcycle.
Cotton and Curls
Liz Bryson is a refashioning seamstress. Her blog contains refashions with written and video instructions! Woo! ❤️ Her fashion style is modest yet chic and modern, which isn’t easy to do!
If you are looking for some upcycling inspiration then Liz’s blog Cotton and Curls is for you.

Merrick shares style and shopping advice, and beginner and intermediate sewing tutorials on her blog.

How To Adjust Your Outfits For Garments
How Do Mormons Dress?
Endowed members ensure that their shoulders are covered, the upper thigh is covered to the knee and a modest neckline.
What Do You Wear To A Mormon Church?
When attending a church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints you want to wear your Sunday best. Men wear suits and ties. The women wear dresses or skirts and blouses. The female attire is not casual, yet not formal attire. It lays somewhere in between.
Can Latter-Day Saints Wear Bikinis?
Yes! Latter-day Saints do not wear garments when swimming or exercising. Many members do prefer to wear one-pieces for modesty reasons. I personally love bikinis. No one wears one-pieces in Australia unless you are over 70. It all comes down to the individual’s disconcertment.
Why Do Mormons Wear Garments?
“The garment provides the member “a constant reminder” of the covenants that were made in the temple. Wearing the garment is also “an outward expression of an inward commitment” to follow Jesus Christ.
Once people are endowed, they have the blessing of wearing the temple garment throughout their lives. They are obligated to wear it according to the instructions given in the endowment. Those who have been endowed in the temple must remember that the blessings that are related to this sacred privilege depend on their worthiness and their faithfulness in keeping temple covenants.
The garment provides a constant reminder of the covenants made in the temple. The garment should be treated with respect at all times. It should not be exposed to the view of those who do not understand its significance, and it should not be adjusted to accommodate different styles of clothing. When worn properly, the garment provides protection against temptation and evil. Wearing the garment is an outward expression of an inward commitment to follow the Savior.” LDS Church.
