If you're looking to buck the "skin is in" trend, and want to go for a more subdued look, you're in luck. We've got a few tips on how to dress classy AND modern. Because guess what? Covering up doesn't mean you have to look like like you're headed to church.

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide just how much skin you should reveal while trying to adhere to what's hot in fashion. We get it. In a time where crop tops rule supreme, how does the average gal manage to be demure, but still current?

It all boils down to what makes YOU feel comfortable and confident. When you're not sold on your own look, it becomes obvious that it isn't entirely you. That completely defeats the purpose of having personal style; which is a major no-no. Steer clear of bartering your sense of self for an of-the-moment fad.

With that being said, there are many ways you can incorporate today's trends while still skewing modest. One major tip: if you're showing a ton of leg, resist flaunting your cleavage and vice versa.

Need more help? Good, 'cause we're just getting started!

Here's how to dress classy, modern, AND youthful all at once!

Your Classy Gal Shopping List:

- Pencil Skirts
- Trousers
- Turtlenecks
- Heels
- Blazers
- Luxe Coats
- Midi Dresses

Pencils Always Come In Handy

The great thing about pencil skirts is that they're both classy and utterly sexy. While their length allows them to cover most of your legs, the figure-hugging silhouette will help highlight your curves. BINGO!

Glorious Trousers

There's something undeniably cool about a woman wearing a killer set of trousers. Team the loose fitting pants with a delicate blouse and simple jewelry. After that, you're golden!

Turtlenecks Abound

Now that the temperatures are below freezing, what girl can resist a cozy turtleneck? We mean, they're comfy, uber stylish, and warm. We want as many as our closets can handle!

Blaze On Through

Blazers are one of our top fashion secrets. They can take your outfit from 0 to 100 real quick - no joke!

We can literally go on and on about how great blazers are like 1. they make jeans and a t-shirt look ridiculously chic and 2. they're great for girls with a larger chest, but we want you to treat yourselves and be exposed to their glory!

Get High!

Flats are great (and easy on the feet), but a pair of heels immediately up your style cred. They're for the women who want to polish off her ensemble just right. Grab yourself a few!

Midi Dress Madness

A well selected midi dress is literally your one stop shop to dressing classy. The generous hemline puts skin on the back burner while still allowing your figure to get some shine.

Remember: there's nothing wrong with leaving a lil something something to the imagination.

Luxe Reloaded

Now that we're headed for winter it's all about a luxe coat. Whether you're the chick that loves a splash of colour or the one who swears by all black, make sure you're covering up in the most stylish way possible.

Offset the dressiness of the coat with a pair of boyfriend jeans and some sunnies. It's really as easy as that.
