Author Mary Sheehan Warren in her book It's So You! Fitting Fashion to Your Life writes:
[Modesty] is a positive paradigm for fashion choices; not a strain of fashion removed from the mainstream. It blends. It's real and works for real women and promotes our material well-being as well as (and even more importantly) our dignity. It can be fashion-forward and will work in anyone's personal style --- even the trendiest.
