About the Style of Fashion

What can you expect to find in Modern Soul Boutique?

Its all about broad splashes of style and sass. Modern Soul carries tops and bottoms, dresses, jumpsuits and rompers, and intimates. The style is, overall, boldly colorful. Many of the tops are single-color, with blacks, grays, light stripes, and whites dominating the floor. But the boutique loves to add a sense of color and fun. Here’s a virtual stroll around the hangers… 

Look great wherever you find yourself on vacation, from going out to dinner or hanging poolside.

Modern Soul trades floral for bold singular color palettes. The Dylan Tencel Shorts are simply light green- no frills, no fuss. Cute, simple, and elegant at its best.

But this is not to say that there are some dazzling mixes of color and funky Florida fun, especially in bottoms like the Keep Palm Shorts or the pastel-pink Sunflower Pants. The Line and Dine Shorts are a favorite, with that tender mix of purple and white which feel and look so utterly comfortable.

There’s also a number of skirts and more ambitious evening wear for when you are traversing the best of Sarasota’s downtown. This includes the green and black Gaby Midi Skirt, with its furls and drop just below the knees. The Ribbed Knit Midi Skirt is a dark red forming skirt perfect with some black boots. The Lola Skirt adds an extra level of playfulness with its waving black down to the ankle and its amusing Florida slit, ideal as a bottom cover.

Fashion that perfectly reflects Lido Key’s relaxed elegance.

Finally, we want to make special note of the many brightly-colored and eye-catching dresses. We can’t get enough of the visceral Sienna Striped Dress. It’s playful and approachable, with a thin white stripe in a bright coral pink. We also love the Poppy Mini Dress if you want something instantly captivating. Its bold red-pink will grab you and never let you go.

There are patterned dresses in the most-obviously floral design of the No Woman No Cry dress as well as cute and light designs in the Camel Knit dress.
