"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight."
1 Peter 3:3-4 (New International Version)
Modest is something that is really growing on me! I have to say, I am not perfect, nor I try to be. But I am one of those people that believe that you can dress cute, hip, sophisticated and fashionable and still be modest.
Being modest is having or showing a moderate or humble estimate of one's importance, free from vanity, egotism, boastfulness or great pretensions. Someone who is modest is free from ostentation or showy extravagance and shows decencies in behavior, speech and dress. Today's women tend to dress accordingly to what they see in celebrities. They copy what they see out there in the world and act as if they where meat for men. (not all of them). They dress that way mabe because they want to get attention from others. And I don't say this because I am the most modest person out there. But atleast I try my best.
I believe that being modest is respecting yourself as a woman, as a daughter, student... and I can go on and on on this. For a person to be modest you have to be aware of what and who you are in Jesus Christ.
I am a work in progress! And just as I am, I know you can be too.
Here are some inspirations you can use:
Both of these dresses
Modest In dressing means if wearing dresses dont let them be too short. If you choose to use a short dress then it must have sleeves. Always balance it out
Dressing modestly doesn't mean just wearing dresses. You can choose shorts that are not short-shorts and math them with bigger shirts (if they are tight to your body) or vice-verse. You can wear jeans, if they are skinny and really tight to your body, again use it with a loose shirt. Again the thing here is balancing it out and not showing anything you shouldn't show.
