When you are going somewhere, you take care of your dressing and you are curious about how do you look like. You also wanted to look perfect and wanted to follow the dress code if there is any. It is important to follow the dress code so that you won’t look different. Though it is good to look unique and prominent, but not in a way that everyone wears black and only you are there who wears the white dress.
So, when you take care of these things at any other location then why not taking care of your dress code and your overall looks, while going to the church? It is equally important to follow any rules or the dress code of a particular church while you visit that for worship.
The standards and rules keep changing with the time, but it also depends on the geographical area and your society as well. For example, if you are living in sub-continent, the dressing tradition is totally different for the women, while if you are living in Europe, then women church dressing would be totally different.
Here are few things that you should take care while getting ready for the church:
Select a Modest Outfit
Most of the churches are conservative, but people go there might not. Even then, you must go for an outfit which looks modes and good at you. So, you should select an outfit which is modest. Modest doesn’t mean that it is out of fashion. A modest dress can also be a fashionable dress. You can still find a fashionable dress for the church which looks modest as well.
Avoid any backless or low cut dress or a blouse/shirt which shows your midriff should also be avoided. Avoid overuse of expensive accessories and jewelry as well.
Avoid Transparent or Body Revealing Dresses
You should avoid any dress that is transparent and shows your inner wear. Or, you should avoid any dress that reveals your body so much. For example, anything that is above the knees should be avoided in the church. Women should not wear such a dress.
Wear a Hat
Some churches have a tradition where women wear hats. The tradition of wearing women’s church hats belong to a specific sect. So, if you are going to a church which belongs to that sect, then it is good to wear a hat. Though it is not compulsory, but just to look like others and to respect their sentiments, it is good to wear a hat for the women.
