Clothing Communicated

Title: Clothing Communicated
Series: Modesty: Does God Really Care What I Wear?

Now our clothing and our appearance, women, is one of the most powerful and important means we have as women of communicating, sending a message about our hearts, our values, and what we believe. Here's the question. What do your clothes, your appearance, communicate about you?

...If I tell you that there's a woman coming down this church aisle in a long, white, formal dress, what would you say is probably the occasion? It's a wedding; she's a bride. How did you know? Because clothing communicates. If I tell you there's a teenager bundled up in a snowsuit, mittens, a wool hat, and a scarf would you agree with me that the teenager is probably not on his way to a picnic?

Clothing and appearance send a message. They can communicate our occupation or the kind of occasion we're involved in. There are some religions in the world that, if you saw a woman dressed in a certain way, you would say that woman is from this particular religion or from this particular nationality.

Clothing can communicate something about our socio-economic status. You can look at some people and think, "She looks like a wealthy woman," or you might look at another woman and say, "She doesn't look like she comes from a real wealthy background," maybe just on the basis of clothing.
