Modesty and Fashion

"It is hardly necessary to waste words over the so-called bikini since it is inconceivable that any girl with tact and decency would ever wear such a thing." ~Modern Girl Magazine, 1957


I am not one of these ladies who wear my skirts down to my ankles or extemely high necklines and long sleeves. I do wear jeans and long shorts in the summer and you won't find me in one of those new skirted swimdresses that come down to the knees. Being modest is something I take into consideration and always have. You don't have to be covered from throat to toe to be modest. I can be in fashion and still be modest.

I love both of these statements in this video... "Modesty doesn't have to be frumpy and dumpy." "You can dress modest without sacrificing fashion."
 
Be sure to listen to the part about Power and Why it has to be Itsy Bitsy.

  1. Hi, Lori!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this post! The video was spot on! I love Audrey Hepburn's style and so many people look at it as such classic, beautiful style and don't see the modesty! Would you mind if I forwarded this post and video to my principal. It would sure be helpful in discussing this topic with the girls in my class!

    Thank you so much for sharing it!

    Love,
    Heather

  2. Hello,
    What an excellent post!!!! As a Catholic Christian mom, I too see the need for modesty, but nothing frumpy and ugly either. A true modest lady wouldn’t want any extra attention drawn to her. I feel that a lot of women, who dress covered from neck to feet, are trying to draw attention to them. There is a right way and a wrong way to be modest.

    God bless,
    Diane

  3. I watched this and enjoyed it. It made me think about the verse that says "Let your moderation be known unto all men". Don't go too far one way or the other. You can make yourself look nice and be modest at the same time. It all boils down to the intent of the heart and God knows.
