Hey, ladies! Welcome to Mod Style Lounge! Here, we strive for modest fashion that’s stylish and cute. Now wait a minute…how can you be modest and cute at the same time? Keep reading to find out!
• What is “modest”? Modesty is a choice, just like the way you dress now. Like you choose to be preppy or punk, you can choose to be modest, too. Modesty is a style that can be adapted to the way you like to dress. Dressing modestly doesn’t mean giving up dressing trendy, it just means looking harder for fashionable clothes that don’t “show off your body”. This can be fun at times and a challenge at other times.
Being modest is a fashion statement in itself. When you choose to wear clothes that aren’t skin tight, shirts that don’t show midriff or scoop low at the neck revealing cleavage, and pants, shorts, and skirts that don’t show (or show off) your buttocks, it’s like breaking away from the pack and setting the standard for the people around you.
• Why dress modest? Dressing modestly shows respect to God, the people around you, and especially men. God wired guys’ minds differently than ours. They are very visual, and when you wear revealing clothing, it tempts the guy to imagine the rest and it’s hard for him to stop. So basically, he’s imagining you naked. I know, gross, right? Hearing this, it’s easy to understand why dressing immodestly could attract the wrong kind of guy. And all of us want a nice guy who cares more about us than our bodies, don’t we?
Dressing immodestly can also send signals that we are not confident in who we are, so we use our bodies to get attention. This may sound good at first, but soon, you’ll end up attracting attention from some jerk and run the risk of being dragged into something you don’t want to do. The guy you deserve is attracted to a girl who is confident and doesn’t need to show off her body. Your body is a God-given, beautiful thing, but isn’t it so much more exciting and rewarding to save it for one man only?
• What else do you blog about at Mod Style Lounge? We blog about all things fashion and beauty. We may talk about the latest trends, or about makeup, hairstyles, favorite products or favorite places to shop. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT) says, “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” In other words, God wants us to take care of ourselves, be the beautiful women who he meant us to be, because, since we belong to him, our bodies are borrowed in a sense. He made us, and wants us to take care of his creation.
Love in Christ,
