How to Dress Properly on Church

Times are changing every day, and religion is not different from other subjects. Nowadays, most of that feeling of sacred related to church was lost. That is a negative side, as Christianity is one of the cornerstones of western civilization, and also to preserve that sense of holy is to preserve our most beloved traditions. Today most of people don’t go to church, and most of the ones that go don’t even know what they are doing there. Dressing properly is necessary while attending church, as a sign of respect both for God and for our community. This article talk about some tips very useful when it comes to dress to right way to attend church.

Church

Don’t dress to impress:

As the popular adage says, don’t dress to impress for the Sunday mass. It gives us our first important lesson here: moderation. The church meeting means a moment for concentration and reflection, when you forget about the week problems and just connect with God and his spiritual energy. Using flamboyant or very colorful clothes don’t get along well with the environment, and can take out the concentration of others too. Also, the bible exalts moderation on speaking and dressing as a good quality, and there’s no better place to demonstrate it than the house of God itself.

For Women:

It’s important to remember that Church reunions are social gatherings, not a party or a night-out with friends. Remember to avoid and eliminate backless and low-cut dresses, spaghetti straps, tank tops or anything that shows too much. No one said, although, you can’t be fashionable. That’s a lot of possibilities of dressing with style and beauty, whilst maintaining the right conservative way to attend church. Also overly glitzy jewelry or over expensive accessories should be avoided, as humility and humbleness are qualities often remembered on the Bible.

Don’t wear anything that rises above your knee. There’s not an exactly measurement or length of clothing that’s considered bad or good, but common sense is highly valuated here. Avoid showing skin or using clothes too tight, which can turn personal private parts visible to everybody – anything transparent is forbidden. Again: use common sense. What is good for one may not be good for another. Try to dress thinking what would be the most accurate to the occasion, always remembering you are not dressing for impress others. Concentrate on humble your heart before God, so your looks will reflect the inside and show the piety that is important to every believer.

For men:

Avoid using hats or other head accessories. For most of Christian traditions, to enter a church with your head covered is a sign of disrespect, especially Roman Catholic Church. In the western culture in general, it’s a sign of respect to take off your hat, whatever it may be, to show respect to superior authorities. What can be more powerful authority than God Himself?

If you never have attended to a church service before, you can talk with members of that community before going, asking what the proper dress code to be used is. Remember: stay moderate, conservative, avoid exaggerations and remember you’re in the church to serve and respect God and others beside you.

Ponytail

You can do a ponytail at your crown and it will look very fashionable. But if you do it towards your neck area, you will look more down-to-earth. Whichever style of ponytail you choose, you should back-comb your hair and straighten it by running the comb from the top downwards. Use a band to secure the ponytail. Make sure the band is simple, and not something glittery that might be inappropriate for the church.

Bun

This is an illustrated drawing of the bun hairstyle.

You can slide a headband over your head. Make sure the headband is stretchy so that you can slide your hair into it. Then tuck all the hair at the back into the headband, forming a nice bun.

Leave it open

You can leave your hair open by combing it well so that it remains in place. After taking shower, you can apply some hair serum to prevent any flyaways. If you have hair that comes in front of your face, secure hair with pins. You should look neat when you go to the church.

Braided ponytail

First, make a simple ponytail and secure your hair with a rubber band. Then create a nice braid all the way downwards, securing the end with another rubber band. This is a simple style but looks quite fashionable.

How to Wear your Hair for Church

How you dress and style your hair when going to church is a very contentious issue with some puritans decrying any beautification.

What the Bible Says:

There are two specific portions of the Bible which refer to personal attire. 1 Timothy 2:9-10 says “.. in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but which is proper for women professing godliness.”

1 Peter 3:3- 4 says, “Do not let your adornment be that outward adorning of arranging the hair, of wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, which the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

Looking at these passages, you would be inclined to think that women should not wear gold jewelry and should never braid their hair. But does the bible indeed forbade you from styling your hair? Most historians believe Paul was just trying to stress the need to be modest and not draw attention to oneself. He refers to braided hair, gold, and costly clothing to describe what needed to be avoided. During his time, that is the first century these three were the main reasons that drew the attention to the women.

Paul wanted women to stop trying to impress others with gaudy dresses and instead dress in that “which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.”

In essence, God does not forbid us from wearing our clothes and our hair in a modest, elegant manner.

How do you wear your hair:

Some churches expect women to cover their hair when attending service. So wearing a scarf or a shawl will be a good choice in such cases. You can also wear hair in a manner that does not offend the sensibilities of the congregation. You should avoid overly elaborate hairstyles that draw attention. Artificial coloring has to be avoided too.

Keep your hairstyle simple. You might want to wear a ponytail, or you can also put a clip in it. Leaving it all down too works. You can add some elegance to the hair by straightening it or putting a few waves in the hair. Some churches prohibit styles like side swept bangs, Egyptian Cleopatra look, spikes, curly strands and the list is endless. You should find a form that is suitable, dignified and not difficult to maintain. You should desist changing your style to the latest fad. The hairstyle should be attractive without drawing attention to yourself. Accessories to the hair should be simple and conservative.

Modest and Cute Ideas to Wear to Church

Whether you like it or not, you are expected to dress modestly when you go to Church. In the early days of the Church people used to wear bland robes, which were more like pillowcases with cutouts for the hands and legs. We have come a long way from then, but even today, you have to dress appropriately for the Church, if you do not want to ruffle the sentiments of the gathering. However, being modest does not mean you should not be fashionable. Here are some ideas on how to dress appropriately for Church.

Church

Think Conservative:

When deciding on the outfit for attending Church thinks very conservative. Most churches still have a strict dress code and violating this system is not taken lightly. You are better-off leaving out the backless and low cut dresses when dressing for Church. Any clothing exposing your midriff is frowned upon, as are transparent dresses, spaghetti straps, and tank tops.

Avoid short dresses:

Most churches expect women to wear appropriate dresses. Choosing darker non-lace tops can help in avoiding wearing something that is see through. You may have to settle for a midi, maxi or angle length skirt to meet the dress code requirements of your church.  You should avoid anything that rises above the knee. There are no set standards for the length of the dress that you can wear, use your common sense to select one that will not offend the faithful. In cases you are not comfortable wearing a dress, you can go with a pair of dark pants. A dark top and blazer will make you look stylish yet conservative. You should avoid stretch pants or leggings though.

The Footwear:

Dressing appropriately for church includes choosing a good set of footwear. You can choose to wear heels or flats but wearing sneakers is not appropriate. But the heels should be somewhere below 3 inches. Avoid loud colors like red or bright pink.

Accessories:

Some churches specifically require headwear for women like a scarf or shawl. Forgetting this may not get you thrown out of Church, but you are sure to cause a few frowns. You should ideally choose simple accessories. It’s time for meditation and introspection, not the time to flaunt your riches.

Dresses for Men:

You dress up to visit your friends, don’t you think you should dress your best to meet the Lord Almighty? A suit and tie would be the ideal outfit to attend Church. But if you don’t have one, you can wear a button-down shirt. The shirt should not be wrinkled or dirty.  A black pant with shiny shoes should complete the attire. You can wear khaki as an alternative to black. If you choose jeans, avoid those with holes or patches.  Never wear shorts to Church, even if it is hot. Having your shirt tucked in, wear a belt with your pant.

While Churches expect women to cover their head, they expect the men not to cover theirs. Wearing a hat inside the Church is considered disrespectful even today.
