You don't have to take your style cues from the world or legalistic saints. Here's how to make fashion sense.
DO: Wear fashionable, modest clothing. The Bible doesn't say you have to look like a prude.
DON'T: Wear form-fitting, tight clothes. By doing so you cause others to take their eyes off God to look at you.
DO: Wear clothes that complement your body type. Look for clothing stores that carry styles with your figure in mind.
DON'T: Expose flesh that should be reserved for your mate's eyes only. This means covering cleavage so you aren't tempting someone of the opposite sex. Don't let your underwear peek out of pants or tops.
DO: Wear clothes that represent your God-given sense of personal style.
DON'T: Let people convince you that it's wrong to wear certain colors. Remember, God made the rainbow!
DO: Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you select clothing that honors Him.
DON'T: Allow a church's or denomination's set of legalistic, unbiblical rules (such as "no pants" or "no short hair") create an atmosphere of spiritual bondage for you.
