In this day and age it can be increasingly difficult to be modest. Whether it is too hard to find modest clothing or there are simply too many people being immodest around you, the current culture makes it very simple to become immodest in one’s dress and actions. In a situation like this it is easy to have an “if you can’t beat them, join them” mentality. After all, it is the easy thing to do isn’t it? The answer is yes but you deserve more than easy.
Needless to say, you can tell a lot about a person by how they dress. For this reason alone, it is important to dress modestly. By dressing immodestly, you could run the risk of giving off the image that you are something, not someone, to be looked at. When you focus on the physical, such as how you look by dressing a certain way, you can become that focus. For example, someone dressing to entice someone of the opposite sex by dressing immodestly can be seen as “too easy.” Depending on who takes notice, this could mean one of two things. First, that person will want nothing to do with you because you appear to be “easy” and second, that person will want everything to do with you but for the wrong reasons.
In a way, dressing immodestly can be a sign that you don’t care about yourself enough to put effort into your appearance. It is much easier to buy clothing that is immodest because there is such an overabundance of such clothing in stores. In fact, depending on where you shop, it might be a chore to even find something halfway decent. For this reason, it shows a lot to someone who might be attracted to you for the right reasons if you are modestly dressed. Someone who is attracted to your whole being and not just your body will appreciate the effort you put in to keep a modest appearance.
Taking all this into account, one can see how dressing modestly can almost be considered an art form. The amount of time and effort put into finding modest clothing is well worth it. Not only for your own self-respect but so that others can know that you do respect yourself and are not “easy.”
