I recently had a discussion about whether or not I would wear a pair of edgy heels to church. My answer was no. Do six-inch heels, tight dresses/skirts, and breast bearing outfits have a place in church? My answer to this would be NO!
I may have an old-school mentality when it comes to what I wear to church, but some of you all have no mentality when it comes to the topic. I don’t understand why someone would think it’s appropriate to wear something you’d clearly wear to a club (or a night outing) to church. I don’t think you should be a distraction to other church-goers, and you’re doing just that when you decide to wear a dress that shows too much cleavage and heels that have leopard print, spikes, and a clear platform. I’m just saying!
For those who think it’s appropriate to wear these types of things to church, would you wear these things to your place of work? If you answered yes to this question, you probably don’t have the mindset to dress for the job you want. I find that what I would wear to work is something I’d also wear to church, and vice versa. However, I think the issue of what to wear to church goes to some people’s reasoning as to why they’re there in the first place. To some people, church is a fashion show and/or a place to be seen, which for obvious reasons is a terrible way of thinking.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think you should go to church in your grandma’s dress accompanied by white stockings and black Mary Janes. I just think you should reconsider going to church looking like you just got in from the club and didn’t have time to change. There’s nothing wrong with being stylish when you attend church, but remember the sole purpose of going. I can without a doubt tell you that that purpose is not to try to impress other members of the congregation. No, I don’t think you will praise any differently based on what you wear, but I do think there is a time and place for everything.
