5 Bible Verses That Explain How A Christian Woman Should Dress

There are a number of verses in the Bible that speak directly to Christian women and how they should dress. Let's give them a look now so you can be guided accordingly too.

1. Women should dress modestly.

1 Timothy 2:9

"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array"

Women are expected to dress modestly and put on modest apparel. They don't need to be at things that are unnecessarily costly but that does not means that they should dress in a poor manner. They should listen to the holy spirit and let Him speak to them.

2. The beauty inside is what matters.

1 Peter 3:3

"Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;"

Quite similar to the scripture above, this verse from Peter talks about how inner beauty is more important than outer beauty. God always looks at the heart, not the clothes, not the jewelry and not the riches. So, it's not also just about the good deeds you do that makes you beautiful, it is your gentle quiet spirit and pure heart that makes you shine.

3. Women should always dress accordingly.

In Deutoronomy 22:5

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

Women expected to dress accordingly as they are meant to dress. They are expected to wear clothes that will make them look like a woman and not cloth that will give them a deceiving look. That is also a way wives can respect their husbands.

4. A Christian woman must always practice good judgment when dressing.

In Proverbs 11:22, the Bible says

"Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion."

A truly beautiful lady must exercise discernment since it demonstrates her ability to make wise decisions. According to the scripture, if a woman lacks insight, she will make incorrect decisions, much like a pig. Outside beauty is meaningless if a lady can't tell whether she's dressed suitably or not. A truly beautiful woman fears the Lord, and this is what attracts men to Christian women.

5. Dress yourself with strength and dignity.

In Proverbs 31:25, the Bible says:

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."

When you see a Christian woman, you should be able to sense spiritual strength and dignity in her. She's able to face every obstacle and she's able to fight any challenging trial by the devil.
