Modesty is an attitude not just a style. I think actions are more important and less legalistic. I have to be humble, kind, forgiving, loving, non judgemental, un-condemning, un-selfrighteous, this can show through my clothing by not buying things that are extremely expensive.
I think I have to define what is too much and what is ok since there aren't any set guidelines other than don't be flashy, expensive, and obnoxious.
I think modesty to me connects to actions and inner faith. Modesty is you trying to show who you truly are, not just your physical traits. I think a part of modesty is basically avoiding being sexy. I realize I don't really feel comfortable when I am perceived obviously sexy. It's not because I don't feel sexy or I think it is wrong to be sexy, rather I don't think other people should have the privilege to see me sexy.
Actually, I think my version of modesty is not dressing for anyone or trying to impress anyone. Especially not trying to impress anyone sexually or with expensive clothes.
Are clothes purposeful and intelligent?
