In like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works (1 Timothy 2:9-10).
Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God (1 Peter 3:3-4).
Do not be conformed to this world (Romans 12:2).
While the Bible does not provide a legalistic list of specific items that we can and cannot wear or how long or short our clothing can be, God leaves it to us as a matter of the heart. Our clothing can reveal the condition of our hearts. Ina world full of sin and immorality, it would seem that Christians would be even more diligent to be certain to dress in ways that are pleasing to God. Men should want the females in their family not to dress so as to promote lust. Females themselves should want to be careful that their clothing glorifies God and not their own bodies.
If women dress in ways that promote lust, then they themselves are guilty of sin. Being among Christians ought to be a safe place for those struggling with lust, yet I have heard women in church say that they will dress how they want, because if a man has a problem with lust, it is his problem and it does not matter how a female dresses. How foolish and uncaring such a statement is! I have heard Christian females compliment other Christian females on their tight or low-cut shirts or their short skirts or dresses, calling them cute rather than immodest.
