Today we are going to talk about modesty and what we think of it.
First, lets define modesty
MODESTY – Behaviour, manner, or appearance intended to avoid impropriety or indecency
– Oxford Learner’s Dictionary
We are going to talk about modesty in relation to our dress code. Ever heard of the statement “the way you dress is the way you are addressed”? Right! Me too!
Now lets define modesty in our own terms!
MODESTY – Modesty can be dedined as behaviour, manner or appearance intended to avoid impropriety or indencency in relation to the environment one finds him/herself. – GirlUp And Walk 😀
I used to have an issue with dressing during my early teen yeard because i simply did not know what to wear to anywhere. The iea of modesty differs with different environments or locations.
For example Cynthia’s parents let her wear mini skirts at home but not to work or to church. Cynthia’s parents are not saying that mini skirts are wrong, but cynthias parents are saying that it shpuldnt be worn outside to work or church because her personality might be perceived differently.
Have we understood now that modesty has different definitions at dofferent locations? Awesome.
Now, what do we think about when we hear that a girl is dressed modestly? Stop! I know what youre thinking! Big clothes thst dont fit? No make up? No good shoes? “Mary Amaka”clothes abi?
Thats not true though.
We must not look frumpy or churchy to look modest..thats the whole idea behind todays discussion. Below are examples of modest looking women who sre still hot..
