Many Christians question the necessity of fashion. Isn’t it worldly to spend money on clothing? Wouldn’t it be better to send our money to starving children? We really shouldn’t care so much about how we look – it makes us vain and materialistic.
While I am not discounting these arguments, I believe that fashion has a place in everyone’s life.
What is your personal style? Are you a business-casual every day type of person? Or perhaps you prefer a flannel and jeans for everyday wear. Find what you feel most comfortable in, and invest in pieces that reflect you and give you some individual flair. But don’t forget about the other end of the spectrum, as you will inevitably be put in a situation where you need to dress up or down. With this in mind, you can go far.
While most people don’t appreciate being judged based upon their appearance, the reality is that people generally look first at your outward appearance. Despite your feelings on the matter, wouldn’t it be better to make a good impression? You never know who you may meet on any given day. They may be nobody to you, or they just might be your future employer or spouse. So step it up a notch, put a little thought into your wardrobe and prepare to dazzle those around you with your stunning good looks and excellent style.
