Selena Gomez Is Fashionably Feminine in a Jumpsuit and We Give One Star a Makeover!

Ladies, I have so much fun with these MIH posts! Why? Because they allow me the opportunity to see what’s available for modest apparel. More than that, it proves that modesty really isn’t that difficult to attain.

Finally, these posts also prove that you can still be fashionable and feminine without sacrificing your modesty. Ladies, I pray that the modest selections I feature are helpful to you.

Now on to this week’s selections!

christa-allen-fendi-2013

Christa Allen

This is a great classic black, embroidered dress. It hits the knee with perfect modesty and is so feminine!

Tali-Lennox-

Tali Lennox

More and more jumpsuits are making their way to the red carpet. This one is such a lovely color. I love how it’s shapely without being too fitted.

selena-gomez-stars-dance-promo

Selena Gomez

Maybe I’m jumpsuit crazy, or maybe they’re just all the rage recently, but here’s another adorable version. A little more formal this time, this jumpsuit is slightly looser, but just as pretty and feminine! LOVE!

2013 BET Awards - Arrivals

Jordin Sparks

While the colors and pattern of this dress are fun and summery, the style is way too tight and short. If it wasn’t so snug around the hips and the length hit a tad above the knee, it would be more modest!

Poll

Which of our three modest looks is your favorite?

    Okay girlies, i Just have to point out something here…
    I notice that some girls always see the “immodest dress” and say that they dont think its immodest or that they would even wear it, that theres nothing wrong with it.
    But i would just like to remind you girls that when we judge the modesty of something, it is not wise to judge it based on what YOU as a female think. Many outfits that we see as cute/pretty, guys would look at it on a girl and lust. We must think from a males perspective, cuz that is who we are trying to keep from stumbling. When you judge an outfits modesty, look at it and say, could this outfit lead a guys eyes to my theighs/cleavage/butt/privates or not? That is the question.
    And also, you can be fully covered, bearing no skin and still cause a guy to lust if your clothes are tight enough.

    I also think it’s a bit much to say that Jordin Sparks is comtting an “unrighteousness act” with what’s she’s wearing. And how can you hold someone accountable by essentially talking behind their backs? How can you hold someone accountable if you don’t even know them? You don’t even know if these ladies are Christian lol

    You’re not holding them accountable, you’re pretty much gossiping and judging their outfits – very similar to any secular magazine.

      I agree with Kungfugirl, this blog was only made to help us visually see what is modest and what is not modest. The girls in the pictures have absolutely nothing to do with the topic, just the clothes that they are wearing. And where exactly did it say that Jordan Sparks was committing an “unrighteousness act”.. I didn’t read that anywhere. I also didn’t read anything judgmental or gossipy against these girls. In fact, this blog didn’t mention anything at all towards these girls other than their names underneath the picture.

    Food for thought (not my words, but I agree): “Modest is hottest? Is that what Christian girls are trying to be, hot? Are they to broadcast with their t-shirt that they are hot so guys will know, since the guys can’t figure it out otherwise considering that the girls are covered? How is proclaiming yourself to be hot any better than showing yourself to be hot? I don’t get it.” – Tina Collins

    I am really excited that jumpsuits are coming into style. They seem really simple and comfortable. And, they’re modest too! I love the one that Selena is wearing. I can’t wait to see what people do with em in the near future! -LJ

    Selena’s hair is just so beautiful, it’s almost unbelievable, but her outfit reminds me of pajamas.

    I’m imagining wearing Jordan’s dress, and I just think it’d be really impractical, being that tight. I mean, walking around in that thing would be hard enough, imagine having to run? If something comes after her, she’s in trouble.

      Are you not able to take self defense classes in your area? Speaking as someone who wears dresses like that all the time, they are actually much easier to move around in than more “modest” dresses (aside from maxi dresses). And if someone is trying to attack you (why would you dress up to walk alone?) , I’m pretty sure showing a guy your butt is a little better than being raped and murdered. Just a logical thought. Lesson is: dress up and buy a gun.

      I’m not sure if you’ve ever wore tight dresses, but as someone that has- they’re very easy to walk in, IMO. And if she’s running from something (which I highly doubt she’ll have to, since she’s a celebrity and most have bodyguards or paps following them) I highly doubt that her dress would be a problem. In fact, it would be less of a problem- it’s unlikely that it would snag on anything or get caught. She could just hike it up, if the dress is really in her way.

      What I would be worried about running in would be heels, lbr.

    Yeah I still disagree, I know you already know that many disagree with including “immodest” in these articles period, but I also disagree about Jordin Spark’s outfit being immodest.

    1) Very gorgeous, simple, and classic! I especially love the shape of it 🙂 Her makeup is really well-done, too.
    2) Very pretty and unique style. Love the Bohemian accessories. However, the outfit does not fit her well; the cut isn’t quite right.
    3) Very pretty pattern. Love the red nails and white shoes; hair is perfect. However, the very busy pattern kind of looks like it’s swallowing her. A little too much fabric.
    4) Love the dress, makeup, accessories, everything! Wouldn’t change a thing (except make it a few inches longer)!

    I think both ladies are working the jumpsuits well, but I think they could have accessorized them way better. I would’ve switched up the shoes and added some bracelets. But they still look fabulous 🙂

      haha that’s kind of the problem…i agree that it’s too tight, just because my mom doesn’t let me wear dresses that are that tight because of the way it draws attention to your hips and areas near that…so i don’t consider them modest. but it’s certainly not anywhere near the worst thing you could wear.

      • AllisonGrace

    Oh my goodness, these women are totally rocking these clothes! I especially love Tali’s ensemble – it is just so perfect for her body and she pulls it off so well! I agree with you, lotr1997 – Selena’s is a little too busy for my taste, but that’s just me! And oh my word, Jordin looks so beautiful and womanly. But the length and tightness around the hips would make me super-uncomfortable. Not only would I feel super self-conscious that the tightness would draw eyes to my rear, but when I sat down, it would be so easy to see up the since it would ride up even further! The style of the top half suits her beautifully, though.

    I love jumpsuits. There’ve been a few movies I saw when I was little where they wear mice jumpsuits, and I lust love them. (Don’t ask for titles. They’re ones my parents picked, and I never learned titles.) haha
    Anyway, I love the green one, if it were in a different color and pattern. Like… make it a brown or orange solid, or a black with floral and I’d love it.

    The “immodest” dress in this, in my opinion, is not immodest. It’s not that tight, and I wear dresses and shorts that are shorter than that. I guess they only look shorter on me though, because I’m a little on the tall side.

  27. mkay77

    Posted by mkay77 on July 8, 2013 at 18:56

    This is one of the few times when I’m not a fan of all of the outfits. Jordin’s would be my favorite, had it been just a tiny bit longer. Just an inch or two would have done the trick 🙂 Not too big of a fan of jumpsuits; whenever I think of jumpsuits, I think of skydiving…I have no idea how those two associate with each other XD

  28. joigirl36

    Posted by joigirl36 on July 8, 2013 at 18:36

    I personally think these posts would be much more efficient if the unmodest picture wasn’t apart of the post. Modesty is a very wide term and can be interpreted in many different ways. Showing outfits that are modest is one thing, but saying an outfit is not is an entirely different thing. I love the last dress much more than the other outfits. I just love the colors and it’s something I would wear. However, some people would think it is not modest enough. I think that most people would agree that by just showing the three modest pictures and not the unmodest picture the posts would be received a lot better.

    I just wore a dress like the one Jordin wore yesterday. I even wore it to church, and I got a lot of compliments from other people- not guys, older ladies and my friends. My dress was even strapless.

    Guys, just because these posts say that this dress isn’t modest, doesn’t mean that it isn’t. My church was fine with what I wore, my parents (who don’t even like me walking out in tank tops) were fine with the dress, and I have a sneaking suspicion that God was too.

    • Mandi Pi

      Posted by Mandi Pi on July 9, 2013 at 03:49

      personally, i think it’s just a bit too tight (and that’s mostly because my mom doesn’t let me wear dresses that are that tight)…it’s hard to tell exact length in pictures, but if that dress rode up any more it’d be too short. (: (but i have some dresses that short, i just have to wear shorts under them for safety). (: but anyways, it’s perfectly fine to have your own personal standards, as long as there are limits.

      • feministchristian

        Posted by feministchristian on July 9, 2013 at 13:45

        Yeah, see, that’s the problem- what are the limits? Can’t show too much leg, too much cleavage? But what’s too much??? You said that if she sat down, it’ll ride up, and show too much leg. Who are you to say whether or not there’s too much leg showing? Is the church suppose to tell us? My best friend wears a bikini and my pastor is fine with it, so is that the limit? can’t show more than a bikini would?

        THAT’S why we shouldn’t telling girls what they can and cannot wear. Because everyone is different, every culture is different, we all have different opinions of what modesty is. Modesty should be about the heart and intentions. It shouldn’t be about protecting guys and making sure they don’t ‘stumble’, it should be about the women. It should be about making sure a lady puts more value in her own opinion of herself than a guy’s opinion of her. It should be about letting women know that she shouldn’t put all of her self worth in her outfits. It should be about letting women know that they are more important than what they wear. It should be letting women know that if a man objectifies her or harrasses her, it’s not her fault.

        I work all day passing out flyers and sticking them in doorways. If i stand up straight, my shorts reach just a little below my thumb, and I wear a T shirt that isn’t loose on me, but doesn’t cling to my body. I’m 16, and often get confused for younger- sometimes even 14, 13. I don’t have a large bust or tiny legs, however, just yesterday, when I was working, I had three groups of men holler and whistle at me. Two groups were teenagers, one was a group of grown men. Even though I didn’t acknowledge them and just walked away, they wouldn’t stop until I was out of their eyesight.

        Was that my fault? Is it my fault because of my outfit? But I couldn’t wear any longer shorts than what I was already wearing- heat stroke is very possible for someone who is out in the sun all day, and I had to stay cool. I couldn’t wear a loose skirt because I have to bend down a lot to pick up fallen flyers. I wasn’t walking in a suggestive way- in fact, I looked gross and dirty and sweaty, my hair up in a messy ponytail. I didn’t smile at those men or imply in any way that I was interested in them. They just started to shout and leer at me because they thought that it was okay to do so.

        Basically what I’m trying to say is that in order to get men to stop objectifying ladies, we should be telling THEM that. Ladies shouldn’t have to change their wardrobe for men because sometimes we simply can’t wear anything else. Or sometimes we simply don’t want to. If we normalize women wearing revealing outfits, than those outfits wouldn’t be seen as revealing. It used to be scandalizing when ladies showed their ankles. It’s not anymore, and now no one (no men) have any problems with ladies showing their ankles.

        Anyways Mandi, I’m really sorry for this long reply. I’m not at all trying to blame you for anything at all- I think it’s great that you follow your mom’s rules and agree with them- I love it when I agree with my own mother’s rules lol. You seem very, very lovely. I just wanted to show a different point of view. Sorry for the spiraling rant <3

        that’s true, just because i say it’s modest doesn’t mean it is. But just because Ms TM says it is doesn’t it that it ISN’T modest. It’s all subjective, you see.

    I love #1! It is so classy, and she wears it wonderfully! I love the color and design of #2, though it would look frumpy on me! She makes it look lovely, and the hat is adorable! I like Selena’s, but it is a bit busy for my taste! She looks great! #4 is nice, but definitely way to short and tight! Jordin is such a lovely woman, and I think she would look great in a full skirted dress!

      Posted by Mandi Pi on July 9, 2013 at 17:44

      haha it’s okay, i’m a professional spiraling ranter. 😉 i’m probably the queen. 🙂 i mostly meant limit jokingly like not walking around in your underwear. i believe modesty is somewhat about respecting guys enough to not wear something that shows almost everything and makes it almost impossible not to think thoughts that probably shouldn’t be entering their mind…but by no means is that the ONLY reason of course.

      everyone has their opinions, but honestly i don’t know why girls want to wear bikinis…i mean they say it’s for comfort and whatnot but i mean what’s the point of showing your stomach?? what’s the point of wearing something that’s basically underwear?? usually it’s to draw attention to yourself in some way, or to appear sexy, or maybe just to feel good about themselves…don’t worry i’m not saying every girl who wears a bikini has bad intentions and is a bad person :), but sadly for a lot of girls, that’s why they dress like that…and i do find it sad that society treats girls in such a bad way that they feel like they have to dress like that to feel good about themselves. :/ but anywho.

      i agree modesty should definitely be about your heart and intentions, but the line should be drawn SOMEWHERE, because like i’ve said, we need to glorify God with our bodies (and while that obviously means not using it in a bad way, it also means not wearing clothes that show/seriously draw attention to certain parts of your body).

      and it’s not always about making a guy necessarily “stumble”, sometimes even if they aren’t completely sinning they are still automatically looking at you in a way they probably shouldn’t….once i tried on a dress that was really tight around my hips and it fit my figure really nicely, and i loved it…but my mom said i couldn’t get it and i asked why, and she said because i don’t need you drawing guys’ attention to your long legs and figure and thinking “she’s hot”. and i have to say i agree with her……and yes, if you’re plenty covered (like what you were talking about when you were walking around the neighborhood), and guys are still thinking that, then yeah, it’s pretty much their fault because it’s likely nothing was tempting them SO strongly that they couldn’t resist.

    I love the black dress! It’s so classic and lovely! I love the colors and patterns of both the jumpsuits. However, I’m not a fan of the jumpsuit style. It’s a fine style; I just prefer dresses. 🙂
