Quiz: Are You Addicted to Fashion?

Fashion is fun! I love it when new colors, combinations and styles are introduced every season. And when you can spice up some of your current styles with a new twist, well, that’s just a bonus in my eyes.

But fashion isn’t always a great thing. Occasionally, people don’t just follow fashion, they allow it to dictate their lives. It’s okay for Christian girls to enjoy fashion, but when does that love turn into obsession?

Consider the following questions

  1. Do you follow fashion religiously?
  2. Are you constantly asking your parents to buy you the most fashionable outfits, regardless of how much they cost?
  3. Do you select items of clothing simply because they’re in style?
  4. Do you wear what’s in fashion, regardless of whether the style suits you?
  5. Do you care more about being stylish than being modest?
  6. Do you judge people by what they wear?
  7. Do you make fun of peers with no fashion sense?
  8. Do you get excited and energized when you go shopping?
  9. Do you spend hours in one store, selecting and trying on clothes and shoes?
  10. Do you care about fashion more than anything else in your life?

If you answered “yes” to most or all of the above, then you may be addicted to fashion.

Scripture calls for women to be modest. We are not to stand out or call attention to ourselves.

Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire (1 Timothy 2:9).

It’s all about moderation in most areas of our lives. But when it comes to fashion, it means that we should not be so fashionable that it calls negative attention to ourselves.

The other thing to remember is that we as Christians are directed not to conform to the world. Fashion is often a reflection of all that is worldly.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).

If you focus your attention on what God expects of you, rather than on your fashionable peers and fashion magazines, then your intention is Godly.

As I mentioned earlier, fashion is fun, but it shouldn’t consume your life. And it shouldn’t take your focus away from Christ and His expectations of you.

Ladies, do you believe that you may be addicted to fashion?

    I love fashion, but I’m not addicted to it. I just love creating my own style, which is vintage/retro.

    I love fashion and wearing cute clothes, but pleasing God and being modest with how I dress always comes first 🙂

    I LIKE fashion but not to the point where it gets IN-modest! I try to honor God in everything I wear! 🙂 I love shopping for clothes though! Especially when it’s clothes for church. 😀 I went shopping today and got a pretty shirt for church at kohls and a pair of jeans! 🙂

    I answered no for all of them! I like fashion and I like to be a girly girl when it comes to fashion but I do not get obsessed with it or anything like that. I think it’s super fun to try on new styles and just mix and math the clothes and have them all work together. I love that! Plus some cute jewelry and a nice hairstyle 🙂

    I am most likely addicted to fashion. I’m ashamed to admit that i do make snap judgments based on what a person is wearing. I find myself thinking about fashion so much, and I need to remind myself that its a developing obsession of worldly possessions. And as long as its not showing my butt, boobs, or belly its fine. Which is pretty much the dress code of my household and school. Shopping is one of my favorite things to do in the world! I think i have been well controlling my addition because I dont have any money! lol

    According to this quiz, I’m not addicted to Fashion. Unfortunately, I am addicted to the internet lol. Anyway, I’m not a huge fan of shopping. I can’t imagine trying on outfits for hours, I’d get so bored!

    I said yes to six things; but I am not addicted to fashion! I just enjoy shopping and wearing stylish clothes…The only reason I spend hours in each store is because I’m tiny and it takes me forever to find clothes that fit me!

    I am not addicted. I said yes to three things. And the only reason I stay in one store for hours at a time is when I am jean shopping. And I will not where something that is immodest. But I still get really excited about shopping. Who doesn’t?

    i love fashion and being modest, but I dont think that is a sin to stand out. I think fashion is a great way to express your self and I love standing out for being fashionably dressed!
