Religious apparel has developed greatly from the way the early Christians used to dress to todaya€™s modern and trendy Christian clothing. In the past, women used to dress primarily in long skirts and the men used to attend church services in clothes that would better fit official functions like suits and ties. This has changed with developments in designer clothing industry and trendier designs have come up to complement the traditional and boring clothing.
The youth have played a big role in driving this change in the society as is common with the fashion industry at large. It is evident that they also play a big role the trends that fashion takes. Young believers desire to look trendy and stylish before their peers, while at the same time use their clothing to spread the love of Christ. The key feature in their apparel and accessories is the biblical messages and images printed.
Gender sensitive clothing
All clothing is particularly designed for either gender while some are unisex. The same applies for religious apparel and you will find a section specifically for mena€™s clothes and another for women clothes. Mena€™s clothing can include hoodies, beanies, hats, baseball caps, t-shirts and jackets which appear in different designs and masculine colors.
Women are particular not only about what they wear, but also how they look in the apparel they wear. A woman will be more attracted to feminine colors, designs, and clothes that flatter them too. Womena€™s Christian clothing include, tops sweatshirts t-shirts and scarves among other modest or conservative types of clothing for a woman. A woman is particularly concerned about the style of clothing, as they have to portray their faith in Christ and not lead other people astray; they will tend to avoid clothing that reveal too much.
Christian apparel accessorized with jewelry that is either contemporary or religious to complement the outfits stands out and looks more interesting. Jewelry used commonly is bracelets with wordings like a€?WWJDa€™ crucifix necklaces with a crucifix pedant, earrings and other stylish jewelry that is modest for a believer.
Christian clothing is useful in making a statement about ones faith without opening the mouth to speaks and is a wonderful tool for evangelism too. Growth in the fashion industry has enables young believers to dress modestly and stylishly and integrate their faith into their daily life. Essentially, religious fashion has evolved over the years and is growing in leaps and bounds while preaching the gospel of Christ to the unreached and the rest of the world.
