Like a good Catholic girl I went to church on Sunday and as I was trying to concentrate on the mass, a girl stood up and all I could think was "did she go to the wrong place?" Obviously she was not dressed appropriate for mass—a tight dress with over the knee boots screams more clubbing than church if you ask me. So, if you want to look fashionable at mass but still be on God's good list, here are few ideas that will send you straight to heaven.
You will never go wrong with a shift, an A-line or a wrap dress like this one. Just make sure the dress hits you right on the knees or below. I would stay away from dresses that are too short or too tight. Add a cardigan, (think Michelle Obama), some pearls and you are set.
If you are not into dresses, try a pencil skirt like this one (make sure it's not extremely tight—leave that for your next hot date) or an A-line skirt. They are not only feminine but also look good on most body types. Pair it with a pretty blouse and pair of pumps.
If you are more of a pants kind of chica, why not wear your favorite pair of jeans? I love these. Of course you have to dress them up! I once wore a pair of blue colored jeans with a pretty yellow blazer, a white t-shirt and some flats. I went straight from church to a date—all I did was changed my shoes! You can wear your jeans or pants with pretty much everything, just make sure you don't wear crop tops, spaghetti straps or show too much cleavage.
Tip: leave the high stilettos at home. As much as I love my prosti shoes (aka heels), I don't wear them to church. Instead, try heels that are lower than 3 inches. Pumps are a great choice to wear with a shift dress, a pencil skirt or pants. Other pieces to stay away from are shorts, leggings, tight or short dresses and skirts, sandals, flip flops, and of course, see through blouses.
