Why It Is Okay To Dress Like a Grandma
Many young women feel the need to dress according to what they believe others find attractive. If you wander out into any given city on a Saturday night, you will no doubt find that many girls brave the elements (even in mid-winter) to bear as much skin as possible, in order to attract a partner. Yet there are many positives to covering up, and making your Grandmother proud.
The first positive reason to dress modestly is that you will not freeze to death. Although you might be tempted to wear a sequined mini dress out to the dance-floor, try keep in mind that neither sequins nor mini dresses insulate the body. Is hypothermia really your aim when choosing that garment? If so, then continue as you were.
As a rule, I always believe that if you have cellulite on your legs, then your hemline should be 1cm below that. If you always strive to achieve this principle, then no one will see your wobbly bits. Everyone wins.
I don’t know about you, but when I watch Golden Girls (which occurs daily in my household), I am highly envious of all their outfits. The clothes on that show have so much colour, uniqueness and sass. Grandmas have sass! If you ever get the opportunity, ask Grandma if she needs to ditch any of her clothing treasures, you will be sure to find a gem.
If you dress modestly, you will be less likely to attract unwanted attention from sleazy twits. You don’t have to be covered from head to toe with only minuscule holes for breathing and vision. If you find yourself next to someone who prides himself on being ‘a ladies man’, at least you’ve got yourself covered (excuse the pun).
Always dressing like you're living in the 1950’s takes it a bit far. I myself like to wear all sorts of styles, yet the principle is still the same. If you could wear your outfit in front of Grandma without getting a walking stick to the face, then you are fine to leave the house. She doesn’t have to like the particular style or trend, but if she removes you from the will, the outfit is a no-go.
