Whether you’re deemed “fashionable” or “unfashionable” you can’t escape the world of fashion. Messiah College, while it might be secluded from fashion empires such as New York or LA, has branded itself with its own look when it comes to the way we dress.

Colossians 3:12 says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” While meant in a figurative sense, a literal translation of this can be seen at Messiah. The unique way many Messiah students dress seems to resemble a way of honoring God while still having fun with fashion.

Sophomore Emily Budenz showed off her date night attire, reflecting the God-honoring trend at Messiah. Wearing a printed dress cut slightly above the knee, she ties sophistication in with a fun night out. The neckline of her dress added another appropriate touch and by pairing it with an oversized necklace, she was able to draw attention in for the right reasons.

By wearing a pink cardigan over the dress she was able to tie in the pink hues of the necklace. But with the chillier weather this time of year, the cardigan served a dull purpose. Budenz proved how easy it can be to layer your clothing without taking away from the overall look of the ensemble.

Junior Alex Monroe presented his date night attire in a more casual, yet just as fashionable way. Monroe went for more fun than for show while pairing his neutral colored pocket sweatshirt with a pair of plum colored chino pants. Both pieces compliment themselves nicely while expressing Monroe’s personality exquisitely.

“If I were to describe my style I’d say it’s a more progressive one. I feel it’s casual but with a twist,” explained Monroe.

Fall weather can also prove to be a tough switch from summer sandals to warmer footwear. Close-toed flats and Vans sneakers demonstrated a perfect and comfortable alternative. Budenz’s skin-colored flats solve her footwear dilemma while complimenting her outfit nicely. Monroe’s grey vans partner with the colors of his outfit nicely, providing him with appropriate footwear for this time of year.

Date night for women can typically mean wearing your tightest fitting dress or maximum skin-bearing top, and for s going out of your way to impress the girl, but it doesn’t have to.

“I dress modestly but in a way that is still fashionable,” Budenz says. She represents one of many ways to keep up with the fast-paced, forever changing world of fashion while still respecting her values. Boys, the only person you should be impressing is God, which alone will impress the lady.

To honor your God in every way means to honor Him just as much in the way you present yourself. Students at Messiah have taken on the role of honoring their God through the way they dress and it is not hard to notice when walking around campus.

How do resemble this in the way you dress?
