I don't have many skirts, but I wear usually a gray skirt (not for any particular reason...just because I have it) and a nice shirt, with either dress shoes, my nice flats, or my good boots. A lot of the time, I wear an every day shirt that just looks nice! I'd wear a dress sometimes, but I only have one.
I wear the same for Wednesday night prayer meeting. Mostly it's the same for everyone else.

Like Star said, our church is formal or casual. I'm a casual chic. I don't like dresses, or skirts, PERIOD. I usually wear a nice T-shirt, and skinny, or boot cut jeans, (in winter) and boots, or my wheelies. :) I actually mostly wear my wheelies! We haven't been at this church in summer, but I'll probably wear the same, except shorts and short sleeves! LOL! And, I would NEVER wear muddy boots. EVER. It's either nice boots, or tennis shoes. (or wheelies if u happen to have some!)

I wear either dressy or casual.Usually dressy on Sunday morning, and more casual Sunday night.And on Thursday night it really depends on what mood I'm in , but usually casual. It's often a dress with a jean jacket over it and boots. Or a skirt with layered undershirts and a blazer or something :lol: like I said, depends on what mood I'm in

Wow this topic seems to be dominated by the female sector, save Garrett's bikini of course. Umm for me I usually wear dress pants and a nice button up shirt on Sun. morning. On Sun. night's and various church functions I'll wear Boot cut jeans with a cowboy style button up shirt(I love dressing western). I rarely wear t shirts, I could if I wanted to, but I think cool button up shirts are awesome. Dressing stylishly is kind of a hobby of mine, no this does not mean I wear suits and tuxes around, lol. I like wearing stuff like jeans and cowboy shirts, but still looking refined and stylish.

P.S I'm going to post a Q/A/about me thread, in the Gallery, so I'll post some pics of my wardrobe. :D

I usually wear a skirt and a solid shirt. However, if I'm in nursery, I'll wear navy jeans and and a fancy blouse. I believe it's a good idea to wear something nice to church, to show respect for the One we're worshipping, but if we start to add rules for dress or start judging people by what they wear, we aren't showing the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ. I go to a Presbyterian church that is pretty laid back, but most generally wear something nicer than everyday clothes. For instance, most of my friends wear skirts most of the time, but two of my friends will occasionally wear sports shorts and tshirts. My pastor does wear formal black robes, but that's to keep people focused on the service rather than on his clothes. This is just me, though, and I hope I haven't offended anyone.

I wear formal clothes to church. In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with being casual. However the members in our church dress up a lot, and I'd feel disrespectful or something...in their eyes. But in God's eyes, I don't think he's taking note on my shoes or the brand of my dress.

I agree. I dress pretty casual. In fact, the majority of my shirts are band shirts, and a lot of them *cough* have skulls. :P But no one at my church has complained to me so far... :D

Jeans. Whatever shirt. Doesn't matter to me; if I'm not going to dress all fancy for my daily communion with the Lord, why should I change that just to please other people? :P
