Keeping Fashion Modest with DOUBLE HEADER...a full line of hosiery and accessories

Monday, June 27, 2011

In orthodox Judaism, modesty is a hot topics full of many passionate opinions and views. Modesty as I see it is about finding the balance between looking beautiful as a woman without being overtly attention seeking. When you have a passion for beautiful things, like I do...sometimes finding that balance is a real challenge. There will always be people who misunderstand each other but I think we all agree that modesty is about not distracting from the beautiful essense of a woman, that her value will shine through without needing to attract attention to her body.

Dressing fabulously and keeping in fashion while maintaining this level of modesty would hardly be possible if not for our 'frum' styles of donning shirts under sleeveless dresses and tops and even adding a simple pencil skirt under a tunic, dress or skirt that is too short. We have made our own fashion and I'm so proud when I see a woman wearing what would be a sleeveless mini-dress completely 'tzniusized' (made modest)...(is that even a word?)
Me and my daughter, Sara at her bridal shower last May. We are both wearing sleeved shells and skirts  under out tunics.  We stayed nice and cool in light fabric and colors.
There is also the issue of the orthodox married woman covering her hair. This is one of our most sacred practices and it is a beautiful one.  The point being that we are keeping one of our most beautiful features special for our husband, which actually adds another layer of sacredness to our marriages. And for those who say that wigs are nicer than hair...well in my opinion, although they ARE really nice, (and that's the beauty of Judaism...even in our restrictions we can find enjoyment if done with the right intentions) it is still not your real hair...end of story. That being said, whether you wear a wig or not, headscarves play an important role to all and is a staple in the modest and fashionable woman's wardrobe.

This is why a specialty shop like Double Header is a necessity in our lives.
