Full Answer

The Bible does not offer precise instructions on how Christians should dress. In Deuteronomy, the Bible states that clothes made of a wool-linen mixture should not be worn. Most modern Christians, however, believe that such rules were rendered obsolete after the New Covenant. In 1 Timothy and 1 Peter, women are instructed to dress modestly and with decency and propriety. They should not wear jewelry or gold, nor should they braid or style their hair. Some Christians interpret this very literally, while others do not.
