It’s a tricky thing, trying to dress for my job on Sundays. There are things I’ve learned not to wear the hard way (like sparkly floral headbands – yes… I did that). But I want to share a few tips for how I choose my outfits, because it took me a few years to realize what was both appropriate and functional for a platform.
I Almost Always Opt for Tunic Tops
It’s just so nice not having to worry about a top being too short, or bending down to plug in my guitar and everyone seeing my underwear. Longer tops on stage just make me feel more confident, and allows room to to move around! Also it’s MUCH easier to hide a bulky wireless pack underneath a long flowy top.
I Try To Avoid Sequins/Sparkle
If the focus was all about me, this would be a totally different story. I LOVE LOVE LOVE anything that glitters (yes, I am a child, thank you very much). However, I have learned that in a worship setting, it is definitely distracting.
99% of the Time, I Wear Jeans
I love dresses, and and love skirts. The reality on Sunday, though, is that I am always crawling on the stage floor, trying to coil cables, pick up picks, and plug in gear. Jeans are just a no-brainer.
Because I don’t have much play in the fact that I always wear jeans and have limited top options, shoes are my expressive outlet on stage. If I wear heels, I usually opt for a block heel over a skinny heel for extra balance when I’m playing my guitar. Shoes are just fun, it doesn’t matter what your job is!!!
