Readers, we know that most of you will be home using the internet or other media wonders of today to keep abreast of General Conference. And if you’re at home with the fam, by all means make yourself as comfy as possible. On Saturday, PJ’s are perfectly acceptable. Here’s what the well-dressed Mormon will be wearing if they’re viewing at home.
If there’s too much noise around the house, head on over to your local meetinghouse for the broadcast. Saturday’s dress is a little more relaxed than Sunday’s. Women, that means skirts rather than dresses or suits. And denim is acceptable, but NEVER pants. Men, no suit coat. Throw on a pair of slacks, but don’t forgo the white shirt and tie.
Now, if you’re heading on over to the Conference Center on Saturday, you know what you have to do. The weekend will cut you no slack. For women, it’s full Sunday dress, complete with hosiery. Cool weather will allow you to wear these chic opaque tights. For comfort, you’ll see lots of floral print dresses. But since it’s Saturday, you can still give it a little bit of a casual twist. For men, get out that Sunday suit, white shirt and tie again.
There’s going to be a lot of diversity in our home crowd on Sunday. For some, the pajama casual will still be the order of the day. But since it’s the Sabbath, many families will want to dress the part even when at home. Moms, try a cozy housedress and put your girls in jumpers. Dads, wear your loosest slacks and a button-down shirt. For once, you can break out the colored one!
For Sunday at the chapel, regular Sunday dress code applies. Frilly dresses for little girls, skirts and modest tops for teens, dresses and skirt suits for women. No flip-flops!! For males of all ages, you guessed it, a white shirt and tie, and preferably a full suit.
Finally, we have the Sunday Conference Center-goer. Remember for this session you are dressing for success. Put your boys and girls in their best Sunday clothing. Teen girls should be extremely modest, with no cleavage, shoulders, or legs above the knee revealed. All priesthood holders must wear the standard outfit. Dark suit, white shirt, dark socks and shoes, conservative ties. If you must express your individuality, it is acceptable to wear a pair of shades around Temple Square before entering the building. Women, in order to be the perfect picture of Relief Society, you should wear a business suit, but give it a feminine touch. Suits in bright colors will make you look like you are ready to give the next talk in the Conference Center!
Mormon Matters hopes this post has been helpful for our Conference-goers. Let us know what you were wearing this weekend!
