Nairobi - Dressing is a fundamental aspect of humanity. It has been used to define events, and even individuals and offices. This has placed great weight on the subject albeit being talked about by fewer and fewer people each day.
Religious leaders dress in robes and cloaks that emanate a sense of holiness and respect towards their work and who they serve.
These long garments are associated with purity and grace. Whenever a religious leader is spotted in the cloaks and gowns the public creates a perception they clearly separates them from ordinary persons.
Professionals are fond of dressing in suits. With such a formal dress code, the public tends to have a perception that these professionals are serious and focused persons. In addition, ambition, is portrayed through the sharpness of their looks.
On social levels, people dress differently.
However, the mode of dressing still portrays a certain picture.
Sagging pants for men is a clear indication of loose morals even though many argue that it is fashionable. When men wear earrings and plait their hair, they are perceived to be of weird character by most people.

Ladies over the years have embraced changing fashion with both arms.
Currently, the trend has evolved into tight clothing that hug every part of the body and if not, then they done loose dresses that are extremely short.
These short dresses are commonly referred to as summer dresses if they happen to be loose and flowery in print.
Nonetheless, if the dress is short and body hugging, then they refer to them as evening dresses.
Despite all being fashion trends and very attractive to some people, respect is a very crucial element of order in society.
Not everybody will embrace some dress codes and as a result, we need to draw some boundaries.
Ladies need to know that not everyone in this nation will freely and openly accept their dress code and that no matter how much freedom they have, rights are overlapped by duties.
Where your right stops, my duty starts.
Indecency in dressing should not be associated with the tagline 'my dress my choice'.
All in all, violently stripping a woman is barbaric and uncouth. Men who participate in such an act should face the full wrath of the law. Two wrongs will never make a right.
