One indisputable fact about a person from royalty is that their easily identifiable from the way they dress. In traditional societies, dressing is a mark of identification and symbols of honour to anyone from a royal family. in the same vein, children of God are expected to show they belong to the King of kings and honour Him through their dressing and appearance.

Importance of clothing or dressing
- Clothing was invented by God to cover our bodies. Genesis 3:21.
- Our clothing is to prevent confusion.
Men and women are different. God created the two genders for specific roles, specific purposes and with specific characteristics. Part of the reason for clothing is so that men will look like men, and women will look like women. Deuteronomy 22:5
