She is not afraid of the snow for her household, for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She makes coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple (Proverbs 31:21–22). 

This passage reflects the outward manifestations of a godly woman’s heart. A godly woman does not dress in public in ways ungodly, suggestive, slovenly, or slipshod. Her outer adornment reflects her inner demeanor. 

She girds herself with strength and makes her arms strong (Proverbs 31:17). 

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future (Proverbs 31:25). 

Her appearance and dress reflect internal decorum, discipline, and dignity, meaning she gives thought and cares to the occasion and with a view of her husband’s position. She’s not distractive nor does she fight for the limelight. 

Because she is habitually and characteristically industrious, wise, understanding, giving, and a good steward of their resources, fine clothing is affordable and an appropriate priority. Such sensitivities telegraph the evidence of God’s blessings and grace bestowed as a reward for faithfulness, selflessness, and the care of others who are less fortunate. She has class.
