How do boots serve to keep toes warm on the hot summer days they are worn? It must be something more than that.December 2, 2012 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #911215HealthParticipant
dolphina -“Please clarify the current rules of tznius (circa 2012): Is it assur to wear clothing that makes one look attractive? Is one supposed to walk into a clothing store and fine the most ill-fitting/ugly thing to wear that is loose and covers knees/elbows/clavicle? The line of what is/is not permitted isn’t clear to me, that’s why I ask.
Also, at what temperature is it permitted to wear boots?”
Please don’t learn Orthodox Judaism from the posters here.
As far as I’m concerned you can wear boots any time of the year.
Women are allowed to wear clothes for fashion. It only becomes a problem when the fashion is at an extreme. If a good percentage of Frum women are doing it -it probably isn’t extreme. If it’s the latest fashion out of Pari’ and it’s not common in the Frum circles (yet) then this could be a problem of Tznius.
“And what is wrong with being into the latest fashion, if you’re covered up where you’re supposed to be?”
Simple, because you’ll stand out and this isn’t Tznius to stand out amongst other Frum women.December 2, 2012 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #911216shmendrickMember
Women build Jewish homes. At construction sites boots are required. Also hard hats.December 4, 2012 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #911218rockerMember

rocker: what point are you trying to prove?
These women really went out of their way to attract a man’s attention. A woman who is wearing boots is most likely not having those intentions.December 6, 2012 2:28 am at 2:28 am #911222farrocksMember
Dressing “attractively” is designed to “attract”.December 6, 2012 3:01 am at 3:01 am #911223interjectionParticipant
A woman’s self esteem is largely dependent on how she perceives her looks. A woman is allowed to dress pretty. To dress attractively is different than to dress “attractingly” (if there is such a word). The women the Gemara refers to would dress specifically to attract men and their only intentions were lustful.December 6, 2012 5:37 am at 5:37 am #911224HealthParticipant

Even if you’re right -maybe they are trying to attract other women?!? Why is everything (almost everything) in our generation about how women aren’t Tznius?December 6, 2012 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #911225OneOfManyParticipant
