Isn’t the way a woman carries herself along with her personality, more important than what she wears?
Exactly, but the reality is that clothing is much of a social phenomenon. In Islam, the function of clothing must be both protection and beautification, but not seduction. Thus, to make sure a female’s personality and profession is acknowledged, her body (as the first point of contact) must be covered in a decent way, or else, her personality will be concealed by her body.
