“You can, on the practical side, be looking at things like minimalism [and] minimalist wardrobe. I’ve got something like five shirts and my black skirt, and I’m good to go! On the spiritual side, for plain dress, you can look at parts in the Bible that say not to dress ostentatiously, basically. Traditionally, Quakers have had that as sort of a rule; our own Books of Discipline would say to dress plainly.”

—Mackenzie Morgan, member of Adelphi (Md.) Meeting
