Look to the Bible to answer this! Essentially, before Adam and Eve sinned by eating the forbidden fruit, they were in a perfectly harmonious relationship with God. They walked among him in the garden and there was no flaw, no disconnect between man and God. They lived in complete confidence of God's everlasting, unconditional love. Once they sinned, the perfect union was broken. Their complete security was in jeopardy because they now were able to experience fear and separation. And thus, they felt naked. Exposed. Vulnerable. Guilty. Transparent. When they were in harmony with their creator they were so unbelievably confident because their worth came from how their maker viewed them. So of course they wouldn't notice! How lovely to be naked and not have any embarrassment. So their first reaction was to clothe themselves and cover up their mistake from God. A great book that has a chapter which explains this topic is "Searching for God Knows What" by Donald Miller. Its very relatable and easy to follow even if youre not a Christian but just want to learn more. Keep pursuing this, Anne.

Excellent answer, Anne. That is so true.
