Clothing objects worn around the human body. Clothing is generally composed of textiles or natural fibers but over the years has also come to include clothing made out of animal skins or other rather delicate sheets of various materials fitted together. Clothing, like all other things, have undergone many changes and improvements over the centuries. It has been through the efforts of humans that clothing developed from the simple cloth worn by hunters and fishermen to the durable fabrics used by early civilizations.
The wearing of clothes is most commonly associated with human beings, and is often considered a social activity. Throughout most of human history, the wearing of clothes has been seen as an essential aspect of one’s survival. In some cultures, clothing has even been seen as a status indicator, a sign of the person’s social position in society. Clothes can either be utilitarian, meaning that they serve the basic purpose of protecting the body, or designer, which often entails marketing a product designed to make a designer look good.
Historically, clothing was designed for two main purposes: practicality and ornamentation. The clothes that people wore could either provide comfort and necessary protection or serve as a sign of wealth and social status. During ancient times, clothing was made out of fabric scraps left over from the construction of houses and palaces. This fabric was typically sewn together using scraps of wool from animals and plants and was referred to as rags. These rags were tied together to create different articles of clothing and were hung up.
A basic piece of clothing during medieval times was the shirt. The shirt was a long piece of cloth that was either worn over a suit or plain pants. The main article of clothing during this time period was the jilbab, which was a loose robe that came in many colors, designs, and patterns. Men were also expected to wear a face veil called a drama, which was a head scarf that kept their heads covered during the hot days of the year. Women were also expected to wear full suits consisting of skirts, shirts, pants, jackets, or coats.
In modern day western fashion, jeans have taken over from being the main article of clothing. Jodhpurs, which is like a padded sleeve, is a main item of clothing found in the closet of most women. As time has progressed, other articles of clothing such as skirts and blouses have replaced the jodhpurs as the main piece of clothing in western fashion. However, some women still prefer to wear clothes made from textiles.
There are many different styles of textiles used in western fashion. Some of the most common styles include velvet, cotton, and silk. Although most of the clothes are made from silk, cotton, and velvet, these three textiles have gained popularity due to the low cost of production. Textiles are woven and can be dyed to match other colors in a variety of styles. The most popular styles of textiles that can be seen in clothing include denim, rayon, cotton, flannel, fleece, silk, and wool
