Clothing are basic items worn around the human body. Clothing is generally made of woven textiles or natural fibres but over the years has also come to include clothing made from animal skins or other similar thin layers of synthetic materials put together. The wearing of clothes is usually confined to humans and is an intrinsic part of all human cultures. It has been estimated that the average human being covers up approximately half of their body in terms of covering and protecting themselves. There are many different types of clothing.
Some people will wear simple cloth knitted jumpers, while others will wear clothes that cover their entire bodies. Women in certain cultures will wear only knitted clothing, while men will wear clothing that has been tailored to their body shape and style. Clothing is considered to be feminine in many parts of the world, especially Africa and Asia, where it is considered a basic necessity. Clothes are often considered to have an impact on one’s personal power and freedom. A person who is not dressed in the proper clothing can be easily manipulated by others, as they may feel they cannot defend or protect themselves.
Wearing the correct clothing means you are able to communicate and socialize with others in a way that you would not normally be able to. For example, certain religions consider clothing optional while others consider it essential to be clothed properly for reasons of modesty. The most common types of clothing worn by humans are the type of clothing known as pants, shirt, outerwear, and lingerie. Pants are commonly worn as everyday clothing.
In the United States of America, these types of clothing are generally referred to as jeans. Jogging pants are the closest we can get to a pair of leggings; these are almost always white or have some white streaks, and are considered to be an acceptable form of exercise clothing. Close-fitting or tight fitting pants are generally considered to be a form of pantyhose, and are used for exercise and protection by athletes, while sheer lingerie is only worn during sleep.
