English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. clothing

    Clothing denotes the entire covering of the body, taken as a whole; clothes and garments view it as composed of separate parts. Clothes, clothing, and garments may be used of inner or outer covering; all the other words in the list (with possible rare exceptions in the case of raiment) refer to the outer garments. Array, raiment, and vesture are archaic or poetic; so, too, is habit, except in technical use to denote a lady's riding-dress. The word vestments is now rare, except in ecclesiastical use. Apparel and attire are most frequently used of somewhat complete and elegant outer clothing, tho Shakespeare speaks of "poor and mean attire." Dress may be used, specifically, for a woman's gown, and in that sense may be either rich or shabby; but in the general sense it denotes outer clothing which is meant to be elegant, complete, and appropriate to some social or public occasion; as, full dress, court dress, evening dress, etc. Dress has now largely displaced apparel and attire. Garb denotes the clothing characteristic of some class, profession, or the like; as, the garb of a priest. Costume is chiefly used for that which befits an assumed character; as, a theatrical costume; we sometimes speak of a national costume, etc.

How to use clothing in a sentence?

  1. Chrissy Teigen:

    The most uncomfortable I’ve ever been on set was having to model coats, i am the most comfortable in my own skin, literally, just my own skin. I don’t know what it is, but I think sometimes pieces of clothing can be unflattering… I actually am better in less clothing. It’s a blessing and a curse.

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    True love is a lifeline i.e. it is something essential for continued existence of the humanity. Yes! without true love the world can never and will never know or have peace at all. Besides that, without true love there can't be and there won't be any lasting marriage or any other relationship right here or out there. In other words, true love is absolutely essential just like money, food, water, shelter and clothing. Thus, you've got to showcase or portray true love to all and sundry wherever you find yourself, in order to make the world a better place. ~Emeasoba George.

  3. Benji Backer:

    He started to say that climate change is real, which is a huge difference from where he's been before, people on both sides say I'm a wolf in sheep's clothing. But if he changed his tune and said tomorrow,' I want a big climate change policy,' I will work with anybody, whether Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or President Trump's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Donald Trump.

  4. The ASA:

    We understood that Urban Outfitters’ target market was young people and considered that using a noticeably underweight model was likely to impress upon that audience that the image was representative of the people who might wear Urban Outfitters’ clothing, and as being something to aspire to, we therefore concluded that the ad was irresponsible.

  5. Onesimo Garcia:

    It was snowing so bad, we had no proper clothing for the snow.
