Costume

The main purpose of clothing is to protect people from the climate which dominates their lives. Mainly, this means protection from cold. Few people live in regions where it is so hot all the time that they have no need for clothing to keep them warm. If you wish to make design your own costume - for this purpose there are many specialized sites. For example, such as this.

Clothing also protects people against heat, rain, snow and dust. For example, tropical farmers, although scantily clad, often wear large hats to protect them against both sun and rain. The flowing robes of the Sahara's wandering Arabs not only give protection against the burning sun of the day and the chilling cold of night, but also against the sudden merciless dust storms. These would flay the skin of any desert-dweller foolish enough not to protect his whole body by clothing.

Although about half of the world's people now wear Western dress, there is much variation in the clothing worn by other people. Apart from climatic reasons, variations exist from place to place according to what materials are available, to habit and customs and to fashion. The central Asian herdsman wears leather or wool from his animals. The Indian woman who migrates to a cold climate may still wear her silk sari rather than a woolen dress. Most Muslim women wear long robes and veils because custom decrees that their faces, hair, arms and legs should be hidden from the sight of strange men. In 1970, mini-skirted girls preferred to suffer rather than to be out of fashion in London and New York. Now any suits are accessible. For example Cleopatra fancy dress costume.

Some people wear special clothing that shows their rank or job. British noblemen sometimes wear ermine robes and coronets. Policemen, sailors, nurses and firemen wear uniforms. Without highly specialized clothing, welders, skiers, divers and astronauts might suffer injury or death. In most parts of the world, people's dress has changed greatly over hundreds of years. But some people still wear 'national costume' for special occasions, recalling the traditional - now picturesque - dress that their ancestors wore.
