1. vêtements
Clothing, vêtements.
I wear clothing. Je porte des vêtements. Hopefully I do.
2. chemise
Next chemise, shirt.
So you should wear a nice shirt with a suit. Il faut porter une jolie chemise avec un costume. And be all fancy.
3. chapeau
Chapeau, hat.
Some people say in French that you can have a hat head, avoir une t êt e à chapeau. which means you can wear hat easily and it will look nice on you.
A top hat, un chapeau haut de forme. That’s so fancy.
To wear a hat when it’s cold. Porter un chapeau quand il fait froid .
4. imperméable
Imperméable. Raincoat. It’s raining today here.
So don’t forget the raincoat N'oubliez pas votre imperméable.
Imperméable is also waterproof in French. So when some thing is imperméable, it means its waterproof.

A yellow raincoat. Un imperméable jaune. it’s so cliche.

Qu'est-ce tu portes quand tu te couches -- pajamas ou lingerie? Je pense que "lingerie" ce mot-là c'est français.

Je porte des vêtements d'une cycliste maintenant. En anglais, on dit "a kit" avec une chemise avec des poches sur le dos et avec des shorts très serrés. Aussi, mes chaussures sont noires avec des "clips" qui accroche aux pedales. Et bien sûr, je porte une casque.

I am wearing a cyclists clothes now. In English, we say a kit, with a shirt with pockets on the back and with very tight shorts. Also, my shoes are black with clips that attach to the pedals. And of course I wear a helmet.
