What is This Called? - Wardrobe
A collection of clothes is referred to as a wardrobe. A way to use this word in a sentence is, "She was looking for a special dress to add to her wardrobe". You can also add accessory items, such as belts or purses to a person's wardrobe, as we often use the word to include all items of apparel. A wardrobe
can also be a free standing structure that holds clothes, such as an armoire
A wardrobe can be both a collection of clothes
or the closet that holds them.
Items of a persons wardrobe include:
Blouse or Top (women only) or a shirt
Skirt (for women) or pants
Dress (women only)-a dress is all one piece
Dress can be used as a verb, as in,it's time to get dressed
When referring to general items, we just use the termclothes,
as when we say, I have to pick up my clothes from the dry cleaners
While clothes may be referred to as items of dress
, we don't say,I have to go get my dress,
unless you are actually referring to a woman's dress, like the one in the picture below. If in doubt, simply use the wordclothes
and you should be fine, as in,I have to go get my clothes.
The termitems of dress
can be changed toitems of clothing
and still retain its meaning.

Photo 2: A blouse is fancier than both a top and t-shirt or polo shirt
Photo 3: A T-shirt used be called an undershirt, as it was a solid color such as white, made of a stretchy material and was worn under a man's dress shirt (also called a button-up, button-down, or button-front shirt-not shown) Nowadays, it is found in many vibrant colors, sometimes more than one color and often has a picture, logo or phrase on the front or back.
Photo 4: This shirt is commonly called a "Polo shirt" due to the company that made them popular, but the actual term for this style of shirt is atab front shirt.
The white part in this photo is called a collar and is the name used for many types of clothing for the part that surrounds the neck.
