In hot weather, white or light coloured clothes suit better, because they reflect the heat and keep the body cool, whereas black clothes retain heat. During summer, clothes made of cotton are more comfortable. Cotton clothes allow the body heat to escape. People wear loose clothes to keep cool. Loose clothes allow air to circulate below the fabric. Thus, loose clothes are more suited during summer than tight fitting clothes. Hence, summer wear should be breathable, light-coloured and loose fitting rather than dark and tight fitting.
In cold weather, warm and thick clothes should be worn. A wool base layer helps maintain body temperature at a comfortable level in either cool or warm conditions. So, woollen garments are suitable for cold weather.
As wool is a very good insulator and a poor conductor of heat, it can absorb moisture without becoming wet. Woollen clothes keep the body warm and protect from the cold winds.
Also, the air trapped between the woollen fibres prevents the flow of heat from the body to the cold surrounding. It also prevents the cold air from coming in contact with the body. Woollen garments have excellent shape retention because of the crimp in the fibres. The crimp creates many tiny air pockets that trap the warm air of the body or form a sort of insulation from the external air. This insulating barrier of air pockets protects from the cold winds. Sweaters, mufflers, cardigans and woollen garments give protection from winter. Thus, dark, thick, woollen garments are suitable during winter.
