Apparel Defined | True Meaning Variables | Perspective
Apparel: Jackets, shoes, dresses, or in the more prudish sense of the word, apparel could be defined as Garment, Raiment, Garb, Costume, Hosiery, or Outfit. And from there the definition(s) of that word can go just about anywhere, ending up everywhere. It could define clothing as to clothe or dress, a covering to adorn or embellish, or a covering of adornment to adorn one’s self.
You could be more main stream about it and simply call it clothing, or better yet, threads. We could expand that term (if we wanted to get a little confronting) and define it as outerwear, underwear, or just plain “wear”. Garments if we so choose. We could settle and agree it is anything that decorates our outer appearance or disguises our superficial aspect of how we want to present ourselves.
We could get a little Ecclesiastical about it, showing our pious side, and simply say it’s a piece of oblong embroidery, a “vestment” on the amice- whatever that means! What could really be fun is if we get a bit nautical in defining it. In that sense, apparel could be sails or masts that dress the yacht we try convincing others we have a personal vesting or ties of some kind to impress that someone special we know.
Whatever it is, whatever apparel means to you, I hope it’s all fun! I hope you enjoy the hunt for that dazzling new dress, the hottest looking jacket, and of course, those new pair of shoes you can’t go without (which some would define as accessories).
Who knows, maybe while perusing this site, you discover something you never knew was out there before. Be it here on this site, or another, the name of the game is always…shopping, and having fun at it! And with that, let me wish you…HAPPY HUNTING!
