African DressOne of the nice things about African clothes is that they are traditionally comfortable and very easy to work and move around in. The layers may seem surprising considering the warm climate of the areas where they come from but the layers can actually help protect people against exposure and depending on how they are worn can actually help trap cool air and keep you more comfortable. Often, traditional clothes include a long robe or shirt that may be worn by both men and women. There may be other pieces of clothing such as head wraps, shawls, trousers or long skirts. Women’s clothing is often cut to accentuate a full figure. One example of this is a piece of clothing known as a Queen dress.
