Topic: Types of Clothes that suitable for our climates.


Nigeria is a tropical country. It has two different climates. Sometimes, the weather may be hot as we have during the dry season or very cold as in the rainy and harmattan seasons . Therefore, we must wear clothes that suit these different climatic conditions.


In cold weather, people are advised to wear thick and heavy clothes such as jackets, coats , cardigans, sweaters, etc. This is necessary because we need thick clothes to keep us extra warm . Keeping warm at this period prevents respiratory infections like common cold , catarrh,cough , pneumonia, etc.


In the hot season, people need to wear light cotton clothes because of the heat in the environment. This absorbs sweat easily and allows fresh air to the body. Wearing light clothing does not mean we should exposed our body. It means to dress in a way that will generate less heat.


Some professions need particular clothing. Examples of such professions are medical personnel, lawyers , nurses, police, soldiers, etc. Their clothes show who they are and what they do . They must wear their uniforms whether the weather is cold or hot.
