Clothing Names in Hindi for English Readers

I am a native Hindi speaker from India. I like to share and explore new things on the internet.

Clothing is a true reflection of an individual's personality, and we use different kinds of clothes in different seasons. Here we will discuss the names of some basic clothing items in the Hindi language. There are some clothes that have an English name but have no word in Hindi; such terms have been excluded. Originally the Hindi is written in Devnagari script but the Hindi names for the clothing items in this article have also been provided in the Roman script for the ease of understanding of English readers.
