Here are some words to help you talk about your wardrobe!
Je porte... - I wear...
Il porte / elle porte... - He / she wears...
un pull - a jumper
une chemise - a shirt
un chapeau - a hat
une jupe - a skirt
un manteau - a coat
une écharpe - a scarf
In French, 'trousers' are singular - un pantalon. So are some other items of clothing:
un pantalon - trousers
un short - shorts
un slip - pants
un pyjama - pyjamas
To say 'some' in French, you use des:
des gants - some gloves
des lunettes de soleil - some sunglasses
des bottes - some boots
des chaussures - some shoes
To make a sentence NEGATIVE (to say you haven't got something or don't wear something) you just put ne in front of the verb and pas after it. So je porte (I wear) becomes je ne porte pas (I don't wear).
You also have to add de.
Je ne porte pas de pull. - I don't / I'm not wearing a jumper.
Je ne porte pas des chaussures. - I don't / I'm not wearing shoes.
DID YOU KNOW ... The verb you use to say you wear something – porter - also means 'to carry' so you can say je porte un pull (I wear a jumper) but also je porte un parapluie (I carry an umbrella)!
Je porte un pull. - I wear a jumper.
Je porte un parapluie. - I carry an umbrella.
