In Chinese, the measure words to describe clothes sometimes confuses the beginners, normally in Chinese we use “件 (jiàn)” to describe the top parts of clothing, such as jackets, sweaters, etc. We use “条 (tiáo)” to describe the clothes for the lower part of one’s body, such as trousers, skirts, etc. Besides these, when we want to describe a set of clothes including jackets and pants, we use the word “套 (tào).”

Nǐ zhè jiàn wàitào hěn hǎo kàn!
