dress

Clothing worn for utility as well as for decoration. The biblical terms for various types of garb are general and exchangeable in translation, so it is difficult to obtain accurate descriptions of dress from the texts themselves. Artistic representations from the ancient Near East prove more useful, and archaeologists have uncovered such representations from many periods.
