Throughout history people have worn clothes for many different reasons. (Some just to cover their bodies and others for decoration.) Even in cold or hot climates more people are more interested in decorating their bodies rather than protecting or covering their bodies. No one knows why people wore clothing at first but researchers believe people wore clothing more that 100,000 years ago. People many years ago used clothing as a way of protecting or covering their bodies and these years people use clothing for communication or for self confidence.
