English Grammar Lesson – Phrasal Verbs related to clothing. ( Free English Lessons)


Hi everyone, I am Niharika and thanks for
clicking. well in today’s lesson we are gonna look at phrasal verbs related to clothing. Do you love clothes?Well I totally love clothes , I am a girl, so yes I do love clothes. Well
In English , I have observed that many people especially when they have to to talk about
clothing the only two verbs that they end up using are wear and remove. I will wear
my red shirt. I removed my red shirt. let me wear my best shoes, so it’s just wear and
remove, that’s about it , but when you are learning English wouldn’t it be better to
learn new words? or new phrases that you can use related to clothing, well that’s what
we are gonna learn in today’s lesson. We are gonna look at some phrasal verbs that would
help you to talk about wearing clothes and removing them. So let’s get started , the
first one is ‘Dress up’ now dress up it means to wear the best dress or to just dress up
the best, now probably you have a date tonight , Hey! you have a date tonight, and you really
wanna dress up very well, you want to wear your best dress or if you are a guy you really
wanna look good, you wanna wear your best blue shirt that you have. So, rather than
saying – I am gonna wear my blue shirt or I am gonna wear a nice dress, use the phrasal
verb dress up. I am gonna dress up really well for the date tonight, okay. Dress up
means to wear your best , okay, to wear the best clothing. The next one ‘Have on’, have
one again means to wear a piece of clothing, so rather than saying, hey! we are wearing
the same clothes or the same colour, use the phrase have on , well how would you use that?
Oh! my God we have the same shirt on or we have the same colour shirt on, okay, which
means that we are wearing the same piece of clothing, alright. The next one ‘Slip on’
, slip on, well this is a phrasal verb that you can use to wear a piece of clothing very
easy, you know there are piece of clothings that you use it or you can wear it very easily,
like a piece of dress, okay. It’s very easy to slip into a piece of dress. So you can
use the phrasal verb slip on to wear something easily, like your flip flops, so this can
be for clothes, this can also be for accessories and it can be also used for shoes, so as I
mentioned wearing flip flops, it’s very easy to slip on flip flops, right? You just, probably
you are at the beach – Okay hang on, let me slip on my flip flops, because you can wear
flip flops very easily, so rather than saying – i am gonna wear my flip flops, you can say
– I am gonna slip on my flip flops and then let’s go to the beach. Then the next one – ‘Try
on’ well try on is used especially when you go shopping. women you can definitely use
this, because women love shopping , now when you go to a store and probably you like something,
maybe some shoes or probably a piece of dress or maybe a nice tank top and before you buy
it, before you put in a lot of money to buy that dress, why don’t you try it on. So, how
would you do that? well you go to a trial room and see if it fits you well, see if it
suits you , so before you buy something , you try on, so try on can be used to wear something
to see if it fits you or to see if it suits you. So, I am gonna try on this black shirt,
maybe I love this black shirt and I wanna see how it fits me and if it looks good on
me, so I am gonna try on. The next one ‘kick off’ , now kick off this phrasal verb is specifically
used for shoes, okay and it means to remove your shoes quickly, so like, Oh! my God, last
night I was so exhausted, I kicked off my shoes and I was off to bed. So, which means
I quickly removed my shoes , so rather than saying I quickly removed my shoes, well I
am using the phrasal verb , I kicked off my shoes, which means that I quickly removed
my shoes, but remember this phrasal verb can be only used specifically for shoes. The next
one ‘Throw on’, now throw on is pretty similar to kick off but throw on is used for clothes,
but not to remove your clothes but to wear them, so to wear something quickly, like in
the morning yo are too busy getting ready, you have to rush to work , so I just throw
on a dress and I leave for work. So throw on is to put an item of clothing quickly,
so to wear something not to remove, remember that. The next one ‘ Wrap up’ , wrap up you
know at times when you step out and you realize it’s a little chilli , you thought that it
was not cold but yes it is a little chilli and you are just wearing a tank top and you
feel a little cold, so you wrap up yourself with a piece of clothing, right? So to wrap
up is to cover yourself, you go to a movie theatre and you start feeling a little cold
because of the air conditioner , you start feeling a little cold and then you are like
– I wish I could have got something to wrap up myself , okay so it means that I wish I
would have got a piece of clothing to cover myself up. And then the last one ‘Put on’
, put on is used to wear something, again as I mentioned in the start that all the English
speakers, many of the English speakers only end up using wear and remove when it comes
to talking about clothing, but you know then there is another phrasal verb that you can
use when you tend to say that I am gonna wear a red shirt, so rather than saying – I am
gonna wear a red shirt, I am gonna put on a red shirt. I am gonna put on these black
shoes. I am gonna put on my earrings, okay. So it actually means that you gonna wear them,
okay. So these are the phrasal verbs related to clothing , start using them if you are
not, avoid using the verbs wear and remove not everything can be worn , not everything
can be removed , use this trust me you would be able to speak fluently, I will be back
with a new lesson, till then you take care and have a great day.
