how religion affects clothes

Some religions expect people to dress modestly. However, the definitions of "modesty" vary. In Islam, women's dress varies from a simple scarf to cover the hair to completely covering all parts of the body. In Christianity, for instance, Amish women wear long skirts and long sleeves, and wear a simple cap on their heads. All Amish people eschew zippers and use bottons to fasten their clothing.
