I like sports clothes
Two question: 1) What does "over" mean in the sentence "on over your clothes to go out in winter"? and 2) What does "smart" mean in the sentence " A smart top with buttons is called a"?.
Thank you.

Hi miracle1. For your first question, I'm going to put a / in the sentence so you can see the units.

  • You put a coat on / over your clothes / to go out in winter.

Does that help to make sense of it? Here, 'over your clothes' means 'on top of your clothes'. 'On' is part of the verb 'put on (clothes)'.

For your second question, in this sentence 'smart' means it looks clean, neat and makes a good impression on other people. So, for example, most office workers wear smart clothes. :)

Does that help?

I usually wear dresses, T-shirts and skirts. I don't like very much wearing trainers but I use it for doing physical exercises. I like high heels too.

Hi asharshah, 
Sneakers are the American English word for trainers (training/sports shoes).

I like wearing jeans and shirt for school. When I go on picnic, I like wearing shorts and T-shirt. They're very comfortable, suitable for activities
