People in the sahara desert wear, long woollen robes that cover their whole body. Along with heavy soaled shoes to protect their feet from the hot sand.  They also wear turbans on their head to protect it from the hot blazing sun. I only know this because I am doing a geography project on the sahara desert and have just read all about it.

In the Sahara desert you have to wear loose clothing because it is really hot and you cannot wear tight clothing because it will make you hot and sweaty. The loose clothing gives your skin some room to aerate your clothes and allow your skin to breathe, so that you do not suffer too much in the hot weather.

To protect the head the citizens in the Sahara desert wear scarves around their head. Also you need some decent insulating foot wear to prevent burning from the hot sand.

Desert people tend to wear loose fitting light colored clothes with some sort of headdress. The light flowing garment keeps the sun off of their skin, and allows the skin to breathe, and the headdress keeps the sun off of their heads. They also wear something to put over their mouths and noses, to wear during desert storms...*p

They wear a head scarf called a turag. It covers their eyes, so that people can't see in, but they can see out. That keeps the sand from coming in.
They wear lots of clothes, and no part of their body shows. But it is loosely woven, so that they stay cool.

A turban, a cloak, baggy pants and shirt, I don't know what shoes they where, but thats all I know.
The reason they where turbans is because the multiple layers keep your head from being sun-burned, also the excess cloth can be used as a face cover to keep you from inhaling debree in the air, the cloak keeps you warm during the cold desert nights and keeps your back from being sun-burned.

To avoid the heat people in deserts wear long flowing robes to protect their skin from the sun and to allow air to come through. The clothes are loose to prevent quick dehydration in the severely dry air. Veils protects our face and mouth to keep us living through the dangerous sandstorms. Desert people wear foot wear suitable to prevent heat and sand to coming in our feet for this may cause a severe injury

Ideally, it is preferred that you wear loose clothing but you need to make sure that it covers your entire body and not just half of it. Since the heat in intense during the day, if you don't cover your body properly there is a chance of getting a horrible sunburn. The people over there prefer thin clothing which is porous when compared to thick clothes like a sweater and joggers mainly for 2 reasons. The first being the obvious one, it's hot. The second one is that the thin clothing allows their skin to aerate in the right manner. Since their body is mostly covered at all times, it is likely that they won't get the necessary vitamins because of it and this helps them.

So if you are planning a journey to the Sahara, I would advise you to ditch clothes made of woollen or something like joggers, sarees, track pants, shorts, sweaters, sweatshirts and similar clothing items and get scarves and sunscreen so that you can stay in a good condition.

I hope this helps everyone.

They where light weighted loose clothes to keep them cool in the hot weather, white is good to where because it reflects heat.
