    such / such a

    What is the different between such and such a? What is the usage of such and such a?

    here is the example:

    She was wearing ___________ ( such / such a ) beautiful clothes that I envied her.


    Thank you.

    Re: such / such a

    Clothes' is plural, so you can't have 'such a'.

    Re: such / such a

    If the question changes to ' She was wearing _______ beautiful dress that I envied her. ' 'dress' is singular, which answer will be more suitable ( such / such a )?
