Tell me about type of clothes in your country?

We have many different races in my country. That is the reason why there are many type of clothes in my country. Chinese ladies prefer to wear red “chiongsam”. It is very beautiful. For Indian ladies, they wear “sari”. It is fantastic too. For Malay man they like to ware “baju melayu’ and for Malay ladies they look awesome if they wear “baju kurung”. Because the whether in my country is hot, many people like to wear “ pelikat” at night.”Pelikat” is looks like a skirt but can be wear by a lady or man.

My take on this is:

We have many different races in my country. This is the reason [delete "why"] there are many types of clothes in my country. Chinese ladies prefer to wear red “chiongsam”. It is very beautiful. [delete "for"] Indian ladies [delete "they"] wear “sari” which are fantastic too. [delete "For"] Malay men [delete "they"] like to wear “baju melayu’ and [delete "for"] Malay women [delete "they"] look awesome if they wear “baju kurung”. Because the weather in my country is hot, many people like to wear “ pelikat” at night. ”Pelikat” [delete "is"] looks like a skirt but can be worn by both men and women.

This would make it read as follows:

I hope that helps. ;-)

In the UK, we have so many different styles co-existing that it is very hard to draw any generalisations about what people wear. The one thing you almost never, make that never, see is the traditional City Gent in a black suit, bowler hat, pink newspaper and umbrella. ;-)
