He "was wearing" blue jeans and a coat of the same material. He also "wore" heavy work boots and an old black cowboy hat.
What is the difference between "was wearing" and "wore" in the above sentences? Thanks.

None. The writer (who was the writer, by the way?) wanted to avoid the repetition of 'was wearing'.
