Loose fitting clothing is more comfortable and stylish. If you have skin problems, you might need to take further care when selecting clothing. Skin problems can be caused by conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, deprived circulation, reduced sensation, or allergies to certain chemicals.
All kind of detergent can also irritate sensitive skin, so make a note of which brands or types have caused a reaction in the past.

If you have sensitive skin or a skin condition, you may know what types of materials work best for you. Commonly, natural fibres like cotton, linen and silk will feel soft and smooth against your skin.
Fabrics that are flexible and spring when you move are often more comfortable than harder fabrics, especially if you sit for long periods. Some textile dyes can cause allergies. In the dyeing process the dyes bind to the fibres, and sometimes excess colour can be released and come into contact with skin. Some clothing manufacturers are now using 100% organic, unbleached cotton and silk, linen with natural dyes, which may be more suitable if you have an allergy to textile dyes.

Wearing a few lighter weight garments is likely to be warmer and more comfortable than a heavy coat. (Source: http://www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/scenario.php?csid=396)
