When someone dresses, they put on their clothes. This use of dress occurs mainly in stories.

In conversation and in less formal writing, you don't usually say that someone 'dresses'. You say that they get dressed.

If you say that someone dresses in a particular way, you mean that they usually wear clothes of a particular type.

2. 'dressed in'

If you want to describe someone's clothes on a particular occasion, you can say that they are dressed in something.

When a person's clothes are all the same colour, you can say that they are dressed in that colour.

3. 'dress up'

If you dress up, you put on different clothes so that you look smarter than usual. People dress up in order to go, for example, to a wedding or to an interview for a new job.

Dress

A term sometimes used to describe the work necessary to prepare an animal carcass for human consumption. It was most often applied to chickens, but was sometimes used when referring to hogs. It was not, for example, unusual for someone to look at a hog and say, “I think it will dress out at about XXX pounds,” meaning that, after butchering, they expected the carcass to weigh about XXX pounds.
