What is the capital of Tunisia?

“habit, vêtement, tenue” What is the difference between these synonyms?

“Habits” and “vêtements” have the exact same meaning to me. I’d say that “vêtements” sounds maybe a bit more formal than “habits” but both are used fairly commonly.

“Tenue” on the other hand has a slightly different meaning : it is used to refer to an ensemble. A “tenue” is the sum of the “vêtements” that you are wearing (trousers and a shirt is a “tenue” or a skirt, tights and a blouse…). It is mostly used to refer to the set of clothes for a specific event.

“J’ai trouvé une tenue pour la soirée.”

“Tenue” is a set of clothes with a specific purpose: tenue de soirée, tenue de combat, tenue de travail, tenue de ski/tennis…

“habits” is mostly used for the outer layer: jacket, trousers, skirt, sweater… while “vêtements” encompasses everything: shirt, underwear, socks.
