how to say "to wear"

Postby smart888 » Apr 24th, 15, 12:29

Hello!

I have a question about how to say "now I'm wearing a coat". As far as I know there is a verb носить which means to wear clothes, but it's a multidirectional verb, so theoretically it can't be used when going in one direction, or am I overthinking this? I want to say:
- What are you wearing now?
- I'm wearing a blue coat.

Thanks for your help!

hi,

I'd translate these sentences as follows:

- What are you wearing now? - Ты сейчас в чём?/ Что на тебе сейчас надето?
- I'm wearing a blue coat. - Я в синем пальто / На мне синее пальто
