The Necessary Cover for Men and Women

What is the necessary cover according to Islam and what kind of clothing is the proper cover for men and women? Are wigs that some women wear considered to be a proper cover of their natural hair?

According to the Islamic law, in order to be properly covered, women must cover all of the body except the face and hands. Furthermore, some coverings, such as wigs, that are worn as ornaments are not enough. Similarly, clothes that are considered to be ornamental clothes are not enough. Proper cover for men, on the other hand, includes clothes that cover those parts of the body that are commonly covered by Muslims. Therefore covering the head, the hands, and arms (in short-sleeve shirts) and the like is not obligatory for men.
