"ORBETELLO, Italy — The girls, tanning their arms and tattooed ankles, looked up from their phones to sift through the caftans hanging from the Moroccan peddler’s cart."
– New York Times (Sep 1, 2019)
A traditional Turkish garment, the caftan became popular in the West during the 1960s as a loose, oversized shirtdress used as a casual cover-up that you might wear poolside or at the beach.

He’s got on a lime-green African dashiki with tiny golden swirls stitched on it.

"The chief bridesmaid lost weight ahead of the wedding, and the frock was too big – seemingly leaving her with just one option."
– Fox News (Sep 3, 2019)
Frock originated in part to mean the robe worn by a monk or a priest; this meaning is still clear in defrocked, used when a priest or another member of an esteemed organization, like a judge, is stripped of that status as punishment for a serious offense.

flared pants ending at the calves and worn with riding boots
"The man was a dashing, handsome, storybook kind of man, dressed in jodhpurs and riding boots."
– How the García Girls Lost Their Accents
Jodhpurs may be super comfortable, and perfect for riding horses (which they were designed for), but they sort of look like the tailor started to run out of fabric halfway down the legs.

a loose-fitting dress hanging straight from the shoulders
"For her latest appearance, she wore a Reiss shift dress, known as the "Azzura," in a black-and-white 1960s-style swirl print."
– Fashionista (Mar 8, 2019)
Shift means many things; in this case the word refers to an often sleeveless undershirt from 18th century Europe. The shape became popular here in the 1920s, as a rebellion against the corsets, bustles and long skirts from earlier fashion eras. During the Twenties, flappers wore shifts as a rebellious fashion statement, but an added bonus is that the short, loose dress is easy to dance in.
a loose coverall that protects the clothes
"The collection was soon full of smocks, aprons, and long skirts layered over wide-legged pants."

"From player fines to PED and drug enforcement to equipment and slow play policing, the tour continues to play things close to the vest."
– Golf Digest (Sep 11, 2019)

a wooden instrument of punishment on a post
It was, in short, the platform of the pillory; and above it rose the framework of that instrument of discipline, so fashioned as to confine the human head in its tight grasp, and thus hold it up to the public gaze.
regulating or controlling expenditure or personal behavior
On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth, surrounded with an elaborate embroidery and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter A. It was so artistically done, and with so much fertility and gorgeous luxuriance of fancy, that it had all the effect of a last and fitting decoration to the apparel which she wore, and which was of a splendour in accordance with the taste of the age, but greatly beyond what was allowed by the sumptuary regulations of the colony.
a temporary arrangement erected around a building
Meagre, indeed, and cold, was the sympathy that a transgressor might look for, from such bystanders, at the scaffold.

clothing in general
"Open a passage; and I promise ye, Mistress Prynne shall be set where man, woman, and child may have a fair sight of her brave apparel from this time till an hour past meridian.
