The Dornish climate favors loose, layered robes. Dornish nobles prefer to wear robes of linen, satin, silk, or samite, accessorized with jeweled belts. Dornish armor is heavily enameled and inlaid with burnished copper, shining silver, and soft red gold, with cloaks over it to keep the sun off. Similarly, it is Dornish fashion to wrap helmets in long scarfs, to prevent the sun from beating down upon it. When crossing the deserts of Dorne during daytime, veils are used to keep the sands out of their faces.
