A cardigan is a type of sweater/jumper that ties, buttons or zips down the front; by contrast, a pullover does not open in front, but forms a solid tube around the torso. The cardigan was named after James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, a British military commander, following his service in the Crimean War. It is usually machine- or hand-knitted from wool or cotton.
A pullover is a piece of clothing, also called a sweater, jumper or jersey. Hence, the military uniform woollen pullover known colloquially as the "woolly pully".
The term vest derives from French veste, Italian vesta, veste "robe, gown," and Latin vestis, from vestire "to clothe". The sleeveless garment worn by men beneath the coat may have been introduced by King Charles I of England; a diary entry from October 8, 1666, written by Samuel Pepys states, "The King hath yesterday, in Council, declared his resolution of setting a fashion for clothes .... It will be a vest, I know not well how; but it is to teach the nobility thrift."
A poncho is a simple garment designed to keep the body warm, or if made from an impermeable material, to keep dry during rain. It is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening for the head and sometimes for the arms. Some ponchos, especially those made to ward off rain, also have hoods attached.
Alternative ponchos are now designed as fashion accessories. They are the same shape but of different material. They are designed to look fashionable and be loose and comfortable, rather than ward off cold and rain. These are often made out of wool or yarn, knitted or crocheted.

Jewellery, also spelled Jewelry, is a personal ornament, such as a necklace, ring, or bracelet, made from jewels, precious metals or other substance.
The word Jewerly is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicised from the Old French "jouel" in around the 13th century. Further tracing leads back to the Latin word "jocale", meaning plaything. Jewerly is one of the oldest forms of body adornment. Recently found were 100,000 year-old Nassarius shells that were made into beads and are thought to be the oldest known Jewerly.
