Hi Antonio, you use "to wear" when you are talking about the clothing that you have on. For example, "Right now I'm wearing jeans and a t-shirt." "I'm going to wear a skirt to the party." "To put on" means to take an item of clothing and get it on your body, and the item of clothing is the direct object. For example, "I want you to put on a shirt before you come to the dinner table." "Wait for me! I'm putting my shoes on." "To dress" also means to put clothing on, but you can use it without a direct object. For example, "I'm dressing" means "I'm putting clothes on." You can also talk about dressing another person or dressing yourself. I hope that helps!

"To dress" is very general. I am getting dress to go out. "To put on" is the action. I put on the jacket because it was cold. "To wear" is referring to the items of clothing on you. I like to wear this jacket because it's pretty.
