Did you know why we wear clothes? --because of sin! It's true.

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Adam and Eve covered their sinfulness, their nakedness, with fig leaves. What's more, the Lord God sacrificed an animal and made clothes for Adam and Eve before He put them out of Eden.

Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
And now you know.
