Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Tabard

The tabard of an English pursuivant of armsImage via Wikipedia
Tabard: noun -  A coarse outer garment worn by common folk, monks and foot soldiers; a short open surcoat worn by a knight over his armour; a jerkin worn by a herald; woman's sleeveless jerkin or loose overgarment.

'She wore a highly decorated tabard in prime colours over her small white bikini, though it did little to hide her figure, as was her intention.'

'In my adult fantasy, currently undergoing the editing process, I've used the tabard as a universal and non-sexist garment for one of the societies depicted in the story, because it's an essential part of their religion that they're able to remove their covering quickly when at prayer.'
