The verb used to refer to wearing something in Korean can differ depending on the item the person is referring to. 입다, 쓰다, 차다, and 신다 all mean to “wear” something but each are used along with a different noun.

1. 입다 ( ip-da) – to try on clothes on the body like t-shirts and pants.

이거 입어봐도 될까요?

Can I try this on?

2. 쓰다 (sseu-da) – to try on things that cover your face and head like makeup, glasses, and hats.

이거 써봐도 될까요?

Can I try this one?
