English term or phrase: What I Wear
In My essay i will talk about what i wear at school and in my spear time. At school i leave my house with black socks and trousers. A white shirt and a tie. And i wallways have my black shoes. As soon as i leave the house of comes the tie. For PE at school i wear my navy shorts and a white t-shirt. After school i take of my school uniform and put on my navy tracksuit trousers, navy t-shirt and trainers. That is when it is cold. When it is hot i wear shorts and a white t-shirt. At the weekends i wear trousers and t-shirts like any normal man. My brother at school wears his blue school uniform with his white t-shirt underneath. He also wears black trousers and shoes. At the weekend he wears his Manchester United top and tracksuit trousers. My mum works in the school kitchen in insch so she has to put on her blue uniform but at the weekend she wears jeans and a t-shirt. So that is what my family and me wear to school and work and at the weekends.

German translation:Wie ich mich kleide or: Meine Kleidung
Explanation:
or "Was ich anziehe"

For the title of an essay, "Meine Kleidung" or "Wie ich mich kleide" would be best as they immediately let the reader know what the essay is about, and there is no ambuguity at all.
(And you surely did not expect anyone to translate the rest of your paragraph for you?)
