Two types of clothing that start with the letter "I" are "Intimates" and "Indian headdress." Intimates are women's clothing, which are typically worn to cover the skin beneath outer garments. A Native American's ornamental head covering, which is worn during a ceremonial function or war, is called the Indian headdress.

Intimates serve various purposes, such as concealing a woman's intimate parts and reducing the friction of outer garments against the skin. Examples of intimates are brassieres, thongs and G-strings.

The Indian headdress, which is symbolic of a specific Native American tribe, is usually made of feathers. Each feather represents the Indian warrior's brave deed. The headdress is only made after sufficient feathers have been gathered.
