The verb "indossare" is used to express the action of wearing something, such as clothes or accessories. It is commonly used when talking about putting on or donning garments.
For example, if you want to say "I am wearing a red dress", you would say "Indosso un vestito rosso". In this case, "indossare" is conjugated in the first person singular form "indosso" to match the subject pronoun "io" (I).
This verb can also be used in different tenses and with different subjects to indicate who is wearing something. For instance, "Tu indossi una maglietta blu" means "You are wearing a blue T-shirt", where "tu" (you) is the subject pronoun and "indossi" is the second person singular form of the verb.
