overclothe (third-person singular simple present overclothes, present participle overclothing, simple past and past participle overclothed or overclad)

  1. (transitive) to clothe over; enwrap in/with clothing
    • 1979, Herbert M. Shelton, Human Life:
      Men are more prone to overclothe themselves than women. Present styles in women's clothes are far more sensible than men's. Particularly in winter do men overclothe themselves.
