Answer There was no single uniform for WWI, or WWII, for that matter. It depends on the country and branch of service. in the trenches the infant…rymen wore pants and boots, and jackets. The boots were actually more like shoes, covering only the ankles, and requiring cloth leggings or puttees (strips of cloth wrapped like a bandage) to keep dirt out and provide ankle support. Officers got taller boots, which were shiny. In bad weather they wore trench coats (hence the name) The trench coats had openings in the pockets so they could reach the stuff they normally carried without having to rearrange it all. The English and American infantrymen (I don't know about the French) had helmets that were semicircular and flared out at the edge. If you picture a "doughboy" that is what they looked like. The German helmets were taller and less bowl-shaped. Some of the officers had points on top. Each side had its own gas mask designs, and these changed frequently as newer and more deadly poison gases were invented throughout the war. The airmen of WWI wore very different gear than those in WWII. First, they had no parachutes. Towards the very end of the war, Germany did start to employ them. The aviators in WWII had jumpsuits with harnesses and places for their radios and air masks to hook on. over this they wore modern bomber jackets. The guys in WWI had no such luxuries, since radios at the time were too big and tempermental, and their cockpits were open and unpressurized. They wore jodhpurs and uniform jackets, under "teddy bear suits" which consisted of big fur-lined leather jackets that went to their knees sometimes, and big warm fur or leather boots. Of course they all had gloves, caps, and goggles. I know the regular uniform for the French air force (the Aeronautique Militaire) was grayish blue and had little squarish caps with a short bill in front. The Royal Flying Corps (British air force) had black uniforms because they were part of the Navy. After the war they became the Royal Air Force and got their own dark blue uniforms. I don't know much specifically about the German air force uniforms, but I know if got a Blue Max (the highest medal) and certain other medals, you had to wear them all the time. There were all kinds of special uniforms for various regiments and other things, like the particularly dashing outfits of the Australian Light Horsemen (watch "Gallipoli" to see a young Mel Gibson wearing it). Some of the Scottish regiments wore kilts, even in combat.
The uniforms were normally a Karki or Grey colour. The uniforms were said to be very heavy and uncomfortable for the soldiers to wear. Therefore, they just didn't like t…he uniforms, but it wouldn't really matter when they were fighting in a war lol. The uniforms worn by the soldiers of the First World War were made of wool. This made them very uncomfortable in the summer, and constricting to move in. The boots were like today's running shoes, which sometimes were known to fall apart! The wool puttees wrapped around the soldiers legs made moving a challenge, but were a nice addition to the uniform in the winter months. The tunic was once again, wool. On the tunic were pockets and pouches for various things. One soldier could carry ammunition, their field dress kit, kit bag, and mess supplies on their back along with their rifle, bayonet, entrenching tool, personal affects, and many other things at one time! As you can imagine, running about in a charge in knee deep mud with all this on you was a challenge itself!
The British Army uniform is a loose fitting garment with a turned down or "rolled" collar, rifle patches on the shoulders, patch pockets on the breast and side pockets l…et into the skirts below the waist. The 1902 pattern British tunic has plain removable shoulder straps while the British 1907 pattern tunic has sewn down cloth shoulder straps. This is the pattern that most British army troops went to battle in. hope this helps!

It all depends which countries uniform you're after, though most uniforms at the time were 4 pocket wool tunics, with standing collars (sort of shirt style), wool/cotton shirt…, wool trousers, ankle boots with leggings/putees.. If you're British then your wools are brown . American also brown . German feldgrau (Fieldgrey) . Austro-Hungarian also feldgrau . Russian light brown . Italian grey or tan (I'm not sure on Italians) . French are bluey grey, but not fieldgrey . I hope this has been of some help.
It was a camauflauged uniform so that the soldiers could blend into the back ground. If they had worn bright colouful uniforms it would have made them easy targets for r…ifles.
It had an overcoat/trenchcoat, field cap, web gear, puttees, boots, and a dull colored uniform blouse and pants.
Much as they do now.
They wore red wool uniforms with black leather boots. In the colonies these uniforms didn't work very well. On hot humid days on the east coast they were very hot to wear. The…re was no air conditioning or fans and wearing wool suits buttoned up to the neck had to be awful. The red color also made them a good target.
I'm not entirely sure but when the Spanish were in the Rif wars in Morocco from 1909-1911 and in 1920-1926 might show you what they would have worn, on which you can go to Bal…agan.org.uk shows you what they would have worn as their average infantry uniforms and which would makes it plausible of what they would have had at the time of WW1
WW1 was the last great imperial war, and the cut of its uniforms still reflected a spirit of imperialism. Tunics and pants were close-fitting, and if high boots were not… worn the pants were gathered from ankle to knee. Yet, the increasing range of weapons inspired the use of bland colors like US olive drab, British khaki (dust), and German feldgrau (field gray) to make soldiers less visible to the enemy. Also, specialized uniform accessories were invented as military technology improved. On the Western Front, the trench coat was introduced to protect the uniform from mud. Aviation personnel wore army uniforms with a fur-lined leather flight jacket and a leather flight helmet with goggles. Navy uniforms were not affected in terms of design or color, with white and dark blue remaining ever popular. A variety of hats were worn, but in 1916 most countries adopted steel helmets because head wounds from shrapnel had produced more casualties than machine gun bullets. Many imperial uniform elements were continued in WW2 and beyond, and the officer's peaked cap is still worn in numerous armies, navies, and air forces today. However, modern combat uniforms are loose-fitting, unattractive, and functional. I like to think of the WW1 uniform as the transitional midpoint of the old and the new in military uniform design. [Many photos of WW1 uniforms should be available on the Internet, but their color will be difficult to discern as color photography was not implemented until the 1930s. Also, many movies have been made about WW1, and even if the movie is bad, the uniforms will have a high degree of historical accuracy.]
They had large tents, structured for their needs.
They wore clothes
In World War 1
in world war one it was light blue and in world war two it was normal blue
In World War 1
Every nation had it's own uniform. The people of the particular nation would have designed their uniforms.
So they could tell who to kill and not kill.
In US in WW2
