"I am wearing a cotton skirt."
Translation:Je porte une jupe en coton.
Hi! Native French speaker here.
The verb “mettre” can mean a lot of things. It can mean: to put, to put on, to place, to apply, to wear, etc...
In this case,
- “Je mets une jupe en coton”
- I am putting on a cotton skirt
Also, the hints are just hints to put the students on the right track. They are not an alternative answer for the exercise.
I hope this helped...
Bonne journée et bonne étude!
Unfortunately the Duolingo staff doesn’t read all the forums...

It’s the easiest way to let them know about things like that...
