Thou art a lady;
If only to go warm were gorgeous,
Why, nature needs not what thou gorgeous wear’st,
Which scarcely keeps thee warm.
– William Shakespeare
King Lear, Act 2, Scene 4. Lear tells Regan that she is a fashionable lady. If she dressed only to stay warm (what "nature needs"), she wouldn’t need the gorgeous clothes she is wearing, as they barely keep her warm. Lear is fighting against his daughters’ demand that he doesn’t need his knights.
