Left radical is a radical form of 'clothing' (衣). Right radical is 'skin' (皮), which here acts phonetically to express 'cover'. This character originally meant 'to cover oneself with clothing', i.e., to wear clothes. Its current means are much broader. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ''Sustained by clothes covering skin.'
