I'm doing some writing anda story in said writinga fantasy setting, where there are characters who dress with ancient Egyptian type clothing  - such as haram pant and usekh collars. Since the story is a fantasy with noand not set in the real historical Egypt, should I call them by their proper names? I can't find a comfortable way to describe such particular dress pieces without it seeming forced or unnatural.

Thank you.

Should I use the real name or attempt to describe?
