I wrote "et je revêtirai les vêtements confortables" and it corrected it to "et je mettrai les vêtements confortables". Why can't I use the verb revêtir here? It's the word I always knew for "to put on [clothes]" and according to my dictionary that's exactly what it means.

It is because revêtir is more to 'don clothes' which sounds too posh and is the wrong register here.
To put clothes on = mettre des vêtements
Hope this helps!
