IMO if you have to ask then your not truly comfortable with your gear.
When I started riding there was no helmet law saying you had to wear a helmet, so of course I didnt wear one at all times. I look back on those days and thank God that he was watching over my young dumb butt.
I bought textile pants and jacket, the first little spill they got ripped up. I went to full leather riding gear and never had a problem with them, even in my worst accident only minor scratches on my skin, pain and discomfort a different story. I do not wear my leather gear at all times, I know I should but I do not. However my head is fully protected at all times.
I would say once you get all your gear on look at yourself in the mirror ask yourself if you feel safe and protected with what you have on. If you do great if not change out to better equipment as you can afford it.
