Describe a time that you wore a type of clothes for a special occasion
You should say:
- Where you bought the clothes
- And what other people at the occasion thought of your clothes
By nature, I prefer simplicity and always pick casual clothes no matter what the occasion is. Yet off the top of my head, there comes a time when I had to put on a suit for a photo shoot for our yearbook, which I personally feel quite burdensome and formal.
Everyone was supposed to dress smartly and formally for the occasion, so boys were told to have their black suit on, and a pair of shining shoes or a brand-new pair of sneakers for footwear. I did also wear a necktie to look more elegant and sophisticated. The girls were simpler in their clothes; some colorful traditional clothes could do wonders to their outer appearance.
The suits were rented from a store that specializes in renting costumes for artists or students about to graduate, and fortunately our monitor made great preparations beforehand so we had our clothes rented dirt cheap.
I’d have to admit that it was the very first time I put on formal wear, so my friends made quite sarcastic comments about my look at saying that I looked quite serious and unnatural. But somehow I was quite satisfied with how the clothes fitted me perfectly, and afterwards I tried to be more at ease I would say I looked great. I mapped dozens of selfie pictures and stored in my phone and sometimes take them out and feel quite nostalgic, actually.
QUESTIONS FOR PART 3
What kinds of clothes do people wear after work?
There are a wide range of clothes people can choose to put on when people go home from their office. One of the most popular types is shorts and T-shirts, which I think is favored by both sexes. I guess this is simply because at the, workplace staff are supposed to dress formally and such clothes are pretty uncomfortable. So, casual wear helps the blood circulate better and thereby relaxing their body. Many people are also keen on gym clothes, pajamas or skirts as it doesn’t increase their laundry, which means they don’t have to wash their clothes frequently.
What kinds of clothes should people wear at work?
Actually, I think it depends on what people do. One of the most popular types among manual laborers is thick pieces of garments with protective gear as these help them to prevent injuries and dirt. However, those working in the office have different dress code for sure. To be more precise, office workers tend to dress more formally like a pair of trousers and shirts for males or a dress for females. This is probably because they have to present a professional Image in the eyes of the customers or wearing such clothes gives staff more confidence in their ability.
Do you think it is necessary for children to wear school uniforms?
As far as I’m concerned, I strongly believe that it’s absolutely vital for school children to wear uniforms. The most convincing reason is that in a developing country, if all students wear the same clothes, which are white shirts and blue pants, then poor students will feel less humiliated and embarrassed about the financial conditions and consequently can focus more on their academic study. The second reason is that uniform brings and cultivates a sense of belonging and unity in a group. Besides, it will be pretty pleasing to the eyes, if you see students in their uniforms in the schoolyard line up to enter the class, which I think is unique in my country.
Where do people in your country buy clothes?
Actually, there is quite an array of places people can purchase their clothes. The most typical one is at the supermarket where clothes of all price ranges are on display. I reckon it absolutely caters for consumers’ interest as they are able to pick whatever item of garment they like and try it on. ask their buddies’ opinion and so on. Another place is at the market or alongside the streets. Clothes sold at these points are often of lower quality but at more reasonable prices, which is quite a popular choice among less well-off folks. Needless to say but most people are short of cash at times so this alternative seems to be pretty good.
When do people wear formal clothes?
Formal attire is often a must on important occasions such as meetings, ceremonies and other solemn events. Having said this, it’s becoming more and more popular that people nowadays prefer casual wear on nearly all occasions and it’s a standard practice in my country, I’d have to admit. For example, it’s absolutely normal to wear jeans and T-shirts to weddings, birthdays, meetings and so on. if the nature of the event is not too serious. This is quite in contrast to that of Westerners who often hut on a suit or a dress every time they join a formal event.
Do people wear formal clothes more often or less often than the past?
I’d say casual attire is gaining more popularity as people in modern society prefer flexibility and convenience. For example. it’s absolutely normal to wear jeans and T-shirts to weddings, birthdays, meetings and so on, if the nature of the event is not too serious. This is quite in contrast to that of Westerners who often put on a suit or a dress every time they join a formal event.
Will the way we dress influence the way we behave?
This is an interesting question, and my answer is yes. For those creative people, they often choose a combination of diverse colors in their clothing style and such people tend to be fashionistas who have a firm grasp of a hat to wear to make them look best. These people are dynamic, energetic and love to socialize. On the other hand, those who often wear plain clothes to belong to a group which doesn’t have much enthusiasm about fashion and IS willing to put on anything they can find in their wardrobe every morning
