Clothes and Fashion / IELTS Speaking task 1

Updated: Nov 13, 2022

• Are clothes and clothing fashions important to you?

I would say that the importance of clothing and fashion has changed over the course of my life. When I was young, it was important for me to dress fashionably. Then I started to pay more attention to my personality and did not pay much attention to clothes. But then, when I decided on my social and professional role and status, I again began to be attentive to my clothes, but rather, as a part of my image.

• What different clothes do you wear for different situations?

I wear business attire to meet my clients. When I meet with relatives or friends, I wear more democratic clothes. If there are parties or family gatherings, I wear more festive and colourful clothes. And travelling, I wear comfortable clothes.

• Do you wear different styles of clothes now compared to 10 years ago?

I definitely wear a different style of clothing now compared to the one that was ten years ago. Clothing is part of a professional image and social status, therefore, I would say that now I wear clothes that more accurately and concisely reflect my professionalism.

• Do you think the clothes we wear say something about who we are?

Of course, I think the clothes say or even speak about who we are. I see that clothes are a tool for expressing our personal message to the world about how much we support emotions, mood, how rational, democratic we are, how open and attentive we are. People who see our image get tuned in to how to communicate with us correctly.

• Where do you buy most of your clothes? [Why?]

I like to buy clothes in small shops where they sell unusual clothes, maybe clothes from designers, but who are little known and put a soul into work. Because I want to support the development of talented designers by buying their clothes, and I also want to buy clothes that can express my nature more accurately and with more sincerity.

• How often do you buy new clothes for yourself? [Why?]

It's hard for me to give a definite answer because at different times I buy clothes for myself with different frequencies. For example, when I was shaping my image, I bought clothes more often, but then the image only required some updating sometimes, and I bought clothes less often.

• How do you decide which clothes to buy? [Why?]

This is an interesting question. I have asked myself the same question many times. Most likely, long before buying clothes, I perceive the attitude of others towards me, and then I think over what adjustments I want to make to my image. And then, there comes an intuitive mental picture and understanding of what the updated image should be. And then I, visiting suitable and convenient stores, take a closer look at what is most suitable for the implementation of my idea, and then I make a decision to buy if I see that the price is acceptable or keep looking for new opportunities to buy.

• Have the kinds of clothes you like changed in recent years? [Why? / Why not?]

Definitely, the types of clothes that I like have changed in recent years. The quality of the fabric is changing, the quality of making clothes is changing. Even though this is the same business style, but within this style, there are significant changes in the colour of clothing and cut and the entire silhouette. And I don't always like these changes.

• Do you care about fashion?

I cannot say for sure that I do. Rather, I can consider the looks that fashion designers create as some inspiration for me. This is not the same as attention to fashion, in the usual sense. Since clothing designers are kind of artists working with modern materials, modern images and possibilities, I draw some information from seeing their work about the trends in the development of ideas in modern society.

• Do people from your country think fashion is important?

People in my country have very different attitudes towards fashion. Fashion is often a demonstration of bright, talented ideas and the possibilities of their implementation. And, some people definitely think that fashion is important as an engine of talents. But another part of people, as I can see, believe that fashion is sometimes too superficial and selective to express all the diversity and depth of talented ideas, and therefore these people stop paying attention to fashion, they tend to develop their own ideas.
