Is fashion important for you? Young people in Britain have different attitudes towards fashion. Phil, Tracey and Katya are exchanging their opinions on clothes and fashion. Dо they care what they wear? Is fashion important for all of them?
Tracey Ponsford All my classmates say that I'm trendy. Yes, Im! I enjoy wearing trendy clothes. I like to look cool and attractive. It's very important to know what is in fashion at the present moment. I like shopping and spend hours picking - clothes that suit me. My classmates say that I am interested in fashion too much, but it's not that bad, is it? Sometimes I can appear in something really gorgeous. When you are up with the latest fashions you feel you are an individual. If I could I would wear different pieces of clothing every day. I wish I had lots of money to do that.
Phil Slager I don't care what I wear. More than that I don't care what other people wear. My mum buys clothes for me at a market. Sometimes we have to shop in charity shops. Why not? Not all people can afford to be up to date with the latest fashions. I prefer casual 1 things jeans, T-shirts, sweaters or sportswear. My elder brother's mates have spiky hair, tattoos and piercing -. I wish my brother wouldn't do that but he doesn't listen. He says that they express their individuality. I don't know if they are right or not but I would never have all those things.
Katya Guseva Everyone in my class is really trendy. They spend a lot of time talking about clothes or accessories they want to spend their money on. Some friends of mine think that I'm boring and wear unfashionable things. Frankly speaking fashion is not very important for me. Fashion comes and goes. Looking clean and decent ( приличный ) is more important than looking trendy, isn't it? I prefer clothes which I feel comfortable in. I'm sure that you must feel good in what you wear and that is all. If I had a lot of money I would buy clothes which would never go out of fashion, or I'd buy some DVDs or a good book.
