Speaker A: If you ask me, I think fashion is kind of unnatural. I mean who cares about tiny details like pockets here or pockets there. I believe clothes should serve their purpose. When it’s hot, they shouldn’t be too warm and when it’s cold they should keep you warm and protect you from winds when it’s necessary. I’d never buy a coat or a jacket just because they’re said to be fashionable now — to buy an item of clothing I must feel comfortable in it.
Speaker B: I argue with my parents all the time — just really all the time — because they say I’ve got loads of clothes which in their opinion I never wear. They just don’t understand it — I do need all these clothes. I may spend too much time in the morning choosing what to put on — okay, I admit that. To be perfectly frank, I must also admit that sometimes I forget what I have in my wardrobe. But it’s great having a choice. My parents just don’t get it.
Speaker С: From time to time I may switch on a fashion channel or look through a beauty magazine. My elder sister is a shopping consultant and she tells me about the hottest trends when I ask her to. She helps people create their own style in clothes and she says that clothes are fashionable only if they become you. You must consider your style, your looks and figure when you want to buy something new because otherwise you won’t look good.
Speaker D: It’s not that I’m really a passionate follower of fashion — no, nobody would say that about me. But I spend a lot of time in clothing shops and I do care about what to put on each day and I never wear the same outfit two days a week. I look through fashion magazines to find out the latest trends. I do all those things just because I feel it’s a sign of respect for yourself and the people around you when you pay attention to your clothes and looks.
Speaker E: I think when people talk about fashion they often mean street fashion — what people wear every day. I don’t think it’s true fashion. It’s more like a kind of hysteria — she has such a dress — I want such a dress too. Real fashion is top fashion, runways and limelight, famous designers like D&G and big brands. These clothes are expensive and anyway you won’t put them on when you go to work and they are impractical — they are just beautiful.
Speaker F: Fashion? I never waste my time thinking about it. I have so much to do for my studies that I simply put on whatever I find in my wardrobe — usually it’s a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. I never go to clothes shops — my mom knows my size and she buys me what she thinks I need. I trust her taste and I believe she knows best really. I’m too practical and down-to-earth a person to think about matching colors or stuff like that so I just don’t care about it.
