Упражнение 7. Read the opinions about clothes and fashion. What opinion do you share?
- highlight — подчеркивать
- features — черты
- offer — предлагать
- as a rule — как правило
- go camping — ходить в походы
- trend — тенденция (направление в моде)
- used to be — когда-то была
- go bankrupt — обанкротятся
- Opinion 1. People often wear very fashionable and expensive clothes but sometimes they can’t wear them well or wear the clothes which highlight their problems. To my mind, people should choose the clothes which are not fashionable, but which highlight their best features.
- Opinion 2. I don’t care what to wear as I don’t go out very often. As a rule, we spend evenings at home, sometimes we go camping at weekends. So, I don’t see any reason to wear fashionable clothes. I prefer to wear casual clothes because they are comfortable.
- Opinion 3. I believe that people who say they don’t care for fashionable clothes, usually simply don’t understand how to wear them. Or they don’t have enough money to follow the latest trends. As for me, I’d prefer to have trendy clothes than out-of-date ones.
- Opinion 4. To my mind, there is no fashion today. It used to be at the beginning of the 20-th century, when fashion houses offered new styles every decade. Nowadays fashion doesn’t offer anything new. Everything can be fashionable. I believe fashion houses will go bankrupt soon.
