Sample 1


Although I have numerous clothes at my disposal, there is one which I often wear, and hence it is worth mentioning.

What is it?

It is my tracksuit 

How often do you wear it?

I wear it every morning and evening. Moreover, whenever I play any sport, I wear it.

What is it like?

It is made from hosiery stuff, and its colour is grey.

And explain why you enjoy wearing it.

I enjoy wearing it for many reasons. Firstly, it is incredibly comfortable. I have a hectic lifestyle and must wear formal clothes at my workplace. Due to it, I feel tired in the evenings. When I wear my tracksuit after reaching home, I have a sigh of relief, and I do not feel lethargic.

Moreover, it helps me in sports. For example, I play lawn tennis every morning to keep myself physically fit. Firstly it is incredibly comfortable to play in the tracksuit because it is stretchable. Secondly, in case I fall, I do not get any injury because its heavy fabric protects me from damage.

Thirdly it suits my personality. In the mornings and evenings, I meet many people from my neighbourhood. I feel comfortable talking to them because my clothing makes me feel confident. Often I get compliments for my tracksuit.

Lastly, I wear it often because my brother gifted it to me on my last birthday. After that, he went to Canada for greener pastures, and by wearing it, I feel that my brother is close to me.

Despite so much usage, its colour has remained strong.

Sample 2


Being a regular commuter, I have to wear different clothes. However, there is one piece of clothing which I wear often.

What is it?

My mother gifted me a pair of royal blue jeans on my last birthday.

How often do you wear it?

I wear it thrice a week.

What is it like?

It is a regular-fit pair of jeans with no unique designs.

And explain why you enjoy wearing it.

The first and foremost reason why I enjoy wearing it is its stuff, which is rough and tough. As I travel by public transport a lot, I need a pair of jean which do not get torn easily and is comfortable to wear and fits

the bill.

Secondly, despite being comfortable, the jeans are stylish, and it complements well with tops of all colours because of their royal blue shade.

Thirdly it looks elegant because the designer left no stone unturned to make it perfect.

Moreover, whenever I wear it, I get Complements. I vividly remember once I had to go to a party, and due to the shortage of time, I wore these jeans with a white t-shirt, and I was under the impression that people would comment on my outlook. However, to my surprise, most party members liked my outfit and complimented me.

It is also made of cotton, so it is easy to wash. I just put it in the washing machine, and since it is fast drying, I can wear it after two-three hours of washing. Furthermore, its royal blue hides the dust, so I can wear it for many days without washing it.

Lastly, the stuff is wrinkle-free, so I need not iron it.

1. What is the difference between the dressing style of young people and that of older people? 

There is a vast difference in the dressing styles of younger and older people. Youngers prefer to wear clothes according to the latest trend and go beyond the conventional domain to carry new outfits. On the contrary, older people like to keep their dress simple; their primary focus is comfort, so they wear loose clothes.

2. Do people in the northern part of your country wear different clothes than those in the South? 

There are significant contrasts in clothing styles between India’s northern and southern regions. For example, Punjabi suits have been more in trend in the North for the last 100 years, while females in the South generally wear saris. Also, males in the South frequently wear a lungi, which is not trending in the North.

3. What kind of clothes do people wear after work? 

In this modern era, fierce competition has become an integral part of our lives, so most people have to wear formal attire at the workplace, which is not that comfortable to wear. Due to this reason, when people come back from work, they prefer to wear loose clothes like tracksuits, Bermudas, kurta pyjamas, etc.

4. What kind of clothes should people wear at work? 

At work, the focus should be on productivity, and due to this reason, people should wear appropriate and formal attire, and they should refrain from wearing flashy clothes. The dress code may differ according to the job profile, whereas in most professional settings, appropriate formal clothes are the need of the hour. However, certain professions, like gym trainers, may need sports clothing or typical uniforms.

5. Do you think students need to wear school uniforms? 

Wearing school uniforms is prudent because it creates a sense of equality among the students. Apart from this, it saves time because students need not choose what to wear every day. Lastly, it saves money also because the parents need not purchase various clothes.
