Clothes and Fashion: IELTS Speaking Part 1 Model Answer
Speaking Part 1
1 What types of clothes do you like t0 wear?
Well, it depends. When I go to work, I always try to look sharp because I work in a formal environment. So that often means a suit and tie. But, if I’m just hanging out with my friends or taking a leisurely stroll, you’re more likely to find me in casual outfits: a well-worn pair of jeans, a T-shirt and some sneakers.
2 What kind of clothes do you never wear?
I absolutely hate athleisure clothing. They say it’s supposed to be comfortable. I really don’t know why they say that. I get all hot and sweaty in it. I’d rather just work out in a t-shirt and shorts.
3 Where do you buy most of your clothes?
Hmm, again, it kind of depends. If I’m feeling flush, I might go to the and splurge on some clothes. On the other hand, if I don’t have a lot of money, I might shop at flea markets. You can score some great deals there and buy tons of clothes without breaking the bank.
4 Have you ever worn a uniform?
Yes, absolutely. Wearing uniform is kind of the norm in my country. Students are often dressed in a plain white button-up shirt and a pair of navy slacks, and the shirt has to be tucked in. The look is quite sedate, and I gotta say I liked it, because I didn’t have to stand in front of the mirror fussing over what to wear to school.
