IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic & Questions: Fashion with Model Answers
Q1: What types of clothes do you like wearing?
Well, it sort of 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 by contrast, if I’m just hanging out with my friends or talking 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.
Look sharp (phrase) look elegant
Well-worn (adj) showing the signs of extensive use or wear
Q2: Where do you buy 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.
Flush (adj) with a lot more money than you usually have
Splurge on (phrase) spend a lot of money on something
Break the bank (phrase) ruin one financially, exhaust one’s resources
Q3: Did you wear a school uniform when you were younger?
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.
Button-up shirt (phrase) shirt with buttons closed tightly
Tuck in (phrase) to put the end of something such as a piece of clothing under or behind another piece in order to make it tidy

Tip for IELTS Speaking Part 1:
If you get some IELTS questions asking about making choice (Which kind of food do you like? or Where do you listen to music?), you can say:
– It (really) depends.
– I suppose it depends on …(different situations, etc)
