People have different attitudes to fashion, it means, each person has own style and taste. Some people don’t care what they wear, others, especially women are very choosy and like to spend a lot of money on clothes. Some people have an excellent taste in dress and are always dressed perfectly; others are slovenly and careless in dress. There are some people who want to be dressed according to the latest fashion even if it doesn’t suit them. We can buy ready-made clothes or buy them at the second-hand shops; others prefer to have them made at the tailor or dressmaker.
Fashion concerns not only clothes but also hairstyle, shoes, handbags, gloves, belts, hats, jewellery or glasses.
Geography, climate, poverty and wealth are factors that have influenced the style of clothing.
 
Materials
There are also a variety of materials the dress can be made of. The traditional natural materials are: cotton, wool, linen, velvet, flannel and silk. Nowadays there is a vast collection of new fabrics based on man-made fibres. But everybody usually looks for first class, washable, non-iron, colourfast, crease- and shrink-resistant fabric. Their design can be plain or patterned (flowered, geometric, striped, checked, dotted or spotted).
The way we dress/put on also depends on our taste, mood, season and occasion.
 
Summer dressing
In summer we wear light summer dresses such as: loose blouses with a low neckline and with short sleeves or without sleeves, shorts or Bermuda shorts and of course various T-shirts. Today cotton T-shirts decorated with labels, embroidery or printing enjoy the greatest popularity. On our feet we put on sandals, slippers or sneakers/trainers. When we go swimming we put on a swimming suit (one-piece or two-piece) and sometimes we take a straw hat.
 
Winter dressing
In winter we need to wear something warm, e.g. suits, trousers, jeans, cardigans, polo neck sweater, anorak and parkas, winter coats and jackets, sometimes even a fur coat, gloves or mittens, caps, hats, scarf and winter boots of course.
Dressing on special occasions
 
-  When we go to a concert or to the theatre we should be dressed properly. We wear an evening dress, which consists of a dark suit, a light shirt and a tie, sometimes an evening gown and pumps.
 
For sports we put on sports wear, such as jeans, shorts, T-shirts, parkas, track-suit and sport shoes (sneakers /trainers)
 
At home we like to feel comfortable, and so we prefer leisure wearing - jeans, tracksuit, T-shirts of different colours, sweatshirt with hood and on our feet slippers
 For cleaning, to the garden or workshop we must put on an apron or overalls
Uniforms
 
Special kinds of clothes are uniforms. Uniforms are worn particularly by professionals such as the police, health workers, and the army and sometimes by the workers of a certain firm. It is still a tradition in some schools in Britain to wear a school uniform. A boy’s uniform usually consists of a white shirt and grey or dark trousers and a dark sweater or blazer. The boys don’t mind wearing uniforms but on the other hand the girls hate wearing them. In their opinion the uniforms aren’t comfortable and fashionable at all. A girl’s uniform consists of a plain jacket, a blouse and a skirt in some dark colours, such as grey, navy blue or brown.
 
The argument for uniforms is that they prevent competition among the girls and hide differences in family incomes.
