2. Các câu hỏi thường gặp về Clothes

What factors do you think affect the clothes we choose to wear?

I think circumstances and personal preferences largely determine our clothing choices. On the one hand, you will dress in a formal or casual style, depending on the event you attend. At the same time, a person's fashion sense or personality also plays a huge role in choosing an outfit.

For example, on formal occasions, I prefer white shirts and trousers to elegant dresses, as this style is smart and suits me best.

Is it possible to look good without spending lots of money on clothes?

Of course possible. It's not the extravagant items but the fashion sense of each person that makes that person really attractive. From my experience, I have a lot of friends my age who know how to mix and match different items to suit each other.

However, it is surprising that many of their clothes are even second-hand or from cheap markets. However, quality clothes will help improve one's overall look, so they are definitely worth the money.

Do fashion shows have an impact on what we are wearing?

Yes, for certain individuals, especially for dedicated followers of fashion. Fashion shows always introduce and promote the latest trends, from which people can learn and follow to look more trendy.

Although I love to watch the latest fashion shows, the clothes from these shows are not my everyday wear, and they are often too expensive.

Do you think have fashion trends are constantly changing?

Yes, no doubt. The fashion industry is ever-changing due to a number of external factors, including seasonal changes and the influence of trendsetters, such as fashion designers and celebrities. In fact, by definition, a trend does not last. If you follow the industry closely, you will understand that it is not only changing but sometimes old fashion trends, for example: crop top, wide leg jeans, white eyeliner.

However, certain types of clothing are always favored such as jeans or t-shirts. These classics are staples and elegant styles rarely change and look good no matter what other trends are going on.
