Talking about Fashion
Sunita and Christie are talking about fashion and their personal styles…
Sunita: Hi, Christie! What are you reading? Is that a fashion magazine?
Christie: Yes, it is. I don’t usually read fashion magazines, but my sister bought it, so I
decided to have a look at the latest fashion trends for summer.
Sunita: In my opinion, people should wear what they feel comfortable in and what suits
them, not what is set as a fashion trend… Do you follow fashion trends?
Christie: No, I don’t really follow fashion… I just like having a look at the photos. I’d never
be able to pull some of the clothes off though. I like mixing different styles and patterns,
depending on my mood and the occasion of course.
Sunita: I really like your style because it’s unique and it suits your personality. I’d never
think of mixing prints and putting checked trousers with a loose, flowery blouse, but it looks
great on you!
Christie: I’ve noticed that you like different prints too, and tapered or ripped jeans. And I’ve
noticed that you wear clothes with nice, feminine details – they have zips, buttons, bows or
ruffles which always catch my eye.
Sunita: Yes, you’re totally right. For me, it’s all about the details… I always look at the
finer details when I’m shopping, and I think it expresses my personality. What about
accessories? Do you think they’re important?
Christie: Accessories are great because they complete any outfit! I have lots of them…
earrings, necklaces, rings, and lots of bracelets too.
Sunita: Shoes are my weakness! I have far too many of them, but I can’t stop myself from
buying a new pair if I like them…
Christie: Although we said that we don’t follow the fashion, clearly, we actually do pay a lot
of attention to our clothes!
