Model Answer 1:
People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.

Jeans are common clothing items and are available around the world and mostly popular among the youths who are of my age. I wear jeans pant and shirt always even when I attend in any formal occasion. The most important benefit of wearing jeans clothing is that they do not become dirty as easily as the other types of clothes do. Moreover, you can have the pant and shirt of all size and shape and are sold at a reasonable price. They are found in different colours and attractive designs too. It makes the look smarter in some cases than the formal attire.

Usually, the jeans cloth is like all the other available clothes, and produced from jean fabric but it is special in the sense that it lasts longer than the other clothes. Jeans is a bit heavier in weight and thus the attires made with the clothes are of higher quality. Besides, the colours are also attractive and able to get the attention of the surrounding people for the distinguished design. The pants and shirts made with jeans cloths are like usual shirt and pants but you can use them both for formal and informal purposes whereas the other clothes are not suitable to serve the same purpose simultaneously.

I frequently wear the clothes but when I have to attend my university classes, I wear a jeans pant and a polo shirt and when it is about attending any formal gathering or attending any invitation, I prefer a jeans shirt with a jeans pant. But sometimes I have to wear formal clothes to being forced by my parents as they are on the view that I look smarter with the formal attire. But I feel more confident being casual with my jeans clothing. But during the presentation days at my university, I have to be formal as the teachers do not allow students presenting their assigned presentations in informal attire. Except for the issues of my parents and university functions, I always wear jeans and feel comfy in wearing jeans and light polo or t-shirts.

I prefer jeans for a good number of reasons. First of all, I am comfortable with jeans as it allows air circulation through the body. But the skinny jeans actually do not allow so and I also do not prefer those. Besides, jeans clothing is found in a variety of styles and designs which is not available for the formal clothing. Jeans is found in a ready-made state and you do not need to place an order to a tailoring shop to make attire with jean fabric. When I put on a jeans pant with a polo shirt, I look dashing and feel confidence inside.




Model Answer 2:
Various types of clothing are available in Japan, and they are divided into two parts – traditional Japanese garments and western clothing. Between the two, I like the traditional one and kimono is one of them. Basically, I wear kimono in seasons and feel a great sense of comfort. Thank you for the question. Here goes a brief description of the attire.

A wide variety of kimonos is available in Japan. They are made with different fabrics like silk, wool and even with the synthetic fabrics. The kimono is mostly used during the cooler seasons and months of the year because the fabrics are heavier than the usual garment fabrics and there are multiple layers. If someone puts them on during the ordinary days, it would be hard to manage the cloth. Sweating is a very usual phenomenon then. Basically, the darker colours are used during the cooler months of the year while the lighter colours are used on summer days.

Kimono is available in multiple styles. It, in fact, ranges, from formal to casual. But it comes with a basic T shape. Most people wear the casual type of their regular activities and the reserve the formal ones for attending any occasion. Besides, the style of wearing the attire is also different and they are available in different colour and texture. Kimonos made with silk is the most desirable one among everyone. People prefer to wear the silk-made kimonos in special events and use the kimonos made with polyester or cotton fabrics for their casual use. The dress looks stunning when worn but there are some issues with wearing it. Everyone cannot wear the dress and needs external help. It becomes difficult for the modern women to assemble the kimono as it has over 10 pieces of parts. A prescribed way needed to be followed for the purpose.  

Kimono is a traditional dress for females. So, I do not wear it frequently. Rather, I like to wear it marking any celebrations. In fact, kimono is mostly worn on the national days. When the women of Japan came out on the street wearing kimono, the view becomes gorgeous. The style of kimono wearing is different for the married and single women in Japan. Being single, I use the furisode style for me and there are floor-length sleeves. I use the style for attending any special occasion. Kimono is also worn by men on special occasions like a marriage ceremony or any other formal occasions. But it is difficult for me to assemble the parts and thus I am in need of support from my mum. She helps me to assemble the separate parts together and make it look nice. When I need to attend any formal occasion, I seek help from professionals as well.

I like kimono so much for multiple reasons. In fact, this is a gorgeous outfit for both men and women. But movement becomes a bit slower with kimono. But the colours and patterns are attractive and also makes the people look beautiful. The colours are basically matched with seasons to reflect the seasonal environment. Besides, this is an expensive attire that everyone is unable to afford. So, when I wear it, I feel lucky than other people and brings a sense of gratitude to the Creator for allowing me to afford it. Based on the facts, I like to wear this attire so much.
