Comfort over style

Five different approaches to fashion and style


When it comes to fashion and style, different people look at it in different ways. For some people, being dressed
in the latest clothes is a must, while for others comfort over elegance is far more important. Here are five
approaches to fashion.
(a) __________
This kind of person would die for fashion. Its not that they want to look like other people, in fact they dont. They
want to be the ones that other people want to copy, the ones who decide what is fashionable. They spend a lot of
time shopping trying to find that new look.
(b) __________
For this person its all about the label. If it doesnt have the right name on it then they wont buy it. These people
are willing to pay more simply to have the right brand like Bench, Levis or Nike.
(c) __________
Its all about image for these people. But unlike other people, its almost an anti-fashion statement. They
deliberately dress to look different, but also to show that they belong to a particular group. Good examples of
these kinds of people are Goths with their black clothes, big boots and dyed black hair.
(d) __________
These people really dont care whether its fashionable or not. For them, feeling good rather than looking good is
what is important.
(e) __________
The final type of person is the one who is just plain unfashionable. There is absolutely no thought put into the
clothes they buy or wear. This is the kind of person who gets up in the morning and throws on the first things that
they find even if they dont match.
