A QUESTION OF TASTE. FASHION. Fashion is something we deal
with everyday. Even people, who say they donТt care what they wear, choose
clothes every morning that say a lot about them and how they feel that day.
What influences our choice of clothes is an interesting question. I believe
that most of the people do not follow the fashion displayed on the catwalk.
That kind of clothes is the product of famous high-class designersТ work, it
is more often very extravagant
and extremely expensive. It is also not designed to be worn every day,
but it is suitable some special occasions. However, we definitely get
fashion ideas from music clips, videos, books and television. Movies also
have a big impact on what people wear. For example it is known that more
sunglasses were sold in America after the movie Man In Black. Sometimes a
trend is world-wide.
Back in the 50-s teenagers everywhere dressed like Elvis Presley.
Musicians and other cultural icons as well as political and royal figures
have always influenced what we are wearing. Newspapers and magazines
reported on what Hillary Clinton was wearing when she was the 1st lady. The
death of Princess Diana was a severe blow to the high fashion world, where
her clothes were daily
news. Depending on their attitude towards clothes and fashion, people can
be divided in three groups: fashion slaves, spending all their money on the
latest clothes even if they donТt look good in them; fashion fans, who enjoy
wearing modern clothes but not obsessed by them and people who just donТt
care how they look. Personally I place myself between fashion fans and
people who donТt care how they look. Although I enjoy shopping very much and
like to try things on, especially when
I look good in them, I donТt spend much time choosing and buying clothes.
And of course I do it only when I really need something new to wear, and
not in order to kill time. My style and the range of clothes that I have
are defined by the activities I engage in. Work occupies most of my time
and therefore most of the clothes that I have corresponds with the dress
code, registered in the policy of our company.
According to the dress
code, an employee is not allowed to wear certain items of clothing to
work. For example, men are supposed to wear ties and business suits, and
nobody is allowed to wear jeans, except on Fridays. WomenТs clothes are
not supposed to be skin-tight, too short and too open. All of the shirts
are supposed to have collars. Clothes also canТt be too bright, the
colors should correspond to the corporate colors Ц dark blue and white.
