Many people, mostly women, are interested in fashion. Fashion is the style of dress or behaviour that is common or popular at a certain time. New styles, material, shapes and patterns appear, last for a certain time, disappear and later come back a little bit changed. Many young people are fashion-conscious and try to follow the latest trends in fashion, watching fashion shows and reading fashion magazines.

Fashion styles change often. When mini-skirts fist came into fashion, women said they would never wear them. But in the 1960s, women started to shorten their skirts and mini-skirts were very popular for a long period. Narrow trousers were replaced by wide trousers, and flat shoes by high-heeled shoes (platforms). Later women realized that longer skirts are more practical and narrow trousers are sexier. But wide trousers have made a comeback and, after being unfashionable for a long time, are fashionable and popular again.

The materials used are important and each fabric has its own special qualities. Almost everything our grandparents used to wear was made of canvas, then cotton, but later those textiles were replaced by synthetic fibres. People return to cotton for its natural qualities, while silk blouses and shirts are appropriate for special occasions. T-shirts used to all be 100% cotton, but today many include spandex.

A person´s choice of suitable clothing is also influenced by climate and weather. In colder countries, people prefer to wear clothes which protect their body from the cold. They usually wear fur coats, boots and fur caps in winter. In hot countries, people put on light clothes, use material which allow sweat to evaporate and cool their bodies. Straw hats protect their heads against the sun´s rays.

Casual clothes are worn for everyday purposes. People working in banks, and offices are usually more dressed up: men in suits, shirts in different colours, ties and suitable shoes, mostly black or brown leather. Women wear suits too, fashionable tops or blouses, various accessories and leather shoes. For special occasion, we usually put on something more formal: long dresses or gowns for the ladies; and tuxedos, dinner jackets, bowties and patent leather shoes for the men. Official ceremonies require that people wear gowns of robes, long loose usually black outer garments worn by judges, lawyers, and members of universities.

Most people prefer buying clothes in shops because if they suit them and fit, they just pay and leave. Some women like clothes made by dressmakers or they make them themselves. If men need suits or coats, they ask tailors to make these outer garments for them.

Coats and other clothing made of fur are very expensive, and in the past people wore furs to show that they were rich. In many countries today, however, many people think that it is cruel to kill animals for their fur and choose to wear fake fur instead.

Colours play an important role in fashion. White is a typical colour for babies to wear when they are christened, and brides dress in white for church weddings because white represents purity and virginity. In some old stories and films, especially westerns, the good guy always wears white, and the bad guy wears black. A baby´s sex is sometimes distinguished by colours: little girls are dressed in pink and red, while little boys are in blue or light-green. Today, people like to have a free choice.

Some colours suit some people more than others so people can be classified by the colours they wear:”cold” and “warm”. While cold types prefer darker colours (grey, navy blue, grey-blue, black, etc.), brighter colours are suitable for warm types (spring and autumn types: beige, cream white, light-blue, brown, etc.). Some people choose colours according to their current mood. When they are happy, the colours are bright and light, but when they are sad or bad-tempered, the colours are dark.

OdoslaťPredmet: problems of the young   Po august 02, 2010 10:54 pm

Youth has always been regarded to be the nicest period of human lives. It is the period when young people can be carefree without the burden of responsibility which brings the parenthood or daily winning of one’s bread. But youth, seemingly a free time of life, also brings some specific problems:
It is the period of life when people do the most important decisions that can have fatal consequences for their future family and career. This decisions, and also the difficult period of early parenthood or professional career, following abruptly the carefree period of early youth, demands personal maturity. Immature parenthood can spoil lives of at least three people. It is a serious problem of the young, just like the problem of unemployment or the specific drug problem.
The pressure on the young to get to a university is very high too. It is difficult these times, as the competition is very tough and, unfortunately, not always fair. Bullying is also a problem of the children at our schools. Thanks to enlightment our bullies do not openly annoy the physically handicapped. But many young people do not know, that there can be a lot of psychical handicaps, and also don’t realize how deep their remarks, jokes or violence can psychically mark the victim. Another problem of young people, and one of the most typical ones, is the generation gap. The best way to describe the generation gap is to aim at the parents-children relationship. The elder criticize the way how the young people dress and behave, and they often say, that they have no sense of responsibility today. The young have they own values, which their parents not always like: they are sometimes against their child’s fashion, friends and girl/boyfriends, hobbies, music, idols, lifestyle and other things their child appreciates so much. Another point of misunderstanding is security. The parents are more afraid of their child as the teenager of himself and don’t allow him to go where he would love to, or until he wants to. They think up various catastrophic scenarios of what could happen to their beloved offspring. Sometimes this problem can be solved by explaining the own fears within the family, but mostly the parents just give orders and prohibitions and the good relationship between them and their child is broken. It is obviously necessary that there should be more comprehension on both sides.

I think the young should remember that the older have gained greater life experiences and they just try to give these to us, hoping it will help us in our future life. On the other hand, the older shouldn’t assume that they know best for the simple reason that they have been around a little longer. The parents should also remember how they used to be when they were young. That in their young times, they argued with parents about clothing, hair cut and tattoo too. And they should realize that the development of their child, of all young people, of the world, is natural, just like the child’s need for independence. It is important, that they realize, they can’t rule our life. They have to release us to the real world and hope, that they brought us up well and that we will manage our lives good.
