Imagine that you are doing a project on what clothing brands are popular among teenagers in Zetland. You have found some data on the subject – the results of the opinion polls (see the table below).
Comment on the data in the table and give your opinion on the subject of the project.
The opinion poll question:
Which clothing brand among the following is your favourite or most preferred?
Number of teenagers (%)
Write 200-250 words.
Use the following plan:
– make an opening statement on the subject of the project;
– select and report 2–3 facts;
– make 1–2 comparisons where relevant and give your comments;
– outline a problem that can arise with following fashion trends and suggest a way of solving it;
– conclude by giving and explaining your opinion on the role of fashion in a teenager’s life.
Following fashion trends may lead to fashion addiction.
If you find yourself scrolling through online shops, try putting items in your basket but don’t buy them (immediately). Browse but don't buy.
If you want to curb your fashion addiction (serious fashion obsession), commit to not buying any new clothes for some time and focus on enjoying what you already have.
It is advisable that people with shopping problems shouldn’t hang out in stores or malls “just to kill time” or “to pass an afternoon.”
Avoid flash sale ads/sales.
Practise mindful spending.
Try not 'to shop your emotions'.
Following fashion trends can make you look weird/ can lead to poor body image.
You should keep some sense of critical thinking regarding fashion trends in order to decide whether the fashion trends really make you look better or not.
Following fashion trends may lead to (teens') low self-esteem since some (teenagers) find it unaffordable to get whatever stylish clothes or shoes they desire.
Sort out your wardrobe, create a wish list, and spend time creating new ways of wearing what you already own.
