Dear Ann, Thank you for your letter. It was very interesting to read about young people in Great Britain. And learn that we are not very different. Ukrainian teenagers are also worried about what they wear. Clothes become an attribute of self- realization and express teens’ personalities.
Frankly speaking, I am not a trendy girl, that’s why I do not reject the importance to keep up with the fashion. I like the latest trend. Its diversity helps to find something that corresponds to your individual style. I like that a middle-aged lady and a teenage girl can look stylish appropriately to their age and status.
To tell the truth, I prefer the casual style. I like to wear good and comfortable things. I buy clothes in different places, even on the internet. Usually my mother and sister accompany me . Sometimes their pieces of advice are quite useful. I understand your desire to dress in design clothes though your parents’ position to buy cheaper things is reasonable as well.
To sum up, I dare to give you several ideas about shopping. I usually visit stores that sell stock. The items are stylish and fashionable and you can get them cheaper. If you insist on hot fashionable things try online shopping. Visiting websites of famous designers, you will find that buying things online or in outlets is cheaper than in boutiques. And do remember that though the style is the man, the man is not only the style. Take care, Julia
