Question: How important is fashion to you? Do you pay any attention to how people dress?

Answers:

- It is important to keep up with the latest fashion to show others you're a modern person;
- "Fashion" is just an industry that makes billions of money;
- I wear what I feel comfortable in, and I don't really care about what people think about my way of dressing;
- I identified myself with the girl from "The devil wears Prada" movie, in the beginning of the story, when she didn't know anything about the fashion world :D

Now it's your turn!

I am like Lady Gaga with my unconventional sense of fashion but in work environments I am mostly classic.

I'm fashion especially in my job... here I'm always well dressed with shirts long sleeve, tie and pants I think is more usual in my work environment.
Hm.. fashion to me is important, but it's not in the ranking of the most important things. We, creative people, can invent another fashion, and we can call that by our own fashion. :D
HI Everyone,

At my age I am not very concerned about the latest in fashion and my main considerations, in assending order, for selecting my clothing are, "Is it: presentable, appropriate for the occassion, clean, and comfortable. If others do not like what I am wearing, well, "Frankly My Dear, I don't give a damn!" (To quote Rett Butler in the movie Gone With the Wind.) So if you happen to see a fat old fuddy-duddy gringo with several cameras who looks happy, but is a major fashion disaster it may very well be me. :lol:

Fuddy-duddy = Idiom meaning "An old fashioned person, especially when it comes to dress, or mannerisms."
Being sincere, I don't care with the latest fashion trends.

When I have gone to my closet to choose my clothes, whether to go to the work or to hang out with friends, what I really care is if the clothes fits to its occasion.

See you.

Rguimaraesc,

If I may, I would like to suggest the following rewrite, and ask you to determine why I made the changes, if you do not understand why, then I will explain them to you.

Being completely sincere, I don't care about the latest fashion trends.

When I go to my closet to choose my clothes, either to go to work or just hang out with friends all I really care about is if the clothes are appropriate for the occasion.

To help your studies please look up the definations of the following words: either, whether, and appropriate.

Thanks for the suggestions Bill.

Well, let me see if I have understood your modifications:

- "Completely". Emphasis?
- On the second phrase, it was really my mistake. It's a routine, so I have to use Simple Present. I was thinking about something that I did today which affected my life, but it's a routine. Sometimes Present Perfect is a thorn in my side.
- About the use of "either"... I can't use "whether" because I don't any have doubts about which option I'm going to choose. Is it right?
- Fits does not fit well for this example? :)

Renato,
All your analysis are spot on except the either / whether question. Either is used to indicate exactly two choices of which only one can be chosen, while whether is technically correct but it is archaic in this contex.

Very good work.
I don't mind be or not to be 'fashion'. I like wearing clothes make me feel good and comfortable. I usually wear dresses, t-shirts, long skirts... because I am thin. I think we must wear us according with place but nothing extraordinary.
I think it's important to be well-dressed, but I don't like "fashion" as a subtitle... I mean, fashion concepts are most times ephemeral, and people tend to follow it as a life rule.

I don't really care if I'm following "fashion" specially, but I think people must dress well and in a way they feel good.

Ok, I just don't know if fashion is soo important to me. I don't know much about fashion brands, or about the latest collections, maybe 'cause I have no money to purchase them, hahaha, but I think that beautiful and comfortable clothes are enough.
Everyone has to have a sense of what is good or not in your body and fashion helps it, but for me, fashion is not the most important thing!
