What kinds of clothes do you usually wear?
Primarily jeans, t-shirts, hoodies, sneakers, etc. I don’t like wearing anything outlandish because I don’t like drawing attention, since I’m not a social butterfly, but I don’t go for a conventional look, either.
Do people around you also wear the same type of clothes?
We are living in a multicultural society so people have a multiple choice of everything,
from what they eat, what they say to what they wear. Therefore, it is hard to say people around me also wear the same kind of clothes.
What kinds of clothes do other people wear?
I guess it depends on each person’s personality. For example, a woman who is soft-spoken and likes to daydream usually gravitates towards frilly pieces like lace and ruffles. A culture loving person tends to dress more urban and sporty than most fashionistas.
Almost all of Vietnamese schools require students to wear uniforms and there will be no exception. Teachers suppose that wearing a uniform is a badge of pride, and creates an identity for a school and is an important part of being a school student.
Do you think clothes are important to people? (Why?/Why not?)
Of course I would say yes. Clothing is a basic human need. For most people, clothing gives us protection from the weather. While for some people, clothing defines their fashion sense and creativity and they use it as a way to express their personality.
Do you prefer to wear formal or informal clothes?
I would choose informal clothes since being creative; mixing and matching what I already have; and being able to come up with a new look after that is a huge satisfaction for me. Formal clothing is often set in its own way and looks quite conservative to me.
Do/did you wear the same clothes at school and at home?
Oh, definitely not. I always wore the school uniforms which was a blue jacket with a white shirt. They were very simple and boring. So when I reached home, I intended to put on my favorite outfits.
Will you change your clothes when you go home today?
Oh, yes. The formal clothes really make me nervous so after I go home later, I’ll take them off and change my sweatshirts.
Did you have any special clothes to wear when you were a child? Did you like them?
Yes, when I was a child, I needed to wear a uniform at school from primary school all the way to the very last year of high school, which is an institution, so I believed my parents had to follow this tradition. However, I really couldn’t stand the school uniform because the clothes were a bit too old-fashioned; in addition, sometimes I was reluctant to wear them because they were too large. I doubted why they couldn’t be a bit more trendy and colorful like the ones in other countries, like Japan and Australia.
