Shopping is one of the favourite activities of many women. Of course, we don’t mean purchasing necessities like food or health cosmetics but clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories of which we can never have enough. Shopping as an activity itself is a way of relaxing, calming down or a kind of hobby for some people. It is not just all about the clothes which are very pleasant to purchase or collect, it is also about the feeling of joy and excitement when getting them. 

Clothing is really a part of everyone’s first impression and it has become a necessity which complements the whole look of our physical appearance. Taste in clothing is subject to constant changes and, like all the social phenomena, it is persistently evolving with time. Nowadays, people try to keep up with fashion, always combining beauty trends with personal experiments.

Due to the fact that clothing and shopping have become very popular all around the world we have decided to present you with useful vocabulary related to that!

 

Women’s clothing

Setting up rules for dressing is harder for women than for men. Women’s wear is constantly changing according to fashion. Even though there are a few rules of clothing for special occasions, events or just everyday life, everything depends on each woman’s taste. Women’s wear has much more variety, options and matching possibilities. The clothing style of each woman should be appropriate for her age, hair colour, skin, height and overall body shape.

Men’s clothing

Women’s fashion changes quite often, but for men’s fashion, the style remains quite still, persistent and classy. The fashion of men’s wear stays almost the same for a few years, changing only in tiny little things that are rarely noticeable. Today it is harder to talk about how properly men should dress. Suits are worn less often than in the past and a majority of young men would rather wear more casual clothes.

Abrigo –> coat
