1.What’s the difference between the dressing style of young people and that of old people?

There is quite a large difference between the dressing style of young people and that of old people. Old people are often more sensible with their dressing style. Old people will wear clothes that are functional and suitable to their environment. For example, they will dress in thick and warm clothes during the winter. Old people care less about style and instead dress in a respectful and sensible manner. In contrast to this, most young people dictate their dress style by what is fashionable. Therefore, young people will wear the latest and trendiest clothes regardless if they are sensible for the weather or not.

2. Do the people living in south China(warmer) wear difference clothes from the people living in the north(colder)?

There is a dramatic difference between the types of clothes people wear living in the south of China and those worn by people living in the north of China. China is a very large country and therefore there are quite large environmental differences between the north and the south. The north of China can be very cold and the south of China can be very warm, and thus the dressing style between the regions is very different. In the north people normally wear much warmer clothing that protects them from the cold weather. In the south of China, people do not have to worry about the cold so they wear a variety of light and breezy clothing.

3. Do you think students like to wear uniforms?

I think there are mixed opinions on whether students like to wear uniforms. Some students do not like to wear uniforms as they think choosing their own clothing is a fun way for them to express themselves. This is a very common opinion in very individualistic countries such as the United States of America where individual expression is culturally very important. However, some students would rather wear uniforms as they find the idea of choosing their own clothing every day to be stressful and distracting from their education. Having a uniform allows students to come into school and study without having to worry about what clothes they are going to wear.

4. When do people wear formal clothes?

There are many different occasions on which people wear formal clothes. There are many professions which require people to wear formal clothes. For example, businessmen are expected to dress nicely in formal suits, as are some civil servants and politicians. People may also wear formal clothes for certain special occasions such as weddings or funerals. These are occasions where people want to show their respect so it is important to wear formal clothes. For older people, often wearing formal clothes on a day to day basis was quite normal. However, nowadays people only wear formal clothes for special occasions or certain reasons.
