IELTS Speaking Task # Cue Card

Describe a common dress that females in your country wear.
You should say:

  • what type of dress it is
  • what it looks like
  • is it common in other countries

and explain whether you like this dress or not.


Sarees are pretty common attire for the women in India. As a matter of fact, India is a land of traditions and according to our ancestors, women generally wore cover up clothes like sarees and suits which is a symbol of Indian cultural values. There are 29 states in my country and each state has different types of sarees available and the material depends upon the climatic conditions of that state. A traditional saree is more than just a piece of clothing as it is said to accentuate women’s beauty and elegance.

Saree is a classic long piece of unstitched fabric draped by women. It is passed down through generations in our country. In fact, there are nearly 50 ways in which one can drape a saree and it looks graceful in each way. The Indian women consider saree to be one of the most practical dress and they hardly take five minutes to drape it.

Though saree is not a common dress in other countries, western women nowadays like to wear it occasionally as they believe it highlights the curves of the body and helps conceal the flaws as well. Many lightweight and printed sarees are gaining popularity in the international market these days and has become a subject of appreciation for worldwide designers.

I personally admire and choose to wear a saree on special occasions as they are available in different materials and designs. Adding a saree to one’s collection adds a sweet spot to a women’s wardrobe. Though I don’t own a saree of my own, I consider my mother’s saree collection to be a special treasure as they have a vintage touch to it which makes them all the more beautiful and exquisite.
