Cue Card Talk about an item of clothing you enjoy wearing
IELTS Cue Card # Talk about an item of clothing you enjoy wearing.
Talk about an item of clothing you enjoy wearing.
You should say:
- What that item is
- Where you got it from
- How it looks like
- And explain why you enjoy wearing it.
Clothes and accessories have come to represent more than just simple survival gear. They are a window into someone’s life, their personality, their wealth, their age and their experiences. We all have some clothes we enjoy wearing immensely and others that never get to see the light of day.
Speaking on the former, I will talk about my favorite hoodie. Right off the bat, when I mentioned hoodie it is obvious that this hoodie is going to be very comfortable and quite possibly oversized; well you would not be wrong in that assessment. But perhaps what you might not be able to deduce at first glance is the emotional value of this hoodie due to the memories it carries.
I received it back in 12th class during our graduation party as a gift from the school. I was endlessly curious as to what the shiny silver foil held. Out came a comfy back hoodie, it had my school logos on the sleeves and all of our batch’s names on the back forming a giant 2015. I was incredibly touched and distantly realized I might have torn up a little at the flood of memories in my mind.
I instantly put it on, and true enough, it was even more comfortable than it looked from the outside, for the inside had been lined in fleece. My mother will tell you how difficult it is to get that hoodie away from me once I have decided to wear it. The hood shape is simply perfect; even though it is oversized, it doesn’t slip into my face. The pockets can store more than what you would think possible, and why the sleeves sit snugly at my knuckles, just where I like them. But most importantly, I feel like I am enveloped in a big hug whenever I wear it, it reminds me of simpler days, of sunshine and laughter, of badminton on Sundays and swimming on Wednesdays. There is no doubt about it, that hoodie is my favourite piece of clothing.
