Clothes & Fashion
T-shirts are the most popular clothes. We all have too many t-shirts in our closets.
Men and women can wear shirts and trousers but skirts and blouses are usually worn only by women. Men usually wear blazers with a shirt and a tie but you can also wear a blazer with casual clothes like a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
Jumpers and coats are very popular in winter. There are many patterns and they are made in many different fabrics. Teenagers usually prefer hoodies.
Some people like going to bed in their underwear but in winter, most people prefer to wear pijamas. They are so hot!

There are many types of underwear, both for men and women. Some men prefer boxers and others prefers slips.
Among women, knickers (UK) or panties (USA) seem more popular than thongs. Anyway, it is just a matter of preference.
Nowadays, some people, especially young people and hipsters, don’t wear socks. It looks like a very uncomfortable trend.

Shoes are not only necessary but they are also a luxurious item. Many people, both men and women, like collecting different kinds of shoes.
Among men, sneakers (USA) or trainers (UK) are more popular although sometimes you can’t choose and you have to wear shoes in your job. For women, high heels are very popular too but they don’t look very comfortable. Some women like wearing high heels to look fantastic but they also keep a pair of ballerinas in their purse in case their feet need a rest.
After a long day working and walking, we all like wearing slippers at home.
Shoes can be different depending on the time of the year. In winter, boots are very popular because they protect you from rain and snow. In summer, people like wearing sandals and flip flops when you go the beach or the swimming-pool.

Jewelry can be very expensive when it is made o gold or silver but, nowadays, it is more common to wear faux jewelry (bisutería), which is cheaper.
Watches are the most popular for both men and women. Nowadays, we even have smartwatches that allow you to stay connected to your friends and family and can work as a smartphone.
Although women usually wear more and better jewelry, earrings and bracelets are also common for some men, especially rock stars.
Rings are the most especial of them all and many people dream of the day they will get their wedding ring, the traditional gift for your spouse.
Accessories are very personal. Some people don’t wear any but others like wearing many accessories to define their unique style.
Men usually wear ties if they work in an office and bow ties if they go to an elegant party. Some people also wear hats but it was more popular in the past. Teenagers prefer caps to hats and most of them wear a backpack to school.
In winter, we usually wear a soft hat made of wool, a scarf and some gloves in the coldest days.
