Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Most people believe that it's important to look nice. However, some people say that we place too much importance on appearance and fashion. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that looking nice is important, whereas others believe we pay too much attention to it.
I think that to look nice is important. First of all, it makes a good first impression. A person is more confident if he knows he or she looks good. Second, it makes all our social interactions easier because people like us more if we are dressed well or look beautiful.
At the same time, there are people who believe that we are too obsessed with our appearance. We spend too much time and money following fashion whereas those resources would be better spent elsewhere. Looks should not play that big a role in our lives.
In my opinion, these people definitely have a point. Spending too much time and money on trying to be fashionable seems wasteful. However, we cannot disregard our appearance completely. People like to be surrounded by those who are dressed well, more than those who are not, and if we want to get along with them, we should respect that.
In conclusion, I would like to say that even though we should not spend too much time on trying to look fashionable, we should take some time to make sure we look nice and are pleasant to be around.
