IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.
Describe a person you know who dresses well.
You should say:
- who this person is
- what kinds of clothes this person likes to wear
- how you know this person
and explain why you think this person dresses well.
This is indeed an interesting topic to talk about. As soon as I looked at this candidate task card, several well-groomed people’s faces crossed my mind. But for this cue card topic, I would like to talk about my cousin Helen who, in my opinion, has the best dressing senses. As she is in the fashion industry, she dresses quite fashionably. However, she never wears something extravagant or offensive to the family members.
Helen is my cousin and she is 3 years older than I am. She did her graduation in Fashion Technology and has been working in a reputed fashion house for the last 3 years. She had a distinguishing fashion sense from her childhood and she is always quite careful about the way she dresses.
She does not have any defined dressing preferences. She rather chose to dress based on the weather, temperature and the occasions or events she attends to. She is quite a beautiful lady with a great sense of humour and her distinctive dressing styles make her stay out-of-the-crowd. As far as I have seen her, she likes to wear comfortable dresses but those dresses always have the touch of some sort of fashionable designs. She mostly wears cotton and light dresses during the summer. In winter, she wears jeans, long overcoats and beautiful hats. Her preferences of shoes are quite remarkable and I seek her advice every time I need to purchase shoes for me or whenever I am confused what to wear in an occasion or a party.
I believe expensive dresses do not always make someone fashionable or careful about the ways s/he dresses! Helen is a perfect example of a person who can reflect a positive fashion sense even in a very simple dress. She does not wear gaudy and very colourful dresses and I have hardly seen others complain about the way she maintains her fashion and grooming. But you know there are always some people who like to comment about the ways other dresses, and I do not consider their remarks very important!!!
I know her from my early childhood as she is my cousin. She is very close to me and she often visits our house. She lives in a different town now but she used to live in our neighbourhood. I went to her office twice and I was astonished seeing her working with many renowned fashion designers in our country.
The reason I preferred her as a well-groomed person for this cue card topic is because she always wears neat and clean dresses and never wears something that contradicts the conventional dress code of an event. She always gives the weather condition a priority while choosing her clothes. She will give people an aura of tranquillity and impression of a dandy person and this is quite unique about her. I have talked to her many times about fashion and costume, and in my opinion, she is quite knowledgeable about these aspects. She values the importance of traditional dresses and whenever she wears an exotic dress, she makes sure it does not look offensive to the family members or to others. I would say this is a great accomplishment for a fashion designer and a person who respects her own tradition and culture.
