Model Answer 1:

I am more like a casual person when it comes to dresses. Of course, different people have different ideas about being casual. But, as far as I am concerned, my idea of being casual is to wear blue jeans and a light t-shirt with a collar, which also happens to be my favourite dress, by the way. So, today I would like to talk about this favourite dress of mine which I like to wear, well, pretty much all the times.

Now, of course, just because I said that I like to wear it all the times, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I do wear it all the times. Rather, I meant to say that I like to wear this favourite dress of mine as often as I could unless, of course, there is any bar or restriction on wearing them. So, if you ask me when precisely I like to wear them, I would say that I like to wear them when I am visiting any friend’s place, doing my groceries and shopping,  going to a stadium to enjoy a good game or picking up my little nephew from his elementary school. Besides, I like to wear them even when I am going to attend a party, casual or not, at some restaurants or party centres. So, I guess, it is fair to say that I wear them every day unless I am attending a formal meeting with my boss at my work, and other than that meeting thing, I always go to the work in my blue jeans and light colour t-shirt. 

Anyway, this particular dress is so special to me, primarily because they are easy to wear and keep me relaxed and comfortable in all kinds of weather unless, of course, it is too cold outside. I prefer them so badly also because I don’t really have to try too hard to keep them reasonably clean and tidy, no matter what I do or where I go. Finally, I find them so special because I don’t really have to worry about wasting my time in ironing them even when I go outside.


Sample Answer 2:

I like to wear T-shirts. This is my favourite dress and I prefer to have it almost all the times of the day or while attending an event or going to my college classes. I have been using this type of dress for a long time and it has become my trademark that I will wear a T-shirt even for a formal occasion. This cue card task appears smart and I am enjoying to answer it.

I usually wear T-shirts when I am out of the home. There are people who like to be formal in their dress code. But I am a bit different from them. I do not like to wear shirts or formal pants or any formal attire. Rather I prefer to have T-shirts and jeans which give me comforts. In fact, I feel uncomfortable with the other types of dresses. So, whenever I need to move out for any of my tasks, I wear T-shirts.

Frequently I wear T-shirts to meet my purposes. Actually, this has become a fashion for me and I cannot do without a T-shirt. When I move to my college class early in the morning, I wear it. If someone invites me in the evening to attend any party, I need a T-shirt for me. Further, when I am out of home for any other purposes like meeting my relatives, friends, or for any other purposes, I will be seen wearing a T-shirt. I wear it round the week.

Wearing a T-shirt is special to me for many reasons. The most important thing is the comfortability. A T-shirt is the most comfortable dress in the entire world. They are available in various colour and design. The fabrics are of a high standard and easy to clean. For all the reasons, the T-shirt is my favourite dress.
