Changing Fashions

Do you like to follow fashion? How do you dress for a special occasion? Many people like to dress like their favourite singer or actor. Others like to wear the jersey relating to their favourite sports team.

In the past, people dressed very differently to how we dress today. Of course, fashions and styles are always changing but there are other reasons why we dress the way we do now. They include a broader range of available fabrics and changing social attitudes.
