TASK 2: Young people are now spending more and more time and money following fashion trends. What is your opinion? Is this a positive or negative development?
Fashion is a defining characteristic of many cultures around the world. It is therefore a current trend that the younger generations are devoting more of their free time and income to the most current fashion vogue. This essay will discuss the features and implications of this modern phenomenon.
Although the youths have always been the harbingers of the latest trends throughout history, today they are extremely focused on how they look and how they are perceived by their peers, especially on social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In the past, people had only to be concerned about how a limited pool of acquaintances see them, but now social media gives people an electronic reach to thousands of people that they do not even know, and will never meet. Globalization has also lowered the price of many fashionable items that are easily attainable. Although there is nothing inherently wrong with enjoying fashion and making an effort to look trendy and presentable, problems do arise when an obsession with fashion and the thoughts of others take over. The next paragraph will discuss the negative sides of this modern development.
In the past, children and young people occupied their time on wholesome activities with friends and family. These days, however, teenagers and young adults seem to have forgotten their roots and decided to turn their perspective toward themselves. In the West, divorce rates have skyrocketed, the family unit is dissolving, and cases of anxiety and mental unwellness have increased. It is now common to see families physically seated together in the same root, yet mentally and emotionally disengaged with one another because they are all preoccupied with their smartphones. The more people are concerned about how they look and the more they worry about what people on social media think about them, the further they move away from their real social relationships.
To conclude, fashion is an important part of society and cultures. It allows people to express themselves in a fun and colorful manner. Yet, there are serious social implications that arise when people put too much of their personality into trendy clothes and activities. Perhaps it would be beneficial for society to move back to viewing families as the primary focus rather than fashion and social media trends.
