Fantastic level 120 Writing

Here is an example of excellent writing from a student in one of my classes. 

"How important is fashion to you in your life?"

To be honest, actually fashion is not so important for me and it is not a theme that I like to discuss. Usually I like comfortable and normal clothes. I prefer to use plain shirts, jeans and shoes in day-to-day. I think that jeans and t-shirts will always be in style, but I don’t like tights pants.

Of course, when I go to specials events, like weddings, I dress up and use more formals and appropriated clothes like suits. People in my country normally go to parties using casual clothes. In the last years, Brazilians designers are creating one own style that is interesting, but like in others countries, normal people won’t wear many of these fashion clothes because they are inappropriate for use in the street.

I note differences between Canadian and Brazilian fashion. Considering the season and gender as criteria, in the summer Brazilians women use bikinis smaller than Canadian women on the beach. Men, basically, use similar clothes, like T-shirts, shorts and sandals. Still, Brazilians men style is not as formal as Canadian’s style.
