Vocabulary Tricks Part 22: Fashion

Fashion never remains static. It keeps on changing with time. Dressing well makes our life zestful. People wear presentable dress according to the occasion. Women's clothing has also become freer and revealing.
Fashion designing is a lucrative profession these days. Fashion designers hire models to boost sales of their designer clothes. People also love to flaunt their branded dresses. So, ingenious fashion designers earn a lot these days.
However, we should keep in mind that fashion should not become an obsession. We should remember that excess of everything is bad. It is not bad to be dignified and simple.
