  做学生做到某个阶段,就会发现身边的小伙伴们开始买起了“正装”,有招聘会的时候,满宿舍走廊更是黑压压的一片。不光是求职的时候需要穿得很formal哇,什么辩论会啊,学生会活动啊,或者模拟联合国啥的,都不能穿一身T恤牛仔就上了。所以对于My favorite piece of clothing这么一件人手必备的物件,应该不算难描述吧:

  My favorite piece of clothing is a casual suit I got online.

  It’s well designed and it’s quite unique, I mean, the right and left sides are not even, with different patterns and colors. The right side of the suit is made of striped fabric in grey and white, and the left side is pure blue. And it’s just long enough to cover my hips, and the sleeves are this long, to my elbow.

  I look pretty good in that suit, I mean, it really brings out/shows off my figure, I look thinner and taller. Plus, blue is really my color, it makes my complexion much brighter.

  Um… the fabric is quite soft, but not sloppy. So it’s super comfortable to wear, and it breathes well, I could wear it in summer without feeling hot. Actually, I could wear this suit in three seasons, I mean, in the rainy days during summer, I could just throw it on, ‘cause the jacket matches most of my dresses. In spring and autumn when the temperature difference is pretty huge between the daytime and evening, I usually wear this to keep warm.

  And there are different ways to wear it. I could button it up, to make it more formal, or I could just wear it like a cape, which looks pretty fashionable.

  Besides, it’s suitable on various occasions, when I go out in this suit, I could wear high heels, and I also won’t look weird in sneakers.

  The best part is, I got it at a super reasonable price. Such a versatile suit only cost me less than 200 RMB. So you see, it’s quite economical.
