Talking about someone’s DRESS SENSE | English Vocabulary Lesson for Beginners & Advanced Level |


Did you see what she was wearing last night?
How many times have you said this before? Well, we all like to check out people when
you’re at a party or at a workplace or even when you just go to a mall. Well what are
the adjectives that you can use to describe someone’s dress sense or to describe someone’s
clothes or attire? Well that’s what we are going to learn in today’s lesson. Hi friends
welcome back it’s me Niharika and in today’s lesson we are gonna look at some adjectives
to describe someone’s dress sense. Now there are times when someone is dressed very attractively
but there are times when people are very poorly dressed. So people love to comment on someone’s
dress sense and if you do too then how do you do that? Well in English we have certain
adjectives that you can use to do so. So here I have some adjectives on the board let’s
understand how you can use them. The first one is ‘clingy’. Well clingy
is a perfect adjective that you can use for someone who is wearing very, very tight clothes.
Yes! There are some women who love to wear tight clothes where in the whole body shape
is pretty much visible. Do you think that looks good? No that looks awful. So if you
tend to wear clingy clothes, it’s time to change your wardrobe, right now. So clingy
can be used for a person who’s wearing very tight clothes. This so tight that the body
shape can be seen. Moving on to another adjective which is ‘ill-fitting’.
Now ill-fitting, now there are times when people end up wearing clothes which are not
of their size. For example, I wear the ‘S’ size, which is the small size. But if I end
up wearing a dress which is of a large size, oh! I’m gonna look so funny, yeah, I would
not look good. So which means that my dress is so ill-fitting. Well, have you seen Niharika,
she wears absolutely ill-fitting clothes. You would end up saying that. So if you spot
someone who is wearing and different size of clothes then you can use the adjective
ill-fitting. Moving on to another adjective which is ‘plunging
neckline’. Yes! Plunging neckline is used especially for women. Women who wear very
low-cut dress or tops. Now if someone at a party that you meet is where in the front
part of the dress is really low or deep then you can say, “Huh! Did you see her dress?”
“It has such a plunging neckline.” So plunging neckline is used for a deep or a
very low curve dress. All right let’s look at another active which
is ‘prim’. Now there are certain people who dress up really well. They’re just perfectly
dressed for an occasion. Like if you are going for a party then yes they are wearing a perfect
party dress. If they are at work then they are, they wear like perfect formal clothes.
So when you have to describe someone with this kind of dress sense and you can use the
adjective prim. Well Natasha always makes sure to dress very prim. So very prim, it
means that she is always dressed the best and she’s just bang on when it comes to her
dress sense. So prim is perfectly dressed. Perfectly and neatly dressed. Let’s have a look at another adjective which
is ‘roomy’. We all love wearing roomy clothes. So well if you look at the word the
first thing that will come to your mind is well roomy is used for spacious houses. Well
here we are talking about spacious clothes, so which means some clothes that we all love
to wear, which are like really loose and very comfortable like you feel so nice wearing
loose clothes at times but yeah well tend to avoid it if you were stepping out of the
house. If you’re in your house wearing loose clothes, roomy clothes then that’s okay. So
there are people who wear roomy pants which are like really loose which are like falling
off so that’s roomy pants and people who tend to wear very loose and comfortable clothes
will use this adjective for them. Okay! Let’s see which is the next adjective
that I have for you, it’s ‘skimpy’. Now skimpy is pretty much similar to this adjective
which is clingy. Well skimpy is also used for tight-fitting clothes, oh! You can’t breathe.
The t-shirt is so tight. But skimpy is not just for tight clothes but also for the clothes
that show off too much of skin. Well there are so many women who love to do that, they
love wearing skimpy clothes, where they can show off their skin, they can show off their
body and the clothes are really tight and tiny, okay? So use this adjective for tight,
tiny clothes and the clothes that show off too much of skin, alright? Moving on to the next adjective which is ‘threadbare’.
Now there are certain clothes that we just loved way too much, we don’t want to give
it away, we keep it, we keep wearing it every now and then and then now the clothes are
so old that they’re all tattered or they have holes in it, they have become so thin. So
such kind of clothes can be described as threadbare. So if you know someone who’s always dressed
and threadbare clothes then use this adjective. Oh my God! Look at your clothes, there are
so threadbare. So threadbare is like old tattered clothes. Okay, the next adjective is ‘frumpy’.
Well someone who is so old-fashioned or their dress sense is so boring and it’s so unattractive
then a great adjective to use is frumpy. Well my friend John, his dress sense is so frumpy.
So frumpy is an adjective that can be used for someone who doesn’t dress too well, yeah
poorly dressed. And then the next adjective that I have for
you is ‘over-dressed’. Does that happen to you? Well it happens, it has happened to
me before. So I went out for this formal gathering and I was so overdressed like I thought it’s
a big party, I didn’t know it’s just a very small formal gathering. I thought it’s like
a big party, with so many people and I saw and I realized that I am so overdressed. So
at times when you’re not supposed to but, you end up dressing in a very elaborate way,
in a very dressy manner, then you are overdressed for the occasion. Okay so to dress elaborately. And then the opposite to this adjective is
another adjective which is ‘under-dressed’. There are also times when you end up going
for an occasion and when you look around you realize that, wow, everybody is dressed so
well, so attractively and look at me, I am so embarrassed. So if you are not dressed
well for an occasion, like you’re not dressed formally probably for a formal event that
you’re attending you are like wearing these tattered pants and a loose t-shirt of course
you’re under-dressed. So when you realize that, well this is a great adjective to use.
So it’s completely opposite to over-dressed, over-dressed, under-dressed is again something
like poorly dressed or when you are not dressed right for an occasion. All right so go ahead use these adjectives
in your conversation the next time you’re checking out someone and you want to pass
a comment then use one of these adjectives and I’ll be back very soon with a new lesson
until then you take care.
