2020年12月26日雅思写作范文：In many countries, people wear more western-style clothes(suits and jeans) than their traditional clothes. Why? Is it a positive or negative development?在许多国家/地区，人们穿的西式衣服（西服和牛仔裤）比传统衣服要多。为什么？是积极的还是消极的发展？
In recent decades, Western clothes such as jeans, suits and shirts have become more and more popular in fashion culture in many countries around the world. Although some opinions state that this trend might challenge the preservation problem of traditional clothes, this development needs to be carefully considered as a positive change due to various advantages.
There are a number of reasons leading to this fashion trend. First, the Western fashion seems to have more conveniences in usage when compared to the traditional costumes.For example, to emphasize the formality of the traditional clothes, these clothes are usually designed with varieties of details which could possibly interrupt users when they are working, studying or practicing exercises.
With sweeping trend of globalization, western clothing styles have widely conquered the hearts and closets of people all over the world, especially suits and jeans which have found their place in the wardrobes of the rich and the poor, celebrities and common people. Hence, it is imperative that we should analyze possible reasons giving rise to(导致) this phenomenon objectively and figure out its boons as well as banes.
From my own perspective, the causes of this phenomenon are manifold. Although environmental changes can impose drastic effects, trade causes the quickest shifts in a culture’s clothing styles. The prevalence(流行=popularity) of western styles throughout the world indicates the globaldominance(主导) of western trade. Meanwhile,cultural currents flowing through Europe also facilitate(便利) the spread of this clothing style. People in developing countries wished to catch up with and compete with the West and they believed that this required them to abandon many of their old traditions in favor of the new industries and styles that made the West successful. And the shift from traditional wear to western attire(服装)bears practical and conceptual reasons as well. For example, jeans are thick, strong and long lasting. They require little maintenance and anybody will wear for its durability. Suits are prone to(倾向于)be taken as a symbol of elite(精英).
