Sample Answer 1
Well, l’d like to talk about the uniform I wear for my current job. According to the rules of my company, wear this uniform 4 days a week, except for Casual Friday. It comes in three pieces, a white blouse a black suit and a black skirt. From the touch of it, l can tell it was made from polyester. So even though it’s not really comfortable when I am in it, it doesn’t wrinkle easily so don’t need to iron it after washing.
The part I like most about it is that its design and cut really flatter us. Our Human Resources manager bought them online. Of course, after asking for our opinions. When we received them, we felt really excited to try them on. Even though they were not tailor-made, they didn’t look too bad Well, maybe it was also because we didn’t expect too much I used to hate wearing uniforms, coz I thought they covered up our uniqueness.
However, now, I would say I kind of enjoying wearing them. For one thing, l don’t need to struggle about what to wear every morning so that I can sleep several minutes more. It saved me a fortune too. Every time I want to buy a new outfit it would occur to me that I don’t have too many chances to wear it because most of the time, l will be wearing the uniform. On the other hand, now I think uniforms can also unite people together and enhance team work spirit, it gives me a sense of belonging.
Sample Answer 2
The uniform I would like to describe is the one I wore in high school. This uniform was particularly memorable because it was completely different from the tracksuit uniforms of other schools. It was more like a formal suit.
The uniform consisted of a navy-blue blazer, matching trousers, and a white shirt. During my high school years, I would wear this uniform almost every day, except for holidays and weekends.
For special school events or important occasions, such as the start of a semester or the flag-raising ceremony every Monday, we were also required to attend in this uniform with a red tie.
I remember my school paid for our uniforms. When I was about to enter high school, we were required to go to the school’s uniform shop to choose the right size. I was really excited when I saw myself in this uniform in the mirror because it was the first time I had everworn a uniform like that.
I’d say this uniform was an important part of my high school life. Although I used to complain about it being too serious and not comfortable enough, looking back, I am grateful for the discipline and professionalism it brought to me. Every time I wore it, l felt like I was not just a student, but a person who was learning how to be a professional.
Actually, I still keep this uniform at home. Even though I don’t really wear it anymore, every time I see it, it reminds me of the days I spent with my friends years ago.
