  下面介绍2014年英语专四作文预测押题:追随时尚,希望考生认真复习,英语专四考试顺利。
  Topic 24: Fashion is difficult to follow, and some people argue that we should not follow it. They think that we should dress what we like and feel comfortable. Do you agree or disagree?
  解析:
  支持追随潮流 (following fashion)的观点:
  时装是自我表达( a means of self-expression)的一种休现,表现人的性格和喜好(reflect one's personality or likes),让人们在生活中体验不同角色(allow people to try on many roles in life),同时使世界更加丰富多彩(diversity and variety of the world in which we live);
  新时代的时尚(fashion in the new era)并不一定意味着高消费,也并非一定穿某种款式的衣服才算时尚;
  时装源于生活(root in daily life),反映生活趋势(reflect that life),充分考虑了消费者的需求(consider consumer demand),不像人们想的那样肤浅(not as superficial as some people think)。
  反对追随潮流(following fashion)的观点:
  潮流变化太快,盲目追求潮流(follow fashion blindly)是浪费时间和金钱;
  失去了自己的喜好和判断(dwell too much on what others think);
  鼓励人们将衣服和地位、社会阶层还有财富联系在一起(associate clothing with status, social class and wealth),这是一种歧视。
  范文
  Fashion refers to a style of clothing worn by most people of a country. The growing concern about fashion in recent years comes as no surprise, considering the fact that fashion is very often at odds with the traditional function of clothing, protecting wearers from the extremes of weather. In my opinion, fashion is not a betrayal but an indicative of a principle that wearing clothing is for both functional and social reasons.
  Fashions are linked to personal style. Fashions allow wearers to express emotion and solidarity with other people. People dress to their mood and according to circumstances. Buying fashionable clothes is a process in which the buyer translates his or her self-esteem into a personal style. A fashion indicates one's taste, social class, likes and dislikes. It gives wearers a sense of identity and makes it possible for them to feel connected to society.
  Fashions are designed and tailored to please buyers. Selecting, discussing and buying fashions can induce immense happiness. It has become a way of life and can be taken as a leisure activity, increasing interaction between people. With all types of images and colours, clothing is capable of giving buyers a desired look, boosting their moods and increasing their self-confidence. Fashion is about change which is necessary to keep life interesting.
  Despite the enjoyment brought by fashions, people should beware of their ever-changing nature and the expenditure of time and money on this commitment. A fashion usually remains popular for about one or two years at most and then is replaced by another. Many people have been obsessed with following the current fashions slavishly and pursuing the clothing with promised quality and limited availability ceaselessly. Many of them are motivated to buy outlandish clothing in a belief that they can thus keep up with fashion and their social positions are displayed.
  As shown above, there is no point in spurning fashion. Fashion is desired in a modern society as a means of expression and a source of enjoyment, although one should reduce unnecessary spending on Fashions.
