Ann: You mean you want to change your clothing style?

Steve: Not really. Helen invited me to a party and I want to look stylish, but I hate to dress up.

Ann: I advise you not to follow the crowd, Steve, and make your own fashion. You should put on the clothes you feel comfortable in.

Steve: Are you sure?

Ann: Absolutely. Your blue shirt and green jacket look so good on you. Besides, they go well with your jeans and trainers. It’ll be informal, but smart.

Steve: Thank you, Ann. I think I’ll feel right in these clothes.
