    Default fashions go round and round ( correct)

    Hello,

    I hope to correct that


    fashions go round and round



    fashions have always changed with time. No doubt Roman girls worried about having the latest hairstyle and boys in Ancient Egypt wanted to have sandals (1) they were cool and not the sensible ones their mothers preferred.



    Looking (2) round over recent times, there seem to be two main differences in the (3) kind Fashions have changed compared to earlier time. Firstly, (4) even more people have a choice of clothes available to them. There are few places (5) in the where the trainers, the caps or the T-shirts of teenagers do not change from one year to next. Secondly, styles are (6) exchanged within a much shorter time than they (7) used to be. For instance, in the 1960s, (8) dresses had the same low waists and narrow skirts as forty years before.



    In the early years of the 21 st century, the shops are (9) full of long skirts and coloured scarves like the one in fashion only thirty years before. Soon , we will find that the really fashionable people look no different from the (10) all of us, because it is only ten years since their clothes were in fashion before!
