A great activity for everyone


By Jon Zajac

As someone who loves fashion, I find that incorporating fashion-themed icebreaker questions can add a fun and engaging element to any event. One creative way to do this is by using “This or That” questions that are specific to the world of fashion. By asking questions related to style preferences, fashion icons, and industry trends, you can help your guests connect with each other and share their unique perspectives on the topic.

How to incorporate Fashion themed This or That questions

To incorporate fashion-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to fashion, such as style preferences, clothing items, designers, and trends. You can find inspiration from browsing online fashion blogs, magazines, and forums.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).

  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about fashion to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.

  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a fashion trivia game or create a DIY fashion project that guests can participate in.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your fashion-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the world of fashion. Here are some ideas:

  • Style preferences: Ask questions related to personal style, such as “Minimalist or maximalist?” or “Boho or classic?”. This can help guests get a sense of each other’s fashion sensibilities and find common ground.

  • Clothing items: Ask questions about specific clothing items, such as “Dresses or pants?” or “Heels or flats?”. This can help guests learn more about each other’s wardrobe preferences and maybe even discover some new ideas for their own closets.

  • Designers: Ask questions about popular fashion designers, such as “Chanel or Dior?” or “Gucci or Prada?”. This can help guests share their knowledge and opinions about the industry’s leading brands and designers.

  • Trends: Ask questions about current fashion trends, such as “Bold colors or neutral tones?” or “Sustainable fashion or fast fashion?”. This can help guests stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the fashion world and engage in thoughtful conversations about their impact.

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your fashion-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
