Fashion terms the stylish person should be tossing around this season
Fashion is all about fads, you’ll agree. And if you want to be on top of the trends you’ve got to get the lingo right. Here’s a list of fashion terms to have in your vocab right now, so you can wow the crowd with your style smartness:
First, there was slow food. Now it’s slow fashion – a mindful, eco-conscious approach to style. It’s not just about organic fibres and fabrics, but also about choosing handmade clothes, embroidery and workmanship over factory-produced stuff.
A fallout of the slow, sustainable fashion movement, this means to recycle your old pieces, giving them a makeover that makes them more gorgeous than before.
A cross between flat shoes and platforms, they are the summer’s hottest trend and comfortable, too.
Bags to be slung across the body is what these are. And you must have one amongst your accessories.
It’s not what you see when you’re out in the ocean, but the top trending colour of the season. Be sure to be able to identify this subtle shade of blue-green.
You might call them louche or baggy, but clothes that don’t fit particularly well are also being seen on the catwalks this season.
Wild nail art
Forget those Swarovski-crusted nails. It’s now time for wild creativity as nails include chains, lettering, flowers and even 3D elements. Themes range from Goth to travel and psychedelic.
That’s how you refer to sports wear that’s been sexed up these days.
