With the fashion industry constantly evolving, it is difficult to keep yourself updated with the latest lingo. Fashion lingo often finds itself entrenched in everyday language. Each season there are a variety of words that get associated with certain trends, and we are often left dumbstruck when celebrities and fashion designers use them. Although some of these just live for a season or two, there are certain words that stay. Also, since fashion is such a dynamic discipline, we have come up with few of the most trending fashion buzzwords that will help you stay on top of things. So pull out your diaries and get ready to expand your glossary.
Lampshading is a trend that is often sported by the Kardashian sisters. It refers to wearing a pair of over-the-knee boots with a broad hemline that hits right above or right at the top of your shoes.
Heard of an ‘arm-party’ before? It refers to the wearer’s ability to mix, match and stack several bracelets, watches and other wrist accessories. Layered necklaces are another way of throwing your own jewellery ‘party’.
All the Snapchat enthusiasts must have tried this at least once in their lifetime, but we are pretty sure you guys must be unaware of the precise term. Shoefie is a selfie of the shoes you are wearing.
