| Fashion Terms You Need To Know |

2016 has been a fantastic year for all things fashion. With 90s making an epic comeback with chokers, overalls and brown lips we also saw the junior Hadid taking over the fashion scene while Instagram is now basically SnapChat without the invigorating filters. Also, makeup videos is basically what you scroll through your Instagram suggestions. Keeping up with Fashion is hard and keeping up with the Fashion Lingo is even harder! But lets not fret about it! I've got you covered. 

1. Avant Garde:
This is one term you'll most commonly hear or read around. It basically means people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox, with respect to art, culture, and society. The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm.



2. Pret-a-porter
This term is generally used to describe the designer clothes sold ready to wear rather than made to measure.



3. Haute Couture:
One of the most commonly used terms, this term describes expensive, fashionable clothes produced by leading fashion houses.



4. Sartorial:
We use this one so often. Derived from the Latin term – Sartorius, it is used to describe clothing, manner, and or style of a dress.



5. Silhouette:
Utilized often in fashion and fitness, it is simply describes the shape of the body. That aside, a silhouette can also be a shape created after you have worn a certain style.
