Heard fashion magazines raving about terms like “bishop sleeves” or a “trumpet skirt” and gone, like, what is that? Well, we bring you a few super cool silhouettes you should totally be stocking up on to max your style quotient!
1. Don the Down Jacket
Also known as a “bomber”. It is a warm jacket that is filled with soft feathers of a duck or goose and thus is super insulated! Can be folded and put inside a small bag and is easy to carry around as it isn’t too bulky!
This sleeve is gathered around the cuff and loose from below the elbow! A style that was very popular in the peasant dresses for the comfort factor. It was popularised in the 1960s and it usually goes well with softer fabrics and makes the shoulders looks smaller.
As the name reveals, this can be incorporated in a dress or a top - there is a cut right where the shoulders begin and extends anywhere from the middle of the arm to the wrist. The shoulders remain exposed in this cut and thus the name!
It is very similar to a wide boat neck. The neck rests on both the shoulder blades from one end to another to give a very refined look! Perfect when you want to accentuate your shoulder blades and best suited for small busted ladies!
A trapeze dress is essentially a dress in the shape of a trapezoid; instead of nipping at the waist, it becomes fully flared towards the hem to give that look. Petite girls can drown in it, so make sure you choose one that ends above the knees!
We have all owned this and only referred to it as windproof jacket. The parka is a slightly longer jacket with a hood designed to be worn in winters. It has a adjustable mid-waist band too! Can be as bulky and lined with fur or fleece too!
As the name suggests, cascade collar is something that falls in a cascade like structure from the starting of the back of the neck, it takes this shape automatically because of the way it has been cut!
