From casual to chic fashion wear, here is a list of fashion terms that you had no idea even existed. So dear girl, now it’s time to upgrade your fashion dictionary and maybe even add a few styles to your own wardrobe this season. Hey there style diva!
1. Balloon Sleeves

2. Choker tops
Ditch the choker necklace and opt for the choker top instead! In case you haven’t already figured it out - a top combined with a choker is a choker top. ‘Coz sometimes, there ain’t no time to accessorize!
3. Naked Dress

4. Dad Fashion
Outfits like baggy jeans, oversized buttoned shirts, muscle tees and the likes of it - allowing you to rock a sporty look! Basically clothes that you spot in your dad’s wardrobe but not necessarily requiring you to have a dad body to pull them off!

This word is a fusion of ‘grey’ and ‘outfit’! So it’s basically an outfit created by pairing upper and lower separates, both being shades of grey.
7. Blogger Jacket

8. Wrap And Tuck
A super chic yet simple-to-follow fashion trend that can amp up your fashion game this year. How is it done? Just wear an oversized buttoned shirt, unbutton the last few buttons, then tuck the left half carefully towards the right side of your jeans and overlap the right half and tuck it into the left part of the jeans. Voila, you’re good to go!

10. Empire Waist Dress
An empire waist dress is a dress which is fitted till right below the bust or right above the natural waist, with a long loosely fitted conjoined skirt below it. This dress offers a very high fashion vintage look and helps your waist appear tiny! Yay!

12. Glove Shoes
A popular trend of this season, glove shoes fit your feet like gloves, hiding toe cleavage rather than showing it. They have a modest heel so they’re super comfortable and allow you to flaunt a very elegant look, with casuals and formal wear, alike!
