Here’s part two to the glossary that the publishing powers that be wouldn’t let me include in the book. It was developed as a guide to help me keep various fashion terminology straight. So, since I developed it anyway—why not share it with friends? As usual, feel free to add your own terms or send this to a friend.
A-line skirt: A fitted skirt at the waist that flares out creating an A-line
Boot cut: Lower rise pants that slightly flare from the knee to the ankle.
Box pleated: Two folds of fabric brought together to form a pleat.
Capri pants: Straight-cut pants that ends in the mid-calf to ankle area of the leg
Chemise/skimmer: A straight unbelted dress with different sleeves and lengths.
Column skirt/straight skirt: A straight-line skirt without flares or fullness at the hem or waistline (aka pencil skirt).
Flat front pants: Pants without pleat in the front.
Gaucho: Extremely wide-legged pants that end in the mid calf to ankle region of the leg. Are normally worn with boots.
Handkerchief style: A hem of a blouse or skirt that is gently jagged to form flowing points.
Sarong skirt: A long cloth that is wrapped entirely around the body, often worn over bathing suits.
Sheaths: Skirts that are straight or close fitting and accompanied by a form fitting bodice. These skirts are normally ankle length and sometimes have slits in the front, side, or back to make it easier to walk.
