I started graduate school this semester and was inspired to have a mini class of my own. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Fashion 101. LESSON 2!
Shirts, so needed and underestimated. It is easy to forget about something so simple. We put one on just about everyday; but there are some shirts that need a little recognition!!! You’ll sound super fashion smart when using these terms.
What I have noticed is that shirts/tops are usually named after their necklines, collar types and sleeves.
Also you may notice some types are missing, I am saving them for a different lesson. 🙂
Fashion Education 101: Shirts/Tops
These little tops are in baby!
2. Bell sleeve
When the sleeve becomes larger at the bottom.
3. Cap Sleeve
The shoulder is barely covered by the sleeve.
There are corsets one wears under their outfits then there are fashion corsets. Thank all the rock stars, that this, is a now accepted shirt!
5. Cowl neck
There can be low and high cowl necks. Just remember cowl is a a circular neckline with extra fabric.
6. Crop tops
These cute shirts are also in style! When you type in crop tops, a lot of belly shirts will show but these are my favorite crop tops.
7. Dress shirt
Classy! I love wearing men’s dress shirts. They always seem more comfy.
8. Fitted tee shirt
Shirts that are tight to the body.
Halters have a fabric connecting to each side of the shirt, that goes around the neck.
10. Long sleeve
Shirts that have long sleeves. 🙂
11. Peplum Shirts
There are peplum shirts, dresses and skirts.
12. Polo Shirts
They started as a man’s shirt but once again we have feminized them!
13. Scoop neck
15. Spaghetti Straps
Tank tops have thick straps while spaghetti have thin.
19. Tee shirt
Just the plain old fashioned tee shirt.
20. Three quarter sleeve
These shirts sleeves end 1 to 4 inches below the elbow.
Shirts that the neck is completely covered.
These are my favorites!
23. V neck
Here are some more types!
