Fashion Education 101: Shirts/Tops

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!

No Shoes
No Shirts
No Service!

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. 🙂

Enjoy!

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.
