To navigate among all cuts of clothes, Juliette today Unveils you the third part of his great lexicon of fashion, about skirts!
Memo: this glossary brings together types of clothes, accessories and clothing styles to be dealing with the bend of a shopping session or
reading a fashion article. The list is not exhaustive, and each item has own shades! The definitions are here to help and guide, but can also find variations according to the specialists.
Navigate through the clothes when you know not much, it can quickly be a monumental headache. There are so many technical terms that even the most aguerri•e•s do not necessarily speak them all!
And to help find your way you among all these welted pockets, these officers collars and these skirts skaters, I concocted you now of friendly lexicons which will appear regularly and will help find your way you during your shopping.
In each article, I will try to collect (almost) all the different forms of tops, skirts, dresses, shorts, pants, collar, pockets, sleeves… Back so today with skirts!
All about skirts

- Midi-skirtThis term designates the skirts that reach mid-calf.
