Everyone who identifies themselves as stylish or a fashion enthusiast, should know certain key fashion terms to hold their own in any conversation. Here are four fashion terms to know:

Bespoke:

Bespoke tailoring is quite different from 'ready-to-wear' or 'off-the-peg' suits. The suits are usually crafted by hand with the customer's specific requirements and measurements.

Black Tie dress code:

It’s vital to note that dinner ‘jacket' is a more acceptable term than 'tuxedo', although they are often interchanged. They are usually characterized by satin facings on the lapels and on the outer seams of the dinner suit trousers. They can be either doubled-breasted or single. Also, bow ties are the expected accessory to match. Meanwhile, Hollywood black tie is for those who cannot master the bow and go for a neck tie.

Boat Shoes:

They are usually structured with a canvas or leather upper. They also feature rubber soles with a siping pattern cut into them, which aids grip on a wet boat deck. Other features are a lace-up fastening and lace detailing threaded around the side of the shoe.

Boot cut pants:

This is a by-product of the acid house rise, structured denim cut that’s loose at the hem to accommodate a boot. The style is different from women’s jeans, as it’s flared/loose all the way down, as opposed to tapered at the knee.
