Accessories

This is term that be used in place of additional ornamentation. Accessories add to a more fashionable or dimensional look. It is often used to describe things such as, belts, scarves and socks to sunglasses, jewellery, watches and more.

Anorak

The difference between anorak and parka is, still stands. The Caribou Inuit created the anorak as a waterproof, hooded jacket with drawstrings at the waist and cuff. Meanwhile, the parka is a longer, knee-length jacket made for cold weather. Although the hood is lined with fur, the jacket itself is full of down feathers or a very warm synthetic fibre.

Aviators

A sunglasses silhouette was actually made for military pilots, thus the name. It’s been widely around since the 1960s, the classic teardrop shaped frames have seen their fame climb due to constant celebrity use and movies such as Top Gun.

Balance

This could mean the scale on which the success of a finished coat is judged. The length at the front and the back of the jacket should be even. This balance depends on the shoulders fitting you properly.
