New words and styles are discovered in fashion very often. Creative concepts are everywhere adding glamour to the already glorious world of fashion. There are so many styles and vocabularies that cannot be exhausted in a lifetime.
However, a professional must always be at the top of his game. We want you at the top of your game and that’s why we’re writing you this article. Listed below are 3 fashion styles that you need to know about as you journey through fashion entrepreneurship. Let’s get started!
There are different types of sleeves and one of the basic three is the raglan sleeve. A raglan sleeve is a kind of sleeve that highlights the neck. It is joined diagonally in the front of the shirt and that highlights the neckline and shoulder of the wearer. If made of two different colours, a raglan sleeve would remind you of the halter neckline.
Its history can be traced to Lord Raglan, a British army officer in the 1800s. He was the first person recorded to have worn a coat with that kind of sleeve after losing his left arm in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. This type of sleeve allows for comfort and ease of movement.
This refers to unconventional and artistic styles. They are those spontaneous extravagant designs that turn out very nicely. Bohemian styles are a product of well thought out art, a manifestation of strong creative energy. Imagine putting an underbust corset on a halterneck dress, if it comes out nicely then that’s bohemian.
Peasant sleeves can be tricky and have nothing to do with lower classes as the name may imply. They are a wide range of simple sleeves without extra. The good old three-quarter or long sleeves are peasant sleeves.
For peasant sleeves, simplicity is key. They simply wrap around your arms in the most natural way possible.
How These Terms Are Used
Raglan sleeves are usually used on sweatshirts and shirts. If you’re a designer who does crocheting, you might find the raglan sleeve really comfortable to design. It gives a casual and comfortable finish to the shoulder. They look great on people with broad shoulders.
Bohemian styles are usually best for red carpet events. They allow you to be creative, dramatic but guided. They are not to be perceived as weird.
Peasant sleeves can be used to create dramatic effects with a Queen Anne neckline or puffed sleeves. It isn’t right for a professional fashion designer to refer to peasant sleeves as “simple style”. Your vocabulary earns you respect.
