It’s hard to be fashionable if you don’t know what’s in style. But it’s not impossible! This article will tell you all about the fashion terms starting with the letter O so that you can always look your best.
- Oversized: Oversized clothing is a trend that has been going on for years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Some people believe oversized clothing looks sloppy, but others say it makes them feel comfortable and relaxed. You might find this trend especially appealing if you’re looking for a way to hide those extra pounds from the holidays!
- Oxford Cloth Shirt: The Oxford cloth shirt is an iconic staple of men’s fashion around the world – as well as one of the most popular fashion items for men who care about their appearance. It’s a simple, clean-cut shirt with buttons on its front and an Oxford logo sewn onto the chest; it usually has a button-down collar (although some men wear it without the collar). You can wear this shirt both casually and formally.
- Outfit – Outfit is the combination of clothing, accessories, and/or make-up that one wears. The outfit may or may not be coordinated. Creative outfits are often selected to create a particular mood or look. Outfits vary in terms of the level of formality and can range from casual attire such as jeans and a t-shirt to formal wear such as a dress shirt with a tie.
- Ombre: Ombre is a French word that means “shade”. It is the gradual darkening of hair color usually from light to dark colors. The lightest shade starts at or near the top of your head and moves down, gradually getting darker until it reaches the darkest shade which is typically found at the bottom part of your hair.
- Outré: Outré describes something that is so bizarre or unusual that it goes beyond being merely unconventional and strange; it may be shocking.
- Overcasting – Overcasting simply refers to sewing two pieces together using stitching that encloses the raw edges along one side in parallel lines close to where they join (alternating back and forth). This makes an extra secure finish for garments made with delicate or stretchy fabrics.
- Overlay – Overlaying is the process of laying one piece of fabric over another to create a design or pattern. The upper material is called the overlay and the base fabric is usually hidden behind it (and sometimes referred to as “underlay”). You don’t need any special equipment or knowledge to perform this type of sewing; all you need are your eyes and some creativity.
