Oh.My.Word (T-Z)

And with that we have finally reached the end of our Oh.My.Word posts, sad, we know. It's been one educational journey we know you couldn't get enough of. So, without further ado, here is the 4th and final Oh.My.Word installment. You kids go on and pass Fashionography with flying colours. Failing is so passè.

  • Tank top - Possibly everyone's wardrobe staple. A tank top. Tank tops can be a loose or tight fit. Worn by men and women.
  • Tapered leg - Pant legs that become progressively narrower toward the ankle. Tapered Leg has a relaxed fit through the thigh and knee and tapered from the knee to the ankle. Ultra chic. 
  • Tankini - As a bathing suit combining a tank top, and a bikini bottom. But who needs tankinis when you could just tan in your birthday suit. 
  • Tea length - A dress or gown that extends to the end of the shin.The kind of dress you'd wear at a tea party. Duh.
  • Thong - Freedom. 
  • Tres chic - Very very fashionable.
  • Trench coat - A double-breasted, loose belted knee-length raincoat made of waterproof heavy-duty cotton drill or poplin. 
  •  Turtle Neck - A high, close fitting, turnover collar used especially for sweaters. It actually looks like a turtle's neck. 

  • U-Shaped neckline -  A deeply scooped neckline shaped like letter "U", where it derived its name or shaped like horse shoe.  
  • Unitard - No, it's not a retarded unicorn. It's a close-fitting, one-piece garment for the torso, legs, and feet, and often for the arms. Kind of like a sexy onesie.

  • VelvetVelvet is a soft pile fabric often used for luxury goods. This rich cloth can be hard to care for. It literally feels like love.
  • Vintage - Garments originating in, or whose design is inspired by, a previous era. Garments originating in, or whose design is inspired by, a previous era.  
  • Vogue -  The fashion bible. Life. Also french for "trendy" - That's so en vogue..


  • Waistcoat - A sleeveless, upper-body garment cut at waist level with a vertical, button-fastened front opening worn over a dress shirt and underneath a suit jacket of a three-piece suit. Unless your guy's a pimp don't encourage him to wear it as part of a three-piece suit.
  • Wedge Heel - A heel where the space under the foot is filled in, giving the appearance of a triangle “wedge” under the arch and heel of the foot when viewed from the side; not to be confused with the “platform heel” which refers to a thickened sole under the ball of the foot, although the two often appear together. The best alternative for stilettos.
  • Welt pockets - A welt pocket is a small, flat pocket commonly found on the breast of men's suit jackets. It's a 'hidden' pocket, you can also find it on pants or any garment for that matter.
      X-ray Fabrics - Sheer fabrics with a translucent effect. 
  •  Yonke - Definition: The part of the garment around the neckline on the front and the back. 
  •  Zori Definition: A Japanese sandals.

 Well this has been a blast. Bye bye sweeties, go on with your smart selves.
