Bell ringer question

To be successful in the fashion industry, designers, producers, marketers, and retailers must have an understanding of basic fashion terms, such as style and design.



  • A particular shape or type of apparel item, such as a mini-skirt or Capri pant, identified by the distinct features that make it unique.

  • A style becomes a fashion when it becomes popular. It remains a fashion as long as it is accepted.

    While fashion constantly changes, style remains constant. Many external factors can influence style, including social, technological, regulatory, competitive, and economic factors.



  • A particular or unique version of a style because of a specific arrangement of the basic design elements.

    • The 4 basic elements of design are color, line, shape, and texture.

Choosing colors

Choosing Colors

  • Some colors are warm, and some are cool.

  • Warm colors are those colors which are related to red, orange and yellow. They are also described as advancing. This means the colors visually stand out. Clothes of warm, advancing colors seem to make the body appear larger.

  • Cool colors are those colors which are related to blue and green. These colors seem to recede, making the body appear smaller.

  • White and light colors tend to make the body look larger.

  • Black and dark colors tend to make the body look smaller.

  • Bright colors tend to make the body appear larger.

  • Dull colors tend to make the body appear smaller.

  • When combining colors in an outfit, consider the effects of sharp contrasts.

    • Strong color contrasts make the body appear shorter because the eye stops at the line of contrast.

    • If they are fairly horizontal, they make the eye move across, as horizontal lines do.
