Fashion, Fad, and Style
There are different types of apparels that are created by designers today. These apparels fall into different categories including; style, fashion, and fad. Three clothing items have been selected in the Pinterest website in this regard (E B, 2018). The first clothing item is an A-line short skirt with the Galaxy print. This clothing item falls within the fad category. This is mainly because of the use of the galaxy print thereto. Galaxy printed clothes have increasingly been embraced by young consumers. It is however imperative that this kind of design is a passing wave. The second clothing item is an animal-printed short-sleeved top. This falls within the fashion category since it is currently popular and has been popular for a long time. The third clothing item is a white crop top. It falls under the category of style because it has a clearly recognizable design.
