STYLE SERIES: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SHIRT & BLOUSE STYLE KEYWORDS
In this second part of our ongoing style series we are focussing on styles and keywords for listing men’s shirts/t-shirts/tops and women’s blouses/t-shirts/tops.
When researching styles and keywords Google Image Search is your friend. I have found a few examples for you, to give you as many varied keyword ideas and options as possible…
Above is a self explanatory selection of male and female tops and shirts.
- A Princess Vest is sleeveless without a collar.
- A Western Shirt is recognisable by the Cowboy style stitching and angular, shield like pocket shapes.
- A Gypsy Top could also be called a Peasant Top, Shirt or Blouse
- A Peplum Top/Blouse is recognisable by the skirt like material at it’s base.
Male shirts tend to come in these four basic fits:
- Slim – comfortable slim fitting shirt with back body darts for shaping.
- Extra Slim – Fitted Shirt with a slender body shape and back body darts for a closer fit.
- Tailored – Slightly tapered classic shirt – not as closely cut as the slim.
- Classic – Traditional fit – unrestricted – straight cut.
Other types of male tops and t-shirts include those in the image above.
- Basic T-Shirt – short sleeved with a crew neck
- Golf or Polo Shirt – short or long sleeved with a soft collar and buttons
- Henley Shirt – Short or long sleeved T-shirt/Top with a distinctive shape to the collar – essentially a collarless polo shirt
- Jersey – This is more an American Term. We would probably call this a Long Sleeved T-shirt. With a number on, as in the example above, this would be known as a Sports Jersey.
All keywords are highlighted. Any further information can be found with the Google Image Search ‘Shirt Styles’. Please feel free to bookmark this page for reference.
