Fashion Acronyms

Global Watch: Do You Speak Fashion?

The Guardian UK recently reported that the fashion industry had gone a little bonkers, using more acronyms than a teenager texting her BFF. While this sounds a little OTT to me, it did make me think a lot about fashion talk. We all know about the LBD (little black dress), VPL, (visible panty line), RTW (ready to wear) and VBL (visible bra line), but did you also know there was OTK (over the knee) and LSD (calm down, I simply mean little sequin dress)?

Hmmm...what do you think the next fashion acronym will be?
