#EngVocab: Fashion (2)

I know it’s sometimes hard to get over the weekend and go back to routines, and that’s why some people aren’t fond of Mondays. I usually handle one of those days by choosing something with vibrant color to wear. It can be my shocking pink wedges or my lipstick red cardigan. Unless I had such a good weekend I cannot move on from, they usually work.

Anyway, this post is still related to items I mentioned before. We are going to discuss several words associated to fashion. How much do you know about fashion items?

1. Snapback. It is also known as flat cap or flat peak, a term for flat brim baseball cap. You can see the picture of snapback below.
