Silhouette

Definition: Silhouette

Silhouette

n. In fashion, the overall outline, or shape of a garment. Three basic silhouettes form the basis for all clothing and are considered long-run fashions. These cycle over a period of years; the bell, with outer form rounded to waistline; the straight, hangs from the shoulders; and the bustle back silhouette. A-line and V-shape are modifications of the straight silhouette.
