Dictionary.com Caters to Fashion Writers Who've Run Out of Things to Say During Fashion Week

For some reason, to me, it's always really entertaining when something totally unrelated to fashion does something fashiony. The latest instance of this: Dictionary.com's word of the day.

For some reason, to me, it's always really entertaining when something totally unrelated to fashion does something fashiony. The latest instance of this: Dictionary.com's word of the day.

It appears that someone over at Dictionary.com is as obsessed with fashion as we are. While I'll admit I don't always open and read the Word of the Day emails I get every morning, I started to notice a couple of them feeling abnormally relevant to my life. A few days ago, it was chambray; today it was peplum. So I quickly pulled up all of my Dictionary.com emails and realized that every one since September 5 has been fashion-themed! Adorable.

So far I've gotten "habilement," "gingham," "toile," "chambray," and "peplum."

Amazingly, that's not even the only way Dictionary.com is celebrating fashion week. On their homepage, they have a slideshow titled "Haute Obscure: 8 Terms for Fashions Gone Extinct," featuring words like "pannier" and "houppelande."

We promise this isn't a sponsored post; we're just genuinely excited. Plus, after writing and editing review after review for several days straight, we need as much fashion vocabulary expansion as we can get.
