Fashcronyms: A Glossary of Fashion Acronyms


I get frequent texts from my non-fashion friends asking me what an #OOTD or #LOB is. I wonder if they’ve been living under a rock until I read that there is an “#IRL filter makeup demo” at Lucky FABB and have to consult Google for answers . Truly, the acronyms fashion-people use can be overwhelming and exclusionary, so I decided to highlight the most common fashcronyms for their sake and mine.
