The answer is color theory and color mixing. Color theory is a practical combination, the detailed study of art and science used to determine what colors go well together, how we can get a particular color, and the study of different terms for shades. In 1666, Sir Isaac Newton invented the color wheel and mapped the color spectrum into a circle, or color wheel. It is the basis of color theory as it shows the relationship between colors and how they react to each other or side by side.Understanding the color wheel is important to the study of color mixing.Mixing the color (spectrum) of light and mixing the color of paint can have very different results. The main color of the mixed light produces white, and the main color of the paint property produces black, gray, or brown.Check out the color wheel blog before you read more about mixing colors. This is the basis for understanding color mixingProportional mixing:Mixing in equal parts: The basic mixing formula involves mixing two or more colors in equal parts. If two primary colors are mixed in equal amounts, the result is a secondary color:1 Red + 1 Yellow = Orange1 Blue + 1 Yellow = Green1 Red + 1 Blue = VioletMix two secondary colors in equal parts the quantities creates a tertiary such as -1 Orange + 1 Green = Olive1 Violet + 1 Green = Slate1 Orange + 1 Violet = BrownMixing two tertiary colors in equal quantities creates a quaternary such that:1 Chestnut + 1 Slate = Cedar1 Slate + 1 Olive = Sage1 Chestnut + 1 Olive = CoffeeMixing equal amounts gives a clean image.Mixing ratio -To create a wide range of new colors, you can mix primary colors using different colors in different proportions to each other. Mixing paint using a proportional color mixing formula ensures that a specific color can be reproduced, allowing designers to provide consistency and a unified look in color mixing.Proportional color mixing involves simple ratios, like using twice as much red as yellow, or complex formulas, like mixing one part blue, two parts red, and three parts yellow. Each combination produces a new, unique and interesting result.Proportional color formulas involve mixing two parts of one primary color with one part of another primary color to create tertiary colors as shown below;2 Red + 1 Blue = Magenta2 Blue + 1 Red = Violet2 Blue + 1 Yellow = teal2 yellow + 1 blue = yellow green2 yellow + 1 red = amber2 red + 1 yellow = vermilion Primary color mixing ratio:To get orange, you need to mix the primary color red and yellow.The mixing ratio of these two colors determines the type of orange you get when mixed. For example, if you add more red than yellow, you get red-orange. Similarly, if you add more yellow than red, you get yellow-orange.also depends on the color temperature you choose. So experiment with the shades you have.Experiment with different combinations and mixing ratios, and document your results so you can achieve the same color in the future. So it's easier to say that mixing different shades of red with different shades of yellow doesn't produce the same orange.It all depends on the secondary colors and shadows you want to create. If you mix hansa yellow with carmine, you get a different shade of orange than garcinia.Are there different shades of red, blue and yellow available for purchase?Yes! You can choose from a variety of primary colors in different shades.Here are some examples:Blue: Cobalt Blue, Sky Blue, Ultramarine, Caribbean Blue, Venetian Blue, Prussian BlueRed: Cadmium Red, Scarlet, Carmine, Crimson and Venetian RedYellow: Naples Yellow, Garcinia, Cadmium Yellow, Lemon yellow and ocher yellow Importance of white and black in color mixing -Although it seems logical that to lighten a color you need to add white to it, white reduces brightness or saturation, so even though it lightens the color, it takes away its vibrancy. It produces a tint of that color and makes transparent colors opaque. It also cools the color.This is especially noticeable in the reds, which change from warm red to cool pink when using titanium dioxide.Watercolor is transparent, so to lighten, simply add more water to the paint to make the paper shine.Black does not add darkness, but creates haze and tends to smudge base colors rather than just darken them. Of all the common blacks, Mars Black is the darkest and most opaque, Ivory Black has a brown undertone, and Lamp Black has a blue undertone.In some cases, however, black has unique value, such as the range of greens it can produce when mixed with yellow.The Importance of Medium Opacity in Color Mixing - Different pigments have different properties. Some pigments are so transparent that they are clearly visible under several coats of paint. Others are very opaque. If you take this into account, it can help you layer your work even more.Watercolor mixes differently than acrylic or oil paint.The use of white and black is discouraged in traditional watercolor painting, and acrylic and oil paints cannot work effectively without both. It is important to know which category your artistic medium belongs to in order to better understand the painting process.It is important to understand a summary of paints and other pigment-based materials in order to better understand the mixing of colors beyond the artist.Almost all mediums are made from the same source of powdered pigments. Some colors come directly from nature, while others are artificial or synthetic.When powdered pigments are mixed with various additives called binders, the following are produced -Oil Paints: As the name suggests, the pigments are mixed with an oil (usually linseed) in a tube, which dries slowly and more easily. to mix together. It can be used directly from the tube or diluted with a medium for primer or varnish. Oils retain their strength after drying, unlike water-based paints, which tend to be darker or lighter in color when dry than when wet.Water Soluble Oil: This coating is miscible with conventional oils. If used in pure form, the water can be used to clean brushes.Oil Sticks: These oil sticks contain wax which sticks the paint to the stick, drying more slowly than oil. Solvents are the same as paints.Acrylic: This medium contains an emulsion which, when dry, forms an insoluble, water-resistant plastic surface. It can be used diluted with water or removed from the tube undiluted. Texture paste can be added for impasto or 3D effects.It is recommended to change the water in the tank and clean the brush well after each painting to get rid of the paint stuck to the brush. It can be used on any oil-free surface, from paper to cardboard and canvas. Acrylic does not reactivate like watercolor or gouache. So, to test a single color among many, mix them in small amounts until you get the formula that works. Otherwise, you'll end up with a lot of unwanted colors on your palette that could go to waste.Gouache and Poster colours: These colors contain a binder which remains water-soluble after drying. Pigments are generally coarser or grayer than watercolors, and therefore more opaque or opaque. It can be reactivated for further mixing with water. Watercolors: Premium watercolors from the highest quality base pigments. They are made by adding a special water-soluble gum arabic.This medium is used on watercolor papers that have a smooth, rough or somewhere in between texture. It is important to know that although it is a transparent medium, some watercolors are more likely to be opaque. It lacks dynamism and dries dull on paper. One of the best examples is black. This is why artists recommend that learners mix a color that looks like them rather than using a color straight from the tube, except to achieve a specific shade.Watercolor pencils: These are used to draw lines, add texture and depth, or animate on paper after colors have been placed.Pastels: Here, the paint is put into sticks with distilled water and a minimum of binders. Some are wrapped in wax paper to prevent breakage and come in stick form. It is often used on colored papers with texture or "teeth" to keep paint particles dry. Spray fixatives prevent rubbing, but tend to darken pencil work.It is believed that a frosted board was added behind the glass to prevent the work from touching the glass.Ink: Ink is available as waterproof and water soluble ink. By using very fine pigments, premium inks can provide white clarity, which can be increased by adding layers when using waterproof varieties. It can be used with brushes, sponges and more. Ink can be loaded into angled pens to accommodate different line widths. The nib should be cleaned regularly.Can any recipe be used or made to mix colors? Thehas color mixing formulas popular with artists to achieve the desired color. This is especially true in the case of beautiful colors obtained by mixing primary colors such as ultramarine blue with earth tones or neutrals to obtain colors that are desaturated and tend towards the colors of nature. These colors are subtle and visually pleasing.Here are some examples of neutral color formulas widely used by artists:Ultramarine + Red Brown/Vermilion = Desaturated VioletUltramarine + White + Rose/Red Tint = LavenderLavender + Ocher = Yellowish Gray is the color derived from Ultramarine Bluewhich is often the result of color wheel research and found to be the most effective. While most artists mix colors empirically, some admit to mixing colors intuitively when painting. It is therefore crucial to know which color complements another color you are using.A popular example is to use a deep, warm purple (a color that looks a lot like plums) next to yellow, as the two colors are opposite on the color wheel and therefore complement each other. If you study architectural paintings, you might notice how this color is used to indicate a building or a shade on a yellow door.Stem and Color Chart/Mix Recipe Book. The different card types above and what eachmeans Before you start using any color on any paper, always take a small piece of paper and paint that color on it. You can only try one color at a time, this is called "proofing" or working on different cards. Due to paper characteristics, colors will appear differently on different papers. The different types of charts you can create yourself are:Color wheel■ Mixed charts (for all media)Mixed charts are structured as a grid with an equal number of lines and of columns.For example, you can generate an 8x8 grid and paint a single color in the first row and column in the same order, then find out by combining one color in the row with one in the corresponding color in the column.Watercolor Blending Card■ Glass Card (for watercolor)Because watercolor is a transparent medium, the glass card can help you see what the first layer appears under the second transparent layer. Start with the lightest shades first, such as yellows, as they are more likely to be smeared with color.Choose high quality paper for this, as lighter colors look better on higher quality paper.Watercolor Glass Diagram■ Two Color Mixture DiagramMixes two colors in different proportions to identify unique color mixtures■ Value DiagramA color can be represented at different values in an image.Observe carefully. It indicates how dark or light the color is, depending on the light and dark areas. Before working on a value map of any color, first try a monochrome study using only black. ■ Palette ChartThis tells you what a mixed color actually looks like on paper versus what it appears on apalette How to create non-tertiary colors and colors that artists often use, such as brown, white, black, gold, silver (except secondary and tertiary colours)■ White:White is a color that cannot be mixed with other colours. There are two kinds of white pigments known to us: titanium white and zinc white.If the tube says "China White", it is mostly zinc with occasional traces of titanium dioxide. Zinc white is cold and relatively transparent, while titanium white is warm white and opaque.Ideally, it's best to use white to accent the paint, rather than mixing it with other colors, as this can make your paint look dull.■ Brown:A basic brown can be created by mixing the three primary colors in nearly equal amounts. The amount of color can be varied to achieve different shades of brown.Alternatively, browns can be created by combining the following colors:■ Orange + BlueIt is important to note that the colors should be mixed in equal amounts. This may vary from the previously mentioned recipe, depending on the oranges used.Another way is to mix blue with yellow to make green (e.g. Prussian green). When you mix it with a red or a red variant like vermilion or roux, you get a very dark shade of brown that can replace black in some areas.Prussian Green + Orange/Vermilion■ BlackThe artist's suggestion to mix all the colors in your palette black is no joke.When you mix red, blue, and green, you get the color closest to black. Nothing more than:Red + Blue + (Yellow + Blue) Mixes colors to form brown, black, gray and gold■ GrayGray is essentially a combination of black and white.Warm grayWarm gray is obtained by mixing a small amount of brown in a basic grayBlue + yellow = greenGreen + red (in small quantities) = brownGray + brown = warm grayCool gray1 1 part blue + part black + small amount of whiteFinal color will have a cool tone■ SilverSilver in any image is simply gray with a shiny finish. To convey the silver in your paint, try mixing any of the following and marking the highlights with white for reflectivity.Ultramarine Blue + Burnt Brown = Warm GrayCobalt Blue + Burnt Brown = Soft Silver GrayPhthalo Blue + Burnt Brown = Greenish GrayPearl and shimmer pigments are available if your objective is a shiny effect.■ GoldIf an object is related to gold, artists tend to associate it with colors classified as yellow or brown. If the metal is antique, it may have a hint of olive green.However, if you want to mix your own colors from the primary colors, you can try this formula:1 part red + 1 part yellow + 1 part blackYou can adjust the tint by adding a small amount while mixing primary colors until you get what you want gold.How dogray and gold matchHow do portraits of different skin colors match?The skin has a hot or cold appearance.People with lighter skin usually have cooler blue undertones. However, people with darker skin tend to have warm undertones like olive green. You can make an informed decision about choosing a color by carefully experimenting with shades and knowing what you are trying to achieve.The first layer of the portrait must be marked with the background color. This applies when working with watercolors.One or two layers can be built on top with scarlet, orange, raw tan, burnt tan, burnt tan, etc.In the case of oils, these may be the colors normally chosen for primers. Skin tones can be created by mixing base browns first. This is done by mixing equal amounts of the three primary colors.For darker skin tones, you can change the tone of this blend by adding a small amount of red, yellow, or brown, depending on the color you want.You can add black for a deeper color. If you want a lighter complexion, mix a red such as Alizarin Crimson with Lemon Yellow etc. and keep adding white until you get a skin tone.Blush Tones - Adds a hint of deep red to pre-blended skin tones for natural color to indicate blush tones.What is visual isolation and how is it useful in identifying the correct color?To be able to mix colors more accurately, an important preliminary step is to recognize the true color of the object.A small exercise could be to practice visual isolation techniques on a reference image. it is very simple.Visual isolation techniqueTake a sheet of paper and poke a hole in it. Move this punch hole to an area of the reference photo as a printout or enlargement of the image on screen. You will now be able to identify the value, hue and color temperature of the segment.This technique is especially useful for identifying colors in shaded areasAs beginners, we usually tend to use black to represent the shadow of any object. But using this simple technique, you'll find that the shadows aren't actually black, but warm or cool colors that add to the subject depending on the time of day or the quality of light shown on the picture. and how not Final Mixed Cloudy Color (Cautions and Precautions)A cloudy color, or a cloudy color, is literally an unwanted color, similar to the color of mud, formed due to the mixing of colors in wrong proportions or The colors tend to go in opposite directions on the color wheel.These are the colors you don't want to use in your artwork because they are saturated, dull and opaque, ruining the beauty of your painting.To avoid such colors, pay attention to the following points:Study the color wheel and prepare a study card for your understanding and reference.For example, cerulean blueand ptalo blue are more greenish, or ultramarine bluegreener is more purple.So if you combine Crimson with Ultramarine you get Neutral PurpleIf you combine Scarlet with Ultramarine you get Warm PurpleHowever when you combine Scarlet (warm red) with Curry Blue (cold blue) the resulting color will be desaturated compared to other colors.The context in which the color is applied is important. The color may not appear cloudy when mixed on the palette. However, if it doesn't work with the other colors in your paint, that color is a cloudy color.In the case of watercolor, identify opaque colors by knowing the properties of a certain color and avoid it if possible.Watercolor Color Separation:Some pigments behave differently than others. This works well for colors that look grainy when applied. Common examples of such pigments are those found in ultramarine blue, burnt yellow, burnt brown, and sometimes sky blue and raw brown.If you mix a warm color with a cool grainy color, you get attractive blended colors that look even when applied, but show wonderful separation when dry.This is especially noticeable and noticeable on rough paper or cold-printed paper that does not have a smooth surface.Try it: Mix equal parts ultramarine blue and transparent orange and draw a small section on scrap paper. This may seem like a mistake to some, but it can be used to your advantage when creating interesting contrasts.What is base color and what is the importance of base color in oil painting?Shades are colors that are not directly perceived by the viewer, but affect the dominant hue/shades recognized by the viewer. A base coat is the first coat on the surface you choose to paint on and serves as the base for subsequent coats. Shades create a sense of depth and richness in a painting and prevent your painting from looking dull. Earth tones are often used to set the stage for paint layers in paintings because of their neutral and pleasing appearance.Underpainting Widely used in oil painting, but also in mediums such as acrylic and gouache. It works the same way as the first clear watercolor wash.
Types of ClothingFashion is a trillion dollar industry and you can be sure that there are many different types of clothing.Clothing worn at home, at work, in society or when practicing sports and leisure activities. We also provide clothing for important occasions such as weddings and graduations. Clothing is considered essential if there is an event or activity where we will not attend naked.So what are these different types of clothing?TypeGarments Garments, also known as garments, garments, or garments, are generally articles of cloth and other materials worn on the human body.There are “types” of clothing depending on the environment:● Business attire – worn for professional purposes● Casual attire – worn as standard attire● Evening attire – worn at events such as weddings● Underwear – worn for support and Underwear and/or accessories worn for supportSportswear – worn for physical activities such as runningand “type” based on gender and age:Baby clothes - worn for infants and toddlersChildren's clothes - worn for children 2 years and older Dressing● Men's clothes - usually worn by men● Clothes for women - usually worn by womenBut clothing can also be divided into different types of clothing according to clothing:1.

Chapter Just Three Examples! As you can see, there are so many types of clothes!Different Types of ClothingTo make this the most definitive list of types of clothing, let's take a look at the list of clothing above and break it down further with descriptions and photos!BloomersBloomers are undergarments worn on the lower body, usually with an elasticated waist and usually with lace at the hem of each leg.Invented in the 19th century, they were looser and lighter than the thick fabric dresses worn by women at the time.Although she did not design the bloomers, they are named after Amelia Bloomer, a 19th century women's rights activist.Shirts Shirts are garments for the upper body in women's clothing. Similar to shirts, shirts can be:Long sleeveShort sleeveSleevelessShirts are generally made of a lighter material than their "shirt" counterparts and often have more interesting details such as lace collars, ruffles, ruffles, pins and more. BodysuitThink of the bodysuit as a bodysuit with a click opening under the leg and you're on your way!Bodysuits are often made of skin-colored jersey so they can look demure over low-cut dresses.bra Thebra is worn by women to support their breasts. They come in different styles, as well as different cuts, shapes, and levels of support.Corset A corset is a form-fitting upper body garment with shoulder straps. A corset usually does not have a skeleton, but is made up of several parts, like a corset.The most famous and recognizable corset is the one that John Paul Gaultier made for Madonna!Kaftan Thekaftan (also spelled kaftan) is a loose-fitting garment popularized by Christian Dior in the 1950s. They are traditionally left open in the front, although in the 2000s they were often closed as simple dress dresses or cover-ups.CardiganWe all wear cardigans knitted by our grandmothers, right? Like sweaters, cardigans are made of knitted fabric and have an opening in the front.They can be zipped, but button openings are more popular.They were popularized by Chanel in the 1920s as part of two and three piece dresses.Capes Capes are worn as outerwear and cover only the upper body, or can be extended to the thighs, knees or even ankles.They usually have slits in the front to allow the arms to stretch out if necessary.Coat Thecoat is similar to a jacket but has a longer length and is designed for colder weather.They are more like winter clothes and can be made from heavy fabrics like wool and lined before being added for extra warmth.Corsets Corsets were historically worn under clothing such as dresses and tied tightly to "tighten" the waist to make it as small as possible.Since Vivienne Westwood included the corset in her collections in 1987, other fashion designers have followed suit and the corset is now a common garment type in dresses and separates!Corsets differ from corsets in that they use "pillars" or a "skeleton" to provide structure and support. It can be a metal, plastic or polyester skeleton.DressA dress is a garment that falls from the shoulders and covers the torso, hips and thighs. It can be fitted or loose and airy. Thestyle variation means dresses can also be strapless, requiring them to fit close to the bodice or fall to any length between thigh and floor.If you want to know more, I have a detailed guide on the different types of dresses.Overalls Overalls worn by women during the World Wars, originally men's overalls.They consist of trousers, front and back, held in place by Moët straps. Now worn by women and children more than men,dress pants have become a staple and are also made from denim, corduroy and vibrant prints!JacketThe jacket can be casual or formal and can be worn as a suit or outerwear. Trench coats and bomber jackets are considered casual outerwear, while tuxedos and blazers are tailored jackets.Jeans Originally known as a cotton fabric woven in Nîmes, France,became a more widely known term in the 1800s for Levi Strauss' denim garments.Jeans for the 2020s come in many styles, materials, and fits, as well as different denim colors!I have a great article on how to make the DIY jeans pictured below!Jumper In the 19th century, a jumper was a short garment resembling a coat for men. These are the terms currently used in the UK to refer to sweaters.Learn more about sweaters with our excellent guide to sweater types here!JumpsuitJumpsuits are the trending clothes of the 2020s - with sewing patterns created by independent pattern makers around the world!This is a full body suit, traditionally with long sleeves and long legs, also known as a "flight suit" or "water bottle suit".Kilt Tartan or tartan fabric is used in the manufacture of kilts, worn as skirts and hanging from the waist.Traditional men's kilts may be fully pleated, or the ends of the fabric may be left unpleated, overlapping the front of the body. Thewomen's kilt isn't all that special, with styles influenced by seasonal trends.The kimonoThe kimono is a garment from Japan that is often used as the basis for dressing gowns, but since the late 19th century, kimonos have been frequently adopted by fashion designers as a clothing trend.BloomersAlthough the bloomer is a very historic item of clothing, in the late 1960s fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent made the bloomer fashionable.These are baggy pants - like pants! - but only gather below the knee.Leggings Leggings, worn over the legs, have been popular casual wear for many years, but have historical roots in medieval coats!Modern leggings are made of a stretchy material - often knitted - and wear a very close fit.They also come in different lengths, from ankle length to low rise cropped pants and more!LeggingsI remember being a schoolgirl in England in the 80's and being forced to wear leggings!At the time they were cylindrical, woven by hand and worn on the legs, between the knees and the ankles.They can be slipped under our schoolboy pants or worn with a mini skirt for a stylish look.LeotardOne of my childhood hates, the leotard covers the body from the crotch to the shoulders. First worn by French trapeze artist Jules Léotard in the 19th century, thehas since become popular with disco enthusiasts and dancers alike. Theis now made in a variety of fabrics to meet both activewear and casual wear needs.UnderpantsUnderpants are underwear worn by women on the lower body. Also called panties in some countries, they can be made of knitted cotton fabric, lace, mesh, etc.They are often trimmed with gathered elastic or picot for decorative effect and to trim the raw edges of the fabric.Culottes / CulottesWorn on the lower body to keep the legs warm and covered, culottes (or culottes, as they are also called!) are a repeat of early 19th century culottes and have been worn by women ever since. 1920s.Trousers and slacks in those days were baggy, and it wasn't until the 1970s that it became acceptable for women to wear slacks for both casual and formal events.Underskirt The Underskirt is an undergarment worn under dresses and skirts as an extra layer of insulation.They're not worn as often in the 2020s as they were when I was growing up in the 1980s - I remember my grandmother buying a bunch of silk fabric to make petticoats for her and her sisters.Jumpsuit Unlike the jumpsuit, the jumpsuit has a shorter leg length. Made from a variety of materials and cut in a variety of styles, a jumpsuit is a great modern garment - if you can take it all off to go to the bathroom!Playsuits are also often referred to as jumpsuits when it comes to products designed for women!Poncho Ponchos come from South America and look a lot like large blankets with a simple opening through which you can put your head.My other half has a few things he uses to keep warm in the winter.They are available in solid colors or in different patterns when woven.Pajamas pajamas are worn as sleepwear by women, men and children, but are increasingly preferred by fashion designers today.This trend of "nightwear" as "evening wear" began a century ago in the 1920s. !It is a long piece of fabric that can either be wrapped around the lower body and tied around the waist, much like a skirt, or wrapped around the torso and tied around the neck, much like a skirt. skirt.Shawl Another square fabric garment in which the shawl serves as a cover. This material can be a light evening dress or it can be cut in wool for extra warmth.Elongated shawls are called shawls!Whether worn indoors or outdoors, the shawl is a practical piece to wear around the shoulders.ShirtsShirts are garments worn on the uppe r body. It traditionally has a center front closure and a button opening so the shirt can be worn and buttoned.Shirts are worn by both men and women as casual and evening wear.I have a great guide for many types of shirts!ShortsWomen have worn shorts since the 1920s - a comfortable item of clothing, though often exaggerated by fashion designers and worn as evening wear for sleepovers. Shorts are also popular as an easy summer staple, worn with a tank top, tucked-in shirt, or worn as part of a two-piece pajama set. Theshorts are easy to make, and the legs can reach the knee like ultra-short hot pants. Below is the men's drawstring shorts pattern I created for my partner.Skirt Theskirt is another type of garment worn on the lower body. They can be made from just about any material you can think of and come in long, midi, mini and micro, and in many different styles.Learn more about the different types of skirts and styles here!Skirt Half skirt, half shorts, a skirt is a garment that looks like a skirt from the front - due to the overlapping parts of the fabric - but looks like shorts from the back. Theskirt is technically a pair of shorts - it has split legs - but with the front panel it looks like a skirt - hence the name "skirt".I've never worn them, but I think they're becoming popular among tennis players!SocksOf course, our socks will not be a complete guide to different types of clothing.Whether store-bought or hand-knit, socks keep our feet snug in the winter and sticky and sweaty all summer long. Theis made of knitted fabric, the sock can be barely a sports sock, it slips off the ankle when you run, the ankle length protects you from the cold on cooler nights and can even go up to the knee ( or Thigh High!) Hot!SweatersSweaters are upper body garments worn by women, men and children. They are made of knit fabric and are also known as "sweaters" in some parts of the world. Learn more about sweaters with this guide to the different types of sweaters!SwimsuitWhether it's a classic one-piece swimsuit or cut into two pieces to create a bikini or two-piece swimsuit, a swimsuit is what to wear in or near the water . It's made from a mesh fabric with 2-way stretch and negative comfort so it stays close to the body when wet.was originally called a bathing suit in the late 1800s, it was still a two piece fleece bathing suit, so it could not be used for swimming. Until the 1920s, swimsuits with elastic bands were invented by Jantzen, but they were still not suitable for swimming.Towards the end of World War II, the materials changed, as did the swimsuit we know today.Teddy Bear TheTeddy Bear is a relatively loose undergarment. Its thin straps can be hooked over the shoulders and "tied" under the crotch. It's kind of like wearing a bodysuit and shorts in a one-piece outfit.I remember my mother giving me a teddy bear as a “coming of age” gift when I was 16.It is made of silk satin, edged with lace on the bust and has press studs at the crotch.I love this teddy bear - I wore it in a dress as my underwear - I had to make myself one!Tie The tie is worn under the collar of a shirt and can be either a long tie or a necktie. Mainly worn by men, they are gradually gaining popularity with women.I have two great bow ties that I like to wear from time to time.One I made myself can be seen in the photo below!tightstights are tight knit garments worn from the toe to the waist. Wearing heavy deniers for warmth in the winter and lighter, silkier deniers for the summer, tights, also known as stockings, have been around since the 1960s.In addition to being available in different "Daniels" and colors, leggings are designed with design in mind - they can be polka dot, fishnet, diamond, lace and everything in between.Think of them as a great way to add glamor to an outfit!TopsWe looked at shirts and shirts, but another type of top garment is the top. It can be a crop top, a tube top, a tank top, etc., but these are referred to as "independent" by fashion designers.Whether knitted or woven, a top is a great way to add a little extra flair to your outfit, especially if you're making it yourself. If the pattern is a complex pleated pattern, the top pattern can hardly use anything.TracksuitThetracksuit is a two piece garment consisting of a 'jogger' style bottom and a long sleeved top, popular with athletes.The top can have a zipper or it can be a simple sweater. They are usually made of cotton or synthetic fibers suitable for sportswear.The 1980s tracksuits (I remember loving them!) were hot! Again, it's a zip-up top with knit cuffs and waistband, and matching joggers.O memories!T-shirt Thet-shirt is a short-sleeved knit top that has become a very popular, even everyday item of clothing.Vest TheVest is a unisex garment.
