Back to the topic!
How do I name my looks?
There's really no particular rule I follow because there isn't one but as much as possible, I try to veer away partly from the obvious. The reason why I did not name this particular look "Blue Camouflage" is because it would be stating the obvious. And besides, what the hell is a blue camouflage?
Here are my techniques
- Pick one color from the look. The most dominant from the whole ensemble will do.
- Don't mention any brands (though "Forever 21" would be nice if you're projecting youthfulness in a look and the clothes you're wearing we're from the brand itself —plus points!)
- Rely on the mood, feeling, atmosphere, ambiance of the whole setup. Take inspiration from the (blue!) background too!
- Mentioning prints can sometimes be too cliche. Exchange the print to something related to it. (camouflage = ammo)
- But there can be lazy times. If inspiration won't kick in, just pick any words even those that are irrelevant. Like what I've said, there are no rules. It's your look after all.
- It makes the look memorable
- Easy to identify; no need for further explanations
- Lastly, it gives depth. A simple pink lacy dress worn (and photo taken) on a sunny afternoon named "Sweet Disposition" beats "Pretty in Pink" by a quarter and a mile.
