What is the meaning of the word “Fresh”?
At first glance of this article’s topic, you are thinking the word fresh is used in almost every English speaking persons vocabulary on a daily basis, but fresh is usually associated with food, fruits, water e.t.c. “fresh” as with every other word has many other definitions that the average English speaker might not know about.
According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary “fresh” is an adjective and is defined as having its original qualities unimpaired or free from taint. Fresh is usually synonymous with these definitions when used, but when used in a fashion context, “fresh” is quite different.
Fresh when speaking about fashion or the overall appearance of someone or something simply means fashionable or cool. This meaning though considered the slang definition of the word, is used and widely accepted by large amounts of people, so the next time someone tells you, I think your shoes are fresh or that is a fresh outfit, they simple mean that they think what you have on is fashionable.
I have been receiving emails asking why I chose to name a fashion website RateMyFresh, and what the relationship between fresh and fashion was? Well I hope after reading this article, for those who did not know what fresh meant can now understand where I was coming from.
