Cute Clothes
Fashion Terms

This cute clothes page is dedicated to the Princess of Fashion.  She enjoys clothing that is cute and suggested that this page be added to our terms guide.

cute clothesCute was originally a shortened form of acute in the sense "keenly perceptive or discerning, shrewd." In this sense cute is first recorded in a dictionary published in 1731. Probably cute came to be used as a term of approbation for things demonstrating acuteness or ingenious design, and so it went on to develop its own sense of "pretty, fetching."  An easy definition of the word is simply, "attractive or pretty in a youthful or dainty way".  An example would be a cute puppy.  A better example for here on Apparel Search would be a "child wearing a cute outfit" or a "cute kid with pigtails".  An adjective of cute would be appealing or attractive; especially in a pretty way.  The word can be used as a noun as cuteness.

Clothes means garments for the body; articles of dress; wearing apparel. Basically, it refers to the pants, shirts, shoes, and undergarments you are probably wearing today.  You can read more about the meaning of clothing and various clothing categories in our definitions section.

Where can we find cute clothes?

Figuring out where to shop for cute clothes is not as easy as one might think.  Cuteness is a subjective term describing a type of attractiveness commonly associated with youth and appearance.  Subjective opinions are based on or influenced by personal feelings or tastes.  Therefore, our opinion in regard to what cute clothes look like may be different than your opinion.  It is important that consumers hunt around for fashion that they personally find to be cute or appealing.  The decision regarding the level of cuteness should be based on their own personal tastes.  For this reason, we are hesitant to tell you exactly where to find cute clothing.  However, we are willing to make a few suggestions that we hope you will find to be enjoyable.
