Sorry today’s mail is a little late – this morning my oldest son performed in his school choir for the first time, so I was watching him sing! Actually, I couldn’t tell if he was really singing or pretending – ha ha – but the whole choir sounded pretty good!

So, back to today’s word. Contour when talking about fashion, refers to the general shape or outline of an object. So, you can talk about the contours of a piece of clothing. In fact, at many colleges where you can study fashion design, there is a dedicated “contour fashion” course, which looks at fashion from the point of view of learning to make clothing patterns, and designs for clothing that fits the contours of the human body.
