Style definition for Etsy listing attributes

Here you will find a style definition or guide for each of the style types that are optional attributes in the sell on etsy form.

They used to drive me crazy! There used to be like 50 of them and I didn’t know or remember most of them! Thankfully with the new updates there are only like 11 styles so they are much easier to remember.

Sometimes I still have to look them up though, so I decided to make this style definition list.

According to Etsy these styles are optional and not necessary, but they recently published an article encouraging everyone to use them, calling them “super tags”. When you are trying to be found on Etsy and improve sales every thing counts!

Style definition for Etsy listing form

  1. Art Deco  – rich colors, geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation
  2. Art Nouveau  – curved lines, flowery
  3. Avant Garde  – Experimental & innovative designs
  4. Boho  – Bohemian gypsy “floaty” style clothes, boots, folksy
  5. Brutalist – This must be based on the Brutalist architecture which emerged in the 1950s-1970s. From the French word ‘brut’ which meant raw, and was mainly unornamented concrete made to project a feeling of strength.
  6. Celtic – There isn’t a really good definition of this style, but generally this art has a lot of spirals, swirls, triskelles. Typically from Ireland, Britain and Scotland.
  7. Edwardian – Very similar to Victorian style however clothing was a little more relaxed and hem lines were shorter, this time period was very brief
  8. Gothic – From the European late middle ages where architecture was full of columns and the use of repetitive geometric shapes with flourish (thinking of a cathedral). The modern Goth is a sub-genre of Gothic styles and is mainly characterized with the use of all black clothing, nails, hair, etc. But it can be colorful using dark and dramatic hues.
  9. Mid Century – Pure 1950s! Everything that was modern and clean lined in the 1950s. Soft colors such as lemon yellow, aqua, baby pink and sea green are used. There’s not much pattern but when there is it’s usually shaped like atoms, kidneys, arrowheads and boomerangs. Dior’s ‘new look’ (despite it being 1947!) and the TV show Mad Men are perfect examples. A lot of stuff that’s mid-mod is also called Eames era and atomic age.
  10. Minimalist – following the mantra ‘less is more’, this is modern with the most simple terms. Natural materials, stainless steel, straight lines, smooth textures, functional. Minimalist style contains objects and fashion that does little more than serve it’s function, all adornment is shunned.
  11. Victorian – Anything modeled to the last half of the 19th century is ‘pure’ Victorian, with the high peak being 1860s – 1880s. Though the Victorians were mad for color, Victorian style now is usually the ornate, lace-and-beaded black-on-black that was popular in the 1880s – 1890s, with high button boots, lace cuffs and cameo jewelry.

If you are looking for a style that isn’t shown, then checkout this list I came across on the Etsy forums, which has all 50 of the ones that used to be in the sell on etsy form. This list of attributes was done by sparrowsalvage several years ago, and I have incorporated some of her definitions also.

Timeless pearl earrings

Several years ago I had the opportunity through The Artisan Group® to submit these delicate sterling silver freshwater pearl earrings to the wardrobe stylist of the ABC TV series “Scandal” for consideration of use in the upcoming season.

Freshwater-Pearl Earrings

To be honest I had never seen this TV show, so I watched several episodes that were on Netflix.

The clothing and jewelry were very conservative, so I made these dainty earrings to submit. I never heard if they were ever used on the show, but I continue to sell them because of their timeless beauty.

Perfect for all occasions including weddings, business attire, church, etc. These can be purchased on my website ($30.00)

They can also be found for purchase in my Etsy Shop.
