Real life: "You're a good boy" or "boy, that was difficult." That would be how one apply the word in our everyday life.
Fashion world: "Your Boy!! Yum! Major lust!"
Take it out of its context and it WILL sound perverted. Try saying it on a street full of non fashion-y people and you may see mothers gripping their young sons tighter with a horrified expression. It's not of a human variety but a ubiquitous small quilted Chanel bag that sits firmly on the Sh*t that bloggers wear list (a bag that I secretly like. Shhhhh.....).
2. Street style
What was once a portrayal of what normal people wear on the street is now a euphemism for a new word - peacocking.

In the dictionary, the word caged has something to do with the incarceration of living creatures. In the fashion world, it's referred to bondage like heels which I suppose is a fairly appropriate term to describe the way are feet are bound within the confines of multitude of straps.
4. Skinny jeans
The title given belies the reality. Toothpick legs + skinny jeans = skinny legs. Drumstick legs + skinny jeans = stuffed sausage. The casing (aka jeans) takes the shape of the stuffing (legs).
5. Plus size
Anyone who's not size UK 8/10 or US 0/2. If you're Asian and have plenty of straight talking Asian relatives (in other words, there's no filtering process between the brain and mouth), you will be considered a plus size if you were once a UK 6 but are now a "chubby" UK 8.
