If you've ever doubted the cultural importance of fashion then look no further than the wild, hilarious word bank of invented terms for our mother tongue, and you'll be assured that what looks merely superficial is in fact socially meaningfully.

In other words, fashion comes up with some hilarious nouns every once and a while.

There's fashionista; there's floriental. But the latest and greatest fashion neologism has to be "shoebootie." Pronounced just like the African nation Djibouti (Ji-Bu-Ti), shoebootie is the collective term for one of fall's biggest trends in footwear: the shoe boot.

Shoebootie hasn't made its way into the dictionary yet, but I guarantee that any fashionista worth her floriental salt will know what you are talking when you drop that one in the shoe department of Neimans.
