Preposition (4)

Post by SARDORBEK » Tue May 29, 2012 11:05 am

The girl was dressed …. the latest fashion but my clothes were quite … fashion.

a) after/out of
b) in/out of

We know that there are expressions like “in fashion” and “out of fashion”.
But, can we say “after the latest fashion” or “in the latest fashion”?

(b) is standard contemporary usage.
