Today's word is:
A retained but no longer functional stylistic feature.
Originally used in architecture and archaeology to refer to a feature whose origin was functional, but seems to only be retained as a decorative ornament or feaure.
From Greek skeuos (vessel, tool), and morphe (shape).
I'm rather a fan of plain, stylish clothing with simple concepts and streamlined looks - and while I can appreciate a fancy-looking item of clothing, a girl at work took the cake when she came in wearing a coat with the most skeuomorphic features ever encountered! The coat was covered in buckles, zips and imitation seams that were totally devoid of purpose and use. There were more useless additions than actual coat!
Sorry for the lame usage sentence!
