Dutch term or phrase: onderstukken/bovenstukken
I am translating a short press release for a fashion store, and am having problems finding a suitable translation for the above term.

The sentence is as follows:

De collectie is samengesteld uit 15 stukken (2 onderstukken, 2 bovenstukken, 2 bloezen, 2 foulards, 1 trenchcoat, 1 hoed, 1 wintermantel, 2 paar schoenen, 1 handtas, 1 cardigan, 1 ceintuur)

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

Pikey

Hi Pikey,

I regularly translate texts on clothing from English into Dutch.
The word normally used for 'onderstuk' is 'bottom' and the word for 'bovenstuk' is 'top'.

Hope it helps.
