It's driving me mad. I keep seeing it in Grazia and Instyle. ie a skirt is 'bang on'.

'Bang On' has been a phrase around forever. I barely even notice it.. Don't read the mags though, has it's meaning changed?

oh. I'd never heard it before. I keep seeing it in the fashion mags when describing something as infinitely trendy and of the moment.

It's just generally used to mean 'exactly right'. Now I think about it I think it would be classed as a fairly 'common' thing to say.. I'm surprised the glossy's have picked up on it.
