date your wardrobe inexpensively,
since they can be worn under many dif-
ferent tops and are less costly than buy-
ing other types of padded shoulder
Tapered pants come in two versions:
stirrup pants and slim cropped pants,
both of which are in style. They are
found in several different fabrics, such
as fleece (thinner than the usual sweat-
suit material but still labeled "fleece"),
cotton and denim.
Of course, you can't go wrong with
what is considered the basic clothing
item on college campuses across the
country. That is — have you guessed
yet? — jeans. Designer jeans are not
as popular as they once were. What is
popular are Levi 501 blue jeans;
washed and faded jeans; and Union
Bay, Guess and Esprit jeans.
But your wardrobe should not con-
sist entirely of jeans, stirrup pants and
big tops. Undoubtedly, you will find
yourself wearing casual clothes most of
the time, but there will be occasions
(hopefully) for dressing up — to go
dancing and to parties.
For parties, you could wear one of
the new and stylish skirts, either a
miniskirt (the hemline about knee-
length) or a slim, long skirt with trumpet-
style pleats at the hemline. Another
good dress-up choice is the classic
lambswool dress with a crewneck; it
can be worn with a vest, for a casual
look, or with a belt, for a dressier look.
On the other end of the spectrum,
workout clothes are popular, especially
for those aspiring not to gain the in-
famous "Freshman Five" — pounds,
of course. Body suits, oversized sweat-
shirts and cotton sock-legwarmers are
good items to have. Besides their prac-
tical use for workouts, the body suits
and oversized sweatshirts can be
dressed up or down, with jeans, stirrup
pants and socks with crazy designs.
Now that you know the latest in
clothes, how about the latest colors?
Brights are the norm this fall: turquoise,
teal, purple, pepper green, red, black
and white combinations, and mustard
yellow and black combinations. Paisley
and plaid prints are shown in these
vibrant colors, perfect for mixing,
matching and layering.
Layering and accessorizing can pull
colors together and help to dress up or
down any outfit. Layer socks and
anklets over stirrup pants, put on a pair
of Rebok tennis shoes or high tops,
and you're ready for class. Wear tex-
tured hose with heels or flats and
slender cropped pants, and you're
ready to go dancing.
Add some costume jewelry, chunky
and colorful. Dangling earings are in.
So are opera-length pearls, which
come in different colors and are worn
a few strands at a time. Kilt pins, which
have dangling charms, and rhinestone
jewelry are also popular.
Another important accessory is your
handbag. A good bet is a medium-
sized leather shoulder bag; favorite
colors this fall are pink, plum, royal blue
The handbag colors correspond to
this season's popular coat colors, such
as purple, royal blue and grey. A good
all-around coat is a three-quarter length
tweed, in a medium weight, which can
be worn from fall through winter. Hip-
length jackets in leather-canvas com-
binations are also popular.
There are a few other items to toss
in your trunk before you close it. Some
summer clothes, like Jams and t-shirts,
may be needed for an Indian summer
(and no air conditioning in your dorm
room). A bathrobe is a good invest-
ment, especially for those living in coed
dorms. And, in case you haven't heard,
the lastest rage is bedroom slippers
with animal characters.
