observes Benkhert. In addition to
the ever-popular notched lapel, peak
lapels and shawl collars are selling
well.
LEISUREWEAR: Although
they rarely sleep in them, young
fasionable professionals can often be
found lounging around the house in
sexy silk pajamas or fun comfortable
ones done in exciting shirt fabrics.
Lifestyle dressing for the "thirty
something" generation is character-
ized by the actors on the ABC-TV
series, as well as those on "L. A.
Law." The successful careers and
lighthearted attitudes of this gener-
ation are expressed by vests layered
under sportscoats, high-top leather
sneakers with tailored clothing, sus-
penders in novel fabrics, and
whimsical boxer shorts for leisure

IN STYLE

omething interesting is hap-
pening after dark that involves
jeans. Classic black tie tradition
is giving way to more relaxed formal
dressing. There's a new man emerg-
ing who likes to bend the rules. In
Los Angeles, jeans are showing up
at chic places on actors and
executives alike and topped with
anything but a tuxedo jacket. In New
York, you often catch designer Ralph
Lauren showing up at the most
formal gatherings wearing a tux on
top of a vintage pair of jeans.
When you head for Europe, roll
up your favorite pair of jeans and
look for new trendy ways to dress
them up when you get there.
Europeans love the American look
of jeans. Jeans complement the most
expensive accessories. Real alligator
and reptile belts, flashy suspenders
and patent leather shoes are a perfect
match. Black denim goes well with
luxurious silk shirts, soft cashmere
sweaters and plush velvet jackets.
It takes a certain amount of
confidence to stir things up and go
formal in jeans. Jeans are the epitome
of the '80's fashion philosophy: "It's
not what you wear, but how you
wear it."
