To Enter Coat Scene

Detailing follows the general
trend in fashion, concentrating at
the waist or the back of the coat.
Collars on tweeds remain small;
rounded and understated, letting
the interest focus on a low placed
bow almost touching the hem line
or outstanding and roomy pockets
hugging the hipline.
Sleeves Tapered
Sleeves are discreetly tapered
and pushed up to permit the dan-
gling of a bracelet or the addition
of a pair of smart, slightly longer
Tweeds are also sparked by the
addition of warm fleece linings in
bright hues to complement or con-
trast the basic color of the coat.
For the dressy occasion one may
choose an appropriate coat from
a variety of styles In fur, synthetic
fur or fur-trimmed coats.
All Lengths Shown
Furs, a perennial favorite go
to all lengths, from short opera
cape to cropped jacket to full-
length polo coat.
They add to the appearance of
fabric coats, too, but they look
nothing like the animal skins they
once were-furs come in colors!
Fox may be dyed to match a coat,
Persian lamb appears as bright
yellow to complement a tweed,
green beaver may be seen gracing
a matching mohair. Fur details
usually come in pairs-either collar
and cuffs- or collar and pockets
and they add spice to otherwise
simple styling.
The trend for synthetic furs con-
tinues to grow. They provide in-
expensive luxury, imitating almost
perfectly the "real thing."
Beaver Returns
Bestseller is the long coat in
beaver color, a delicious shade of
coffee-with-cream. Beaver shares
honors with paler otter. and a
mouton-charcoal shade. Styling
in synethetics has as wide a range
as in furs, including casual as well
as dressy models.
One big attraction of synthetic
furs is their high-fashion linings.
Sleek satins, each with a distinc-
tive pattern, line the coats with
superb luxury found usually only
in expensive furs.
The array of coats for the year
is endless. Whatever style and
fabric one chooses, it will be styl-
ish, smart, up-to-date and flatter-

Blouses Get Longer

*.'new styles featured

The traditional boy-coab is get-
ting some competition this year.
Although still the most popular
coat for casual wear, the double-
breasted boy-coat is changing its
appearance slightly. Colors are be-
coming more popular, with reds,
navys and grey supplementing the
classic natural beige..
Fabrics, too, have been inno-
vated. The newest thing is a boy-
coat made of a blend of mohair
and wool, unbelievably light, warm
and fleecy soft.
Bonus Added
A variation of the boy-coat is
the wide-wale, loden green cordu-
roy model with thick fleece lining
and a hood that folds under the
collar when* not in use. it comes
;with a bonus--weather resistant
finish that makes it doubly service-
able as well as good looking.
The corduroy coat also appears
in shortened form as the car coat.
These sporty coats, cut off' some-
where between the hipline and the
knees, come in all styles and all
fabrics and will be seen in greater
quantities as the cold-weather
season progresses.
Besides corduroy, they, come in
wools, fleeces and poplins in every
color of the rainbow and combina-
tions appearing as plaids. Linings
made of bright hued quilted cot-
tons or deep fleeces insure warmth
and add a delightful touch of lux-
ury to the sporty and practical
little coats.
Luxury Keynoted
Luxury is the keynote in all
coats this year, luxury in fabric,
detail, color and lining.
The biggest competitor to the
boycoat is still the classic tweed,'
making its appearance as a pro-
xiounced salt-and-pepper or a
monotone in colors ranging from
bright red to brilliant blue to soft

Variety is the key word this
season when it comes to skirts and
Big news right now, of course, is
that skirts are shorter. But there
is no set length. Fashion leaders
say that whatever length looks
best on a particular person is the
right length - just as long as
that length is somewhat shorter
than the length worn for the past
several years.
For those who like their skirts
really short, there are kilts--both
in the traditional Scotch plaids
and in solid colors.
Pleats are in high fashion. Not
just kick-pleats, but skirts that
have big pleats all the way around.

American Designers Show
Season's New Styles, Colors

A good deal of plaids are to be
seen, too. These plaids vary from
those in former years in that they
are in bright, bold colors and in
new patterns.
Still in campus fashions are the
basic straight skirts of solid colors.
These go especially well with the
new bold floral print blouses.
. New shades in all colors of the
rainbow are making fashion news
in blouses. Combined with this are
startling new styles.
As the skirts get shorter, blouses
get longer and many ; now are
meant to be worn outside the skirt.
These overblouses often feature
such things as a self-belt at the
hips or at the waist.
Fabrics such as drip-dry cottons
and cotton-dacron combinations
are being used more and more.
These are a real blessing for the
college woman who never seems
to find enough time to iron her
blouses. Now there are even wash
and wear jersey blouses that come
in a multitude of styles and colors
to fit every occasion.
The trim, tailored lines of the
shirt-waist and ivy-league blouses
are still much in evidence. But one
also sees ruffles and laces on
blouses for under suits or for when
the wearer feels especially femi-

Needn't Imply
This University is known to be
a casual school.
Casualness, however, does not
mean sloppiness. Being casual is
not only seen on the Diag, or a
classroom in Mason Hall but, also
at a concert in Hill Auditorium or
at the movies on Friday night.
Going through the week, Mon-
day through Friday sweaters and
skirts are worn to classes. Shet-
land crew necks and cardigans are
the rage but this by no means
excludes classics or novelty sweat-
Jumpers Popular
Also very popular for classes
are jumpers. They can be seen in
a vast array of styles-newest for
this year are the low-belted ver-
In the fall, when there is always
a possibility of rain ... trench-
coats are, omnipresent. As the
weather gets chillier, boy-coats in
camel-hair, blue or grey can be
seen all over the campus. The
coats are often sported with gay
looking scarfs.
During the week there is likely
to be a concert at Hill Auditorium
or a lecture at Rackham. The at-
tire for these occasions is heels
and a woolen dress. This is a time
to be a lady.
Dress Warmly
The weekends here at the Uni-
versity are great fun . . . a time
to get away from the weekly grind.
Many Saturday afternoons in the
fall are spent at football games.
Football weather is cool and crisp
so the word here is to dress
warmly. Most girls seem to go for
skirts with bulky sweaters.
Here at Michigan a coed defi-
nitly dresses - she just doesn't
dress up! But dressing for the
weekends is a matter of personal
interest. There is no set rule to
tell Michigan coeds what to wear.
. On Saturday nights, girls have
a choice of wearing a costume,
bermudas or a woolen dress. These
alternatives are not always avail-
able but sooner or later she will
find that she has worn each of
the above-mentioned. Invitations
to parties and dances usually
specify the attire-but if not one
can never go wrong with a smart
wool dress and heels.
Costumes Devised
Many of the fraternities on
campus feature costume parties
... this is a time to let go and
wear the craziest costumes one can
devise. only very rarely, if ever
does one ,find girls wearing-party-
taffetas and such on Saturday
evenings. Dressy dresses are saved
for red-letter nights. This is where
4asualness comes into the picture.
The idea is to look as #% it was
just an accident that you are
wearing the right thing.
Ther e are times during the year
when the coeds do get a chance
to put on their finery. This usually
happens around Christmas time
with all the different pledge for-
mals and quad formals, during
Homecoming and for J-Hop week-
This is an opportunity to go all
out. A good thing about Michigan
dances is that you can be dressed
appropriately if you wear a dressy
wool or a frilly formal.
'Sundays, the day after the great
weekend! A time to relax and get
homework done. Many spend the
mornings going to church . .
this is the day to wear hats that
are kept stored in the closet for
the rest of the week.
During Sunday afternoon, the
dress on campus is very informal

. . anything one wishes. Being
that Bermudas or slacks aren't
worn to classes here at Michigan,
many coeds feel Sundays are the
days to sport heir real sharp Ber-
Going through the week in such
a manner we see that a lot de-
pends on individual taste.

Femininity is the password for
the new look in lingerie this fall.
With the shift in waistline ac-
cent to the popular Empire line,
undergarments have also risen to
a new high in fashion. Now that
the higher waist, the slimmer skirt
and the deeper decolletage are
established facts, lingerie is
shaped as a smooth understate-
ment to the new clothes.
The empire slip features a low-
cut back with a slightly flared
skirt below the waistband. A spe-
cial knee-length slip of nylon tri-
cot has a specially designed empire1
bodice outlined in scalloped nylon
alencon-esque lace.
Sets Coordinated
The trapeze petticoat is another
innovation of the gay fashion sea-
son. The "one look" of the fall is
emphasized by the rainbow hues
of coordinated lingerie sets that
are designed to be worn together
with color-cued outfits.
The slender skirted Directoire{
line is altogether new from top to
bottom. It skims lightly down the.
hip and thigh and requires aj
smoother, more controlled foun-
dation than last year's carefree
Girdles are longer,, more .der-
riere-controlling, featuring the
phenomenal imperceptible garter.
Perhaps the most control is offered
by nylon power net with elastic
strips woven on the horizontal
plane to hug the hips better.
The dip front, originated in
France, and the high-cut seat
mean more comfort-with panels

Fluid Look Given
The very leggy and slim, round-
ed effect created by the current
style of undergarments gives a
slim, rounded almost fluid look,
as if pounds had .literally melted
Big news this season is also
made by the return of the back
and, in a more subtle way, the
bosom. With the lower dipping'
fashions, in both the back and
front, foundations are needed to
contribute the proper softly
rounded effect.

Capes Return
Deep yokes or cape collars carry
the bulk' to the top in this. sea-
son's coats. Trapeze and dolman
styles are also prominent, and the
old-favorite cape style makes a
fashion comeback. -



Daytime dresses cinch them-
selves with drawstrings or self-
belts, sometimes adding a short
jacket with upstanding ! collar.
Fringe or ruffles are often added
for a dressy note.
Fabrics have never sported such
gay textures. Fluffy mohairs and
shaggy wools team up with class-
time outfits, while the polished
fabrics of satin, faille and peaux
de soie go out on those special
Colors Range
Colors run the palette of a Van
Gogh painting, ranging from sun-
burst golds and oranges to vivid
greens. Only by late evening have
they tired a bit, toning down then
to soft blacks and greys.
Boldly beautiful are the fall
styles, with contrast the keynote.
Collars are either Juttingly-evi-
dent, or not there at all. Jackets
are very short or very long; dresses
sport high-set belts, or remain
Contrast also characterizes the
over-all picture, with small neat
hats and pale strapped shoes pro-
viding balance for the width in
texture and print.

"...Rings 'n' things and buttons

That old song had the right
idea, for any fashion - minded
femme knows that it's the finish-
ing, touches--the accessories--that
make or break an Eye-Q.
Yarn-combed wigs and brow-
hugging headache bands are also
making fashion head-lines this
fall. In shades that match the
dress, these, toppings give the
wearer a striking look of over-all
color consistency.
With skirts barely grazing the
knee, legs gain new 'importance.
Dark or colored stockings add a
flattering note to most day-time or
