however, a toe-ring and leg bracelet, presumably for indoor
wear only. This somewhat startling ornament is an ankle

ring on the big toe.

In between these points she can wear pearl garments-
ranging from bibs, bras and boleros to tunics and toursers.
The lustrous spheres that once adorned only ears, nick, wrist
and fingers have migrated to strange new locations, such
as the chunky circlets for the upper arms and rings chummily
joined to bracelets by chains.
As for that traditional necklace-my, how it's grown!
It no longer merely encircles the neck-it has multiplied
from one strong to dozens of varying lengths, it hangs down
to the hemline, girdles the waist, loops and drapes to form
body jewelry and ties itself into knots a Boy Scout would
find hard to duplicate.
Once all this is accomplished, if there's any extra skin
space around, the jewel-conscious girl will find something
for that area too. Fortunately, she's got 10 fingers, at least
eight of which can be outfitted with a ring. This tends to

'Wet,' and Wrinkle-Free

"Slippery when dry," that's the story of the "wet look,"
the fabric-type which leads the way for this year's lines of
r call- holiday fashions.
lapel The "wet look," formerly of the 1930's and other by-
leated gone eras, has long been overdue in coming back to Ann
Arbor. The "look" has been big in Paris for over a year and
ing to "in" in New York for at least half that time. The glossy
"for shine, using some of the new synthetic materials, has hit
into almost every aspect of women's apparel: dresses, skirts,
-- undergarments, boots, purses and perhaps ironically, bath-
° !ing suits which seldom get wet anyway.
Cashmere too, has hit big with the new lines. It's a
favorite in sweaters, vests, and even some skirts.
Wools and wool blends are having a facelift, with the
heavy emphasis on the brushed and raised type of texture.
Double knits, around for quite a while, are being pushed
hard this year.
Two Acetate-rayon fabrics are making it. Satin looking
clothing, "in" for the past year, is really coming in to Ann
Arbor stores, especially for the more expensive lines. Crepe
too has come in very strongly for this holiday season.
One of the more significant changes in fabrics is the
beginning of the "Travera Era." Polyesters have been quite
popular for a long time but the newer Travera is one of the
best. Katy Clarey, of the Bagpiper points out that Travera
is much in the same vein as "Wear-dated clothing only
better." Janice Prendergast of Mary Dibble mentions that
"Travera is used for all kinds of clothing-dresses, skirts,
vests, pants and pant suits."
Travera clothing should become very popular in Ann
Arbor where a lot of people do a lot of traveling. As wrinkle
free as possible, most items made with this synthetic are
