taffeta gives rise to a long black
dress ws ith a throat framed in
black feathers. Peeking out from
underneath is a ruffled taffeta
underskirt in a bright fuschia, a
dramatic contrast to the black.
Again a wealth of taffeta puts
together a delicious evening dress
in brown, same cut. A glittery
brown and silver lace top at-
taches to l e n g t h s of bustling
brown taffeta with brown folds
at the back.
Jumpsuits are making the
after sundown scene, being in-
fluenced mainly by the age old
practice of polygamy and the
Arabian nights. Ali Baba never
imagined such glitter in gleam-
ing silks, beaded sequined vests,
and bright, flashy metallics. A
sparkling brocade patterned in
silver threads gives a fantastic
shirt and pants effect. The shirt
with wide, pointed collar, full
shirt sleeves and sashed over
pants that widen all the way
down to the ankles, resembles
customary harem attire. A rich
topping to a see-through jump-
suit is a long sleeved velvet tunic

trimmed in gold braid, worn with
a paisley silk muffler.
Pants are definitely empha-
sized in formal attire. Not only
is this year's evening fashion
flattering and elegant but ex-
tremely economical, especially
concerning the two piece jump-
suit. Mrs. Davenport, manager

from the Collin's Shop feels two
piece jumpsuits are definitely
practical since you can get so
much use out of them. The top
doubles as a dress when worn
without the pants.
As the result of my dubious
observations I would say that
this year's evening fashions are
daring you to discard the con-
ventional and live up to that
title Eve gave you. Not that
you have to be so enthused to
try and find yourself a snake-
tempting Adam' counterpart
will do.

Formally Speaking

0 0 *

Want to feel all woman for
a change? Formal evening wear
has finally broken away from
the traditional "hig school
prom" look. The female is no
longer restricted to the Shirley
Temple dress tIte that professes
to cater to the so-called "femi-
nine" population. Sugar and
spice should be back in grade
school vhere it belongs not on
the college campus. Yot've
come a long way, baby"----you've
grown up and now the time has
come for you to emerge from
behind that false masquerade of
pseudo-feminity and show them
what that innocent wide-eved
little tiger is really like! All the
passion, gaeity, charm, fickle-
ness, and grace of being female-
is not to be stifled anymore. for-
inal wear is far from being for-
mal rather a betwitching tool for
your nocturnal life.
Great and glorious is the eve-
ing look: long sleeves, sweep-
ing skirts, rich colors and fab-
rics, bands of flounces, fringe,

feathers, metallics, sequined and
beaded vests, and naughty neck-
lines. All put together in the
most avant garde combinations
possible, meant only for the dar-
ing adventurous yote that's been
in deep dark seclusion.
Velvets and chiffons are 'T IL
fabrics of the season. Velvets
are deep, plush and Iuxurious.
Chiffon is breezy, carefree, and
one of the most versatile fabrics.
It can be worn all year round and
take any shape it pleases-let it
bounce in accordion pleats or
float while you walk. Necklines
are super-brave, plunging lower
than any other year - a great
transition from grannie's high
collar. Usually accompanying the
low necklines are the clinging
crepes and silks that give a light,
airy effect as vou move. A really
new innovation for evening is
the wet look, a mixture of rayon
and acetate giving a shiny vinyl
