Sow to Cocktail Dresses

winter formal season is just
i the corner, but full formal'
vill seldom be seen.
:tail dresses are the usual
g apparel. These sport the
e just below the knees. For
g a full skirt is recom-
d, but the slimline sheath
popular. -

A sheath suit is probably the
most practical evening garment.
A short fitted jacket of biege
brocade topped a scoop neck
sheath in one suit. The jacket Is
fastened with tiny rhinestone but-
tons, and the peter pan collar and
short sleeves give the outfit the
"covered" look, appropriate for
cocktails and dinner.
Crepe, Fox
Black crepe and silver fox pro-
duce a striking sheath suit. Thej
sleeveless Italian neck sheath is
topped with a fitted jacket. A sil-
ver fox collar halos the head and
extends to the waist.
A simple dressy sheath may
serve well in a variety of situa-
tions. One particularly attractive
dress is of honey beige velvetine.
The boat neck falls in a "V" in
the back and features short
sleeves. The waist is accented with
a satin cinnamon cumberbund.
A fitted black velvet top with
short sleeves and a high collar
may be worn as a blouse or a
jacket. The' tiny black jet buttons
add spark to any outfit.
Brocade Top
A black and gold brocade top
with an Italian neck is striking
when worn with a straight blacl
velvet skirt.
The mixture of textured materi-I
als such as brocade and velvet
creates an elegant appearance.
The "separate" look is so popu-
lar that dresses resembling separ-
ates are offered. One features a
full cinnamon skirt with black lace
overlay. The black crepe top has4
a boat neck and grecian sleeve-
Gloves a Muss
The well dressed lady always,
wears gloves. On the campus,
short or three-quarter length of
fine hand stitched cotton or kid
are appropriate.
There are two types of evening!
coats: Basic coats, which may be
worn with a number of outfits,
and black and red velveteen street
length coats. The latter, a wrap-
around, features a broad lapel and
is water repellent. Water repell-;
ency is an important feature in
velvet coats, for without it the{
coat is easily ruined.j
The chesterfield cut creates a,
spindle thin silhouette and the
mink collar adds just the right
amount of dressiness.
Short jackets are often less sea-,
sonal than regular coats. Artificial+
white fur is used in the creation

Men Approve
Short Skirts,
Fall Fashions
"Short skirts are here to stay,a
but lavender doesn't appeal to
me," topped the comments of Uni-
versity men on women's fall fash-
Nine out of ten favored the short
skirt idea, whether they be kilts
(hitting above the knee), band-
stands or knee-ticklers (hitting the
middle of the knee), or skirts (hit-
ting just below the knee). The
general opinion concerning short
skirts is that they will definitely
last, "Girls today have cute fig-
ures, and there is no reason why
they should be hidden."
The tenth man strongly dis-
agrees. He believes that women
should only wear short skirts if
they have nice legs. "However,"
he continued, "there is no real way
to tell if they do have nice legs
unless they wear' short skirts."
Questioned about the range of
colors and their effects, all pre-
ferred both the new muted and
bright tartan plaids, either in slim
or pleated skirts. However some
distaste was heard concerning the
dresses. "Plaids are all right in
dresses as long as they are not too
When asked about new sweater
fashions, seven out of ten liked
the sweaters tied over the shoulder.
"Girls add *an extra bounce to
their step when wearing their
sweaters this way," was one com-
ment. The other three liked the
torso sweater style as it "shows;
off the figure more."

To Leather.
Predominant in the handwear
department this year are kid
gloves. The trend toward leather
is a change from last year's em-

BACK TALK-This strapless white satin formal features a large bow across -the back of plush red
satin trimmed with artificial flowers. The full skirt will flair gracefully across the dance floor from
the tune of the first to last waltz.

Oversized Pockets, Furry Collars
Give Fall Coats a Distinctive Air

Beauty is no longer a coat's own
excuse fo rbeing-this year the
.Practical touch has been, added.
Deep wide pockets, good for car-
rying lunches and mittens or just
keeping your hands warm are
decorating more and more casual
coats and are even being seen on
dressy coats.
Last year's innovation, the bushy,
fur collar is back and being com-
bined with a wide variety of styles
and fabrice ranging from camel
hair and herringboneto the be-
loved trenchcoat.
Chesterfield Collar
The Chesterfield collar is back
too, most frequently seen on grey
and loden green straight coats, and
of course the "boy"-coat in blue,
camel, grey, and, red which has
become more popular than ever
since being worn by Mrs. John F.
Kennedy, accompanying her hus-
band on a campaign trip.
Bright plaids are being shown in
coats for campus wear. Red and
black seems to be the most popular
combination with watch plaid
running a close second.
Dress coats are also often plaid
this season. Soft browns and golds
and heather blues are shown in
lightweight wool, and solid pastels,
Blacks with stand - away collars
share their popularity.
Tunic Look
The last word in coats this win-
ter is the tunic look. The coat is
three-quarter length, often with.
fringe on the hem and a turtle-
neck collar. Sleeves are knit and
contrast with the color of the coat.
Popular color combinations are
black and red and black and camel.
Matching mittens and scarves
are again in vogue, and bright-
colored hoods add the finishing
touch to the well-dressed coat this
Leopard-skin Belt
Heads Fashion
Leopard-skin belts are as fash-
ionable again this year -as they
were last year. Velvet and stretch
belts are also being shown widely,
and stores are featuring them with
rhinestone trim for dressy wear.
Wide belts are most in style this
year ,and the trend in leather
belts seems to be toward the soft
crushable leather.

Coiffures Become Shorter


Barettes, Combs Vanish


Milady cuts off her flowing
locks this year.
Paris is going all out for the
short-do. Baby-doll-dos are the
thing, complete with fluid bangs
and coquettish cheek curls, say
the style sheets. Waves are brief,
smooth, and softly brushed.
Throw out the barrettes, but
keep the rollers and bobby pins.
The hair has returned to the im-
mediate vicinity of the head. No
more bubbles, beehives, or other,
assorted puffy dos. They're not
twisting, knotting, pony - tailing,
dragging or sweeping.
For a bit of Paris, there's the
"Cheri Coiffure," or perhaps the
Greek goddess - type would like
the "Classic Elegance."
The "Olympian Flair" is for the
lady with a love for the heights,
perhaps a refugee from the bee-
hive. Then, the country girl might
like to simply wear "Natural
As to colors, the sky's the limit.

Leave on the old color and add
a few new. Or Miss Elegance
might want to make her debut in
hair of a completely different tone
than last year, with streaks of
three or four others. They're tip-
ping, streaking, blending and tint-
This year, though, don't ask for
a dye job or tint. We have our
hair toned, my dear. At a flick of
the bottle, you can be an ash
blonde, silver blonde, platinum
blonde or chiffon blonde.
However, in the backwoods of
Ann Arbor we remain a half year'
behind the continentals. Fear not
for your twist until next year.
The bohemians and beatniks
still have free rein. They still wear
half-twisted and half-billowing, or
all swept from ear to ear. All over
campus, we see wild barrettes,
piles of hair, holes in piles of hair,
and plane surfaces on hair. Truly,
they engineer these with a French

Distinctive Purses
Created in Fur,
Tapestry Prints
Tapestries are the most revo-
lutionary style in handbags this
year. Still popular, however, are
the fur blend and leopard, and
the usual 'lizzigator' and alligator.
The success of the tapestries
partly stems from the fact that
they can be worn with a variety
of colors.
Colorful without being gaudy,
the designs range from narratives
to purely decorative floral pat-
The fur blend and leopard are
carry-overs from last year: Al-'
ways popular have been the liz-
zigator and alligator and the black
leather bag. Regardless of the
new, exciting styles, practical-
minded college coeds seem to pre-
fer the large casual bag for casual
wear and the small classic clutch
bag for dress.

As Seen in Vogue
9 :00 to5;3--Open Fri. eve. 306 S. State

In a college community where
the main means of transportation
is walking, a coed's shoes become
as important as a good set of
tires on the Ford.
Sneakers, of course, 'are the
"universal shoe." The casual coed
may wear them without socks,
but the majority stick to white
sneakers with white wool socks,
Variations on Theme
Variations on this theme are
being provided this year with red,
blue, and black sneakers, which
seem fairly popular. Cordoroy ver-
sions are also available, as well
as last year's wool lined types
for winter.
Loafers have become walking
shoes, but they are cut lower
and have more, delicate styling
than the original loafer.
Sensible Brown Oxfords
The "sensible" brown oxford
which formerly belonged only to
"plain janes," has also been trans-
formed. Updated versions are
lightweight and lowcut, with a
more feminine look.
Contrasting the trend to more
feminine-looking shoes is the boot
fad. Boots come in all lengths,
from ankle to knee, and are usual-
ly bright-colored. They are won-
derfulfor extended walking, espe-
cially on botany fieldtrips through
the bogs.
In high-heeled shoes, the classic
pump, or slight variations, are still
the favorite, featuring bows and
other small decorations. Black op-
era pumps, in leather or suede, are
now the wear-everywhere, wear-
with-anything shoe for winter.
Other heels tend to stick to neu-
tral, dark colors for fall and win-
ter, with a few bright reds seen
here and there. Dark brown is a
special favorite for fall, because

it goes well with the "wood and
leaf" colors of fall clothes.
For formal wear, silk, satin, and
brocade dyed-to-match shoes are
in vogue. Plastic shoes, which can
be worn with many different col-
ors, are also popular for formal
As for the shape of things to
come, toes seem to be staying
pointed, or even becoming more
pointed, both on high heels, and
on flats. A new development seems
to be the squared-off toe, which
resembles a pointed toe with the
end snipped off.
While plain shell flats are most
common, there are whimsical dec-

orations which can be attached to
them, giving an unusual touch;
bunches of leaves, straw flowers,
coins, miniature footballs, and
little cat faces are only a few of
the toe decorations sold.
Flats are available in colors
which match a dress or purse, or
even covered with the same fabric
as a dress. However, the favorite
is still the solid black flat, or its
red or navy counterpart.
A slightly dressier form of the
flat is the shoe with a three-quar-
ter inch pegged heel. This "Queen
Anne heel" gives Just a suggestion
of a high heel, while keeping the
comfort of lower shoes.
