les Still in Vogue of Casual Wear
Unsual Hats Favc
By JUDITH OPPENHEIM
MIX AND MATCH--Sweater and skirt combinations range from
the plaid skirts and complimenting sweaters such as the stone
green ensemble on the left to matching sweaters and skirts like
the outfit on the right, which is bright purple.
At the University, casual clothes
haven't changed much in the past
season, and last year's styles are
still much in vogue, Skirts are
still much the same, although
there are more full skirts now
than straight ones.
If one doesn't care to shorten
skirts, a relative newcomer to the
fashion scene, the "knee tickler"
is about an eighth of an inch
longer than a kilt and an eighth
of an inch shorter than an ordi-
nary skirt. It provides a definite
diversion from the ordinary skirt,
and in that it is the only new
variety this season.
Plaids are varied this season,
some in most unusual color com-
binations, but still attractive
enough to lend an added touch of
variety to a wardrobe.
Fewer of the classic tartans are
being shown, and there is a new
insurgence of synthetics, muted
pastel plaids in harmonizing'
shades of brown and gold, crushed
grape, turquoise and blue.
These are most often worn with
the traditional white blouses and
colorful,_ bulky cardigans. The
sweaters, worn with arms in the
sleevs or draped papoose style
around the neck, lend the solid
color to offset the skirt.
Blouses also have remained
much as last season. This is large-
ly as a result of the "~vllage col-
lar" having appeared on the scene
so late last winter.
Mandarin collars are seen more
frequently, some with intricate de-
tails, some quite plain. Some have
turned to the unusual tunic over-
blouse with sash.
Futu re tye
The word from Paris is that
leather has become the newest
addition to the fashion naturals.
It is being used in every possible
way nowadays, and it's so soft
and supple that it defies you to
tell it from the marvelous country
tweed or jersey.
The American market will soon
be deluged with these leathers.
Water repellency has paved the
way for a rash of them, rangingj
from suede shoes to kidskin coats.
Futher examples of the leather
trend are the "glovey" little suits
and dresses now appearing on thef
scene. One such suit is in bright'
cognac suede, with a fringed belt
loosely tied low. It's dress counter-
part is of soft blue suede, sashed
Leather is expensive at this
point, but the copies of the copies
will soon be available, and the
rush will be on. Retailers predict
real success for leather - the
newest of the fashion naturals.
Hats on campus are generally
off, in deference to the coed's sim-
Church parties and weddings
bring out the fuss and feather
hats. This season the word is furs
and feathers with high crowns.
Also interesting are the jewel
and flower - under - glass treat-
ments. Sparkling sequins and
realistic posies are arranged on
bases of satin, tulle, brocade, or
velvet and then covered with misty
layers of veiling.
In a more casual vein, heavy
wool yarns are crocheted with
metallic threads to fashion bum-
per bill boxes and fez toques that
coordinate wonderfully with fall's
knits and tweeds.
Interwoven feathers of all colors
and designs are being worn. Best
example of this is the seemingly
leopard skin which in reality is
made of feathers.
The general look is close to the
head, with the sides rising to a
SITTIN' PRETTY -- This typical collegiate ensemble centers
around a skirt length kilt of a red tartan plaid. The white blouse
has the popular narrow round collar, and the band along the

Versatile' Suits Fi
Everly Comning Evet
By PAT GOLDEN
Almost any style or weight
sweater is appropriate this year,
but there's only one way to wear
it: tied around your neck.
This novel idea is particularly
handy for bike riders and book-
laden pedestrians, when the weath-
er is too warm to warrant com-
plete bundling up. As the tempera-
ture drops, however, more and
more coeds will be untying the
hangman's knot and wearing their
sweater the normal way, with
arms in the sleeves.
The classics, crewnecks and'
cashmeres are very much in fash-
ion this year. Crewneck cardigans
have come out in a much wider
color range, and with variations
in weight and fuzziness. The new-
er colors, turquoise, lavender and
shades of rust are so popular that
few stores are offering classic
navy blue. Brown, which was dif-
ficult to find last year, is readily

toned, waterproof wool have been

this season. They reflect a general
trend toward intricate hand-knit
patterns. Cable-stitched cardigans

For the first time in several
years, turtle-necks are back. Dou-
ble-turtle necks, and turtle inserts
are some variations on the high-
necked theme. Stand-away roll col-
lars and cowl necklines like turtle-
necks, accent the eyes. However,
they sometimes overpower short-
haired girls with small faces.
The shaggy look continues this
year with mohair, brushed orlon,
and fuzzy wool. Many mohair
sweaters are patterned in several
colors, with the long hairs blend-
ing for a blurred effect.
Other patterned sweaters are

designs, and stamped floral de-
The trend toward color-match-
ing is even greater this year, and
sweaters are available in a fan-
tastic array of shades to facilitate
matching even the most obscure
purples and greens. Fast-becom-

coordinated crewneck cardigan'

Gems Swing Low
Jewelry for fall is created in the
image of the fashions it accom-
panies. The trend toward opulence
in fabrics, for example, is re-
flected in the lavishness of over-
grown bib necklaces. Big, bold,
and bulky, these capitalize on the
simplicity of the new necklines.
The 1930s look in clothes is
largely responsible for a new mati-
