Jackie Claims 'First in Fashion'

By KAY PAYANT
Throughout the history of fash-
ion there have been few Ameri-
cans leading the parade of best-
dressed women, but since Jacque-
line Kennedy became First Lady
in 1960, she has had an undisput-

I

ed claim to the title of "First
Lady of Fashion."
Jackie's simple styles are in-
expensively copied. So one does not
need to look far to find an almost
perfect replica of her. The "Jack-
ie look" is popular with everyone
from college girls to suburban
housewives.
The key to obtaining the "Jack-
ie look" is simplicity. Clean, un-
cluttered lines are a must, and
styles must never look contrived.
They must look as if they "just
happened." This deliberate plain-
ness that must never look deliber-
ate has precipitated a change in
women's fashions that shows little
signs of abating.,
Weird Combinations
Weird color combinations are
another aspect of this new look.
Jackie's appearance in pink slacks
.' and aa orange sweater caused a
storm of controversy among fash-
ion experts, but now combinations
likethis are received with little
amazement.
Jackie has many favorites, in-
cluding bulky sweaters, single and
double strands of pearls, sleeveless
dresses, princess-likes and stand-
away collars. Because of her love
of color, she is never inconspicu-
ous when she appears in public
with her husband. She is always,
as one fashion expert put it, "A
marvelous spot of color."

nored by her and she wears most
colors throughout the year.
Her love for Paris fashions has
been greatly criticized, often by
other best-dressed women such as
Clare Booth Luce. This famous
lady senator and former diplomat
has stated that the wife of the
President should wear American
clothes and that buying Frenph
gowns hurts our clothing industry.
In fact, however, Jackie buys
most of her clothes in the states.
She favors many American design-
ers, one of her favorites being
Oleg Cassini.
Greatest Influence "f
Although all the Kennedy wom-
en are leaders in fashion, Jackie
is without a doubt the greatest in-
fluence. It was said that on her
Indian trip during the spring of
1962, by the end of the day all
the women in the Kene'dy reti-
nue had rumpled and untidy
clothes. Jackie alone retained her
neat, uncluttered look.
Jackie's influence on today's
fashion is immeasurable and she
has been termed the most potent
force in international fashion.
Scarves Return,
Enhance Collars
Scarves have made a return to
the fashion scene. Perfect entrance
for an ascot, the sweater suit with
the open collar ease. Soft lady-
like fabrics of sliks and chiffons
in shapes of triangles can be gent-
ly knotted at the neck for a sil-
houette of the new "natural
shape."

Small Hats
Gain Usage
For Season
By MICHAEL SATTINGER
Small hats, especially the bowler
types, are becoming popular with
young women for the spring and
summer months.
In the past, the younger wom-
en have tended to avoid full-size
hats and have instead resorted to
whimsy veils, hatlets, circlets, coif
pillboxes, caps and shells. These
styles were termed by one millin-
er as being "not hats, but apolo-
gies."
This year the non-hats will often
employ straw fabrics and candy
straws. Hat designers are empha-.
sizing novel aspects of style and
treatment to provide a large varie-
ty of such non-hats.
Little hats have been taking
ground away from non-hats be-
cause of their youthful appeal.
They have also become more digni-
fied because of their populariza-
tion by the First Lady, Mrs. Jac-
queline Kennedy.
Often, these smaller hats will be
made of flowers in multi-colors.
They may include veils.
The main lines of manufacturers
will include many hats with brims.
One of the most popuar hats with
young women will be the small
sissy sailors with the brim wori
down.
Also worn will be bretons and
rollers with the brim rolled and
turned up. European fedoras will
make an appearance with a "man-
nish" look. The brim will snap
into a back-flipped position.

By DIANE PINE
and GAIL BLUMBERG
It has long been thought that
the super-sophisticate on the Uni-
versity campus was the short
skirted, knee-socked and loafer
clad women.
But a new "type" has emerged;
she is the pseudo-New Yorker
(PNY). Her personality manifests
itself in an unusual choice of
shoes, stockings and jewelry.
The PNY's taste in shoes runs
primarily to stacked heels and
sandals. Although stacked heels
have long been popular, spring
brings new, dramatic variations.
Patent and glossy leathers in clear
reds, blues, and yellows, as well
as in the traditional brown, black
and white, are being seen again
this year.
Reptiles, Straws
Reptiles and straws are giving
new life to the traditional style.
Multi-tones, mixed leather and
fabric, and wild fabric patterns are
being used to complement the
simpler lines and solid colors of
warm-weather fashions.
An interesting variation on the
stacked heel theme is the sling-
back shoe which appears in the
full gamut of colors and.styles.
In warmer weather cur PNY
comes into her own. She is seen,
barelegged, in all types of sandals:
thongs, slingbacks, open toes.
Tight Fondness
In early spring, the PNY may
be distinguished by her fondness
for tights. These are seen in many
shades, but mainly in black.
The black tights may be found
II

in a variety of patterns, including
diamond shapes and stripes. In
warmer weather, these are aban-
doned in favor of bare legs.
Our type delights in-the so-
called "arty" jewelry. Her earrings
tend towards lengthy chains with
various ornaments at . the end,
large hoops of gold and silver, and
any other interesting and unusual
shape. Particularly popular this
year are earrings resembling pit-

chers, wooden shoes, and antique
sailing vessels.
Link, Bangle
There has been a large influx
of imported jewelry. The over-
laying of gold on black metal is
found in the Spanish imports. One
sees earrings, link and bangle
bracelets, pendants, pins, and
rings done in this manner.
The Israeli imports are blue
enamel or stone on silver back-'

grounds, also found in all types
of jewelry. Bangle bracelets are
popular in domestic as well as im-
ported materials, copper, gold, sil-
ver, wood, and plastic.
From the West Indies come long
ropes of beads made of shells,
seeds, beans and clay in vibrant
colors. Add to this gold chains,
and Venetian beads and that com-
pletes our PNY's jewelry ward-
robe.

New Personality 'Type' Manifests Unusual Taste

... sets style
Her .whims .are the concern of
every hat manufacturer and can
be seen by looking at the hats
of any crowd of women. A year
or so ago, she favored pillboxes
and this style was about the only
one found on the market during
that time. Sometimes she declines
to wear a hat and this always
causes a stir.
Shuns Rules
Jackie Kennedy rebels against
conventionality and refuses to
conform to some of the basic rules
of fashion. Such rules as certain
colors for certain seasons are ig-
