Girls Welcome New
4 Variety Sets Footwear

The general consensus is that
fitted coats for girls are "in" this
year. Girls have been buying A-
line coats, fitted through the
schoulders and bust and belted in

The heavy camel car coat is still
a favorite for more casual wear.
Beginning last year and stead-
ily increasing in popularity, are
the "Rain-Shine" coats with the
zippered linings. Girls have found
these coats invaluable for chilly,
rainy Ann Arbor springs and falls.
Another new favorite this year
is the stadium coat. They are
usually made of felt and often
have a hood. This year they are

are no longer just coverings for
weary feet: they are now color-
ful, comfortable and fun.
In classes the University woman
is wearing the perennial favorite
loafers. As usual, the penny-
loafer and the Italian loafers are
most popular. However, this year
they are often seen in new grainy-
textured or reptile-skin leathers.
The light wax-hide finish is
common too. Whereas a few years
ago the "uniform" in footwear
was dirty white sneakers and
white wool bobby socks, the cur-
rent fashion is loafers eitheri with-
out socks or with stockings.
For a major part of the Uni-
versity year, though, female feet
will disappear into warm, fashion-
able boots. The knee-high boots'
which were so popular last year
will be back in full force.
Following the trend of more
variety in color and texture, boots
this year will not only be tradi-
tional black leather; alligator and
lizard grains will be available as
well as the shiny patent leather
A new casual shoe is the short
pixie-ish leather boot. This comes
in a variety of colors and mater-
ials, and looks especially smart
with stretch slacks.

you keep in style with the new
lower heels and less-pointed shoes.
However, comfort is not all that

heels used to be only in dark neu-
tral colors, they now accept or
complement outfits with such col-

more fun than the shoes. The tra-
ditional solid-color knee-socks will
be back to complement winter out-
fits and add warmth. But along
with the solid-tone tights and ny-
lons are wild textured and print-
ed nylons and tights. They are
made of nylon, antron, wool, orlon
and lycra and 'ome in crazy pat-
terns of stripes, diamonds, dots
and even laces ir late-day wear.
At first they may seem radical,

had many calls for them last year
and have stocked many new

These coats are very practical
since they can be worn for both

The "little black dress" again
steals the evening scene, and it's
littler than ever-due to the in-
fluence of discotheque dancing.
Women who want to Frug fash-
ionably should choose short, loose-
fitting black crepes or wools.
The dresses also display consid-
erably lowered necklines, although
there is "no real bare bosom cam-
paign," as one local saleswoman
said. The complete discotheque
look includes lacy black stockings
and small-heeled pumps.
Try White, Too
White--especially in crotcheted
wool-and some vivid reds and
pinks are also finding their way
to the dance floor and the concert
hall. While the simple A-line and
flared styles remain, dresses have
become more feminine with the
addition of ruffles, runnels, flounc-
es, or crotcheted trimming.
Sleeveless styles predominate,
made up in crepe, lightweight wool
and ribbed silk fabrics.
One of the campus stores re-
ports that the floor length and
mid-calf length dresses are be-
coming increasingly popular. These
appear in black and white, as
well as vividly patterned sheer
Sheaths for the Conservatives
As a consolation for the more
conservative, the classic fitted
sheath is still available. According
to one local store owner, these
sheaths usually prove to be the
best sellers. Most girls derise "not
to stun anyone but rather to
show-off their figures," she said.

Broadway plays are the source
of many of the new blouse styles
now being sported on campus. The
middy has spring from "Hello
Dolly." Tom Jones" produced the
ruffled look and "Oliver" gave
birth to the blouse with the Peter
Pan collar and bow.
The flip tie is another new
look. It consists of a high neck
with an ascot flip-over. The tie is
almost men's tie length and is
worn with a tie pin.
White long-sleeved blouses with
a bow and ruffles are in greatest
demand to back up dress suits, but
other styles have large numbers
of supporters. These include
usually priced up to 7.00
