Variety of Jackets
In the waist-length jackets, Miss
Geddes showed a selection featur-
ing a variety of material and
Some had sweater-like collars,
while other had collars that could
be converted into hoods. The "bear
hug," or fleecy type nylon has been
especially popular this year, the
trim brunette pointed out.
"Ski pants will have the ordi-
nary elasticized rubber waist,
tapered legs, and zippers on the
sides near the bottom of the
legs," Miss Geddes said.
More popular than the sports-
wear will be winter lounging wear,
she predicted.
This includes slacks which will
probably not be worn for skiing,
but in lodges after the sports fun
is over, she explained. Basic plaids

continue their popularity in
"lounging" slacks, but "antique"
browns and greens are coming into
their own, Miss Geddes averred.
And each pair of slacks can be
part of a "well-planned" coordi-
nate outfit, she said. For example.
there are matching slacks for fur-
blend and cashmere sweaters.
Heavy Cashmeres
"Heavy, bulky cashmeres are
selling more than usual," Miss
Geddes revealed. "They can even
be worn on skiing jaunts.",
The vest-type sweaters, formerly
worn only in the spring or early
fall, are selling well, she reported,
and crewnecks are just as popular
as ever,
"The girls are going for a few
hooded sweaters, but not many,"
she added.
Miss Geddes' favorite outfit,
which emphasizes the "bold but.
beautful" in styling, is a four-
piece,' flower- designed, muted
toned group of coordinates, which
includes a vest, jacket, slim slacks,
and a skirt.

BRIGHT SKI TRAILS-Half the fun of skiing, it appears, is in choosing the outfit; for this year the
trend in women's ski clothes is "bright but beautiful." Skiers will make a striking picture as they
glide down white slopes in red, muted green, 'champagne', or carmel ski suits. Also being shown this
year are after-ski outfits of furblend or cashmere sweaters with matching slacks.
