" UTHAT'S NEW for Spring? is a
very popular question in many
circles, and "Fashion experts" don't
have bold, innovative responses this
season. Instead, they can tell you what
is out: polyester, textured polyester,
and polyester bell bottoms. Now nore
than ever rules of fashion have been
discarded for fun and style. '
Fashion and style are two completely-
different notions. Although they may go
hand in hand, frequently style gets left
in the fitting room. Fashion can be
bought but style has no price and is
rather hard to find.
Let's face it, what ever is "new" this
spring or "hot" in July will certainly be
deader than a doornail in September.
Style is refined and defined by the
wearer and not by Calvin Klein or
whoever is "in" this season.
Style is rather artistic, but that does
not mean you have to suffer for it.
Someone's personal style may or may
not be deemed fashionable, in the short
run, but fashion should not be a raison
d'etre either.
Style does not mean that you're
obligated to wear one cut of suit or one
make up color for the rest of your life.
People who stick to one fashion vehicle
as an excuse for style for the duration of
their natural lives are fooling them-
selves. They become caricatures.
People who have style aren't con-
strained by fashion guidelines but use
them to their advantage. They draw on
all sources to develop their look, and
they don't force themselves into looks
even though fashion magazines give the
go ahead.
For example, oversize pink and black
sweatshirts are everywhere right now
and it appears that 50%of all females
east of California wear them. People
with style don't run to Lord and Taylor
for their sweatshirts, they cut the
sleeves of their old ones and paint on
their shirts themselves.
Stylish people may purchase their
clothes from "legitimate" stores, or in
unassuming and frequently surprising
places, or create their own. There are
no restrictions here.
We photographed people inAnn Arbor
who do not limit themselves to what they
see around them. They have strong
looks and tastes that combine to give
them real panache. They dress as in-
dividuals, not to impress themselves on
others, but to please themselves. By the

By Melissia Bryan
way, since the shock effect in fashion
ended a few years ago, will the people
in leather jackets and chains please exit
stage right? These models may turn
heads because they look different, not
because they are offending others in
pursuit of some vague political
statement or because they resent their
mother's influence in the fourth grade,
but because they're distinctive.
When these people were asked the
question, "Why do you dress as you
do?" Regardless of the model's per-
sonal style the responses indicated the
same train of thought. Each person . . ._
stated that if he went out of the house
following the accepted conventions of
fashion, he wouldn't feelas good about

-, :::

The Izod Khaki regimen is an excuse
for not being able to match colors
The other models Kat, Theresa,
Khalid, and Jennifer are influenced by
European fashion trends. European
fashions allow more freedom of ex-
pression and are more innovative than
American trends. That does not mean
that these four people have their clothing
flown in from Milan every season, but
rather they look around for other in-
fluences in their dressing instead of

"If I go out in plain blue jeans, and an
Izod shirt, and sneakers , I feel like I
don't have make up on. . . I don't feel
dressed," said Kat.
Khalid agreed, "If I'm wearing a
'dirty old man' coat and polyester
flares (NOT THAT I ever would)" he
said, "I just wouldn't feel as good about
what I'm doing."
Style reflects the attitude of the
wearer, perhaps it is the definitive
statement of personality.
Another opinion expressed was that
they do not consider their views and
opinions mundane, and they do not
want to be perceived as "one of the
crowd." They want to state their per-
sonality and self-acceptance indirectly
by their clothing rather than screaming
it from the stone benches of the Diag.
The assimilation of attitude, per-
sonality, and fashion is the cornerstone
of style.
You may find it incongruous to see a
classically dressed man along with all
these supposed Euro-fashion victims.
Wrong. If you look closely you will
notice one great exception. Bill takes
the individualistic stand and wears
nothing by Ralph Lauren! Shocking
isn't it? he has an incredible style
because he does not play the designer
label game in putting his wardrobe
His clothes are purchased in good
stores, they fit beautifully, have great
lines, but they are understated and they
reflect the care with which they are
chosen. That is classicism, not wearing
the preppy uniform.
