,igh fashion. But this doesn't deter Lee.
"(Dad) isn't so hot on it, but he'll have
to live with it," he says.
What would Lee do if suddenly the
Prince look becomes passe?
"I'm flexible, and I get tired of things
really easily, so I guess it wouldn't bug
me too much," mused the 19-year-old
Washtenaw Community College
student.
Around town there is no chance that
Prince, or former University student
Madonna, will go out of style.
Jenny Moore, manager of The Merry-
Go-Round, said that the store carries a
line of Prince clothing ("Purple Wear,''
naturally). It also carries a line of
Madonna clothing, of course.
A typical Madonna outfit might con-
sist of stirrup pants, an oversize shirt
with a lace t-shirt underneath, and the
omnipresent rubber bracelets.
Who buys this stuff?
Moore says she feels that most
Madonna dressers are in junior and
senior high school. The Prince look ap-
peals to males and females from ages
12 to 25, she says.

J OE STUD struts toward those
awesome thirty-foot waves, glancing
back to catch Susie's eye and grinning
to himself as his light blue boxer-style
trunks slide into the refreshing water.
And then something mysterious hap-
pens-as he emerges from the water,
his once solid trunks are now adorned
with sporty little sharks.
Swimwear is taking a daring and
creative twist this year, and the new
Jantzen solid trunk that magically
displays sharks when wet is just one
example of the trend.
Women will be revealing even more
this summer, with the high cut legs and
bikinis returning to prominence. The
high-legged maillot makes legs look
longer and slimmer for those with the
not-so-perfect legs, according to Kathy
Macksey, manager of the Hudson's
Clothing Department. The bikinis have
become especially popular among high
school-aged girls, who are still for-
tunate enough to have "young, flat
stomachs."
This summer's one pieces are "more
exciting than in the past," said
Macksey. The new suits are covering
up less thigh and less of everything
else. High-legged styles with openings
on the sides-embellished with bows,
buttons, and rings-are the biggest
sellers this year, she added.
The number one brand name, Ocean
Pacific, is "like a designer jean, though
not that much more expensive than the
other brands," Macksey said. The
average price for misses' one-piece is
$50, with juniors' sizes averaging near
$36.
"The customer needs more than one
bathing suit now," Macksey said, at-
testing to swimwear's new status as a
fashion item. Women need different
suits for swimming, tanning, and
lounging, and the modern, fashion-
conscious woman usually keeps 2 or 3
in her wardrobe, she said. For a mere
$50 per suit, who would dare pass it up?
Bright prints, especially florals, and
neons with black backgrounds are the
most desirable color patterns for the
upcoming beach outings. Beach-goers
will also see Mickey Mouse and other
Disney characters featured on some
suits-a fad which may be partly at-
tributed to the celebration of Mickey's
50th birthday last year. Another new
suit brandishes an African influence,
with black jungle animals scattered on.
a radiant white background.
Peggy Watson, events coordinator at
Hudson's, contrasted today's swimsuits
with those of ten years ago, which ten-
ded to be bulkier and unflattering. They
were full of constructions, like wires to
take the place of a bra, and solid-
colored with skirted or boxer-style bot-
toms. "A woman would gain a few
pounds just by getting her suit wet,"
Watson remarked, adding that today's
suits are "more comfortable and a bit
more daring, with an updated, stylish
look." Cotton suits have become

especially popular because, according
to Watson, they are more comfortable,
don't snag, and "swim well."
Though women should be prepared to
expose a little more skin this summer,
the trend in men's swimwear is toward
a more modest look, said Maury
Maslin, manager of Hudson's Men's
Store. The mid-thigh length boxer style
swimming trunk is the most
fashionable this year, although Maslin
expects to sell more of the barely-there
Speedos "when it warms up and men

decide they need tanning." Some men
are also opting for the knee-length
California surfer style trunks, often
referred to as "gnarlies" by the sun-
seeking crowd.
The matching 100 percent cotton top,
or camp shirt, is a hot item this year.
Most expensive of these, at $60, is the
Polo shirt, Masling said. Shirts start at
around $20, and trunks range from $22-
40.
Hawaiian prints, brighter patterns,
and black geometrics characterize

B____iBritish tradition.

For generations. Austin Reed of
Regent Street has meant one thing -
quality. With timeless British re-
finement, Austin Reed provides
a quali in clothing to with-
stand changing times and trends.

classic, self assuredlook. The
silk pleated dirndl skirt is com-
plementd dith a natural shoul-
de red jacket for a tailored, clas-
sic stance. And, doing justice to
anv>ma n who wears it, the natir-
ashouldered suit conveys self-
assurance and success. Both are in
a tan qualiylblenid of D~acron
polyester and wool worsted styled
in the U.K.hut taiilored stateside
