oversized sweater, or even a used overcoat, the
classics have returned to women's fashion.
Although these clothes may have been
somewhere else before, it should only take one look in area
stores, magazines, and around campus to see that they are
now being combined in new and innovative ways.
"The colors, sizes, and uses for today's clothes are dif-
