HE ONCE-PASTEL SUNSET now shines a burnished bronze as it hovers over a
cool, crisp autumn days-it's time to bring your toasty woolens, the ghosts of
autumns past, out of cedar hibernation; time to dress to capture the mood of leaf-
covered days and star-filled nights, to emphasize the glow that paints your cheek.
Happily, it doesn't take a fat wallet to look like a million. Nor is it necessary
to simply replace your existing wardrobe.
"Black is a fashion staple, and even more so this season," according to Bivouac
buyer Lisa Weiss. And how true that is. The basic black pant or skirt already
hanging in your closet works wonders with this season's approach to color. Jewel
tones dazzle and delight to replace the
- __traditional bright. Compare the power of
luscious cranberry to that of loud, racy red.
Topaz outshines brash yellow. Sky blues or
nautical navies take on the richer glow of
sapphire, and kelly green graciously bows to
Start constructing a look with that basic
black bottom and top it with the piece that
performs double duty-your basic shirt.
Under a sweater for a chilly afternoon at
Michigan Stadium or all alone to keep cool
at the bar, a single, carefully chosen shirt
builds a strong foundation for cold-weather
fashion panache. This season's most
successful shirts glow with the lustre of
gemstones without the outrageous price. The
women's chambray work shirt takes its
gems seriously and for a classy version of
the faithful blue, go for the pearl and
rhinestone studded shirt.
If you prefer a less literal interpretation of
jewels, check out Jacobson's Miss J Shop's
brassy rayon shirts in geometric or tapestry
prints that go equally well to class, a
favorite watering hole, or the snazziest of
nightspots. Rayon is an especially good
choice if you don't have much faith in the
staying power of simulated gems or
metallics, which make a comeback from
their brief disco-era stint.
Men can add a jewel lustre to their
wardrobes by investing in an innovative
U update of an old friend - the turtleneck from
Marty's. Polished cotton lends itself to a
showy but never obnoxious sweater
foundation that even the most conservative
male can wear with ease.
