Fashion trends come and go

By ALYSSA LUSTIGMAN

Here's
the

Fashion - the word makes some of us cringe. Who
needs to pay attention to these inexplicable trends of
society, composed of a few colored threads that are
bound together and live in our closets?
w :il, almost everyone. Oh sure, you hear it every
year. What hemline is hot? (If you don't know that one
by now, maybe you should just give it up and resign
yourself to television home shopping). What silouette
will put me at the helm of the fashion frontier? What
colors? What fabrics? What shapes? What size heel will
send me to the chiropractor faster than the Visa bill
comes?
This season, rest assured, we can worry less about
what the couture designers are showing in Paris,

London, Milan and New York (not that anyone with a
mean salary under $500,000 can afford them), and
concentrate on more affordable and comfortable clothes
that can keep up with today's changing styles.
And even if you don't care about what styles are in
today, you may be surprised to discover how
fashionable you really are.
In Ann Arbor, the land of bone-chilling Michigan
winters, the first thing many people reach for is the
five pound wool sweater Grammy knit for theirl2th
birthday. Sure, it's woven of obscene colors that have
yet to be classified on the spectrum, and it's three sizes
too tight in the shoulders, but it will keep you warm.

What else is "hot" for the winter?
The simple black cocktail dress takes
a turn with interesting cutouts, and
looks fabulous with long gloves, if
you can stand wearing them. Classic
scarves - to be draped any which
way - wide belts and anything
thrown in the hair except those damn
bows can be seen as innovative
accessories. Textured fabrics,
expecially in leather, provide a
change of pace and let's face it,
they're better than polyester. The
Gap says they're selling out of acid
washed jackets and jeans, so keep
destoying those new clothes.
And speaking of destroying jeans,
isn't it funny how the knees of
everyone's jeans just spontaneously
tore at the same time? Come on,

you can't really become a hippie
overnight, even if you do buy the
tyedyes to match. But keep trying,.
someday it will happen and you will
be truly groovy. (Hey, why not give
peace a chance?)
Unfortunately, one of the costs
of keeping up with the fashion
trends is just that - the price of the
items. What can you do to beef up
your wardrobe without being forced
to dis-enroll due to failure of tuition
payment? Buy quality, not just one
time trendy items. "There's a
longevity to our styles now," said
Pothus. "People aren't throwing
they're clothes in garbage cans at the
end of the season."
"People are looking for classic,
more than trendy outfits, " said
Green. "They're buying two or three
