Since it is springtime, designers
insist on bringing floral motifs into
many fabrics. Dark and light prints,
small pansies and large orchids
abound. But just be careful to avoid
looking as if you have just stepped
out of the Mathei Botanical Gardens.
Springtime also brings out nauti-
cal themes, for both men and
woman. While the anchors are
hoisted, here's a further word of cau-
tion - don't go overboard; you
might be mistaken for a Maybelline
ad. evening wear. Once the little black
Some men and women are born cocktail dress, always the little black
with an innate talent for mixing and - cocktail dress. That's why it's been
matching patterns and colors, stripes,
solids and checks. When done prop-
erly, it can look intricate and stylish.
When done poorly, it can look as if
you were a contestant on the now
defunct "Let's Make a Deal" and lost.
Black, needless to say, is still the
preeminent color, especially among
around so long.
Local stores are also reporting
large sales of navy blues, khakis,
cremes, pastels, and other neutral
colors as well as burnished, earthy
shades. Brights, on. the other hand,
are reportedly not selling as well on

Slurpees. The first clothes store that
attracted my attention first was Mal-
lards. The display at the entrance had
a table full of solid colored V-neck
"Let's go in here," I said.
"I don't know," Jeff said. "This
seems too preppy to me. Preppy's
"Yeah. Let's go to The Gap."
Jeff said The Gap was a fountain
of fashion and that we might be able
to find something for me there.
"Jeans," he said at we entered the
store. "You need jeans."
"I haven't worn jeans since the
"We need to talk to someone
We talked to Matt. He was a
salesperson and a junior at Eastern
Michigan, sporting a white-knit V-
neck sweater with short sleeves and
blue trim. We asked him what was
fashionable, and if he could help me
pick out something.
"Pigment dye," Matt said. He
showed us a stained, faded brown
shirt. "It's a dye that doesn't saturate
the material. Gives it the 'worn
The shirt looked like it was
falling apart. It was $30.
"Are they a big seller?" I asked.
Matt directed us to the blue jeans
section. The jeans, which had faint
traces of blue, were dominantly col-
ored by what appeared to be bleach.
They were barely holding on to the
hangers. "Ice-washed jeans are really
big," Matt said.
"I dunno," I said, trying to imag-
ine myself in a pair. I could not.
"What else is big for spring?
He reported that short mini-shirts
and rayon are popular. Neither one
sounded good to me.
"Tell me," I said to Matt. "What
do you think of my outfit?" I was
wearing a solid white V-neck
sweater, loafers, and navy slacks. I
was hoping that maybe he'd like it,
and I wouldn't have to buy anything.
He sized me up from head to toe.
"You bought that sweater years
ago, didn't you?"
"You don't look like you're with
I decided not to buy anything just
then. I wanted a second opinion. So
Jeff and I left. The trip was not a to-
tal loss, because we learned a lot
about the latest trends. And not a
moment after we left, we spotted two
young girls wearing these jeans; one
of them was even wearing an ice-
washed blue jean jacket.
"A lot of people wear them," 13
year-old Julie Clay of Milan said.
She wore a hot pink shirt and
Reeboks in the same color.
I was busy making mental notes
to myself. Ice-washed was definitely
Jeff was busy talking to Julie's
friend from Ann Arbor, Sabrina
Young, who was also 13. "What
about Swatches?" he asked her. "Do
you guys have Swatches?"
"Uh-huh," Sabrina said with
Jeff noticed that their wrists were
void of the plastic bands. "Why
aren't you wearing them now?" he
"Oh, I don't like wearing
watches," she said.
We were confused. We went on to
other stores to try to get a better
handle on why people spend so much
money on clothes that are falling
