Though countless crazes abound

Coordination is key this season as

offer the groomed appearance char-
acteristic of the '20s and '30s.
LSA senior Matt Wolfson, a
Bivouac employee, has noticed that
this is true even for men, whose
style this season has not been influ-
enced by the trends of the '20s and
"Men now are more concerned
with looking sharper and more put
together, he noted.
He mentioned that for men Polo is
a big brand for the fall and winter as
well as Mavi and Diesel jeans, par-
ticularly dark denim.

"Everything goes back to what it
was. Fashion is just a big circle.
Now, anything reminiscent of the
'20s and '30s is very fashion for-
ward" for women.
This look includes scarves, turtle-
necks, knits, cardigans, sweater
coats, waistband coats cut to the
knee, skirts of mid-calf length, pen-
cil skirts and just about anything else
"People have been wearing them
for a couple of years," he said. "They
look nice and they're a step up from
Looking nice and wearing denim
are, in fact, big trends for the fall and
winter men's lines, according to
Richard Baadsgaard, the merchan-
diser for Urban Outfitters on State
"In past seasons, men have played
it safe, wearing a lot of Gap and
Abercrombie & Fitch, but now there
is more fashion into men's stuff,"
Baadsgaard explained. "Guys dress
Baadsgaard noted that some of the
hottest trends for men this season
include the resurgence of corduroys
and denim, while khakis and cargo
pants are on the wane. Pants with
slimmer silhouettes are -also big this
season, along with bulky sweaters
and jean jackets.
Harachian and Weiss both noted
that slimmer pants are also on the
rise in women's fashion, although the
trend has not really caught on here in
Weiss explained, "In New York you
see slimmed down pants, but here we
have a resurgence of bell bottoms.
The trends are different here than in
Anything leather and suede is also
a must-have for the female fall and
winter trendsetter, with both coming
in a variety of colors. Harachian said
purple is particularly in this year and
will be popular through the spring.
Also eve-catching are crocodile, alli-
gator, ostrich and fur clothing and
But these luxurious fabrics can be
pricey and animal rights activists
clearly don't endorse this trend.
Instead of purchasing the real thing,
Weiss suggests buying items made of
pleather, a synthetic fabric made to
look like leather, which is an afford-
able, animal-free alternative usually
more in line with people's pocket-
books and politics.
Another women's trend for fall
and winter noted by Baadsgaard is
the "sweet, innocent school girl
looks mixed with the '80s punk-rock
look," a style diametrically in con-
trast with the polished styles influ-
enced by the '20s and '30s.
"The media is really pushing this
pair of dark
trend as he purchased a

the revival of the mini-skirt, the
motorcross jacket and metallics, wil
be around for a while, Baadsgaard
predicted. Not only have designer
