orrect Clothes For Rushing,CampusWear Feature Fall


Woolen Skirts
And Sweaters
Seen In Class
New Reversible Coats Are
Practical; Old Jewelry Is
Worn Over Sweaters
Gay Plaids Run Riot
The campus clothes of this year
plus the tried and true classics of
every year are destined to brighten
even the most boring history lectures
or French bluebooks. Although you
will want to scintillate on the week-
ends remenber that you are being
viewed almost every minute of the
day and your everyday appearance is
really just as important as how you
look in your most sophisticated form-
Before we delve into the intricacies
of campus clothes it is necessary to
discuss that sweater and skirt combi-
nation which is really the firm foun-
dation of your school wardrobe. Good
wool skirts,. trimly tailored, can be
found in all sorts of fall colors such
as deep wine, bright green and some
new blues. Then tweeds run riot in
all sorts of startling combinations
such as basically a blue skirt with
green flecks.
"The Campbells Are Coming" and
their plaids plus all the other Scot-
tish clans abound in fall fashions.
Red, black, blue, brown, green and
almost every color you can think of'
are woven into beautiful materials
that are very, very good this fall and
practical, too.
To combine with these skirts
choose soft cashmeres or angora
sweaters in luscious fall shades. A
blue and green tweed skirt could
have a royal blue sweater with a
bright green scarf. Then you can
always get plain skirts with sweaters
that match perfectly and vary this
with bright scarfs.
Waistcoats Are Smart
Tailored shirts that aren't too bulky
are very convenient for that white
collar. Somehow collars and cuffs
succeed in giving one that trim and
neait look that is so desirable. Over
shirts and even sweaters you can
wear tweed or plain colored waist-
coats, little sleeveless jackets to you,
and there are some perfect suede
ones, too.
Knit suits, either knit by your own
hands or a machine, are always good
for campus wear. New styles with
tricky details of buttons, belts and
scarfs are bringing these knits into
more prominence than ever.
Tailored dresses can run the gamut
of color but do get one practical, one
that doesn't muss easily. About Fri-
day morning your wardrobe is slightly
messy with need for rejuvenation and
one good standby'to remedy this sad
situation is very acceptable.
Plaid, again, but this time it is in a
tailored shirtwaist frock with a pleat-
ed skirt, the pleats stitched half way
down and allowed to flare from there
on. A bright red and grey plaid is
practical for this dress and a red
kerchief can be tucked in the neck-
Wool Dress For Class
A dress ideal for classroom wear is
made of kasha wool in rust or gold.
It fastens down the front with a
double row of buttons, has a straight
skirt with two inverted pleats in
front and an inverted pleat down the
center back of the blouse.
Practically every woman on cam-
pus has a camel's hair coat of some
description and this year you can get
them in colors but a plain tan one is a
good bet for it matches practically
everything. Another flash for cam-
pus wear are reversible tweed coats
with gabardine for that inevitable

rain. One of these combinations has
a gabardine hat to match the rain
side of the coat.
Oh, yes, another thing! Ann Arbor
is a very, very cold spot when winter
comes around so be prepared. Be sure
your coat is warm and there are some
days when you will just have to dragC
out your fur coat to keep from freez-
ing. A good bet for both warmth
and beauty is a tweed coat with a silk
lining plus a heavy flannel lining that
zips in. This is guaranteed to keep
you from being chilled to the bone.
Snapbrims Still Good
Hats can be worn or not but if you
do indulge in this added attraction
there are two styles which are re-
ceiving most favor. One is the snap-
brim felt which can be found in col-
ors that match, contrast or what have
you. Uusually their only trimming is

What The Wise Young Freshman Will Don At Michigan

Teas Require l
Smart Dress,
Matching Hat!
Probably the most important of the
many. important events of a fresh-
man woman's debut into college life
is the period of rushing. Although l
the round of teas and dinners may
prove rather tiresome toward the end#
of the second week still it does make {
demands on your wardrobe. To
know the correct thing to wear and
when to wear it is a colossal prob-
lem to most prospective rushees.
Rushing starts Sept. 25 with the
usual round of teas. It is not neces-
sary to haul out your best silk, satin
or velvet for this affair but it is, not
wise either to wear the regulation
campus uniform, the skirt and sweat-
er. A dressy wool or a tailored silk
or velveteen would do very nicely.
Hats are mandatory for these affairs
and you wear them while consuming
your tea. This keeps your hair from
becoming too disheveled and also
saves your hat from the inevitable
squashing in an upstairs bedroom.

poised about her appearance ifdshe
were attired in a wine wool knit dress
with a royal blue velvet ascot and
the same type of buttons marching
down the front of the sweater. Eith-
er royal blue or wine accessories could
be combined with this outfit. Another
very new combination is a plaid wool
skirt in red and black with a black
velveteen jacket accented with crisp
white collars and cuffs. With this
dress a plaid hat to match the skirt
would provide that very necessary
extra touch. Of course, black shoes,
gloves and purse would be perfect.
Another dress of the age-old and
time-worn but still very smart black
is in a sheer wool. The dress itself is
very plain trimmed with black gros-
grain ribbon and it has a boxy jacket
with wide shoulders. A costume suit
is always a good choice One was black
with a luscious ivory satin top and
a short jacket trimmed with black
For the Sunday teas a prospective-
rushee can be a bit more dressed up
in a velvet or silk dress. Velvet,
that classic material, is used in many
styles but one that is forever attrac-
tive is a plain dress with lace collar
ant cuffs. Another costume is in the
new coronation blue and features the
draped effect and shirred sleeves.

a perky feather or a plain ribbon but
regardless of their plain style you'll
see them on lots and lots of heads,
varied mostly by the angle at which
they are worn. Calots, those little
round impudent hats which perch
way back on your head, are featured
in suede and felt and are naturally
devoid of trimming of any kind.
Then your feet ... one of the most
important accessories to a happy
college life is a comfortable pair of
shoes. This point just can't be
stressed too much becuse you walk
practically everywhere and the wear
and tear is terrific.
Brown and white saddle shoes are
rapidly becoming a necessity for a
complete college career and don't
clean them often. Regardless of how
disreputable they look everyone wears
them. You will probably have qualms
about wearing them with grey or
black but it's done and among the
Ghillies Among Fall Shoes
Ghillies, too, are coming into their
own and you always find lots of plain
oxfords. You can find them in all
colors and many styles but high heels
are definitely on the wane. One
might even go as far as to say that
they are out. We've really become a
very practical bunch.
Ankle socks are usually worn with
your saddle shoes and can be found
in soft angoras. There is some spec-
ulation going on about the wearing
of silk stockings under your socks
but, again, be conservative and don't
bare your legs.
You've probably heard this word
of warning a thousand times but a
raincoat is absolutely a necessity.
Rain in Ann Arbor is not a signal for
classes to stop and unless you are
very affluent you can't taxi every-
where so be prepared for the worst
and expect it to pour quite often.
One of these aforementioned re-
versible coats would be perfect but a
gabardine raincoat is very practical
There are lots of fancy styles in cello-
phane and your fall clothes aren't
wasted with this type because they
are plainly visible right through the
coat. Then some have matching um-
brellas, hats and even little things to
cover your books.
Of course, the accessories to go with
your wardrobe are numberless. Purses
should be large and the type that
stay shut as you'll probably be carry-
ing everything from a pen to your
favorite lipstick in it. Then you'll
need gloves and a scarf or two to wear
inside your coat.
Gold Jewelry To Be Worn
Over your sweaters you can still
wear pearls but old gold jewelry adds
that different touch. Hunt through
all your old jewel boxes at home and
see if you can't find an old locket and
wear it with a black velvet ribbon.
Old rings can be used to hold your
scarves together.
For general advice, be neat and
well groomed! Then, too, Michigan
used to be a "dress up" place and you
probably heard talk of that but now
that you are here look around and
then forget these rumors. Tailored,
sport clothes are almost the only
thing you'll see on campus and al-
though it is not necessary to conform
