Shoe Experts Predict More Color,
Ornaments for Casual Footwear

By BARBARA MOLYNEAUX
Mosct popular of all the casual
campus shoes today is the suede
oxford with a crepe sole, seconded
by the saddle shoe with the loafer
retreating to a quiet third place.
Fashion experts are predicting
that in general there will be a lev-
einfg off of preference so that the
saddle and especiaaly the loafer
will show increasing popularity.
Traditional browns and grays
are going to take a back seat
this spring and summer with

bright reds and standard blues
predominating.
* * *
DESIGNERS are doing wonders
with ornamental buckles and
straps on the loafer in order to
bring that shoe to the forefront in
popularity as it was in '39 and '40.
The crepe sole will be stressed'
here in Ann Arbor for comfort's
sake although the leather sole
with a flat heel will still be good
for dancing.
Green and tan leathered loafers
will, in accordance with fashion

trends, be little seen while the ox
blood and bright reds take the
spotlight. Brown in the loafer is
always good, dark or light.
ONE OF THE particular favor-
ites among campus coeds will
probably be the new sandal type
loafer. It has a partial open face
which will be especially nice for
spring and summer, yet retains the
crepe sole for comfort and that
casual effect.
Loafers are the only type of
campus shoe that can be de-
signed in such a great variety
of ways and this variety will
appeal to campus women be-
cause it can add such smart-
ness to any costume.
The newest change in saddles
will be in the material. Instead of
the usual stiff leathers, stores are
showing soft, flexible buckskins
and again a crepe sole instead of
the hard rubber.
* * *
CONTRASTING COLORS will
be mostly blues and reds as in all
the other latest fashions along
One other specialty of the
saddle this sspring is the square
toe which also met with popu-
lar demand several years ago.
Suede shoes have an interesting
history as to their rising and fall-
ing demand. During the war years
they could not be made and peo-
ple simply got out of the habit of
buying them. When they return-
ed several years ago people paid
little attention to them and con-
sequently, they were a dead style.
* * *
THEY CAUGHT ON quite sudden-
ly when people recognized the ex-
treme comfort of the crepe sole
and the striking addition the var-
ious suede colors could make to
the wardrobe.
Red suede is rather showy in
appearance so dealers are doing
more with deeper shades of red
such as wine and they are also
stressing all shadestofyblue. Wo-
men who already own grays and
browns might enjoy the effect of
contrasting colored laces, especial-
ly navy with gray suede.
Aside from the oxford, sad-
dle and loafer some of the coeds
are becoming interested in the
novelty "Pixie" or "Jester" shoe.
This is a soft kid, calf or suede
shoe which is built up around
the ankle similar to an elf shoe.
Some of these are lined with
sheepskin and are therefore very
warm, while others are thin and
more appropriate to warmer wea-
ther. They are available at several
local stores in a great variety of
colors.

SEASON'S STYLE-Afternoon suit features detail in buttons and
pockets. Typically "this year" are the nipped-in waist, slim skirt
and turned back cuffs. Shown above in beige menswear, the man-
tailored suit adds details for femininity.
Mannish Lines, Feminine Accents
Combine in New Suit Designs

Hats Feature
NeutralTones
Bright Red, Blue
Trims Favorites
Very light neutrals, natural
straw and cream felts, emphasized
by bright greens, reds and blues
seem to have taken over the hat
popularity this winter.
Typical of this trend is the
youthful cloche fashioned of nat-
ural straw with a bright red or
green facing framing the face and
topped by a gaunty straw posey
perched at one side.
* * *
TO DRESS UP the straw it is
combined with velvet, ribbons and
artificial flowers. A popular style
is the off-the-face brim of ruffles
looped with satin ribbon, with
roses crushed under one side of
the brim.
High pointed hats ar in favor
this season. Some are twisted
to a shart point, while in others
the high crown is indented. A
great many are fashioned in
cuff-like folds, decorated with
bright beading or ribbons.
Following the wide-to-the-sides
look, the ever popular Dutch cp
is featured in several versions this
year. It is shown in felt, suede
and straw. The straw cap is often
modified by trimming it with a
tafetta brim.
* * *
FOR TRAVELING the easy-to-
pack soft cloches and berets take
the lead. Cloches in seudes and
velvets can be easily packed away
for a trip, yet they are ready to
wear when unpacked.
These soft materials fold eas-
ily and are wrinkle resistant.
The beret is even easier to pack
than the cloche, for it can be
laid flat in a flI suitcase.
Both of these'hats can be worn
with many different outfits. With
suits and daytime dresses, they are
usually worn with no ornaments,
but for more formal occasions they
can be dressed up with sparkling!
scatter pins of rhinestones and
other brightly colored gem stones.
Chinese influence is seen in the
broad-brimmed coolie hats which
were introduced this year. Bright
reds and warm yellows are the
most popular shades being used In
this style.

C --

An innovation in shoe styles is
the velvet pump, first introducedI
last fall.
Featuring a low vamp, velvet
shoes have an open look which is
accented by low cut sides. Two or
three inch heels and closed toes
complete the design.
After five o'clock, black is the
appropriate color for the velvet

pump. It is especially striking with
cocktail dresses and ballerinas.
Rhinestone clips, fastened to the
throat of the shoe show up to full
advantage against the dark back-
ground.
In ginger and green velvet, the
shoe, although still dressy, is suit-
able for afternoon and street
wear.

Velvet Used for Party Pumps

.,
A

"Fashion for casual suits is only
'abric deep," claim prominent New
York designers in referring to new
news in suit-wear.
Tweed heads the preference list,
with checked wools and worsted
menswear coming close behind.
Buttons, and lots of them, covered
with the same materials add to
this emphasis on materials.

IN ACCORDANCE with the
Decorations
EasilyMade
For those who enjoy making
their own home decorations for
Christmas, a little originality and
a few odds and ends are all that
are required.
A dainty little Christmas tree,
which can be used as a centerpiece
or mantle decoration, can be made
from a knitting needle, a piece of
cardboard, various sizes of Christ-
mas tree balls and paper doilies.
The long knitting needle, which
has a head on it is placed through
a hole in the cardboard so that it
will stand vertically.
A paper doily is then placed on
the bottom over the cardboard.
Then Christmas tree balls are
placed on the doily slipping the
wire piece which holds the hanger
over the knitting needle.
Another doily is placed upon
this circular layer of balls and
another layer of balls is placed
upon it, the balls gradually dimin-
ishing in size as the layers are
built up until very tiny balls make
up the last layer. On the very top
is placed a tree top ornament.

manish fabrics, designers combine
masculine lines with feminine ac-
cents and produce a variety of
styles, all new and different.
Paris fashion sets the pace
with a slim, quite short skirt
with a bolero-box jacket. A turn-
ed-up collar and folded-back
cuffs complete the picture of
this creation from abroad.
A new York designer features his
grey menswear suit, with a sailor
collar of the same material. Its
very short, middy length jacket
buttons to the bottom of the deep,
oblong neckline.
ALTHOUGH THE trend is still
towards slimness, some designers
prefer a slight flair in the skirt.
Exemplifying this style is a salt
and pepper tweed fashion in the
New York news.
The tight, straight front of
its skirt contrasts sharply with
a full flair in the back. Dark
shiny buttons run from hem to
waist and continue onto the
jacket, which is tight fitting ex-
cept for the full winged sleeves.

Box and knife pleats also
E relief to the stark straight
of the current style.

Gumdrop Trees
Become Reality
The. little gumdrop Christmas
tree has gained in popularity in
recent years as a cheerful home
decoration.
The tree is made by securing
the top branches of a bare tree and
painting them with silver paint.
Various colored gumdrops are
then placed through the ends of
the branches.
