Dress Favorite
It's knit dresses 2 to 1!
After polling various fraterni-
ties and men's dorms, it has been
discovered that the majority of
Michigan men prefer knit dresses
for dressy parties.
Tailored suits and plainly trim-
med satins were also rated high.
According to the men, slinky black
draped ensembles "just don't have
it" compared to knit dresses.
Along with these outfits the
plain opera pump seems to place
first among the footgear.
For those casual dates such as
the movies and plays, sweaters
and skirts and low-heeled shoes
are preferred. Naturally Arb dates
were menstioned, and jeans and
wool skirts seem to fill the bill.
