Styles Offer Variety
For Work, Play Wear
As summer hurriedly approaches, the thoughts of all coeds turn
to vacations, jobs or summer school and along with these thoughts,
visions of summer clothes.
Cottons immediately come into the picture, with local stores
featuring styles that are suitable for all sorts of occasions from
dressy parties to the most casual sport event.
FABRICS HAVE PLAYED a great part in the new versatility of
cottons. Although cottons are in a constant state of change, they
still retain their natural coolness. However, many surface changes are
visible. Textured prints, original prints from the pens of contem-
porary artists, glossy finishes and "iced" fabrics have added new
variety and life to the ever-popular cotton.
Coeds traveling home or applying for summer jobs will
appreciate cotton summer suits. Found in seersucker, linen and
corded fabric, suits can now be cool as well as good-looking.
Again the versitility of fabric, print, color and style offer any
coed the suit of her choice for that important trip or interview.
Sun dresses take the spotlight on the summer stage. A strapless
dress covered with a scarf can go right inside for dinner without
a change, while a halter dress adds variety to the sunning scene. For
evening a jacket, stole or scarf will cover up bare shoulders.
'SERVING AS A NEW TWIST in jewelry, the sharp, cold glitter
of glazed white enamel combined with the gleam of gilt will add
sparkle to pale cottons and bronzed skin. Gypsy ear-hoops, black-eyed
Susan pins, gilt and enamel chains and wide bracelets all lend them-
selves to this effect.
For those cool evenings, a "summerized sweater" is just the thing
to throw over a cotton dress. A "sweater" of this type may be a cotton
knit cardigan, middy, T-Shirt or a white cotton fleece blazer.
Attending summer school may not be so sad a fate with cool,
refreshing cottons. Ever-popular separates may be worn as a com-
bination or with different skirts and blouses. Sleeveless dresses will
make the life of the hard-studying coed considerably more comfort-
Looking on the pleasurable side of University life in the summer,
one can find a fall program of activities to provide recreation through-
out the summer months.
Taking an integral part in summer recreation will be women's
fashions. Clothes-conscious coeds can start planning their costumes
for the square-dancing classes, informal record dances, "Beach Ball",
sailing, biking and of course, swimming.

HEAVENLY HATS-Lost in indecision among a maze of hats of various styles, shapes, colors and
fabrics is Nancy Cohen, trying to decide if she really likes the small pearled pillbox hat that she is
wearing, if one of those blue ones would be nicer.

TAXI PLEASE-Looks like time to go home as Carol Kaufman and Linda Hunttingon have donned
a fitted navy suit and a slim skirt with a bolero jacket, collected their luggage and are waiting for
a taxi.

COTTONS COME TO CALL-There must be a Hatcher Open
House for Ellen Van de Vusse in her candy-striped cotton with a
full pleated skirt and Barbara Watson wearing a plaid sports
dress with a matching sweater faced with the same plaid are
paying a visit to President and Mrs. Hatcher.

FORMAL FASHIONS-It was a lucky man who awaited his date for IFC Ball as Polly Kurtz, Delfa-
Jeanne Le Duc and Pat Kreuser came down the Chi Omega stairway in their new formals.

Left-BIG SPLASH-Splashing
in the closest body of water they
could find, the League fountain,
Pat Wright, in her shorts de-
signed for comfortable sports
participation and a good sun
tan, and Sue Sacher, wearing
pedal pushers and jacket to
match, a good biking and tennis a
costume, relax after a fast after-
noon game of tennis on the
women's tennis courts.
CATION - In the appropriate
setting of the School of Archi-
tecture and Design pillars, Sue
Potter and Diane Halbrook mod-
el classic summer cottons, a coat
dress and a plaid sun dress.
