Local Shops Display Variety
Of Latest Spring Fashions

By JAN SMITH
With spring less than a week away, many coeds are
making plans for revamping their wardrobes in keeping
with this season's newest styles.
Intent on just such a project were Diane Halbrook and
Jack Deppen, who took a trip to a local store. Dressed in
the ever-popular plaid, pleated skirt and casual jacket,
Diane looked the typical coed as they began their shop- "
ping expedition.
Once in the store, Diane decided to look over the
stock of new spring bonnets. After trying on a variety
of styles, she decided on a flat-crowned white straw. Also
on display were several designs in red and blue straw.
Going next to the dress department, Diane learned
that full skirts with yards and yards of petticoats. are "all
the rage" this season. After viewing several numbers, she

decided on a full-skirted blue and white sleeveless print
in paper taffeta with a thin belt and flowers at the waist-
line.
The next articles to be decided upon were the shoes.
With her new dress, Diane favored a pair of blue suede
sling-back sandals with a cut-out toe.
She also considered low-cut pumps, featuring a square
version of the dainty "King Louis" heel.
Leaving the selection of a new spring formal until last,
Diane needed Jack's approval before purchasing this all-
important item. She finally decided upon a pale blue
nylon print which gave the illusion of lace.
The gown featured a .large bow at the upper bodice and
a very full, permanently knife-pleated ballerina-length
skirt. An evening bag and gold-toned jewelry completed
the outfit.
