COTTONS FOR COEDS:
jSkirt 'n Blc
By MIRIOM SHLIMOVITZ
Separates will continue to reign
this spring, turning the typical
coed's "skirt 'n sweater" ensemble
into a cotton "skirt 'n blouse" out-

can be bought separately but have
been carefully color-matched kto

problem work are the new gypsy
skirts observed in a local store.
They are gaily-printed full skirts
made with two rows of gathering,
:guaranteed to eliminate ironing.
A greater variety of colors is
now available in sailcloth play-
clothes. Once considered strict-
ly a working costume, the new
sailcloth separates have been
Even chickens and turkeys are
wearing overcoats these days, spe-
cial plastic overcoats which are
used for roasting fowl. The birds
r are cleaned, stuffed, wrapped in

'skin-tight, and frozen, all ready
for popping into the oven. When
cooking, no basting is necessary.
The overcoat should be removed
an hour before the bird is done
in order to brown the skin.

dressed up with such novel
twists as the Eisenhower-jacket
style and huge mother-of-pearl
buttons scattered about gener-
oursly. The sailcloth is available
in bright hues of green, blue,
brown, orange, and yellow.
Denim, too, has been dressed
up, almost beyond recognition. A
full white denim evening skirt,
decorated, with three huge wild
fishes, reminiscent of the popular
felt skirts, and scoop-necked pas-
tel denim evening blouses can be
purchased on campus.* '
SPRING versions of the colle-
giate shirt blouses are being shown
in short sleeves with the man-
tailoring. They are made in all
sorts of striped, polka-dotted and
"wierd-looking" printed materials.
Tight-legged toreador pants and
pedal-pushers are more "fierce"
than ever in bold striped or wild-
animal printed cotton. Shorts, too,
are gradually following suit along
the bolder lines.
Typical of the new shorts are
those with dark backgrounds
and brightly colored animal
prints. The shorts will continue
to be "very short" this year.
Contrasting the "fierce" look
are the fluffy "little-girl" nylon
blouses. Many cotton blouses, in
white and pastels, arecalso gener-
ously supplied with lace and ruf-

Shorter Sleeve Length, New Clever Cut
Highlight Changes in Spring Coat Styles
By MARGARET STUTSMAN
The loose coat has made a num-
ber one place on the hit parade
again this spring but is styled with
freshness, taking shape through
a clever cut that results in a fash-
ionable compromise between the
extreme fullness of the past and
the more recent "string bean" line.
Biggest fashion news of all is
the shorter sleeve smartly cut at
the elbow or a little below.
One of the most exciting coat
categories for spring is a family of
shorties. These chic, practical
numbers come in a variety of
lengthg including the seven-
eighths coat, the three-quarters
coat and several cropped versions
like the Spencer jacket with em-
pire lines that stop short at the
waist. Semi-fitted, domed or flar-
ed, they are "news" in luxury fab-
The glamour coat with attach-
able jewel or mink collars makes a
dressy coat and a daytime cardi-
gan coat-all in one.
Pretty colors, fabrics and detail-
ing are as much a part of the new
softness and femininity as are the
silhouettes of these spring coats.
The dropped shoulder line helps
to put the accent at the top
through seaming, yokes and arched
cuts. Seaming is deftly handled to
accent the rounded look and often
defines the important empire line.
The fabrics are soft and pliable.
Blends are used in great profusion
and have never been so stylish.
Silks combined with worsteds, al-
pacas, tweeds, cashmere mixes and
wools softened by fur fibers are all
among the textures that are now
Rich colors flash across the fash-
ion picture, too. Navy and beiges
are popular as well as shades rang-
ing from pink to red such as
cameo, sparkling geranium.
