On What To Wear On Campus
Outfits For Rushing Dates,
Necessary Wardrobe All
By JEWEL WUERFEL
You may have a sister at Vassar or
Northwestern, but she cannot tell
you just what to put into the trunk
for your first year at Michigan. Each
campus has its own code of what
the well-dressed women wears.
Remember one thing. For the next
eight months you will be competing
with 3,500 other women for the dis-
tinction of standing out in a group
as smartly groomed, which means
painstaking care to arrive at the right
degree of individuality.
You may come expressly to be a
scholar or to nab a husband. Which-
ever it is, be sure to dress the part
of the student during class hours.
Of primary importance is to look
comfortably dressed: low heeled shoes
for the long walks from building to
building taken on the fly between
classes; roomy coats that are easily
slipped on and off every hour; gaily
colored knits and wool dresses to
brighten up the drab winter days;
sweaters and skirts which can be
worn in different combinations; hats
which are easy on the head for a four-
To be more specific, here are a few
models which are ideal for putting on
at 8 a.m. and wearing right through
dinner. First and foremost are knits.
New fall yarns are especially intregu-
ing with their variety of colors and
tweed mixtures. One style is of a
tweed mixture with red and white
flects on a navy background. The
dress is two-piece, the jacket fasten-
ing down the front with red leather
frogs and a matching belt.
Hats will prove an important item
in your winter wardrobe. Day after
day you will wear the same warm
coat from morning to night. A change
of gaily colored and perk hats will
brighten up the morning when you
start dressing at the dreary cold
dawn for an eight o'clock for which
you arenot prepared.
Fur Coat Needed
For early fall you will need a light
weight coat for those days when
the weather man can't seem to decide
whether to make it hot or cold. The
local favorite is a raglan sleeved, loose
hanging coat with a slit half way
up the center back. In plaid, check,
plain brown, tan, blue, rust, wine,
what you choose, nothing can be more
Before the football season is over,
your warmest coat will be of service.
If you must limit yourself to one
winter coat, choose that with tailored,
sporting lines rather than a dress
coat. It is much better to wear a
coat that is just a little too tailored
on Friday and Saturday nights tha
to be too elaborately dressed fro
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. six days in t
One middle course coat being di
played in the early fall showings
cut on a swagger line with a hu
fur collar of dyed wolf, which is o
of the new fall furs. It is bleachE
to almost white in places and shad
into tan and darker brown on ti
edges. The coat is made of a to
material resembling that of Huds
New Fur Coat Styles
Fur coats are more attractive this
year than ever before. They are be-
ing made in more becoming, flatter
furs, and the new cuts and lines are
excellent. Swagger cuts, in knee
lengths and ballet skirt style with
narrow waist and full, flaring skirts
are the two models predominating
the fall showings.
Another type of coat which is abso-
lutely indispensible is a raincoat. In
the fall and spring it pours for weeks
on end. The most practical protec-
tor is an oiled sjlk wrap. It is light
weight, can be folded up into a little
package and carried in your notebook,
comes in coat or cape styles with
hoods or without, is made in brilliant
colors and is absolutely waterproof.
Umbrellas are made in matching col-
For Friday and Saturday night
dates there is a variety of lines to
follow. For the last two years, women
on campus have gradually grown
away from the custom of wearing
floor length gowns to Union and
League dances. Replacing these are
street length silks and sheer wools.
. Formals For Every Type
No type of apparel has as many
possibilities and variations in styles
and materials as formals, and none
are as flattering to a woman. There
is one thing to remember, a formal
cannot change your personality. It
can bring out hidden features but
it cannot create a miracle and make
a sweet young girl into a tall sophis-
ticate. Study your type and dress
The most immediate problem in
dress is what to. wear for rushing
dates. Everyone agrees that clothes
really shouldn't matter and it is true
that a sorority will not rule you out
because yoilr outfit isn't quite up to
the minute, but the fact remains that
if you feel dressed to the occasion,
your poise and self assurance will be
much greater and you are capable of
making a much better appearance.
For the first two teas on Saturday
and Sunday, any of a number of types
are appropriate. Saturday afternoon,
a wool dress, a'knit dressy suit or a
tailored silk would be very accept-
able. On Sunday select slightly more
dressy models of the same type.
