The "New Look" in college fash-
ions is making headlines this fall,
and why shouldn't it? After treat-
ing the college woman for years as
a gadding clothes-horse, designers
have finally recognized her as an
s adult woman to whom clothes are
important but of secondary interest.
The entire attitude can be summed
up in one word, utility. Stylists have
watched and learned from the Amer-
ican college girl. They have noticed
that comfort is the primary requis-
ite in dress, and that durability runs
a close second. They have seen her
prefer the classic tailored dresses,
suits and coats, good wool sweaters,
and practical fiatering skirts for
more than a generation.
' Designers, this year, have con-
sidered all these facts, and have
decided that maybe the college girl
=s right after all in her choice of
attire. Consequently, the "New
Look" has emerged. Instead of
pushing a new style of dress, fash-
ion makers have merely revamped
the old, making it even more wear-
able and attractive.
Instead of size forty plus sweaters.
the know-how gal will wear smooth
neat sweaters. If she really wants
to be up to date, she'll tuck 'em in
and finish it all off with a wide
leather belt. Chances are that the
change will be most noticeable on
eastern campuses, since mid-west
fashion is reputedly a year or two
behind. But nevertheless, it will
The sweater blouse of wool jer-
sey which made its bow last year
is an even more potent force in the
present picture. This style sold it-
self because it was a change from
sweaters, and better as an under-
suit blouse. Shirtband collars and
rolled necklines mark the new edi-
tion, and gold and silver snake chain
chokers are the perfect finish.

proved a boon to dawn patrollers
struggling valiantly to make their
eight o'clock three days a week be-
cause donning them was so easy.
As a result, you can choose any
style wrap-around that suits your
figger, pleated, plain, or dirndl,
plaid, checked, or solid color.
Kleig light make-up, made pop-
ular by seductive pancake ads, is
out completely. Rely on your own
complexion to pull you through, and
keep lipstick and powder clear and
fresh if you want to look naturals
(which IS the way you want to look).
No college girl can help but con-
cede to the new look. It is the way
she has wanted to look since she
was first herded through orienta-
tion. She looks, and is, comfortable,
her clothes are practical and versa-
tile. And she wears them with the
air of a woman who knows she has
special responsibilities that she is
capable of meeting,
