AB SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1997 FASHION THE SALINA JOURNAL T WOMEN'S WEAR Scripps Howard News Service Black and white combines in a variety of patterns this season. A model in Denver wears a Mark Eisen jacket with Paloma black open-toe shoes, all from Saks Fifth Avenue. Black and white: Crisp look in spring By SUZANNE S. BROWN Scripps Howard News Service DENVER — The adage about opposites attracting couldn't be more true this spring, when combinations of black arid white are appearing in everything from tote bags to trousers. Black is a wardrobe staple, but too much of it tends to look overly somber, says Maryann Rush Hertig, manager of a Denver store. And, she adds, "pure white is tough to wear. But the combination with black is fresh, crisp and uplifting." For all the focus on bright color this season — and the appearance on store racks of chartreuse, orange and yellow suits — women who want clothes with staying power are going to seek more subtlety. "We're seeing the black-and- white category continue, and the concept of neutrals in general is strong," says LaVelle Olexa, vice president for fashion at Lord & Taylor in New York. Olexa agrees with Hertig that white perks up black and gives it a "streamlined, modern appeal." In addition to showing up in solids, black and white is a good combination for such patterns as gingham checks, polka dots, oversized florals and stripes, says Roz Factor, vice president and fashion director at Foley's, in Houston. She suggests wearing silver jewelry and accessories with black and white, and likes the look of a white handbag with silver hardware. Then again, because it's so basic, black and white also can take a dash of color — a red belt, a yellow tank top and a lime-green neck scarf are just a few of the many items that will blend with the basics. T SEW SIMPLE T FINGER NAILS Nail polish is a cheap way to appear trendy This season, colors have lightened up to tangerine, mint sorbet By LoANA M. GONZALES Cox News Service WACO, Texas — Whether or not you like the blue and green nail polishes that have crept onto the hands of many women lately, no one can dispute the fact that for some, funky nail polish shades are just a fun but cheap way to be trendy. Joy Johnson, manager at Express, said she anticipates the return of "pretty" nail colors, but for now, wild colors give people a fashionable outlet for expression. "People see these models' nails. They can't look like that, but they can paint their nails blue or green or purple and they can feel like they can be part of the trend." Popular shades include deep burgundy or purple, bold blue and deep green. Names like Future Jade, Blue Metal and Purple Haze have gained lots of followers. For spring, the colors, and their names seem to be lightening up — Tangerine, Mint Sorbet and Chick (yellow). But the colors are still just as bold. Lacresha Free, manager at Claire's, said out-of-the-ordinary nail polishes give people a means to express individuality without An informal nail polish poll resulted in votes for the following shades of polishes: • Laser — a deep, burgundy wine shade. • Emerald Glow. • Moonlit Wine. • Sparkling Crimson. • Morticia — a blood-red shade. • Purple Heart. • Silver Orbit. • Copperglaze Platinum. • Blue Metal. • Twinkle Twinkle — a glitter shade. paying lots of money. "I think they're so popular now because it really states an independence," Pree said. "You can be just as wild as you want to be." The fact that nail polishes are inexpensive — from dollar store prices to $12 for brand names like Urban Decay — and not permanent also adds to their appeal. In fact, changing your nail polish is easy with products like the Cutex dipping jar of polish remover. And there are removers available that do everything from strengthen nails to moisturize fingertips.
