Teens Give Sneakers The Co-By t — Tuesday, March 3, IJM REDLANDS DAILY FACTS Casual Styles In casual footwear — the kind of a girl likes to wear wlien she's not dating or shopping — brushed leather flats are tops. Brushed split leather flats are gaining in popularity — for good reason. Slade of leather that has been "split" or thinned down, the brushed leather shoe is liglil- er and more pliable than most. The brushed leather pi.\ic boot, in different colors, is another example of a good off- campus shoe. The sucded leather surface teams naturally wilh tweed and textured pants. A good-looking and easy-wearing shoe is the glove leather moccasin or flat. Set on its comfortable and flexible leather sole, the lithe leather shoe feels as soft — and moves as freely — on the foot as a leather glove does on the hand. Neater Wash Keep shirt sleeves from tangling with other wash by buttoning them to buttons on front of shirt. toes. And those foes are handsome — and "in" — whether round, tapered or square. Tlie footprints in the sands of fashion arc changing — teenagers arc walking around in light, airy leather flats in school and out. The girls have given the floppy sneaker the go-by for good, except for sports. What's done it, says Shoe Fashion Service of Leather Industries of America, is a new look of quiet good taste that pervades the campus these days. From the neat Peter Pan collar peeking from under a knit sweater to the leather shoe walking on Cloud Nine, the teenager is seen in subtle colors and simple styles. Fads still mean fun afoot, but they're not the be-all and end-all of fashion. On tlie ground, the style note is sounded by understated colored leathers — smooth, brushed, grained, waxed and patent leathers — in pumps and flats wilh pared down sides. Youthful dress shoes, the kind that will sparkle in the Easter Parade, will show up in jelly bean colors. In every leather and in most colors, it will be bright, but not too sunny. For dress occasions, the flat and the low heel share honors, but for parties and dances it's the mid- heel that's popular. Fads Afoot .\mong the fads are off-side straps — in pumps and flats. QuiJtcd and woven leathers are seen in cool colors, and patent leathers in vivid greens and reds or paled pinks, blues and grays. In genuine patent Icalli- er, black and while will continue to score top grades. Other fads — the kind that give you an airy look without costing you handsome shoe leather — are large perforations, the use of under and overlays to provide color, and leather texture contrasts. In both dress pumps and casual flats, portholes on vamp and sides are part of the teen's "open look". Open toes are out — banished to squaresville. Flats with wide open spaces at the side or back arc always teamed with closed Materials That Combine Texture Catching Hold For the bright look of spring, delicate colored leathers will team with silks, with cottons and wilh sheerest wools. A raw silk sheath takes on added dimension with a silk - bound matching suede jacket. For smart city wear, the costume type look is carried out in a Chanel - tj'pe cabretta leather jacket and matching gently flared skirt. The darling of the fashion- conscious woman, the leather .shift, shifts into spring but in more body - clinging lines. Sleeveless with easy relaxed lines, the shift in lovely rose beiges and pale blues will be more popular than ever. Handsome for town wear is the short coat in lush suede or s':pplc smooth leather in minty green or licorice black. Simply styled, the season's coats accentuate the rich texture of t h c leather. For afterdark wear, elegant wrap coats of smooth cabretta are embroidered c» SUITED TO A T-STRAP-Here's a pretty look in a leather sling-bock show that's set on a shaped mid-heel for wear everywhere. studded with fake jewels. Lightly flared smooth leather skirts double for day and evening wear. Daytime sees them in the popular middy or over- blouse in doe soft leather, nighttime with a beaded chiffon top. For more after-dark glamour, a reed slim A - line gown in leather is the ultimate in fashion for an evening at home or on the town. It's a favorite in taupe smooth leather or sand- beige suede leather. Suits Affected By Soft Touch Of New Spring Suits take off in two main directions for spring and both end up at a destination called "feminine." One road follows the soft, gentle approach with subtle shaping of barely fitted jackets above swinging skirts of flares or pleats. The other road is easy with styles that relax by, for example, eliminating jacket buttons altogether and simply showing off a softly cowl-collared blou- son in a crepe or sheer. Here the skirt may be pencil slim and perhaps in crisp pencil stripes. Either way, the total effect is the soft touch. Linen suits really play up color and this fabric gets a big play in many suit h'nes, too. Spring is always a wonderful suit season and it certainly promises to be no ecxeption this time around.
