Tis the season to deck out in holiday app
by June Wagoner
, Nebraskan Fashion Writer
Shinning like so many orna
ments, the holiday activities
brighten the December calendar
and light a girl's social life. And
with the additional opportunities
the Yule season offers, what bet
ter gift could a girl give herself
then some new seasonal wrap
pings? Crisp mornings of last minute
shopping and town lunching have
to go better when a new outfit
guarantees joyful spirits. Morning
angels would dew well in one of
the new open-work crochets pull
ed over clinging body stocking
or hung in swinging seperates.
Or, they might try bucking the
savage crowds of shoppers in
leather vestments straight out of
the old west. Case in point, the
brown suede wesket and mini pic
tured. Definitely not suitable for those
afraid of the fringe element, the
rough-out look is softened by an
undeniably feminine satin shirt
tied down with a glorious print
scarf. Both utilitarian and unique
ly today, leather knee boots fend
off chills and invite glances.
But not all Christmas activities
are outdoors, and afterall, there
is no place like home for the holi
days. No place like home for tree
trimming and eggnogging, holiday
baking and Christmas carding or
just plain mistletoeing. And spe
cial at home activities mean spe
cial at home dressing with the
emphasis on comfort and luxury.
Fireside wear is long or lean. Full
. length skirts in patchwork ma
terial with soft, full blown blouses
and slithery panne velvet eased
into jumpsuits and midi-length
shirt dresses are already favorites.
Another popular possibility is
the knit duo pictured. Mini-tunic
dress and flared pants combine
fashion's chic with at home com
fort. From fireside to friendly pub,
every holiday wardrobe should
contain at least one star. Maybe
a metallic glitter short and swingy
or a jeweled crepe full and cloud
soft. Or perhaps the medieval ro
mance of the Juliet costume pic
tured at the right. Fluid, moving
softly in muted shades, the young
innocence of the style belies a
Of all the certainties in the
Christmas season, the only sure
one is the caprices of the holiday
weather. And with most skirts
moving some distance above the
petella, Yule lasses should look
tto their coatings to insure good
Which of course, means maxi's.
Extremely sensible and highly
chic, a rare combination, maxi
coats require maxi accessories.
