Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THfc LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, con tern pra fashion for '74 CASUAL sophistication, warm color tones and the sweater-look dominated Fashion's Door to '74, the llth annual fashion show staged by Beta Sigma Phi. Lean, elegant and easy-looking styles were featured for the woman in today's world, whether at work, in the home, or out for an evening on the town. Much emphasis is placed this season on versatility of day dresses and feminine lines. A-line skirts skimmed from belted waists, or were gently pleated and free- swinging, adding classic touches to everyday wear. The pantsuit, still in the forefront fashion, showed strongly teamed with brightly-colored sweater tops and shirt-tailored jackets. Uncuffed, straight-cut pant legs stole the limelight from the baggies of summer and threatened to dethrone poplar cuffed versions. Evening wear brought back to life the best of the glamorous 50s and the clinging, free 20s. Glittering lame predominated, followed closely by soft knits, rustling taffeta and elegant chiffon for those special nights. Fur made a big splash this year, trimming every con- ceivable coat and jacket, and the occasional pantsuit as well. Strips of suede accented by fur drew attention and combinations of color and style provided a refreshing in- sight into winter fashion. The emphasis was on co-ordinates and suits, as well as outer-wear, for the up-to-date man. Tones of brown, rust and navy are for the man on the go this season. Bold checks matched with smart vests and solid color pants were accented, and teamed with popular leather and suede classics. Patch pockets, white shirts, dog-eared collars and bow ties set the scene for the business man who wants to be dressed just right at every meeting or the after five oc- casion. There was a return to pinstrips, muted shades of gray and blue but always the casual look. Fashion's Door to '74 was presented Tuesday and Wednesday, with Fran Rude as convener and Reno Lizzi and Maxine Higgins as commentators. photos by bill grocncn ;
