The question today for all fashion minded women is not which end is up, but how far up, or down? Looking to designers for an answer only seems to heighten the dilemma and women are finding their only solution in the new adage "Do your own thing." During post war days when hem lines took a drastic drop, women who could not afford new wardrobes would improvise by sewing on extra material to bring their hem lines down and meet the pressures of changing fashions. Today women don't need to feel such pressures. Dressing today is less a game of follow the leader, then just another way of expressing oneself and with the fashions available today, we couldn't have a better time for it. For the time being women can ignore the dropping hem line with a clear conscience, and not feel out of place walking the streets in skirts and dresses of almost any length. Ob' .ously, now is the time to be inventive, creative and experimental while wearing what you feel looks best on you. If you choose to go midi, don't forget that you are trying to achieve a total look. First you will choose your midi outfit from selections being cut in coats, pants, suits, dresses, skirts and lounging outfits. Materials range from cotton to denim, to crushed leather, with colors from innocent pastels to bold prints in reds, blues, oranges, crimsons and greens. Something for the shy, freedom to kick your best foot forward as you swing into spring. Midi dresses and pants outfits can be dressed up or down according to the accessories you choose to achieve your "total look" and - ashion lair - And don't forget with your platformed sandals everything shows, so start pedicuring your feet now so you can feel proud of showing off your toes romantically painted in wistful spring shades that can be obtained from nearly any cosmetic line. - If you're happy with your hem length, don't move it.
