Not all young college girls are content with thee gold standard college look of bobby socks, skirts and loose sweaters.Many, influenced by older sisters, friends or simply an urge to grow up quickly, aspire to more mature clothes, thereby facing a double wardrobe problem; where to find outfits that look mature but at a price they can afford. Such a young woman is Madeline Balcar of New York. Recently she let Life magazine choose a college style wardrobe, which suits her maturer tastes in clothing.
