She looks a little more vulnerable than she did last year. Her short, slick hairdo has been replaced with a softer, wispier look. Her necktie and her oxfords are back in his side of the closet. Her mannish jackets are softening at the edges. And she's now ready to swivel her hips in sarongs, tighten her torso in skintight minis and bare her midriff--and more--in some of the skimpiest get-ups ever to leave the beach. We call her The New Feminist--the woman of '85, replacing the androgyny of '84. Although she's a bit less strident in style as well as manner, she has lost none of her independence. For one thing, she won't give up the elements of his wardrobe that work for her. She takes the shirt off his back, for example, and makes it her own in such fabrics as see-through organza or wallpaper-print cotton. And she adds her own dash to haberdashery by wearing her man-tailored jackets with lace-lavished camisoles.
