Leading the parade (from the top, left to right) are: one-and two-piece cowboy catchers, in denim: a straightline top and hip-high shorts combo; two-piece cotton-check charmer; bold-printed beauty hitting the cycle; (bottom, from left): knitted Helanca piped in white; cover-up shift for shifting sands; wild-flower printed maillot for untamed youth; striking striper; sold top and flower-appliqued shorts ensemble.
