Football fans often accumulate as much bulk as their heroes on the field, but this season's girl-in-the-stands will confront the icy winds in slimming leathers designed for warmth and cut for style. Calfskin and suede are now fleece-lined or quilted. Leather pants with silk linings resemble leggings and can replace bulky knee-high boots. Mated with sheepskin skirts are matching sheepskin jackets. Opposite: Clare Chisolm wears fawn-colored sueded-sheepskin blazer and skirt, and Viveca Insulander a striking giraffe-printed sheepskin outfit. The girls are watching a workout by the Boston Patriots.

New York Giants Joe Morrison and Aaron Thomas escort Tammy Ilasat and Susy Davenport after a home game. Tammy wears a quilted leather jacket and skirt over leather pants. Susy's jacket, flared in back, is teamed with legginglike trousers.

Putting their reds together, Viveca and Jon Morris, Boston Patriot center, go into a postgame huddle. Viveca keeps warm in a sable beret and red suede pants suit.

Tammy Ilasat's fleece-lined buckskin coat and suede skirt win approval of Giants Earl Morrall (standing) and Spider Lockhart at Kenny's, rendezvous of the New York team.
