Accessories To Accent
Straight Chemise Line
Although the fashion world has
seen the demise of the chemise, the
majority of this spring's acces-
sories still retain the easy-going
look of that outmoded style.
That light-heartedness indica-
tive of spring is embodied not only
in the shape (or lack thereof!) of
the season's accessories but also
in their gay floral prints and fluid
A vestige of the chemise age
decked out in new colors is the
beaded necklace of two or three
strands. The opaque-colored ropes
are featured in combinations of
blue -lilac, pink - cranberry and
shades of apricot and green, with
the colors highlighting matching
bracelets, earrings and pins. Hit-
ting closer to home, fresh-water
pearl bibs offer a relaxed touch
without lasoo proportions.
Prominent, to be sure, will be

Flowers abound in this spring's
fashion news, and floral prints of
all dimensions and species will
reach even this season's belts.
Settled around the waist line, they
take the form of wide cumber-
bands or narrow reversible belts
with buckleless velco fasteners.
With the waistline only moder-
ately displaced, more attention is
being paid to the neckline, with
jewelry, collars and scarves. The
regulation white Peter Pan collar
has blossomed into pique, em-
broidered or georgette or lace crea-

Gay print scarves, filling' in a
deep neckline or gently draping

the more imaginative.

to coordinate the various- acces-
sories; but these "added attrac-
tions" should trap that light-
hearted spring feeling.
Shedding shoe-boots and long
underwear, the modern miss should
welcome the change in footwear
that comes with spring.
Conspicuously absent from the
new spring styles are severely
pointed toes, but very much pres-
ent are T-strap pumps with intri-
cate split and braidea designs. For
with hemlines hovering somewhere
below the knees, this season's shoes
have come up to meet the chal-
lenge. No Points!
With more fabric in the actual
shoe, less emphasis is being placed
on severely high or thin heels. The
majority of the season's pump and
mule styles are backed up with mid,.
bobbin, or spool heels, better
suited for increased warm weather
Spring always signals the re-
turn of black patent leather, and
this year is no exception. How-
ever, many shoes made with the
shiny material will walk into a
-girl's wardrobe in bright spring
colors-green, geranium, bronze.
Deldi suede, a well-wearing re-
versed calf that is now on the
market, is being featured in many
designers' lines of shoes and
matching handbags in subtle, pas-
tel and intense tones.
One of the new intense colors,
indigo blue, will complement many
outf its, while multicolored but
soft tapesty patterns will offset
subtle basic costumes.
On the ground level, spring her-
alds the time of year when toes
and heels peek out from scanty
sandals. Whether they orginate
in an Italian haystack, chain gang
or ranch, many of this season's
straws, metal embellished and lea-
ther versions will feature com-
fortable insteps and colorful frills.
For the more conservative
schoolgirl, store windows will dis-
play T-strap or "skimmer" flats
and "jazz" oxfords in soft, pliable
leather or breathing punched peg.
Whether for school or dress af-
fairs, this season's line of foot-
wear is enough to tempt even the
most ardent barefoot nature lover.j
LONG SQUARE LOOK:
Women Favor Bulky Sweaters
The long, square look in sweat-
ers is the obsession of the girls
this year again, hiding what nor-
mally is displayed, and disfigur-
ing that which is displayed.
As was the trend in last year's
fashions, the heavy bulky knits
have remained in the fore, but
with their extra length and added
width, girls' figures have taken on
a grotesquely distorted appearance.
The newest feature that has
been added is the huge boat neck,
giving the sweater the appearance
of falling off the girls' shoulders,
like a midriff blouse. Most popular
in this line is the boxy boat-neck,
bulky which reaches down to the
There is no tapering at the hips;
the sweater just hangs until it can
hang no further. At the bottom are
two pockets which emphasize the
length of the garment.
Cable knits which were im-
mensely popular in recent years
are rarely seen on store shelves or
in display windows any more. In
their place are the brushed, shag-
gy wools, looped mohairs, and the
imported alpacas which are heavy

Moving out of the line of the
'heavy's' and into the realm of
the more 'feminine' styles, the
lambswool and fur-blends are still;
holding their own, and even seem
to be more popular than ever be-,
fore. Novelties, with collars and
fancy designs, have been the best-
selling styles of these fabrics.
Also, the three-quarter length
sleeve which had such great suc-
cess last year has continued to

The Perry Como 'shetland car-
digan', which made such a fan-
tastic debut last season, has curbed
its flood this year. Though it is
still quite popular, the sleeveless

worn over a blouse, has received'
more of an applause. It too is long,
and cardigan, and usually has
three buttons on the bottom. 1
The colors which the designers
chose for this year's sweaters were
more off-shade of true tones than
true tones themselves.

LOOSE AND BULKY-Among the most popular fashions this
year is the long, loose and very casual bulky knit sweater with
straight lines and a wide boat neck. These fulfill the essential
need for coed's clothes - that of comfort. The ribbed pattern
lengthens the sweater's line.
Rusts and gblds were an off-
shoot of the orange and yellow
families, and royal blue seemed
especially popular as a derivative
of the blue family. Whites, blacks

and synthetic fabrics are still be-

Soap, Creams Keep Face
Glowing for Spring Look
~sea shore brill iant
There's nothing like a touch of
powder on the nose and a blush
of rouge on the cheeks to give a
girl that "breath of spring" look.
The trick, of course, is finding
just the right balance between na-
ture and nurture to bring fresh,
young beauty to the fore,, instead
of hiding Mother Nature's gifts
beneath a cake of patented mud.
As in everything, the secret of
a well-done make-up job depends'
on the right beginning-a com-
pletely clean face. To this, tiny
dots of liquid make-up are lightly'
added to the forehead, nose,
cheecks and chin, spread on care-
fully avoiding the jawline and
Next comes the all-important
