SURE TO MAKE A GOOD showing are these three outfits for afternoon and evening. The young man's dark jacket may be worn cas-
ually as seen here, with an open-collared shirt. Or, with an added tie or sweater, the jacket may be used to fit any and all occasions.
The young ladies look crisp and cotton-cool, in their suits. The girl on the left shows bare arms, in an outfit that will travel well into
summer. The young woman on the right sports a bowl-brimmed hat, and trim tea-suit, ready for any Easter parade.

TRADITIONAL 'AT MICHIGAN is the cotton shirt-waist, this
model featuring a slight A-line skirt. The entire design is set
abloom with thousands of tiny flowers, to soften the dress into
something more than just a "classroom" outfit. The tone of this
shirt-waist has been picked up from simple, round-collared
blouses, which are scattered with the same homespun flowers.
Other shirt-waists, using the same narrow-waisted,, A-line cut,
appear insolid colors and mattress stripes.
Julie Chrisite ILoo0k
When Julie Christie appeared
as a sobbing and identity-crisised
Darling in her short; short slip, a
new era in female under garments
began. The tiny chemise slip was
not only the dramatic counterpart
of Marlon Brando's torn under-
shirt, but it was also a really
sensible design. With skirts on
the rise across every drawing-
board, the demand for slips that
reside securely out of sight had to
be met. And.Chiristie's charisma of
the new twentieth century woman
still clings to the design.
The starting point, of course,
was a minituresque copy of an
every-day. serviceable slip. But,
with a little time, the flowers be-
gan to bloom on the silk. Warners
has done much to forward the
look, and even gone one further
in a new design for a "hip-rider"
half slip. These garmentu, also,
feature a jungle array of color
and pattern. In most cases, the
slips are served up with matching
brassiers for a complete coordina-
tion of underwear.
The success of this fashion is
already undeniable. It has three
elements which virtually guaran-
tee style success: a practicality of
use, imaginative design, and grand
association with the most exciting
young actress in years.
