Weddling Gowns

Bridal gowns today are designed
for later uses as evening wear.
Increasing in popularity is the
mantle train that can be slipped
off leaving a sleeveless dress which
makes fashionable evening attire.
The styling of the bridal dress,
whether it is to be one with a
mantle or just the traditional type,
tends to have an empire waist with
either the A-line skirt or the con-
trolled sheath with bell sleeves
and simple lines.,
The old full-skirted, richly em-
bellished dress with the 'natural
waist and short skirt is definitely
out. The garnish has been replaced
by less formal, simple lines.
Becoming more popular this
season is the "off-white or ivory
colored gown. Of course, the stan-
dard white is as popular as it al-
ways has 'been. Occasionally ice
blue and blush pink are being
The trains of the dresses vary
from the shortest, most popular
chapel length to the court length
and to the longest cathedral
length which is used for formal
weddings. The trains are being
designed to be detachable so the
bride can enjoy the reception with-
out being hindered by the train.
The fabric which is becoming
most popular this season is linen.
Also frequently used are peau de
soie, silk faced peau, silk, crepe,
and English net. In warmer wea-
ther organza and organdies are
Compatible with the new linen
is the Venice lace which is the
most popular. Also used frequently
' are re-embroidered Alencon and
Chantilly, lace.
To enhance the beauty and the
elegance of the dress, the acces-
sories are coordinated as closely
as possible. The headpieces are be-
ing made of the same material as
the dress and have fewer pearls
and jewels than used to be popular.
The most popular veil is bouf-
fant and elbow length. It is most
frequently used with the chapel
length train. Occasionally the ca-
thedral length veil which flows to
the floor, is used with the cathe-
dral length train.
Writslet gloves are always used
if gloves are worn. Kid gloves are
worn with silk and summer fab-
rics'are used with all other fabrics.
Traditional two inch heels Are
still worn.

The bridal bouquet is normally
white., The flowers are in either a
cascade or crescent arrangement.
The colonial shape is still popular.
The bridesmaid dresses are al-
most floor length with empire
waistlines and A-line skirts or
controlled sheaths. The designs
tend to be simple yet sophisti-
cated enough to be worn as an
evening gown later.
Something new in the styling
of the dresses this season is the
detachable panel which allows the
1dress to be worn later with a new
pearance. The sleeve comesnto
above the elbow and is either tube
or bell shaped.
This season the Granny gown
I has become very popular with
ruffles on the sleeves and the hem.
The old fashioned look with eye-
let embroidery and ruffled sleeves
and a kerchief with matching em-
broidery is also becoming popular.
Crepe is used more than other
fabrics this year. It is either used
on the whole dress or combined
with another as the skirt. Linen
are becoming more popular this
and accordion pleated chiffon are
becoming more popular this sea-
son. Textured silks are still good.
The dresses are being trimmed
by embroidered organza and em-
broidered ribbon. The plain velvet
ribbon with a bow still is poplar.
For the bridesmaid,' the most
popular headpieces are small bows,
pill boxes, and ringlets that match
the fabric of the dress. Live flow-
ers as a headpiece are also com-
ing back into style.
The flowers for the bridesmaids
are informal bouquets. Baskets
tumbling over with. spring flow-
ers are becoming popular.
Long gowns for the guests at
evening weddings are becoming
more popular. When the women
wear long gowns the men should
wear evening clothes. Before six
o'clock the attendants should wear
oxford grey and not tuxedoes
which. are inappropriate. The.
guests can wear dress suits.
For formal evening weddings,
white dinner jackets can be word
after Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The rest of the year black is worn.
Local prices for wedding dresses
range from $100 to $150. This is
the moderate, range, they can be
priced into the thousands. Brides-
maids dresses of the moderate
price range cost from $25 to $45.

In Bloom
The average age of the mass of
pierced ear owners in the United
States is anywhere from thirteen
to twenty five. Never before has
any single jewelry craze captured
the hearts and lobes of so many
at one time. As a result, pierced
earrings and being produced in
a truly dazzling variety of styles
and types.
There are two basic divisions
of pierced earrings: the so-called
"dangle" and the post variety. The
dangle earring includes any of a
number of earrings which hang
suspended from the ear on a fine
gold wire. The simple gypsy hoops
are of this style, and appear in a
vast hierarchy of size and weight.
For those who desire something a
bit more extravagant, the dangle.
design appears with a single or
mass of precious stones. Further
variations on this theme are the
heady drop earrings which hang
down several inches from the lobe,
and appear as anything from
wooden beads to golden filligree.
Several manufacturers have begun
marketing earrings which are
copies of antique jewelry. The gold
is synthetically "aged" to a rich
moldiness, and set with either
imitation or genuine precious
stones in an ancient design.
The post earring is inserted
through the'ear lobe on a heavy
gold or silver rod. The back is
fastened with a tiny metal "nut,'
which is curled like a ribbon bow.
Although some earrings are de-
signed to hang on a small chain
off the front end of the post, the
most common design fits flush
against the ear. Precious and semi-
precious stones and ornamental
gold balls are the most pppular
among college students. However,
the designs become more imagina-
tive, exhibiting fanciful carved
rosebuds, small fish, and metallic
Of the two types of pierced ear-
rings, the post is probably the

TO PUT SPRING INTO the step of any couple, here are two bright young sweaters. The masculine
V-neck is a campus tradition and is available in as many colors as the wearer will care to imagine.
Her cardigan is another year-round favorite, which may be worn with either a cotton or a wool
skirt. The ease of wearing, as well as the flattery of design, make these two forever popular.

THIS LOOSE, STRIPED T-shirt is borrowed from the designs for
football jerseys. It is easy-living enough to accommodate the
most active Tom-Boy. Yet, the final effect of such a shirt is to
contrast and flatter the feminine personality.

most enduring for day to day
wear. There is, too, the danger
that constant wearing of a heavy
dangle earring will stretch the
earring hole permanently. But no
matter which type of design is
selected, the pierced earring still
seems to be the most popular
jewelry trend since enagaement
rings. The probable reason for this
special excitement is the fact that
a pierced earring is less easily
lost. Thus, the fearer need not fear
the gradual collection of half pairs
of earrings. What is more, the
pierced earring becomes almost a
part of the wearer, allowing the
coed to carry some sign of fem-
inity even in her classroom attire
of shirt and levis.
It makes good fashion sense to
have your ears pierced only by an
expert. This means that even if a
friend possesses a perfectly mar-
velous ability at ear-piercing, it
would be far better to go to a doc-
tor. Friends worry too much. In
New York, the city which sports
the largest population of ears that
are pierced, the neighborhood
jeweler performs the task.

Today the thing to wear are gold
rimmed sun-glasses. The only
thing wrong with this is that they
are being mass-produced. In any
department store in the city one
can pick up, for one dollar, a pair
of gold framed glasses with green.
yellow or brown glass in them.
This is wonderful for any one who
is fourteen or younger but beyond
the age of fourteen any person
wearing this cheap imitation will
be laughed at and ridiculed.
If you are one of the five or
six people in the continental
United States who would look good
in this type of old-fashioned
glasses there is only one way to
get a hold of them.
In any city in the United States
there will be a few small grubby
