To Enhance New Skirt Desigr

The big swing this fall has been
to bright, clear flashy colors
ranging from emerald green to
varying shades of majenta and
electric blue.
To accentuate these new fash-
ion colors, many of the cosmetic
companies have produced whole
new lines of lipstick and eyeshad-
For blonde-haired, blue or
green-eyed women,' thiere is not
much difference in lipstick shades,
and as last. year, a pure, vibrant-'
red is best.
Touch of Grey
The blonde should wear blue and
green shades of eyeshadow, but
with a touch of charcoal grey to
make' the eyes appear larger,
deeper and prettier. .
She can wear almost all the
new fashion shades, but of these
*new hues she will look best in
bright green or electric blue. The
new purple dill1 also "-look good
with blonde coloring, but a young
lady must be wary of makeup-
color clashes.
The blonde woman should try
to voi excessively bright colors
SComplimentary Tones
For dressy affairs, charcoal
tones can be used to subdue eye-
makeup, and compliment attir'e.
Almost any color is suitable for
casual or fancy dresses, but reds
are best not included in ward-
robes. This leaves a choice of any
one of the new browns, greens,
electric blue and,- if one has the
right complexion, bright yellow.
Lipsticks. for the brunette with
blue or green eyes have a much
wider range than they do for
blondes-from clear red to shock-
ing pink. Her eyeshadow, howeve,
should be confined to blue or
green, with perhaps a touch of
Correct Shades
Care should be taken to wear
the right shade of. lipstick with
the correct color dress. Purple,
green and blue dresses or match-
ing outfits are good for evening-
wear, as are the russet shades
for the miore monotome-look in

ed by using white eyeshadow to
bring out their eyes. Hloweve'r,

the purpose of wearing plain
To avoid this stereotype, an ex-
ceptionally bright lipstick should
be used, preferably bright red, but
shocking pink has also been
known to have a stunning effect.
For her wardrobe, green or blue
is best. It is wise to avoid yellow
because this tends to make dark
complexions appear yellow.
.Redhead's Croice
The' redheads, it seems, must
have .had this year's choice of col-
ors decided upon specifically for
terown use.
For blue or green eyes, green
eyeshadow is best, although blue
can be used depending upon what
color is worn. The lipstick should
be red, but it can have just a
tinge of blue or purple in it to
accentuate the new colors.

cept majenta can be, worn.

the very best effect.
For the red-head with brown
eyes, any shade of rust will look
quite good, as will most of the
blues, purples, and greens.
Avoid Maj$enta
She should avoid majenta, and,
as the redhead with blue or grgen
eyes, wear yellow only when it
will be compatible with skin color.
Lipsticks range from rust-colored
to those with brown overtones.
Brown eyeshadow is best for
In short, majenta is better for
dark-haired women while the rust
colors and bright greens, blues,
and purples may be worn by al-
most anyone with almost a guar-
antee of success.
One of the innovations this year
is colored lipsticks, coming in
various shades of blue, green, and
other such charming variations
designed to make more appealing

graduate woman. No one asked the

this summer have given way to
smaller, navy type, rainhats which

Tyrolian style hats now come

of such fur style hats, many arti-

these hats will warm up the cold

A wide range of skirts will be
seen on campus this year, includ-
ing new fall colors, fabrics and

RELAXED MOOD-The casualness of women's sportswear this
season is accentuated by a neat harmony of skirt or slacks, blouse
and sweater. It costs no more to match each color in mpilady's
outfit, and 'U' eo-eds have acquired this habit with a refreshing


Women are no longer wearing
the conservative dark blue suit and
frilly white blouse.
This year, the trend in sports-
wear is bright, bright colors and
wild plaids and stripes.
The "look" is neat sloppiness

which dip below the knees, low

These smocks and dusters come
in every color in the rainbow,
with most of them usually repre-
sented in one pattern of large,
medium and small stripes run-
ning all over.
Predominating colors, however,
include blues, greens and magenta,
a shade of red-purple.
Colorful Knits
T-tops, sweaters and over-
blouses also exhibit the trend to
be brightly colored. Italian knit
sweatersheare more colorful than

scene and show all signs of be-
coming even more colorful.

Fringe, too, makes its appear-

lines and pockets.
A new adaptation of last year's
kilt, again, a blessing for col-
legians who must pass rigid din-
ner line rules, is the "kiltie."
This skirt just hits the middle
of the knee and is fastened by a
large pin. It is made of box pleats
and allows comfortable walking,
sitting and last-minute running
for classes.
Burlap Bermudas
