Women View New Trend in Bathing Suit Fas

hions

By MAME JACKSON
Whether a girl spends her sum-
mer at a plush resort on the coast
or merely takes occasional trips
to a nearby inland lake, variety
and originality are the key words!
for her round-the-water-wear.
A wide selection of swimsuits, in
various colors and styles, are feat-
ured in the new beach wear styles
for this year. By careful selection,
a girl can relay any mood she
wishes to create through her
choice of swim wear.
New bathing suit styles range
from the controversial bikini to
the more conventional one-piece
suit. However, this year there- is
a definite trend back to the two-
piece variety.
Knits Plentiful
Knit suits, both in solid colors
and vivid prints, are plentiful this
year. There are also many styles
and colors in cottons, ginghams
and synthetic fibers. The new
rounded neck - line is featured
among these new styles.
For the most part, the new
bathing suits emphasize bright
colors and gay prints. Polka dots,
flowered designs, Hawaiian and
Oriental prints are prevailant.
Poodle Cloth
A novelty bathing suit number
is the new, exotic "poodle cloth"
suit which comes in either black
or white. Poodle cloth, a heavy
cotton knit, gives a sophisticated,
clinging effect and will be popular
for summer wear.
Many of the new-style swim-
suits are complemented by match-
ing beach jackets of varying
styles. These matching suit and
Jacket sets will be especially pop-
ular' for beach wear in the less
torrid'weather.
Beach Jackets Available
Beach jackets are available in
a number of styles and lengths
which range from knee length to
waist level and from fitted to
strictly box type styles. Cotton
and terry cloth jackets in boat
neck pullover and traditional car-
digan styles are particularly pop-
ular.
Modifications have been added
to the traditional belted terry
cloth Jacket. Fringed hems, man-
darine collars, handkerchief pock-
ets and brightly colored trim are
among some of the innovations
which have been added. Bold
block prints in terry cloth and
cotton are also important in the
beach jacket line.
Beach Hats Popular
Hats for beach wear this year
are dominated by a distinct Italian
influence. Large, gayly - colored
straw hats with attached scarves,
streamers or novelty objects have
shown great popularity. This
year's wide selection of strange-
looking chapeaux gives every wo-
man the opportunity to express
her individuality and idiosyncra-
cies.
Broad - brimmed, man - styled
hats with madras bands are be-
coming increasingly popular, and
last year's inverted sailor cap with
witty phrases is back again.
Wear Scarves
In addition to the wide variety
of beach hats, various other types
of head gear will be worn on the
beach this year. Printed cotton
and chiffon scarves are always
appropriate. A few novelties have
also been added to these stand-
ards. One of the most unique in-
troductions is the plain colored
chiffon scarf with an attached
swab of artificial hair-a boon to
bedraggled pixies.
Also, beach bags are fabulous
this year. The new bags are
rubberized inside and are large
enough to carry all beach necessi-
ties-books, food, sun tan lotion,

P

suits and other camping supplies:
The new bags come in a variety
of curious shapes and colors. Some
resemble bongo drums, while
others conform to the convention-
al suitcase model. Complete beach
wardrobe sets are available which
include matching bathing suits,
hats, towels and beach bags.
Bold flower and novelty prints
have been added to the standard
stripped beach towel this year.
The girl who takes a dip without
a cap will be quite unique. This
year's caps come in an array of
unusual colors-flame red, bright
blue and unmistakable, oranges
and yellows.
Fancy Caps Popular
The real fancy type bathing
caps are the most popular. These
include flame-shapped or shaggey-
cut caps and others that boast
hundreds of tiny rubber flowers.
A final must for the beach girl

is a pair of exotic sun glasses from
the new, fanatic styles. Last year's
trend toward black-framed, plain
glasses has been replaced by a
definite movement toward the
wierd and the fantastic in occular
wear.
Flowered Glasses
The popular f lo w e r e d and
flame -shaped glasses for this
summer feature a conglamoration
of flashy color schemes - reds,
purples, pinks, roses, tourquoises
and pearlized grays. Such sun
glasses are addmitedly conversa-
tion pieces but add a zany bit of
appeal to any beach outfit.
All articles of beach apparel
for this year are dominated by a
touch of the new, the different,
the exciting. This gives every wo-
man the opportunity to comple-
ment her individual personality
by a careful selection of beach
togs.
