:her Weaves, Colors Will Provide Leeway.
Selection of Autumn Wardrobe Separates

Fall fashion gives a girl lots of
leeway in selecting' separates.
Skirt fabrics are richer in weave
and color; all exciting, and eachl
important enough to deserve an
entire costume built around it.
Straight skirts range from the
smoothest textures in deep greyed"
greens, bark browns, and berry
reds to shaggy plaids that splash
red next to gold and avocado next
to aqua.
The perennial pleated skirt ap-
pears in a couple of new variations
this season. Box pleats that aren't
-stitched down in vivid, subtle
plaids are springing up every-
where,nalone orhcoupled with a
matching top that ends at the
hipbone.
Kilts are back, and this year
some of the smartest are not
plaid; camel and navy are popular
for the one-color variety.
Coeds who spent precious study
hours taking up hems last fall can
breathe easy; skirts are just about
the same in length provided you
didn't get carried away last year.
Tailored Blouses
The look for blouses is simple,
soft and tailored. Test for a white
blouse: can you wear, it with an
opulent skirt, add all the jewels
you want to and not look over-
dressed? If the answer is yes,
you've got a blouse with just the
right shade of understatement.
In prints, madras plaids carry
off top honors. Close second goes
to tiny warm provincial prints that
create a special old-fashioned look
all their own. In white or in color,
plain or print, style is definitely
secondary to material and pattern
in this season's blouses-they're
notable for lack of gimmicks.

Jumpers follow these lines of
simplicity and richness. Waists are
back where we knew they were all
along; even the high-waisted
styles are fitted at the natural
waistline, and the sack look is
OUT forever.'
Wide Leather Belts
The Big Idea behind all this
variety in separates is this: get
'se eral of those striking wide
leather belts to join skirts and
blouses and have fun. Of. course,
for band-box perfectionists, there
is still a trend for the all-in-one
piece look.
This season shows more imagi-
nation in color, line and texture
than any fashion season for a
long time, and an investment in
separates is certain to double re-
turns in the effect created.
Green Book Bag
Shows 'Students'
Fashion for the further-outs
demands a green book bag be
carried at all times.
This bag, of ivy league origin,
is the accessory most in demand
for the intellectual look, if not
attitude. Some lined in plaid, some
lined in dark green, some unlined
-these bags come in two sizes,
small and economy. While the
book bag is obviously used for
carrying books, it is also stun-
ningly carried empty with brown
or grey coat beneath.
One of the problems, of course,
is that both men and women are
forced to wield the same style
book bag.

Variety of Style
Unlimited Color
In New Handba
Handbags for casual or ever
wear come in all colors and
a new variety of styles.
Black brown, gold and gr
leathers are the most popular
casual wear, but all of the
colors are in demand to blend v
dresses, coats and suits.
Solves Problems
The versatile clutch solves r
problems, especially for one
does not like a lot of hand
It is versatile and easy to 1
with books or keep on one's
at a restaurant or movie. Clutc
which are available in a w
variety of styles than the w
fiopover, comes in unlimited co
fabrics, and leathers.
The shoulder bag returns, ar
is good new's to again have 3
hands free for books or bun(
This casual style almost ali
has an adjustable strap, and 14
best with active or spectator s
clothes.
The Italian leather, the
fabric, the satchel, and the
bags are all popular.
Mark Innovation
A new innovation in ca
satchels and clutches is a fa
resembling leather, but which
been treated to be moisture
spot proof.
Small satin bags in black, w:
or colors dyed to match or
trast an outfit are the best
evening wear.
White is the favorite color
wrist-length .gloves. Long gli
are usually worn only for ever
A handy new innovation is
sweater guard. The oval bar
adds attractiveness to many
styles.

SKIRTS-Straight or pleated, they'll still the basis of every sirl's
wardrobe. This year's selection shows why. Variety, suitability for
every occasions, and a chance to use a little imagination 'In

SPECIAL SELLING

Fur-inside and out-is the bigv
news in coat fashions this year. ,
Raccoon, opposum, alpaca, and
borgana (nearest thing to fur
there is) are used for both dress
and casual wear.
Rich-looking tweeds in black,
white, brown or sporty loden green
are also important news.
A tweed coat with reversible
alpaca lining is the best dual-pur-
pose wardrobe item a coed could
invest in.
Storm coats are part of the fur
craze, too. Traditional cotton pop-
lin has been fancied up with rac-
coon collars and borgana linings.
And Australian oppossum fur
trims borgana-lined twill.
Also new and different this year
is the chesterfield coat which ac-
tually dates from the nineteenth
century and was named for the
Earl of Chesterfield.

It is very slim, single-breasted
and has suit-like lapels. A velvet
collar adds a dressy touch-the
effect is tailored and very chic.
Walking suits--a matching skirt
and flingertip length coat-are
also smart. And they're becoming
to both short and tall girls.
Cashmere blends and semi-pile
fabrics are especially popular this
year. One of the newest pile fab-
rics is zibalime. It is woven with
pile and then pressed flat under
tremendous pressure. Result? A
very fashionable polished look.
In the sport coat department,
the carcoat is as popular this year
as ever. This fingertip length coat
that comes with and without the
hood is just right for occasions
where comfort and warmth is the
word. The carcoat is seen most
this year in loden green.
