with buttons for trimming is shown in the striking creation of green
crepe, at right. The color of the girdle is rust and orange.
Net, Lace Flowery Prints Will
Be Seen In Newest Formals
So you're going to the Soph Prom!
We wonder if you're in despair, the
way we've been so often on the mor-
ning of a big dance, what with one
formal not back from the cleaners
and the disheartening discovery at
the last minute that you must have
dragged the only other presentable
one through some extra muddy mud.
Have you opened a new bottle of
cleaning fluid and attacked the of-
fending spots, or are you planning
to make a hurried trip downtown to
buy another formal, the one that
you've really needed all along any-
wearing or removing the gloves. Pret-
ty clever, isn't it?
As to cut, of course you know that
one must not allow one's shoulders
to come out before the public gaze
any more than is absolutely neces-
sary. To make up for the covered
shoulders, though, the neckline is
going down, and down, and down.
Instead of coming high in front and
low behind,,the newest evening gown
descends abruptly in both directions.
In fact, that naked look is all the
igg widely used, as the peal band

Where To Go
We are also due to blossom forth
in prints at this season, extra gay
ones, from all we have seen so far.
The very most "ultra" print gowns
are showing long gloves of the same
material, usually elbow length. If
you crave a little variety, however,
you may wear your gloves even long-r
er, until they almost connect with
the gown, and then you have a long
