Raincoats Masquerade
In Rubberized Tweeds
Raincoats, this spring, are looking
C less like rain coats than ever before.
The most popular coat is made of a
rubberized material that looks like
tweed, and is tweed . . . It is cut
like any sport coat, belted with large
cuttons on one side. The materials
that are imitated are herring-bone
tweed, nubby tweeds, suede, and tree-
bark crepe. The obvious advantage
of this coat is that it can be worn
in fair weather as well as stormy,
thus serving a double purpose.

Everything from formals to bathing
suits can now be made with a ball of
yarn and a paIr of knitting needles.
Of course fo such a variety of

evolved, suitable for all costumes.

a silk thread whlich is used in the
lacey knits of the formal gons

popular angora and a yarn which
may be brushed out to closely re-

entire ensembles are being shown
in cotton or string mesh and a large
number of sports suits knit in rough
tweeds have been seen, with boucle
very popular both for suits and, in
the more lacey weaves, for rather
dressy frocks.
The sweater has appeared in an
entirely new guise as a tunic blouse
in solid colors or stripes and in
various weaves. If you would be in
the very height of fashion you should
match the sweater with knitted hat,
gloves, and purse.
