January's first few days of un-
seasonable winter weather and sun-
shine have detoured thoughts from
woolly socks and heavy coats to
lighter clothes. Of course there may
be a severe cold wave within the
next week, but while the weather is
mild and sunshiny it is pleasant to
speculate idly about summer clothes
Dresses and accessories for the
South, shown in shop windows and
in current magazines, forecast what
will be popular for summer wear. In-
dications of the peasant influence in
cruise clothes hint that it will be
important this 'summer. Cheerful
wool embrodiery, bright fantastic
colors, little jackets, kerchiefs, full
gathered skirts-all these are con-
Paisley Prints Good
Paisley prints and violent stripes

summer on formals with candy cane
or barber pole effects, but the paisley
is new. It may even appear in spring
clothes. Not only is it used in wash-
able dresses, but also in scarfs and
A new woolen fabric that is perfect
for southern travel is a porous ma-

Many houses have made it up in

though it is wool it is as light and
cool as linen.

Look Up 'Drindl'
"Dirndl" is a word that should be
added to your fashion vocabulary, for
it is a type of dress that will prob-
ably be a headliner for summer. It
is distinguished by an extremely full
skirt and tight-fitting waist, some-
times topped by a little jacket. It
is equally attractive as a daytime and
evening dress. One dirndl, designed
for dancing on a Havana-bound ship,
features a black skin-tight bodice and
a gathered, spiashy-flowered skirt.
There are short, puffed sleeves in
An amusing fad which may die
out before summer is a flat, shape-

has not the slightest evidence of a
