'Up And Away'
Hats, Parisian
Designers Say

Military Hat Is New

Off -The -Face Vanquishes
Pull-Forward Chapeaux ;
Brims Of Felt, Straw
"Up and aw&y," or "boldly uncon-
strained," or "unloosened,' say Paris
designers of the spring hats to be
worn for Easter. And, indeed, this
spirit of youthful bravado prevails in
the draped and pulled shapes of new
While the forward pulled hat, in
visor expression, was our first love
this spring, the off-the-face, "up and
away" hat is our newest and young-
est favorite.
Styles By Thousands
From these simple silhouette types,
literally thousands of new hat styles
are devised. Nor does the type of
costume always influence the type of
hat. Visors are to be found
in dressy types, and off-face hats in
every manner of dressy or tailored
Diversity in the millinery mode is
greatly augmented by use of fabrics,
and combinations of fabrics with felt
or straw. Crowns softly draped of
fabric, have straw or felt brims.
Many fabric hats are trimmed in felt,
straw or leather, and vice versa.
Flowers Give Glamor
Flowers or feathers give youthful
glamor to hats, and color is seen
everywhere. With so many print
frocks being worn, a gay bunch of
flowers or a colorful feather match
the high color of the frock and add
greatly to the beauty of the ensemble.
Whether the hat is small or
brimmed, high or low-crowned, mat-
ters not, for it will be veiled anyhow.
Femininity is at its height, and
nothing is more flattering to the
average woman than a glamorous
veil fluffing about her hair and eyes.
Loosely draped veils are worn
about the brims of breton sailors
with an entirely new 1937 look to
them. Another trick of fashion is
to throw a large circular veil en-
tirely over the hat, letting it fall in
graceful ripples front and back.
Bonnets Are New
From Spain comes the fashion
whim to drape the veil to just hide
the eyes in front, and then swing
it in long streamers or full ripples at
the back. It is a fashion only the
more daring will assume. But every
woman may wear the crisp scrim veil
which is folded or draped carelessly
about the hat and tied in a girlish
bow at the back. Then there are the
smallish face veils that give an al-
luring shade for the eyes.
The straight brimmed sailor of'
straw will be a favorite with suits,
especially for these women who favor
the tailored mode. But the rolled
breton is extremely youthful and is
going to be very popular too. Felt,

Pillboxes return again, because
they are so young looking, and now
they are topped with perky flowers,
or embellished with a bit of peasant
embroidery. They are smart in braid-
ed straw or corded silks-veiled or
not, as milady chooses. Square pill-
boxes and high draped turbans give
variety and lovely profile effects.
These are especially youthful when
posed high, to show the new center
part worn in the hair. But. the more
sophisticated woman will wear hers
a little forward, and a bit jaunty.
Berets Of Ribbed Fabric
Bonnets promise to be one of the
new types worn this spring for they
have the charming off-face line so
many women like. And the new
styles in bonnets are neither "quaint"
nor childish, so that bonnet styles
may be worn by many types of
Be-ribboned, often with fluttering
streamers at the back and with softly
folded back or flared brims, the new
bonnets have more flattery per inch
than many hats women have worn
in past seasons.
A perennial favorite that returns
with a rush, and a dash of real spring
chic is the beret. "It will never die,"
say the hat designers, and each sea-
son they bring the beret back again
with new shapes and new manipula-
tions to give it the right silhouette
for the season.
This year's berets are inspired by.

Swish, Swing
In Fashionable
Taffeta Slips
Ruffles And Lace On Satin
Or Crepe Give Feminine
Touch ToLingerie
With the rhythm and movement of
dress design this year, it was inevit-
able that this swish and "swing"
should be adapted to lingerie. And
with the modes of 1911 competing
with those of 1850 in present fa-
shions, no one is surprised to hear
the rustle of taffeta petticoats again.
Ruffles and lace give the new femi-
nine touch to lingerie of gleaming
satin or smooth crepe. Bias cuts
and special gorings help mould the
figure in the desired long diaphragm,
high bust lines. And to give the
right "swing," these slip skirts are
cut wide and flaring.
For those who adhere to the simple
straight lines of the more tailored
mode, there are the clinging knitted
slips, with straight-hanging skirts.
These are ideal under tailored suits,
or sport togs.
There are taffeta petticoats for af-
ternoon and evening wear cut to flare
just enough to aid in the graceful
swing of dress skirts. These are
ruffled at the bottom and come in
many bright colors. They give a
dashing bit of contrast under the
dark dress or suit, often chosen to
match the colored gloves or blouse
Smooth fitting chemise tops and
pantie sets are also designed to give
sleek lines to the figure. And the
more erect carriage of women nowa-
days is helped by the correct, com-
fortable lines in undergarments.
the sailor cap, and sit a bit high
on the head. Then there are others,
of straw or felt, that have that round-
ed look of a flattened turban, favored
by many women. Other berets ap-
pear to have been inspired by the
Rembrandt beret, as worn by artists
in the Latin Quarter of Paris-and
Has Inverted Gores
Berets find new interest in ribbed
fabrics, and the new softly ribbed
or braided straws that lend them-
selves to this styling. Their sim-
plicity recommends them to everyone,
old or young, for wear with many
different costumes.
Besides the typical sailor hat, there
are many modified versions with
slightly drooping brims that frame
the face and are very flattering.
These are characterized by their
steeper lines, with crowns climbing a
little higher, brims sloping upward,
and often a flower or feather ac-
centuating this upward movement.

The ever practical skirt and swea-
ter combination this spring makes
exciting use of simple lines and
luxurious fabrics. Skirts are flared,
gored and almost as short as when
the flapper wore them, while un-
usual colors disguise classic sweaters.
Black and tan, forming the color
basis for any outfit, are enlivened by
any color accessory one might want
to wear.
Has Inverted Gores
A skirt of medium weight loose bas-
ket weave wool, made with six or eight
inverted gores to give the circular ef-
fect, would form the basis for a com-
plete spring wardrobe. The gores,
or pan'els as they are often called.
are seen more and more to be taking
the place of the conventional pleat.
Usually there are six of them, quite
narrow at the waist and wider at the
hem, giving a flattering effect to any-
one's figure. The waist lines are
built up, certainly a boon for those'

seem to have "that parting of the
ways" spirit.
Zipper Zips Clean
Added details which make for a
more complete and final touch are
really practical as well as smart. The
zipper, an improvement over the
snap, does away with ugly placket
bulkiness over the hips. Pockets are
large enough to put something in
them. Placed in the front they also
abolish bulkiness over the hips.
Paradoxical as it may seem, the
most popular color this year is really
no color at all, but a neutral shade
called "oatmeal." Perhaps the rea-
son for its smartness is the numerous
and extraordinary combinations it
makes possible.
Combinations Offered
Using a skirt of the color and pat-
tern just described, add to it one
black, short-sleeved, cashmere swea-
ter, one pair of single strand, lightl
amber beads, and a small, black, bre-
ton sailor hat, for one of the bestj

'Ever-Practical Skirts Feature GoresAnd Flares

The neutral tone of the skirt does
not have to be a dull uninteresting
monotone, but may be the new
"honey-butter" or "sand-dusky."
For accessories to the wardrobe,
choose lots 'n lots of colors. A multi-
strand necklace of small glass beads,
each of a different hue, wound 'round
and 'round comes in any length with
bracelet to match. Or try wearing
the neck of your sweater plain, with
dull gold clips set with large, bright
Scarfs For Spring
Scarfs, too, are necessary if you
intend to be "in the swing" this
spring. The color.] are terrific but
are very smart on plain high-necked
sweaters. Three-cornered or square,
stripes, prints or plain, the only re-
quisite in scarfs is that they be'
bright. Two plain ones tied together,
loosely is a clever way of utilizing'
your old scarfs.
If you go in for variety in any in-
expensive way, get some soft woolen
sweaters in the light pastel shades,

people whose sweaters and blousescombinations the spring has to offer.

a luscious old rose, a deep lavender,
or a sunflower yellow, and change the
accessories to match. But stick to
the black and tan basis this spring,
and you'll be the smartest one in
the Easter parade.
Red Earth Color Found
In New Hats For Spring
Red earth, the high color for spring
is also being extensively featured for
hats because of the striking color
contrast offered to brown, blue, black
or beige, it is being shown widely In
smart spring straws.
One hat introduced is of red earth,
trimmed in navy blue, while a shal-
low brim faced in navy grosgrain
ribbon shadows the left eye and puts
the correct finishing touch on one's
smart spring outfit.
