In The Knew' I
Forecasts Big
Blouse Sell-Out
Sheer Dainty Styles, Wild
Prints, Fitted Vestees
Are Fashion Advance
Since advance notes show that
suits are going to be the thing
again this spring, blouses, too, fol-
low the upward trend. Sheer dainty
lingerie blouses, wild print blouses,
to say nothing of fitted vests and
vestees, take the spotlight.
Among the realm of lingerie
blouses we find a predominance of
fluffy-ruffly things. One, a daintily
ribbed lacy model, has a tiny tailored
bow at the neck, narrow turned over
collar and cuffs and small pear but-
tons down the front. Other lingerie
blouses in organdy are also beruffled.
One very plain one of white organdy
has a six-inch-wide ruffle down the
front edged in lace.
Bow On Sheer Organdy
Another of sheer white organdy is
tied in back in a miniature bow rem-
iniscent of a bib tie. The front is
trimmed with vari-sized organdy
leaves edged in lace, and the triang-
lar cuffs on the sleeves are also edged
with lace. The blouse is stitched
from the waist up and five tiny
pleats start at the waist for definition.
On the new shorter-than-ever
dresses are found, ofttimes, a white
lingerie blouse showing only in front
under a bolero top. Chanel also
shows fitted vests under boleros.
Schiaparelli's bust-length boleros are
shown over high waisted skirts and
white lingerie blouses, or more col-
orful ones in subtle greyish shade
of pink or green. Piquet strongly
favors the skirt and blouse idea with
tie-silk blouses of wild color with
wide belts and plain skirts.
Stripes In Lineup
Even stripes take their place in
the blouse lineup. Navy blue and
white striped cottons are ideally cool
to wear with that mannish tailored
grey suit, and wild contrasts are the
rule rather than the monotone ac-
cessories of a few years back. Such
things as cerise dottde blouses with
navy blue are. very smart, and the
lquder the prin,. the better.
For evening wear, too, blouses are
in. A heavily-ruffled organdy blouse
tops a black chiffon skirt for dinner.
Piquet again shows jersey dresses
topped with blouse-like jackets for
evening. A black tiered tulle skirt
is shown . by Mainboucher under a
snowy white lingerie blouse with

ors, but stripes, as well, are shown
for evning wear plus one very new
note: knitted tunics or boleros.
White knitted tunics appear over
vivid re dskrts, or a red knitted bo-
lero tops a blac skirt.

skirts with their swing styles and

With the exception of the Tyrolean
style, the latest sweaters are cut along

two long panels of ribbing that start
from the waist band and end in nar-
row ribbed pockets.
Sweaters substituted for blouses
make a country of the city suit, and
add lovely color interest when chosen
in high pastels. Fine sweaters with a

The new afternoon dresses. are
something to become enthusiastic
about. The principle thing is to
purchase one you won't tire of quick-

Set-fn-Belt Seen
Campus shops cater more and more
to the tastes of the college student,
'One shows a sample of those stud
dresses which have gained .yso much
popularity recently. This version of
the style favorite has a set-in-belt,
a circular pleated skirt and square
pockets set at angles in the blouse.
Jackets are very good and are pre-
sented in a variety of ways. The
jacket dress seen in one shop has its
most attractive features in the flo-
man stripe blouse of twill. The
sleeveless vest has royal blue covered
buttons and button holes down the

beltless. The collar, however, is what
makes this frock. It has brilliant
blue and red felt hearts and flowers
appliqued° on the collar.
White Pique Trims
Navy blue is still a favorite and
white lingerie touches perk up the
simplest of gowns. The model has
an inch of pique pleating all the
waydown the front onreach side of
arow of white covered buttons.
A dress with white daisies on a blue
crepe field is full skirted and full

Some of the high points of fashions
are the sleeves which are all curves,
loose blouses, the new "high water"
mark of boleros over frocks of clipped
fronts and draped waists, skirts with
hip yokes and the two parallel waist
lines-one high and one low-with a
gathered yoke.
White Stripes Wool
Lelong has usei a zebra effect in
a crepe dress with a bodice crossed
in front and tied in back. Creed
uses narrow white stripes on the skirt
of his dressy black wool dress.

An interesting hat is one with a

effect. Then there is an adorable
little off-the-face bonnet with a wisp
of a veil floating from behind.

Advance .Notes
On Fur. Styles
Feature Bolero
Advance style notes reveal that
boleros, capes and scarves of soft,
luxurious furs are destined to be a
fashion highlight this season. This
new shoulder silhouette is bound to
add an aristocratic elegance to the
simplest of costumes.
Silver Fox Leads
Distinctive silver foxes are still
predominating as the leader in true
fur beauty. The silver fox cape is
more popular than ever, as it lenas j
a sophisticated, flattering touch to
any outfit. Sables, Baum Martens,
Kolinsky and Moleskins, too, are be-
ing "used a great deal in the new
spring fur pieces.
Sable Scarves Rich
The standard fur scarf, to be
thrown casually across one's shoul-
ders, is to maintain its popularity this
season as it has in those past. There
are many new variations, however,
in the styles of the fur neckpieces,
depending greatly upon the type of
skin used and upon individual tastes.
Rich, brown sable scarves may be
composed of from two to six skins in
one neckpiece, depending upon which
number the woman prefers to wear.
The sable skins may be twisted,
turned, or knotted in many original
Onenstunningsilver fox scarf is
made in double tiers of skins, coming
low in the back and clasped to an-
other horizontal tier which falls low,
elbow length.
Sleeves Are Varied
Small bolero jackets of different
kinds of fur promise to become the
most popular of fur styles. For af-
ternoon wear, boleros with short, el-
bow-length sleeves, some puffed and
emphasizing the broad-shouldered
effect, will be worn. Among the ma-
terials used are moleskins, foxes, er-
mine and mink.
One good-looking jacket is made
of broadtail, is fitted, has loose rag-
line sleeves and features a zipper up
the front. Another is of ermine. It
has the skins going vertically down
the front and horizontally across the
back and sleeves. A silver 'fox bolero
shows the skies running vertically
down the front and back 'and hori-
zontally on the sleeves.

Looking to an important shoe and
leather season, new spring hosiery
comes forth in sparkling colors that
have an undertone of softness to
blend with the costume colors. Many
new, "sunny" hues, including tan and
coppery tones, as well as the more
usual bieges, are smart with dark
