If you are one of those who, full of
the zest of spring, buy clothes on the
spur of the moment and end with a
scrambled wardrobe, change your
tactics and build this year around a
costume suit. The dress and match-,
ing coat, or jacket may each be used
with other ensembles, and they make
the perfect outfit when worn to-
Beige Used On Navy
Costume suits may have contrast-
ing full-length topcoats of heavier
material or shorter full jackets of
matching material. The latter type is
the more dressy. Bolero suits usually
consist of a wool skirt and bolero,
worn with a simple tailored blouse.
A dress of light fabric in Yuva
tanis, zippered to the waist, has a
pleated skirt and tucks radiating
from a small pointed collar. The ac-
companying three - quarter length
coat is of nubby wool fabric. A cos-
tume suit in beige has a dress with a
navy 'ascot and matching buttons
down the front. The loose hip-length
jacket has clever high slit pockets.
Caracul Trims Wool
A navy blue wool outfit consists of
a I simple tailored dress and a long
coat banded. with gray caracul. A
brown dress with a small white flower
print is topped off by a full-length
beige coat with a round-lapelled col-
A dress in beige Alpaca is buttoned
dlown the front of the hipline, where
it swings out in wide pleats. The
brown wool full-length coat matches
the accessoipsf 4, dress. A light-
weight woo beige ess with a tux-
edo front has..a fitted full-length coat
with o large ur collar.
Palm Green Wool Gay I
A costumnesuit of Palm Green wool
is brilliantly accented by a red fox
collar. Openwork on the dress bodice
leads up to a small bow and perky
¢points on the nekline. A grey wool
suit has a short loose jacket edged
with fox. The pckets are placed
high. The4 brown taffeta bodice of
the, matching dress gathers into a
cri*p bow at the neckline.
A rather heavy navy sheer is the
fabric used in a suit with quilted
cuffs and panels on its three-quar-
ter length jacket. The fitted dress
has a satin sash, and there are jew-
elled clips at the neckline. Another
of this same fabric has a lace bodice,
, gay red sash and jacket sleeves
banded with dark grey fur.
Dusty Rose Chic
A light blue wool suit is accented
with navy in scroll patterns on the
short jacket and zppers on the dress
sleeves. A dustybse wool dress is
worn with g full light blue hip-length
jacket of matching design..
Bolero dresses are a very popular
style. They are° especially effective
when the accen tlebodice is bal-
ancd by a pleat skirt.
Taupe tones 'in hose ranging from
taupe-beige to a rosy-gray hue are
sponsored for wear with navy cos-
tumes, but many will prefer the con-
trast of sunny hoiery colors. Light
coppery colors are considered best
for gejneral wear blending with navy
black, or the new range of grees an-
ticipated for spring wear. Stockings
with over-tones of soft rose or blue
are suggested with print frocks, or
navy as they blend well.

Even the plainest girl can be trans-
formed into a siren 'this spring by
wearing a frothy dinner dress that
will make her appear utterly feminine,
or by wearing a sleek gown that will
make her completely glamorous.
For that clinging vine effect wear a
mauve chiffon dinner gown with yards
and yards of material in the skirt.
Violet velvet ribbon forms the double
waistline, accentuating slim waists. It
ties about the bodice and matches a
cluster of violets a the low neckline.
A dramatic effect is achieved by
Carolyn's chiffon dinner dress in mid-
night blue, with a V-neck, a high back
and an extremely full skirt. The
gown is shirred with "Lastex" yarn
at the sleeves and at the bodice, ac-
complishing the slim, lowered waist-
line essential this Spring.
Fullness, Pleats Good
Breathtaking is Kalmour's dusty,
pink dinner gown of Celanese rayon
sheer. It is radiant with pleats, hav-
ing a pleated skirt and pleats draping
into a V-neck and secured by a
ewelled clip. The tiny waist is circled
by a belt of self-material.
Like a- very breath of spring is a
snow-white crepe dinner dress with
silver circlets gleaming on the round-
ed neckline and demure puffed
sleeves. The severity of the sweep-
ing lines is softened by a narrow
silver-edged belt.
Dull mat crepe is destined to be,
popular this coming season. This
material is featured in a saffron
model with golden leather scrolls ap-
pliqued on the high neckline and
short, loose-haniging sleeves. Ex-
treme fullness is gathered to the front
and held there by ties of the ma-
terial. A similar dress is modelled
in lark-spur blue and is trimmed
with a silver leather motif.
An exciting dinner dress is being
shown this season, adapted from the
peasant dress of Hungary and de-
signed by Pantlika of Budapest. The
frock of white chiffon has short,
pleated and puffed sleeves, and the
sleeveless vest is embroidered with
yarn in vivid colors and trimmed with
multi-colored buttons.
Femininity Desirable
Utterly feminine is the dinner gown
with a black crepe skirt circled with
tier after tier of black marquisette
ruffles. A white marganza top and a
red sash tied at the waist complete
this dashing dress.
Every woman should have one
loose-hanging, every-ready dinner
dresses that is suitable for any time
of the year, and that is especially be-
coming to the tall, slender figures.
One of these comes in navy blue crepe
with shirring from the shoulders to
the waist and with front fullness in
the skirt. The top has three large
pink agate buttons.
Ideal for those parties that are
thought up on the spur ofi the moment
is a black crepe sporting a bolero
embroidered with white flowers and
a sash of flame red. Equally appro-
priate is another black crepe with a
low-necked white top, narrow red
belt, and a white crepe jacket with a
red and white flower boutonniere.
Two-Tones Attractive
Be exotic in a dinner gown of two-
tones rose crepe. The left side of the
dress is the lighter rose, and the
right side is the darker shade. Two
scarfs are held in place at the throat
by a hammered silver clip and flow
over the shoulders and down the back.
Another half and half evening dress
is fashioned with a flowing wisteria
chiffon skirt and a saffron crepe top
featuring a cluster of purple violets
at the draped neck.

Buy Her White Iris
Instead Of Orchids
Although gardenias still rank first
with Michigan students, carnations
have been making a strong bid for
corsage honors, a recent survey of
florist shops has revealed.
Carnations seem to fit in with the.
modern trend, the florists say, which,
when added to their "clean appear-
ance" and the fact that they don't
wilt when milady has had them on
for an hour or so, accounts for, their
rising popularity. They are arranged
in groups of three or five, like the
gardenias, or are "fluffed" into a
round pom-pom cluster. An unusual
carnation is the "kokomo," which is
the color of cream with flakings of

atmosphere to these dances. Bared
shoulders and bouffant skirts are be-
ing shown everywhere. One dress
which expresses the sentiment of the
past is a pleated black net with off-
shoulder scarf, tiny waist and an old-
fashioned bouquet trim.
Gowns Express Romance j
Pleated chiffons and organzas are
more modern expressions of nine-
teenth century Romanticism. Smoky
grey (a very smart color for eve-
ning) organza with a bodice of grey
satin is another modern adaptation
of the romantic mood. Another
smart version is of black lace and
White organza. It has a cape over
the shoulders and an old-fashioned
paniered skirt.
Especially good this season are
dresses showing the Latin influence.
One of taffeta has a navy blue skirt,
a smocked white blouse and a navy
blue smocked bolero. Another in
black has a top of black lace ruffles
and a rep crepe sash. Ruffles of
black marquisette, tier upon tier,
circle a spreading skirt of black crepe.
A red sash and white marganza top
complete a very attractive gown.
Blouses Are Loose
Blouse and skirt effects, too, are
very popular. One delicately ruffled'
organdie blduse of shirt waist lines
tops a full silk chiffon skirt. Some
of the bodices blouse all around while
others blouse only in back. Loose
lines have become quite the rage and
fulness breaks above and below small
waists. Another showing the trenl
toward fluffy ruffles has a fringe of
upturned ruffles on the front of its
white organza blouse. The skirt is of
stiff dark blue chiffon.
Color contrasts are always smart
and are being used quite effectively
in evening dresses this spring. A
very smart dinner dress is of crepe
panels and draperies in two shades of
rose. Black and white combinations
are outstanding as exemplified in a
white Empire dress decorated with a
black velvet sash.
Plain fabrics are being contrasted

which is very short, but has a large
roll. Another style, quite the opposite
from the page-boy, leaves the hair
straight around the neckline, but
very curly on top of the head. This
is done by piling long curls high 1
abovethe ears and over the head. No
part is needed.
Curls Are Piled High
For those who do not desire curls
over the forehead, a large wave may
be worn, extending practically from
ear to ear. This pulls the hair up in
back, and the curls are worn high
on the back of the head.
Another style for evening featuresk
large loose waves. This makes a very
soft coiffure with two large curls
placed on the crown of the head. This
style gives the impression of long!
with large prints. A local shop shows
a large floral design on white chiffon
with a wide shirt shirred into a nar-
row waist. The bright, splashy colors
look painted on the white background.
Another, with a navy blouse, has a
full skirt of a bold flower print.
