Tweed Suits


To spring


Wine, Purple
Pink And Ble
Are, CombIned
Tailored English Charm
Is Found In Collarless
Jackets And Scarves
The first day of spring is only seven
days off, so right now the essential
thing is to "suit" yourself in one of
the gay becoming new outfits dis-
played in the shops.
The prominence of tweeds at Paris
showins and chic resorts has deli-
nitely confirmed their "fashion-
rightness." Poly-colour will also share
an important place tin the fashion
spotlight, Even four colors are not
considered too many. For instance,
pink, blue, wine and purple have
been successfully combined. This fad
is sure to provoke any incinations to-
wayd originality that we may have.
Collarless Coats Appear
Collarless lines appear on many of
the suits, thereby contributing to the
popularity of scraves. One outfit
which has just arrived in a local
dress shop has that English charm
for which so many tailored suits
strive all too unsuccessfully. The
fingertip cape and dressmaker Suit
are of a firm mannish tweed seldom
found in women's clothes. The jacket
of the suit is collarless and closes
with brown buttons. .
Pockets. Are Unusual
One of the most frequently seen
newer colors is yellow, or what they
interchangeably call gold, maize and
wheat stalk. In this shade one of the
campus shops is showing a model
with a tiny, round, stitched collar and
half-moon pockets. A grey flannel
suit also presentsT an attractive pic-
ture in its unusual petal-shaped pock-
ets. A red and white scarf and
hankerchief add the final touch.
Zipper-closed, jackets have also
come in along with the March winds.
They present a new neckline-high
at the sides and back of neck-which
formerly has been seen only in dresses.
Lockspur Is New Hue
Blue has been combined with all
colors, one of the smartest combina-
tions being blue and natural. A well-
known fashion magazine emphasizes
a larkspur blue as brilliant a the
azure sky. In the same issue they
feature a bolero suit of nubby blue
wool. There are two pockets with
two-inch flaps on the bolero and two
pockets on the skirt.
A two-piece suit with a conserva-
tive brown, white and beige plaid
skirt with pleats all around is topped
by a plain beige "jigger" coat. An-
other, which promises to be very
good for campus wear, is also in beige.
This one, of herringbone tweed, has
a brown velveteen collar and the boxy
shoulder line.

Models For Street Show
New Jligh Fronts; Sport
Shoes Are Peasant Type
Gay, youthful, sopaisticated . . . the
new spring shoes embody all of these
things in just the right proportions.
For street wear the newest shoes
are designed to cling in such a manner
that even with a moderately high heel
?or walking, the ankle remains sturd-
ly held with little fear of a sudden
lurch caused by insufficient support.
Are ruilt High
The smartest of the street shoes are
3uilt high along the front and lit-
:rally sprinkled with perforations.
One of these, in a vibrant Paprica
-hade that gives a lift to any dark
.resemble, is of smooth kid with the
3riss-crossed built-up front covered
with perforations. Both toe and in-
step are open and a metal buckle fast-
ens the modified swing-strap at the
side. The heel is not high, but is very
sturdy for moderate walking.
Gabardine in combination with
patent leather is especially comfort-
able and very springy looking. One
is of navy gabardine accented with
latent of the same shade. Very
imple and dignified, this oxford is
anightened with interwoven patent
circles along the instep and across
the toe. The patent heel is slender;
but not high. Another in this same
oxford has patent toe and heel
stitched in outline.
Opera Pump Good
Perhaps the most flattering o
all shoes for those with trim-looking
ankles is an opera pump. A new
pump model with a laced effect in
front is made of hand-sewn lizard iii
black or brown. This shoe is so ver-
satile that it is a welcome asset to
"ny well-rounded shoe wardrobe.
Already limen is making its bid
for popularity. One shoe combines
darker kid with natural linen. The
kid affects a criss-cross pattern up
the front and lengthens and slen-
derizes the foot. This model, too,
fastens with a swing strap and the
heel is of the dark kid.'
Peasant Shoe Sturdy
Other shoes, not so dressy, may
be found in a low heeled front with
a wide strap running through and,
buckling at the side with a large
metal buckle. The oxford is particu-
larly cool, being made of rough linen
with a sturdy felt composition sole,
and comes in blue, natural, or dark
brown. The other, which comes in
a variety of colors, blue, tan, grey,
white or black, may be obtained in
either buck or calf.
Sport shoes this spring are more
rough and tumble looking than ever.
Low heels, thick composition soles and
comfort are the essentials, and any-
thing goes if it successfully combines
these three elements.
Lanz, of Salzburg, has designed two
out-doorsey looking peasant shoes.
One is a square-toed, four-eyelet ox-
ford in buff buck with a very flat heel
and heavy sole. The tongue is rather
feathery-looking and that, plus a
long line that runs down the middle
where the leather is reversed, makes
this youthful and slenderizing. The

Hose Problem
New Iridescent Shades Are
Having trouble with the 'holey
heel' problem? This season you need,
no longer have qualms about suchl
. things if you wear the new 'rib-row'
heel featured by one of the better
stocking manufacturers. These sha-
dowy ribs not only give extra wear
to your hose but they do not feel bul-
ky on your heel-rather they tend to
slenderize your ankles.
The new spring colors still seem
to favor iridescent shades for wear
with the new iris and violet blues
which will form at least a part (if
your spring wardrobe. Rosy coppers,
too, are good to accent beige and pas-
tels, and a new warm beige is uot for
the dark prints and subtle off-shades.
Any one of these three colors is ver-
satile enough to wear with white,
navy, or black.
Naturally, for daily campus wear,
a woman demands not only plausiblei
sheerness, but durability as well. For
this kind of wear another manufac-
turer has created a three-thread
stocking that actually looks as sheer
as evening hose yet, is strong enough
to withstand the hard everyday wear
to which on the average they are sub-
For evenings, of course, there are
several lovely new shades that may
be obtained in filmy two-thread hose.
Among these is one of sunny beige
that is a perfect complement to al-
most any evening ensemble.
A new dressmaker print bathing
suit has a halter back. and ,a skirt!
which can be used interchangeably'
for a cape. The entire suit is piped
in a plain color.

Vacation Trips
Call For New,
Bathing Suits,
Now while the snow piles up under
the eaves and the wind twists com-
plainingly around the chimney is the
probable time to plan your spring
vacation to the southern parts of
the globe. Whether it's a trip to
Florida or a cruise to Lie Bahamma
Isles, you'll want a -new swim suit.
Always irresistable are the bright-
colored celanest rayon swim suitsI
which combine both comfort ands
fashion so successfully. One suit has
groups of small dots sprinkled over
a blue background and has a bit of
shirring at the neck for fit and trim-
ming. A yellow suit is printed with
green pine needles and -brown pine
cones. Another dressmaker suit has
a very full halter top and an equally
full skirt shirred in at the waistline.
Design Goes Nautical
Lastex continues its popularity of
last summer, the new suits coming
in asattractive styles and colorful
prints as those in other materials.
One lastex suit is distinguished by
a diagonal stripe of bright figures
over a dark background. One rachel
satin with lastex yarn goes nautical
with dark brown sea shells printed
on it. Nor is lastex confined to mail-
lots, for there are many figured bra
and pant suits.
Hats Match Suits
The suave flattery of rubber can-
not go unnoticed. One rubber suit
with hat to match is white printed
with blue flowers. This has a snap-on
halter. Another figured suit has a

Tramp In OxfordsI
Light, cool duck made up in a per-
fectly plain low-heeled oxford will be
the choice of a good many, both
for everyday wear and tramping, and
for wear when inland lakes and sail-
ing calls. They solve that tricky
problem of what to wear when one is
afraid of ruining the shoes.
And who could ignore the perennial
saddle-shoe? Yes, they're still wearing
ahem. Nothing more need be said.

IMPORTED - from the further most tip
of the Argentine comes this soft but tough
St. Juluian wool. Sweaters are soft and
fluffy, the skirts, shorts, and calot (though
of the same yarn) are knit in a porous
hopsacking type of stitch so as to be firm
and sturdy - not only beautiful in texture
but practical as well, because they launder.
This season it is smart to mis-match your
skirts and sweaters. You follow no par-
ticular color-scheme, but indulge in any
whim you may have, and thus, be com-
pletely individual.
"PICK 'N PAIR" to your heart's content!
