Many New Models,

Skirts and sweaters still get a,
unamious vote as the ideal outfits
for campus wear. Now the thing is
to have as many different skirts as!
possible instead of just the one which
has been combined with a good many
Stores are bringing in a broad
assortment of colors and styles in
skirts whch are very tempting when
we are in a "Springy" frame of mind.
With so many different combinations
possible, the new skirts encourage
even the slightest flair for originality
which you may have.
"Balloon" Shirts Billow
The "Balloon" skirt Is-the latest
version with its new billowing fullness
which is gathered in folds at the three
inch waist band. The material, of
fine quality of silk, allows the skirt
to hang gracefully from the waist.1
The designer was evidently thinkingf
back to the days of the "Gibson
Girl" influence when he created this
model. We had an immediate mental
picture of a light chiffon shirtwaist
with huge "mutton leg" sleeves above
this "balloon" skirt.
Stitched Pleats Are Practical
Circularly pleated skirts are being
shown in many more varied styles,
and they are turning to more practi-
cal and becoming lines. Now we
don't need to be afraid of getting
a style which will add inches to our
figure. They have cleverly placed
stitchings. and gores which are still
fashionably full but absolutely not
broadening. One type of gored skirt
is similar to a sunburst. The stitch-
ing is close together at the' top and
;radually widens as it nears the hem.
Indications af a practical minded
designer are those skirts which in-
stead of having pressed pleats are
stitched to keep the creases neat and
unwrinkled after an all day's wearing.
Waistlines Are Raised
Another group of those fine tex-
tured flannels features those unique
raised waistlines. A handsome pig-
skin belt at the natural waistline

Dressmaker Style


The foundation sone of every
woman's spring wardrobe, the suit,
appears this year in combinations of
stripes, plaids, or monotones.
A black fitted suit seen in an Ann
Arbor shop has a black and white
triped coat with wide sleeves and a
little turn over collar. The suit jacket
buttons with silver buttons all thej
way down the front and has a narrow!
leather belt.
Stripes Coverage
Stripes are used in the skirt of a
two-piece suit whose monotone jacket
buttons tight across the chest and
falls open at the waist. The sleeves
are tight and the turn over collar,
narrow. The jacket of another two-
piece suit exploits converging stripes
wkhile' its skirt is plain black and is,
cut simply.
Red Jabot Trims
The jacket of another soft wool
two-piece is cut with the broad and
narrow stripes running horizontally
instead of vertically. It falls open
down the front and is caught to-
gether with a buckle at the waist.
The pleated skirt is a monotone.
Navy also appears in a variety of
striped/ combinations. One vertically
I striped jacket has a stand-up collar,
thin patent belt, no buttons and four
1 pockets cut with stripes running hor-
izontally for trimming. A flashy red
jobot and long striped coat complete
the costume.
Piping Is Used
Another striped navy has the
jacket piped with a wide stripe of
self material, and another is trimmed
with a wide band of stitching. Both
have bright silk jabots and narrow
leather belts.
Plaids 'and checks come in for at-
tention, also. These appear in both,
the strictly tailored and dressmaker
jackets and in both pleated and gored
skirts. Plain color, or striped boleros
are a jaunty variation of the typical
spring suit. -
With peaked crowns or softly-
rounded tops, the new Mexican som-
breros appear in felts and light
straws. Banded gaily in bright{
braidings, or leather trims, they may
have fly-away scarfs at the back.
