Varied Choices

Here we are back in the "Hi!" ways
and blithe ways of campus life. And
what is the first thought in the fem-
inine mind in the exciting contem-
plation of this merry (well, most of
the time) existence? You've guessed
it! Clothes, of course.
This season's fashion notes show us
that more than anything else, good
common sense has much to do with
the styles you, as an individual, will
adeopt. For a comparatively free
reign is permitted in a field of varied
modes, colors, and materials.
Silhouette Is Straight
There is the' straight and narrow'
silhouette, almost severely slim, strik-
ing the newest note for both after-
noon and evening wear. From Paris
comes word that for smartness noth
ing surpasses the high corseted look
with the waistline lowered to the hip-
line, for these accentuate the sheath-
like profile. Furthermore, the em-
phasis on draping and' shirring is
noticeable everywhere. Waistlines areI
deeply shirred, setting off tiny
waists to advantage. Sleeves and
bodices display shirring when they
are not draped tightly.
Spring and summer fashions gave
us the flared skirt, which promises
to retain its popularity.
New Skirt Lengths
Concerning the lengths of these
skirts one hesitates to be explicit.
Some experts say they are 'definitely
shorter"; others maintain that street
and afternoon dresses are a bit longer
with evening dresses creeping up-
ward. From this we may infer that
we are free to choose whatever
length best sets off our own figures.
That you should take your own height
and the shape of your own pair of
legs into consideration when deciding
how far from the ground your hems
shall be, is, most important.
Such lines, of course, have a
strong effect upon the materials out
of which the models are to be made.
Soft jerseys, in both silk and wool,
are especially adaptable for drapery
and shirring. As usual, woolens lead
in the materials of fashion, but this
y*ar, they are short and fleecy, per-
mitting them to cling to the figure.
In addition, these two, the woolens
and the jerseys are often combined.
Chiffons are being cut in tailored
styles, particularly for blouses, often
trimmed with velvet. Velvet is like-
wise used to accent wool. Duvetine
and broadcloth are extremely pop-
ular fabrics, the latter oftentimes
being relieved by velvet or suede.
