Checks, PastelsHighlight Fashion For Reefer And Box

Coats

Starched White
Pique Collars
Wi l BeWorn
Pastels To Predominate
aIn Dressy Coats And
Classic Reversibles
By MARY HELEN DAVIS
New York and Paris designers have
sent us hosts or new models in both
tailored and dressy coats for spring
wear. Tailored and semi-dress coats
in particular this season have nu-
merous new touches that speak of
warm days to come.
White Used On Box Coats
Box coats are especially good when
they have a touch of white at the
shoulders or in the form of a pique
collar. One very good looking coat
of a light weight nubby navy wool is
being shown in a campus shop. The
shoulders are accented and the lines
of" the coat fall straight from a tail-
or'ed collarless neck-line. The neck
and edge of the lapels are bound in
navy gros grain ribbon. A large white
and yellow daisy perches on one
shoulder to add the final touch of
spring.
Coats for spectator sports wear de-
signed on box lines has been made
up in both large and small checks of
subdued tones. The material is a
loosely woven, rough wool that blends
well with spring suits. One smart
model of this design is of a fine black
and white plaid and has large ac-
cented shoulders and tremendous
patch pockets. The neck closes with
two large plaid buttons and has no
collar so that bright scarves may be
tied over the coat. The coat shown
in the cut is of naturalcamel's hair
cut in box lines and very simple for
campus wear.
Reefer Coats Still Popular
Reefer coats are very good again
this season and are being shown in
many new shades and materials.
Navy, the prennial spring favorite is
vith us again. One chic coat of this
model and color has the accented
shoulders and a very small collar and
lapels. The coat's most unusual fea-
ture is a stiff pique collar and lapels
of white that are detachable for the
frequent cleaning that the color de-
mands.
Reefer coats in light weight wools
are excellent when made of pastel
colors. One good looking one is of
Parisian blue with narrow collar and
lapels. The pockets are set vertically
at the natural waist line.
Pastel Reversibles Shown
The adaptible reversible coat is be-
ing shown this spring in all of the
new Easter egg colors of a new light
weight wool for warh days.. One of
the beauties of the coat is that the

Fuscia, aqua, chartreuse, dusty blue

spring suits.

Natural Baby Fisher is a soft new

ning bolero with three-quarters
length sleeves. Skunk and foxes worn
over tea-time gowns or formals will
be seen at the smarter receptions this
season.
Fur Trimming For Dress
Dressy spring coats invariably have
fur trimmings as always. Light col-
ored furs topping coats of full and
shirred lines are good for informal
evening wear. Light weight pastel
wools with accented shoulders and
shirred yolks will be seen for all dress
occasions.

Flower Scents Are
In New Perfumes
The recent appearance of spring
perfumes on the cosmetic counters
is the surest sign that warmer days
will soon be with us. Floral scents
breath from every bottle the charm
and glow of great spring and summer
gardens loaded with blooms. The
mystery of warm nights too, has been
felt in the influence of a new exotic R
perfume put out by Corday. It is
"Tzigane," a gypsy scent to blend
with the wandering spirit of many
new formals patterened on this
theme. Coty's "L'Aimant" is pe-
culiarly adapted to this season of
the year.
All lovers of the delicate summer
garden whiffs will enthuse over Pe-
rugia's new "Atmosphere," a per-
fume made of dozens of fragrant
French flowers.

Versatility Of Colors And Styles
WillAppear In Spring Scarves
<O-

-/ ^y.!

Vivid Tones, Modernistic
Design And Fish Nets
Are Latest Additions
By JANE SAPP
Time was when every bony-necked
girl shrieked with ,glee at the mere
thought of a scarf. Not only did it
camaflouge, but it also saved her the
trouble of starching her frilly collars.
Today she smiles serenely, knowing
that the scarf has become a staunch
institution for all women between the
ages of five 'and 93.
Scarves Are Unusual
Though scarves are steadily in
favor, they are as unpredictable, as
an Ann Arbor snow flurry. Who
would guess that the modern miss is
capable of changing a scarf into a
spring blouse by a few twists and
turns? A recent Paris creation shows
the result to be altogether pleasing.
It is said that the Parisian lass pins
a cluster of violets at her throat when
she feels that spring is definitely on
its way.
For those who live too far from a
florist shop and who believe that na-
ture should not be disturbed, an ef-
fective substitute has been designed.
This scarf ties so that a realistic
bunch of flowers is displayed.rOther
designs have a garden scene tattooed
in the middle of the cloth. Tulips,
lilies, and even a wee pansy peep
out between the warf and woof.
Vivid Tones Popuba r
And then there are scarves for
thohse who are a little careless about
their calories. One "bend from the
waist" scarf has an encouraging pic-
ture of a girl who did. It comes in
vivid tones in keeping with the out-
doors atmosphere.
However, the general drift is to the
soft filmy materials and colors. Pas-
tel squares, unadorned save for a con-
trasting hem are being draped around
necklines, tucked into pockets, and
carried as handkerchieves. Fragile
and versatile, they have a major role
in the spring parade. Amaranthian1

'signer will guarantee that you won't
look like a cross between algebra and
lightning, but they insist that we all
need a change from fragility.
. Your knowledge of polar bears may
be confined to the M.G.M. News-
reels, but that is no excuse for re-
fusing to wear one around 'your neck.
Large, clumsy ones and little adoles-
cent ones look very jovial on a scarf
with a navy background. Nothing
could be so refreshing for the ap-
proach of summer. They come in
large squares, about 24inches on the
side.
Ascots Are Trim
Ascots are still in full swing, as
trim-looking this season as ever. Taf-
feta, light wool, and chiffon offer a
varied choice. The large taffeta ones
make a crinkly bow to go with a reef-
er coat. The newest arrangement is
a scarf with four parts. When it is
all tied, only one color appears.
Chartreuse, cyclamen, violet, and ice
blue are favorite combinations. The
serviceability and versatility of these
compound scarves make them the
leaders among the new designs.
"Eatmore onions" and "Have your
breakfasts in bed" are the themes of
the "Have Fun" scarf. In the center
of interest is a very healthy looking
girl, freed from all her jitterbug ideas.
The material for these scarves is us-
ually a light wool.
However, the most revolutionary
thought in the 'scarf styles is "fishj
net." The net varies from tight weav-
ing to weaving loose enough to let a
minnow through. Wrapped around
your head for a turban, or tied about
your throat, they have a distinctly
salty twang.
Cardigans Of All Types
To Be Worn This Year
Cardigans and more cardigans are1

They may be worn with pearls or
over light spring shirt or blouse and,
