Novelties Worn For Day,
EveningJewelry Varied
Jewelry has become a personality
indicator with the introductio, of
different types from brooch to charm
bracelet, into the 1938 jewelry pa-
rade. The mood of the moment may
be expressed in your costume by your
bracelet, clip, or necklace v. hich
makes the selection of this final
touch to your costume more impor-'
tant than ever before.
The jewelry world is divided as
definitely into informal and formal
styles as is the fashion world.
Pearls remain the ever popular
necklace for sweaters and skirl, for
every type of personality. Double
and triple strands are more in vogue
than the single strand although the
size of the bead is important in choos-
ing the number of strands.
Gaiety In Jeweled Clips
The gay, sophisticated girl has
turned to large, unusual shaped :lips
with multi-colored jeweled designs
for daytime costume or for lhirt,
sweater, skirt combinations. Initialed
clips in either gold - or silver, "lain
or fancy lettering, are also suitable
for informal wear.1
For the demure, old-fashioned
mood there are lockets and crosses
of many styles and materials. Gold
is the most favored material, and
simplicity is the best choice in .tyle.
Novelties are numerous for inlady
who would express individuality.
Charm bracelets have reached their
peak in unusual ideas with ev;ery--
thing from tiny magazines to your
favorite cigarettes being offered to
be hung on your waist. The latest
necklace is hung with "wooden nick-
els" to demonstrate the truta of
that old adage, while other types of
coins are a favorite subject for neck-
lace and bracelet alike.
Chain Necklaces Favored
Heavy chain necklaes are being
favored for afternoon wear on silk
or wool. They may be simple chains
or dangle some heavy stone.
The newest in evening jewelry to
match the old-fashioned hoops and
styles in the ribbon tie. around wrists
and neck with a brooch on the ribon
at the neck. Formal lockets are also
favorites for evening. Cameo sets of
necklace, bracelet, and ring shove an-
other trend towards former days.
Pearl and rhinestone combinations
are as popular as ever to complete
the jewelry selection

ille And Grape Contrast
With Black And White,
Favored Combination
Christmas trees, holly w eaths, ca-
roling, and a general atmo-phere of
gaiety and good cheer see.. to sym-
bolize Christmas for us. Informal
occasions such as dances, open
houses, or teas are also chr acteristic
of Christmas and comprise one of
the merriest phases of the holidays.
For such busy days, it is the dream
of all college women to possess a va-
riety of date dresses which the events
of their social calendar' necessitate.
Limited incomes tend to shatter our
dreams of an extensive shopping tour,
but the shops are well supplied with!
smart frocks at the prices directed by
our pocket books.
Black With White Contrast
For the winter season, *iogue in-
sists on black and white as the smart-
est color combination. One frock
carrying out this color theme is made
of black crepe and features the new
rose-pleated sleeves and a low V-
neck. Delicate white lace is used in
the yoke of another black crepe with
a full skirt. Sheer black wool forms
a smart dress with pleating and lame
binding. The novel idea of arranging
jeweled clips to form your initials is
introduced by this dress.
Another frock called the "New
Monastic" is of ribbelline material
with a wide corselet belt and white
Lace collar and cuffs. The new "Skat-
ing Silhouette" is provided by black
crepe with a flared skirt and Fen-
cer's jacket, which is trimmed with
white applique. Shirred lastex forms
the "New Corselet" silhouette, and
the lastex gives way to a pleated
skirt at the hip.
Sequins Trim Jacket
A basic dress of black crepe with
a low neckline has a tricky jacket
which sparkles with vari-colored se-
quins. Gold and silver lame blouses
topping black velvet and crepe skirts
are popular for. dressy occasions. A
cherry colored frock with gold me-
tallic - threads has covered buttons
running' from the tricky neckline to
the hem1 of the flared skirt. The
simple lihes of the dress make it
ultra-smart for all sorts of engage-
Queen's blue crepe forms a new
frock called "Step Right Up." Fine
lace trimming on the front of the
dress to form little steps accounts for
the name. Alpaca wool makes a
stunning dress in a lovely new shade,

Formal Angora
Jackets Shown
Iltf Y Pastel Boleros Are
Warin And Attractive
It's an old secret that a formal with
a jacket is actually the equivalent of
two different dresses. But never be-
fore have there been such enchant-
ing and original jackets to combine
with a gown of which one has tired a
bit and thus create a completely new
and exditing outfit.
Perhaps the reason for this amaz-
ing revival of interest in evening jack-
ets is the introduction of the angora
bolero. It was a case of love at first
sight when the returning college girls
first saw some of these soft, fluffy,
and utterly adorable jackets this fall.
They have some very lovely ones
in the stores now-with short puffed
sleeves and of extremely long wool.
Of course one's date may threaten to
wax furious over the condition of his
suit after he has clasped you and the
bolero to his bosom during a romantic
dance but you can really rest assured
that he forgives you and is secretly
very impressed by the way you look
Or if you crave something more
exotic and different, one of the local
stores is showing some oriental jack-
ets bizarrely striped and intricately
Red And Purple
Feathers Adorn
Milady's Hat
"Be kind to your fine feathered
friends." Who knows but what they
may be made into that pert little hat
which will create a stir at that for-
mal tea during Christmas. For the
newest in afternoon hats is just a
bunch of feathers.,

A hat may take the form of a skull-
cap, adorned with a lifelike bird, or
it may be a pillbox with a jounty'
quill. The colors vary so that they
may exactly match your dress or
make a contrast, such as a bright red
hat with an all-black dress.
Less formal hats, for a show or
an informal dance, are also small.
They may be pillboxes, shakos,
bumper brims, or Watteaux. These
lie flat over all those curls on top of
milady's head and are made of
Petersham, with a wide bow across
the top to keep it in place. A most
practical combination of colors is a
high color on black, but very fetching
are the hats of Red Berry (very
bright red).
Use American Beauty and all fus-
chia tones. Royal blue is good again,
along with purple astor and grape
wine. Honey makes the list so in-
clusive it must include your best
frock or favorite color. ; These hats
are made of bagheeras or silk jersey
and their crowning feature is that
they are very small. Russian style
high brims are good but the crowns
are still small.,II
And now that Madame is all set for
the Christmas parties she mustn't
forget the hat she'll need for skating,
skiing, and just 'havin' fun! Of course
this must be angora and match her
sweaters, scarf, and mittens. The
brightest colors your heart can fancy
are found in these small angora caps,
and best of all they're as warm as
they are pretty.
