Facial Contours, Neatness'
Are Facts To Consider
For Latest Coiffure
The much-discussed controversy
concerning the up-swing trend in hair
dresses is still'quite prevalent. Most
of the prejudice against this new
style has been due to the fact that
many women who insist on wearing
their hair this way simply because it
is new have the wrong facial contours
for this type of coiffure.
Then, too, frequently that inval-
uable quality of neatness is thrown to
the winds for the mere sake of piling
the curls "on top." Nothing shat-
ters the dainty effect of carefully
piled curls more quickly than a
shaggy neckline. However, if the
coiffure is neat and styled to become
the woman's face, even men who
claim a definite dislike for the new
trend will admit its possibiilties of
producing a dainty, feminine effect.
Tricky Clips Adorn Curls A
The new style has now created an'
influx of tricky combs and clips as
- adornments for upbrushed curls. Car-'
tier's sparkling daisies of 'diamonds
add to the distinctiveness of high-
piled curls. Another matching daisy
may be worn on the lapel or collar of
a dressy suit or frock to complete;
this decorative new note in jewel ac-
cessories. Talbor has designed a new
headdress for the up-swept coiffure<
by combining ribbon, veiling, jade
and coral beads and cellophane flow-
ers to produce an elaborate effect of
elegance for formal wear.
If you prefer something less pre-
tentious for evening wear, the new
doll's hats are ideal. One tiny hat ist
composed of g6ld sequins, a small1
black veil, and a butterfly of vari-
colored sequins set provokingly on
top of the crown (if it can be called
h ) Velvet Doll fHat
Another version of that hat comes{
in black velvet with three gardenias
on top. The manufacturers have
solved the problem of keeping the
hats in the right positionby adding
an elastic for the purpose. To term
these novelties "hats" seems to be ant
exaggeration, but their general effectl
is very demure and ultra-smart.
Flower hats are also popular for1
formal wear with the new hairdresses.
Lavendar and blue flower hats tie
beneath the chin with black velvet
ribbons. Shades of lavendar are al-f
so combined in feathers fastened to7
little combs.g
For less formal wear, the new silver
and gold kid bows are popular. Se-
quins or gardenias on combs are alsol
very attractive with informal, dressyi

Streamlined Convenience
Is Featured In Bags
Whether you are going across the
campus or across the continent you
will appreciate the latest improve-
ments in weekend kits. The old days
of the square box with toothbrushes
and safety pins all scrambled into one
compartment have passed forever. In
their place we have the 1938 weekend
kit, complete with drawers and a
handle. It has been said that only
an expert can tell the difference be-
tween a young suit case and a week-
end kit.
One of the leading cosmetic manu-
factures has put out a kit with sep-
arate places for cold creams, soaps.
talcum powder and hand lotions. The
case has a small handle and is trim-
med in alligator skin. It is about
seven inches long and four inches
Leather Is Practical
Another kit, ni the higher price
class, is made out of genuine leather.
The lining is washable. In the cen-
ter of the top is a removable easel
mirror. The upper part of the kit
is a tray which can be taken out. The
tray itself is full of cosmetic jars and
compartments for other necessities.
Perhaps the most ornate kit we
saw was one of black pin seal. This
was trimmed with gold plated hinges.'
The whole effect was one of a small
Surprises In Store
One kit held a surprise for us. Un-
der the tray, which was not remov-
able, was a drawer which could be
pulled out. There was room enough
for a gown and slippers. No doubt
this is a hangover from the pencil
box days of our adolescence.
Besides the regular weekend kits,
there are other kits on the market
for a special purpose. A floral bath
case is the last word for the luxury-
minded. Four satin sachets, two bars
of soap, a jar of bath salts, and tal-
cum powder are included in the chest.
Satchel cases, which were formerly
the exclusive property of manicurists,
are now on sale for all who are in-
terested in the complexion on their
hands. Manicure scissors, orange
wood sticks and nail polish are all
provided for.I
Perfumes Solidified
If you are afraid that your perfume
will spill in your trunk, solidified per-
fume has just been created for you.
It is housed in a small kit with alli-
gator trimming. The perfume itself
is in the form of poker dice.
It is our guess that if a new kit
bag -is under your tree this Christmas
it will accompany you on your travels
for years to come.

Net And Pastel Chiffon'
With Sparkling Sequins
Stress Holiday Gaiety
-It's only twenty three days till
Christmas and high time that every
young girl ought to be giving her holi-
day wardrobe a serious little cogita-
tion. Every shop is bringing out a
whole carload of new formals to warm
the cockles of your heart.
Nets and fluffy chiffons seem to
be leading the race for popularity and
be sure to have rhinestonessor sequins
somewhere on the dress because
they're festive and gay. A prize in this
type of dress is a white strapless chif-
fon that has a much shirred top and
a tiny lace ruffle all around it bal-
anced by one at the bottom. The
simple severity of this dress is relieved
only by two delicate rhinestone clips.
Embroidered Black Net
Black net embroidered with a fine
silver thread is another leader in the
parade because of its chic distinctive-
ness. Fluffy lace with just a hint of
starch to make it stand out has been
made up into a smart strapless dress
that is trimmed in a narrow velvet
ribbon of contrasting color.
Purity seems to be the key-note for
holiday formals with the result that
one New York creator has designed
a white chiffon in simple Grecian

Clever jackets are being used to
"dress up" evening gowns' that you
have grown tired of. Gold satin bo-
leros are lovely with white chiffon,
and white is the ever-popular con-
trast for black.
Or perhaps you prefer a glittering
and sophisticated sequin jacket to
add a dazzling note to a extra special
evening. These usually appear in sil-
ver And gold, but there are some in
more softly gleaming pearl tones. One
unusual fitted jacket is of many va-
rious colors-rich reds and deep blues
and greens-the whole effect is irri-
descent and shifting as the colors on
a pigeon's neck.
Most of these jackets are at their
best advantage over a dark evening
dress. Some of the most beautiful
combinations are with pale pink, or
blue or even white angora boleros
over a supple black skirt of silk jersey.
Silk jersey by the way is enjoying
great favor at the present moment

than the black velvet skirts of other
years when it comes to being worn

Pastel Chiffons Lovely
Pastel chiffons might well be men-
tioned here too because one very good
looking one has been brought out in
a lemon yellow with a shirred waist
and tiny puff sleevs that fall from a
drop shoulder. The trim on this dress
is in the form of a tiny velvet ribbon
tied in bows down the front.
Sequins are sharing top ranking
with rhinestones and they have been
woven into a very wide girdle of bright
colors to decorate a dress of fluffy
silk net dyed a rich chocolate brown.
The waist of this dress is very full
and shirred.
New York has created a very un-
usual dress of this sheer net that

one over the other so that the total
effect is a sort of irredescent change-
able shade. The colors are rose, em-
erald chartruese over a rose taffeta
slip. The dress is trimmed by a nar-
row velvet ribbon over a shirred top.
Another net is a girlish dress of ciel
blue with shirred top and pink velvet
rosettes through the vey full skirt.
Girdle Of Sequins
With sequins in such good stand-
ing, they have been featured in one
dress that has a girdle of them in the
shape of huge diamonds on coal black
sequin on a pastel net. Other sequin
designs are found on the black nets
where they appear in the form of fire-
works worked out in little splurges of
bright designs.
Running a close second in materials
is the very sheer silk taffeta. One
classic example of this dress is called
"Adagio." It is red and has very
much of the Spanish worked into its
design. The skirt is shirred and has
yards of material in it. The waist is.
quite simple with drop shoulders de-
signed to be very white in sharp con-
trast to the dramatic lace mantilla
required for the head.
Brooch Relieves Severity
In deep theatrical purple, another
taffeta dress comes with, a huge
antique brooch with amythest sets
as its only decoration and relief from
the severity of tiny cord straps.
The Empire influence seems to have
made a strong impression on the de-
signers because they have created a
striking dress called "Versailles". It
has an Empire bust and draped off
the shoulder line with a corselet waist
which drops to a very full skirt of
blue faille silk.
Another period dress of a heavy
bengaline silk has appeared in the
displiy windows. This dress has large
hoops with the '-lonial influence
carried out still further in a dainty
bodice top. The material is a delicate
shell pink with burgundy velvet rib-
bon trim.
Brocades Are Regal
Regal materials have been spot-
lighted this winter and the brocades
are top ranking among these. From
Paris comes a blue brocade taffeta
with a bodice top, shirred ruffle skirt
and narrow cord straps. In moire silk
comes a cream-colored dress with vl-
