ttractive Accessories Are Vital To Well-Groomed College W


To The Ridiculous


.Yet Unusual House" Coa ts'

Baroque Pearls,
Bracelets And
Necklaces Are


To be truly well groomed one must
select the proper accessories for every
costume. They should be in contrast
to the rest of one's dress but must all
contribute to make an unusual and
distinctive looking woman; neither
over dressed nor dressed in the drab
sameness which results from poorly
chosen accessories.
Best bet of the season are heavy
jewels in rich gold and simulated
precious stones. They are appear-
ing in oriental lapel fobs, chunky
bracelets and both dramatic and deli-
cate necklaces. Tortoise shell link
chains are stunning in a sparkling
burnt sugar tone that will match your
leather belt, purse and shoes for a
semi-dress tailored outfit.
Baroque Pearls Are .Popular
The day of the dainty one-strand
pearl necklace has gone and in its
stead has come the heavy triple
strand of baroque pearls to be worn
over severely tailored wool or alpaca
dresses. Clips and pendants pat-
terned after the Italian Renaissance
mode are being displayed and are
also made of baroque pearls and sim-
ulated jewels.
The place of all styles and types
of belts in the accessory parade has
grown into a major feature this fall.,
Along with the popularity of the
simple flannel dress has come that
of the narrow, stitched leather belt
in both natural and dyed tones. Many
of these are perfectly plain with
coarse, sporty stitching in plain sight
while others of suede have more in-
tricate buckles and shapes.
Highly Polished Leathers Popular
When one speaks of belts, the
closest partner of the belt, one's purse,
naturally comes to mind. More than
ever before they are being shown to
match and may be obtained in a host.
of unusual sets. The era' of the high-
ly polished sports belt and purse of
a heavy cow-hide has made its debut.
They are a perfect match for a trim
flannel sports dress of some con-
trasting color and are bound to be
a sure-fire hit for the active young
woman of the day.
When one is considering this busi-
ness of matched accessories it is well
to keep in mind our old friend, suede.
The colors are more interesting and
varied than in any other sort of leath-
er and the beauty of it is that not
only purses and belts are to be found
in suede but hats and shoes come in
the same colors so that a perfectly
matching set may be purchased.
Although it is not a good policy to
have too many matching accessories
as they will outshine your dress, it
might be well to remember that
gloves are also on display in all of
the materials and shades just de-
scribed. The University woman will
appreciate these for her more dressy
outfits when the belt and other more
severely tailored members of the set
are put aside.
The women on this campus seem to

.o .
prefer woolen mittens or knitted
gloves to leather ones for classes.
There is nothing better than bright
angora mits with a matching scarf
to add a bright note to your dark
win ter coat. Non-angoira hand knit
mitsewith one's initials on them make
an attractive set when there are both
sox and scarf to match and are
easily identifiable when lost.
Angora sox are a tremendous asset
in this world of saddle shoes and
galosh-less feet. Heavy, hand knit
ankle sox in all colors to match your
pet sweaters are a joy to any woman's
heart. And if you want to be really
original, why not try attaching a
little kitten bell to the cuff of your
Heavy Sox A Big Asset
When considering shoes for campusI
wear, it might be well to remember
that above all other things comfort
must come first. The simple white
Indian moccasin combines both com-
fort and good looks for sports and
daytime wear about the dorm or,
campus. Wooden soled Dutch shoes
are just the thing for tramping
through the slush of the first winter.
Monk's shoes of a sturdy pigskin
or cowhide with heavy leather lacing
up the side of the shoe is fashion's-
latest decree for informal -daytime
wear. They are good-looking and
bound to be the comfort triumph of
the year
