Great Variety Of Formal Attire
Adds Life To Ballroom Scenes

With the Engineering Ball and
Soph Prom and hordes of fraternity
affairs in the offing, the problem of
formal attire takes the foreground
once again.
Compromises between fashion dic-
tates and individual preferences are
simplified by the present .feud be-
tween the advocates of the "hour
glass" figure, the "little girl" look
and the "shaggers' comfort" models.
Practically any silhouette is "right"
at present.
Long Sleeves Are New
For those. whose trim figures need
no flattery is a watery-blue velvet
and net creation whose long sleeves
and straight bodice are relieved by
a startling flair just below the hips
Although adaptable to costume jew-
elry of almost any color, the severe
simplicity of this model is most af-
fMctive when unrelieved.
On dreamy evenings take out the
bouffant skirt that saw last year's
J-Hop. Shops have an infinite vari-
ety of concealing jackets that change
the whole appearance of a tired gown.
Of red velvet or black taffeta, many
of these are enhanced by gold or
colored sequins. The new evening
sweaters, definitely no longer merely
an adaptation of the sports mode,
are usually decorated with delicate
beading or gold braid.
Silk Jersey Popular
Silk jersey, which made its formal
debut last year, is gaining in popu-
larity for evening wear. Black, white,
and red seem to be the favorites in
this fabric.
Suitable to draped lines and heavy
beads, many of these models are
made with separate bodice and skirt,
each adaptable to many variations.
In fact, two-piece formals and two-
piece daytime dresses are being mixed
with successful results.
Gold Worn With Silver

for the Future
These lovely linen luncheon
cloths are just what you want p
to give to a prospective house-
keeper. Give her one of these
colorful, handblocked lunch-
eon or bridge sets. And at the o
same time, get one for your-

gold and silver do not mix is a bro-
cade formal whose draped blouse is
of a rich glittery color, while the
skirt is as silver as a sunlit fountain,
poetically speaking. A single strand
of pearls, yes, the same pearls that
go to classes, softens the appearance
of this startling combination.
A distinctive variation of a classic
model is a white chiffon with yards
and yards of width in the skirt. The:
1939 touch is manifested in a corseted
waistline and extremely low "v" back.
A red brocade shot with gold thread
is an unusually perky creation, one
especially exciting on the petite girl.
Red Riding Hood Starts
New Style In Headgear
Hoods make the glamorous woman
practical and the practical woman
Besides being flattering in appear-
ance hoods give warmth and protect
the curls. They have been put on
reversibles, jackets, ski suits, evening
coats, formals, and woolen and silk
afternoon dresses. Many are lined
with contrasting colors or different
materials, while others are trimmed
with fur. Some have the added ad-
vantage of being detachable.
