Even the prospective breadwinners,
among us are granted one time' in
our lives when we can find the lei-
sure (?) to lounge around informally
in a smart-looking housecoat' and be
a boudoir fashion plate, and that
time is while we are in college.
Designers, shop-keepers, and buy-
ers are all on our side, and they have
seen to it that we no longer need to
shrink at the thought of anyone see-
ing us in the old-fashioned "bath-
robe". Graceful lines, soft materials,
and color appeal make the modern
negligee or housecoat a joy to a
college woman, and most of us can-
not accumulate enough of them.
Light-weight Rayon
Even with winter in the offing,
light-weight housecoats are indis-
pensable for the rare occasions when'
your residence has the heat turned
on. so that you can notice it. Rayon
is proving to be one of the most pop-
ular materials; because it is made in
delicate or vivid colors, as you wish,
looks perishable, and yet is really
the best bet for practicability. Per-
sonally, we can't tell the difference
between some housecoats that are
new and others that have been wash-
ed innumerable times.
French blue has entered the scene
with an eloquent gesture, and pro-
vides the background for many of
the season's prettiest prints. Bright
colors and gaiety of design seem to
be the answer to a rainy afternoon
of studying.
Flair Skirt Appears
Where, more than in the modern
housecoat, could the popular flair
skirt and full front be more advan-
tageously employed? As skirts get

Sleeping wear? Ah! There is one
part of mi-ladies wardrobe that owes
much to today's revival of leg-o-
mutton sleeves, eyelet embroidery
and wasp-waists.
In fact pennies are now being
spent for pajamas by women who,
heretofore, had sworn they would
never own a pair, and dollars on nigh-
ties by those, who before, had never
given such things as much as a
And no wonder!, Have you seen
the fitted flannel nighties, trimmed
in pink rick-rack and eyelet em-
broidery, with their long sleeves
gathered at the wrist. They are
quaint, attractive and very practical
for zero weather. Other models have
straight boxy lhies with an old-
fashioned yoke top. The flannel is
soft and comes in pastel prints.
Flannels Are 'Butcher-Boy' Style
The "butcher-boy's top predomin-
ates among the flannel and heavier
cottons. One shop is showing pink
and blue "butcher-boy" models
trimmed with contrasting eyelet em-
broidery. The trousers are very wide,
even swashbuckling, in their full-
A pair that is sure to be your
'favorite is made of a soft blue vel-
vety wool-silk material trimmed in
white angora. The square neckline
with its angora trim is emphasized
with three lines of open-work three
inches below the botder done in the
same soft, white wool. The sleeves
are puffed and the lines of the
jacket, boxy.
- Robe Matches Pajamas
If you are the tailored type, a
white pin-stripe on navy fashioned
in the 'oft-showed' butcher-boy lines.
with a high color and wonderful
three-quarter length sleeves is "it."
-The trousers on this suit are also
'very full. A pin-stripe robe may be
found to match. It has fitted lines
with the. two sides joined together
With one loo-o-ong zip - - - p-er. A
fringed tie-belt completes the fit-
ting at the waist.
P.S. The collar is high And round-
ed too, and the sleeves full-length
and cuffed.
Matched sets of pajamas and robes
are also in evidence. One particular-
ly different style was, a fitted, wrap
around robe, made of an old-fashion-
ed blue and pink print With two
little gathered pockets and sleeves
full to the elbow where they are
gathered in a froth of organdy trim.
The neckline is high and rounded
and also trimmed in organdy as are
the pockets. A wide border of the
organdy emphasizes the width of the
skirt and best of all, the waist is
