Ty icl examnples of the college girl's favorite two-piece outfits are
those pictured here. Both ire simple wools, which may be "dressed
up" or "down," as the occasion dictates. Shirtwaist top, full skirt, and
mniitary sleeves combine to make the dress on the left outstanding in its
simulicity. The other is the more versatile, since the entire checked
ensemble may be worn with an ascot, to make a. chic afternoon dress;
or the skirt may be combined with numerous sweaters or blouses,
excellent for campus wear.,



Studying Made Easy By Addition
Of Lounging Pajamas To Outfit




Lounging pajamas, although 4 ot as
convenient as house coats which can
be easily slipped on over sleeping:
p.j.'s, have a definite place in the
college girl's wardrobe.
Needless to say, Winter isn't too far
off, and, needless to say again, Ann
Arbor's winters are not of the mildest
sort. However, warm weather or
cold, studying continue , and being
comfortably dresser, can e of in'esti-
mable aid in preparing next day's
Three-Piece Outfits, Attractive
What could be more attractive on
an icy winter evening than a three-
piece flannel lounging pajama out-
fit, in one of the bright new plaids?
The third piece can be either a short
jacket with long sleeves, or a three-
quarter length robe, in which case it
may also be used as a bathrobe. The
third piece is not, of course, eisen-
tial, and some very smart red, blue,
and green two-piece sets, in checks,
solid colors or combinations, will serve
the purpose admirably. For the more
conservative girls, there are always
handsome navy blue, brown, or black
Lounging pajamas, too, have come'

in for their share of the new styles,
and almost every new effect for
dresses has had a counterpart in the
styling of the latest pajamas, with'
the exception of the bustle back, of
Tailored Pajamas Popular
The tailored miss will find her
ideals among the shirtwaist tops, and

crease, comparable to that in a mann's
For the girl who prefers to lounge,
in "dressier" fashion, there are gay
) nsembles featuring balloon sleeves,
and balloon pants legs, with a bright
sash around the waist.
