Thank heaven we women aren't
reduced to begging Uncle Sam for
priorities on beauty. We may feel
as if we're in the army now by run-
ning around in much khaki and hop-
sacking in broad daylight but when
the sun goes down we can be our
own feminine selves in formal attire.
When you've forgotten you have
a waistline you'll love to go dancing
in those new lopg torso pullovers.

Be Fragile In Bouffant
It's for you, the fragile type, that
dressmakers live to design. They've
done lots of clever things like tuck-
ing bands of mink around the favor-
ite black velvet decollete or addi4,
miles to a bouffant skirt and winding
golden threads through it in the
shape of bows. And if pink is your
color, by all means wear it and wear
it a lot.
Drama leaves the stage for the
dance floor in the new handkerchief
drapery. The folds just ripple all the'
way to the hemline in a rayon crepe
material. Choose i1 in white for that
cool glass-of-milk look.
We're getting so tired of spoiling
our best with a jacket whenever a
dinner party is planned. You can
find the answer to the problem in a
swish of a purplish velveteen skirt
topped with a pale lavendar sweater.
There's a drawstring at the neck and
the waist which adds that peasant
look of naivete.
Ballet Inspires Gowns
If you really want. to make news,
appear in black faille cut to the bajlet
length. A square-necked white blouse
comes to the waist and is anchored
by a bright cyclamen velveteen cor-
selet for the touch of color. With it,
wear the iatching clips your grand-
mother bequeathed to you.
There's something new under the
sun in a cavalier cape that's ap-
pliqued at the round neck in an
enormous petal design. Yards and
yards of wool have gone into this
warm wrap to keep out the wintry
winds and give the crowning touch
to your costume.
Take a crack at these fashions and
see if you don't rate an "A" plus
from the stag line!

Evening Wrap

some who cling desperately to the

blouses, §traight skirts, short-sleeved
sweaters, ' high hells and socks, loud

stuff. Most women fall into this
group, we hope, as it's about the only
group that has 'any future.

You Can Be All Wet
And Smart To Boot
Even the freshmen must realize
by now that rain in Ann Arbor is
a. tradition, and the only thing to
do about it is be prepared.
The newest footwear for wet
weather is no longer heavy, clumsy
boots. The fashion experts realize
that you want to look smart, wet or
dry. For dress-up occasions, you can
keep your new pumps looking that
way by wearing a black overshoe of
dull or shiny rubber, covering your
shoe top and fitting snuggly and

The all-important first impression
of the evening will be achieved the
moment you step off the elevator or
walk down the stairs. If the dance is
formal, as so many are this time of
the year, your evening wrap will be
the most impressive feature of this
moment. The foremost acesire of all
who hold' the center of this stage
is to look as startlingly smart as
The coachman coat, which as the
name implies, has been copied from
this eighteenth-century institution,
and is as smart an evening coat as
one could wish for. It is fitted and
long, and caped in matching velvet.
Styled in red, this coat becomes par-
ticularly attractive.
A new version of the after-five
wrap has been designed so that it
may be worn over a formal as well.
Cut on simple fitted lines, this coat
is equally appropriate for either oc-
casion-formal or informal. In re-
gard to fabric, its velveteen basque
is combined with a wool skirt.
For something decidedly different,#
one might try a tweed cape. In con-'
sequence, your main event of the day
will be a dramatic one, indeed. The
typical greatcape is straight and full
from shoulder to floor, decorated only
by an outstanding clip worn on one
A copy of the Chinese coolie coat
