Clothes for this spring are design-
ed to give that well-groomed look.
Suits, with their many variations,
are tops. Lines are smoo her; skirts,
slimmer; and packets, shorter. The
height of brevity is reached in the
new b.iero suit. This can be strict-
ly man-tailored or softly feminine.
Either way it is exceptionally flatter-
ing and gives a broad shouldered, tiny
This same effect is achieved in the
wasp-waist suit. It is designed on
soft, uncluttered lines which com-
pliment any figure.
For all around wear the classic tail-
ored suit can't be beat. It may have
a four-buttozm, club collar jacket with
raglan sleeves or a one-button jacket
with high cardigan neckline and flap
pockets. The skirt may be perfectly
straight or have a kick-pleated front.
Attention pleasel Heres a
Bobbie Brooks Original
Weskit outfit that will get
you plenty of attention.
The new wide shoulder,

twill has two tiny imitation
pockets and clever adjust-
able belt in back. Skirt is
really "swingy" with its
many pleats front and back.
