New Look'
For Spring
Feminine Appeal Replaces
Sloppy Look for Relaxing;
Bluejeans, Pajamas Out
By MARY ALICE CHENEY
SOME 300 COEDS in bobby sox
and sweaters sat self-con-
sciously around a circle two week.'
ago in the League ballroom while
seven impeccably groomed models
introduced what the college wom-
an should wear this spring.
From all calculating glances, it
seems that the "new look" has
been mathematically adapted for
spring, with daytime wear at a
maximum of 13 to 14 inches above
ground and evening wear swaying
eight inches from the feminine
foot. Manufacturers must now
provide for the yardstick along
with the toothbrush and comb.
Assurance was given that even
if waists did not resemble that of
Brenda Starr's roommate, they
would definitely not be pinched.
After all, breathing fresh spring
air cannot be dispensed with en-
tirely. Then, when the waists
have been inched down, boxy
jackets are added to cover the
effect. Maybe to take care of the
remainder left from the division.
. ~ Underneath the jacket is a new
article introduced this spring,
which looks about as cumbersome
as its name-cummerbund. The
donning of this should lengthen
dressing time a good ten minutes.
EVERYTHING WAS gzoing ex-
""cept skirt lengths. Collars
hugged the feminine throat; jack-
ets were cut off to bolero length;
shoes had elevator soles and ankle
straps laced up around the leg.
As more arm and neck were cov-
ered, more feet were bared.
After several variations on
brown and green, two new colors'
were introduced; namely Mexi-
cana red and tangerine. Both were
adapted to Chinese influenced
costumes.
Pink lipsticks replace the ver-
million now evident, and light
powder shades threatn the end
of the pan cake container.
Most challenging, however, is
the eininist movement in clothes
for hours devoted to relaxing. The
end of the bluejean era was pre-
dicted, with frilly blouses and flar-
ing skirts taking over the lime-
light. Methinks it will take much
legislation to divorce the coed from
'the bluejean.
But it is not enough that they
take away the bluejean and sub-
stitute the taffeta petticoat. They
also insist on the destruction of
the doctor denton's and brother's
'Pajamas so carefully smuggled
into the suitcase, and suggest a
filmy, feminine nightgown in-
stead. . . . . It has absolutely no
effect on my roommate whatso-
'ever. But she didn't get the good
word.
Necklaces Will
Add to New
Spring Attire
To enrich your new Easter en-
semble and give you that look of
perfection, this year's spring jew-
elry fills the bill.
Necklaces will be the first

choice in jewelry designs as pins
get lost on frilly prints. Pastel
colored pearls will be tops on the
list to add richness to dainty cot-
tons.
Necklaces of pearl bead clus-
ters embroidered with delicacy
and tied with a velvet bow in the
back will be fashionable with low
neck blouses.
Pearl chokers with a free-fall-
ing strand following the neckline
of the dress and clasped by a
chatelaine will also be popular.
Tinted square-cut rhinestones will
be worn a great deal with lively
spring prints.
Many of the new creations in
jewelry are designed to fit the
shape of the spring necklines.
There will be necklaces to be worn
away from the neck for off-shou-
lder dresses, the choker effect for
round low necklines, the squared
necklace for low square neck
dresses, and the choker with sev-
eral free-falling strands for the
V neckline. All will accentuate
the cut of the neckline.

FASHION EXPERTS are taking
great strides forward this sea-
son in prescribing a wide. variety
of shoe styles and colors for formal
and casual wear.
The most noted change is the
use of gold and silver kid sandals
which are not only exciting for
evening wear but acceptable this
season for daytime when worn
with the long ballerina skirt and
new spring prints.

and vividly-colored wedgees
will take the lead. The baby doll
toe and wedge heel will add an in-
teresting note to the ever-popular
spectator pump.
Glittering gold or silver clips
can give the plainest pump the
"new look-." An eye-catching bow
or gilt feather ornament will dress
up basic opera pumps for special
occasions.
Violet, green or red kid flats
with ankle straps and square
toes will add the right sparkle
for casual cottons and prints. A
new version of an old favorite is
the ballet slipper in metallic
kids with an ankle strap added.
In shoe fashions this spring its
up to the individual. The wide va-
riety of colors and designs gives
women the advantage of suiting
