Fashions for Skiers Revealed

Tiny Flowers,
Jewelry Adorn

Christmas vacation plans bring
thoughts of skiing --- and ski
clothes - to the minds of many
sports enthusiasts.
The woman who wants to throw
conservatism to the winds -- the
icy winds of the ski slopes - may
choose a parka of canary yellow
nylon seersucker or she may choose
garnet ski pants to be worn with a
brightly printed reversible top, lin-
ed in black.
Shy may decide on a cotton pop-
lin parka with colorful stripes and
straight lines. If she likes to wear
heavy ski sweaters, she may wear a
snor 6 lared bolero-type jacket
over them.
The woman who finds her ski-

ing limited to a brief twoweeks
out of the year will find that a
flared Byrd cloth jacket, suitable
for skiing can be worn over skirts
and sweaters throughout the sea-
son.
Nylon is one of favorite mater-
ials for parkas this season. It is
water repellent, dries quickly and
olds small so that it takes up lit-
tle room in a suitcase.
A suede-yoked plaid shirt of
cotton flannel is ideal for wear
under a ski jacket.
The woman who is planning her
ski wardrobe may decide to top
it off with a very wide brass-
buckled belt to wear with a color-
ful ski sweater.

Whether the boy friend's re-
straining protests at talk of cut-
ting hair were heeded-according
to the Freudian explanation this
is merely a natural male instinct-
of if the locks were shorn regard-
less, there are various pleasing
ways in which to adorn the
tresses.
With only a small corsage, or a
few inexpensive yards of veiling or
even a trinket from the jewelry
case an especially attractive and a
distinctly non-common-place hair-
do can be created for the coming
festivities of the Christmas and
New Year holidays.
WHEN USING flowers in short
hair, the side hair can be pulled
back away from the face and a
small corsage used for a fetching
back interest.
On the front hair could be
combed into bangs from a side
part with the rest of the hair
brushed into back curls and
adorned by flowers or rhine-
stone combs on either the sides
or the very back of the head.
A strand of pearls entwined into
the especially long hair makes an
eye-catching evening headdress.
The hair waves away from the
face and falls to the shoulders.
AND FOR THAT eveninfi chig-
non one and one half yards of 15
inch veiling can be used around
the bun and the ends tied into a
wide bow.
When that dinner and danc-
ing date comes around, one yard
of 15 inch veiling can be placed
over the top of the head and
tied in back. Hold it in place
with pretty and colorful hatpins.
This can be used for any length
of hair.
Another style for the strictly
'long hairs' is soft waves beginning
from a center part which goes
down the back of the head.

Paris, New York Shows Emphasize More
Feminine Afternoon Dress for Spring Wear

* * * *

Beauty, Gem Rarity Important
To Buyer in Selecting Stones

By PAT BROWNSON
Recent Paris and New York
fashion shows have painted a
pleasing picture in afternoon
dresses for spring, with emphasis
placed on femininity-styles are
symmetrical and slim.
Daytime hemlines have been es-
tablisher 1312 inches from the
floor, with a gentle easing for the
later hours. Leading the color par-
ade is navy in a lively shade, a
blue brighter than navy, grayish-
blue offering a new note, and
beige.
A NEW YORK show featured
cornflower blue chiffon pleated
in a skirt and edged with sheer
black lace to characterize the soft
femininity stressed. Taffetas ap-
peared with skirts draped into
bows at the hip or side-swinging
drapes. Boleros discreetly covered
low-cut decolletages making taf-
fetta street-length dresses suitable
for the cocktail or informal din-
ner hours.
Silk prints followed a trend
for small and vague patterns.
One dull green, yellow and
orange pure silk was made en-
tirely of pleats falling from
shoulder to hem and held with
a wide wrapped sash at the
waist.
Cottons, linens, crepes and shan-
tungs will be seen in sunny lands.
Vivid green accented a black and
white checked gingham dress. Em-
bossed cotton pique in a button-
down-the-front model had an in-
teresting new surface.
* * *
ONE PARISIAN collection of
street frocks displayed skirts as
narrow as possible in black or gray
mixtures. The slender silhouette
was retained with a two-tiered
peplum in front only, or an elong-
ated pocket flap swinging around
one hip. Pockets were set high.
Bodices closed on one shoulder
with a simple fold or by one
large angular wing pierced by
a white linen tailored bow. By-
ronic white linencollars f lank-
ing high square necklines top-
ped softly gathered bodices.
Other interesting necklines were
found in a famous Parisian ex-
hibit. A low round, almost shep-
herdess neckline, filled in with a
pinkish orange taffeta cravat,
helped make one simple gray wool
frock distinctive.

A SIGNIFICANT trend in after-
noon dresses was seen in the dra-
matic side-swept skirts or un-
pressed skirts folded over to the
center front or back. Several cre-
ations were made of unrelieved.

One of the most cherishedj
Christmas gifts may be a gem
stone. This is a gift which will
last and which will always carryj
with it the memory of the giver.
In our society choosing a gem
stone should be based on many
criteria. Our basis of the value
of a gem is dependent on the
rarity of the stone and on its
beauty.
*, * *
HOWEVER, there are still some
people who refuse to wear the
beautiful stone, the opal, because
they believe that it will bring them
bad luck.
Perfection is the first thing to

to the longer lengths-and
its fabric quality, DU PONT Nylon
and Rayon Satin, guarantees
long-lasting wearability.

look for in choosing any gem
stone. Color and cut are very
important too. Size is more ob-
vious to the average buyer but
is not as important as these
first three.
By perfection, clarity and the
absence of flaws is meant. A stone
with cloudy spots or with black
specks called carbon spots is not
as valuable as one lacking such
flaws.
* * *
THE COLOR can make a cer-
tain stone more desirable.- Usual-
ly a colorless stone with a bluish
tint is preferred and seems to
look richer.
Some of the precious colorless
stones are white sapphire, to-
paz, and diamond. However, no
other stone glows like the dia-
mond, with gleams of hidden
fire.
A perfectly cut stone is not ir-
regular and has no scratches on its
many facets.

University coeds have proved
this year to be way ahead of the
styles in dress footwear.
Fashion magazines throughout
the country are now emphasizing
both dressy flats and low heeled
dress shoes as the must in style.
However, campus women al-
ready buy 75 per cent of their
dressy shoes from the flat heeled
variety and only 25 per cent are
medium or high heeled.
NATURALLY COEDS do this
because of Ann Arbor's walking
necessity more than anything, but
the important thing is that there
will be an amazing increase in
style varieties of the flat heeled
dress shoe.
Other popular trends besides
the increased stress on the dress
flatie pertain to the toe, which
will be strictly a closed affair;
the single sole instead of the
platform and the decided inter-
est in narrow straps in the shoe
design.
Bright red is definitely on the
march alongside blue calf as the
colors of the season. The color
parade will probably begin early
this year with local stores display-
ing reds and blues before Christ-
mas vacation.
* * *
AN INCREASED importance will
also be laid on buying shoes with
other matching accessories of the
same color and, material. Even-
tually fashion experts predict that
women will be buying shoes to
match a particular outfit in their
wardrobe.
One of the particular style
trends in the dress shoe pertains
to the ankle strap. All over the
country women are going over
to the instep strap, but in Mich-
igan alone the ankle strap is
overwhelmingly preferred, both
in low and high heels.
A local shoe dealer believed this
to be true because Michigan
women believe theankle strap to
be still the most flattering. He
was not too anxious to see the
other become popular in this vicin-
ity.
BOTH LOW AND high heeled
shoes are - going to be showing a

great deal of originality in the
workings of slender straps. Thin
lines of materials will intertwine
across the vamp or face of the
shoe and around the ankle in num-
erous ways. 'These slender straps
first became popular in Paris a
year ago, reached New York this
summer and are just now appear-
ing in the midwest.
Canasta, which came before
the public first as a card game
is now appearing as one of the
favorite colors. Canasta is a
' deep rouge shown in calf and
made especially to be worn with
suits.
Balenciaga is another up-and-
coming color in calf for suit
pumps and low heels. It ranges
from an off-white to champagne
to the Kola family. The Kola fam-
family refers to a bright tan
shade.
* * *
GREENS, PURPLES and espec-
ially novelty colors are definitely
on the decline and are now being
marked down in local stores.
Opera pumps in black and
brown suede are still very good
for the remaining cold months.
As spring comes around, how-
ever, we will be seeing a good
deal of patent, with closed toes
and an open face.
Brown and white spectators,
which were once an absolute ne-
cessity in any woman's wardrobe
will be rarely seen this spring.
Coeds greatly prefer an all white
dressy heeled shoe or else a casual
flatie.
Spectators were considered as
too much of a "sporty inbetween"
by one local shoe dealer.
