Popular Storm Coat Warm, Smart, Thrifty;
Considered by College Women as Fine Buy


{ Cold weather, dry or damp, will
f still be h,-!re for many weeks, and
nothing is so important in a wom-
an's closet as a good warm coat.
The coat designed for stormy
weather that is snug, wind-resist-
ant, water-repellent, and of rea-
sonable price is the popular storm
plained that the classic storm coat
is less expensive and a better value
than a few seasons ago because of
its greater popularity and the im-
proved mass production method.
The trim lines and cozy style
have long been recognized as a
fine buy for a cold campus by
college women. More and more
working city women are realiz-
ing the coat's value.
Not all storm coats look alike,
but they all have a specially warm
lining. Coat fullness varies this
year with one style resembling
that of the 1920's. The slimming

boy's coat.
ble-breasted and have a big warm
coachman collar. A belt usually
cinches in the waistline, but some
styles have only a belted back. The
full coat styles can be worn loose
or belted.
A special value is a full-length
heavy rayon gabardine storm

coat lined with alpalca and a
mouton collar. Other details of
the style are knitted wristlets
under buttoned cuffed sleeves,
water repellent fabric, and a
very wide color range.
The new corduroy storm coat
with heavy quilted wool and rayon
lining has been especially appeal-
ing to thebusiness girl. It is dou-
ble-breasted with half belt.

A crease-resistant gabardine
coat is also available with side-
tucked waistline.
Reversible coats for storthy
weather come in various styles.
One "teddy bear" coat is navy blue

Will Introduce
Creative Twist
Edith Head, Paramount dress
designer, has introduced a new
budgetary evening creation, the
dress with "nine lives."
Cost of evening apparel has long
been of concern to thrifty coeds
and business women alike. Today
a self-belted strapless black taffeta
short evening dress with cuffed
bodice and pocketed sheath cut
skirt may serve as th basis of a
nine dress wardrobe.
Accessories make each version so
completely different from the
original it seems that one actually
possesses nine different evening
Panels of orange an topaz taf-
feta may be attached at the belt
to convert the simple basic into a
chic creation. Arms may be slipped
through a reversible stole of
orange faced with topaz joined
together at the ends.
Big dances call for extra trim-
mings. Yards and yards of tulle
attached to the belt and flowing
down the back, swirl around the
slender silhouette of the original.
