this season are the brown and
beige tones and shades of red and
navy. The perennial spring favor-
ite, black patent leather, is also
being shown widely.
A new innovation in the shoe
fashion world are the city flats
which provide both comfort and
style for the wearer. For cut and
polish they are the equal of opera
pumps, but the heels are one inch
slivers of leather. One' especially
good-looking pair of these flat
shoes come in flax-covered calf-

popular this season.
In the same material there are
a number of shoes in the brown
and beige tones ranging from ma-
hogany to light honey. One pair
in a curry corkette features small
buckles .at the vamp.
'Big' City Look
Featuring the "big" city look

The black patent leather pump'
takes on a new look this spring
as the patent is combined with
elasticized faille. This four ounce
wonder shoe fits the foot like a
Black patent leather has also
been made into a variey of other
styles with the high-heeled bare-
foot'sandel being very popular for
evening wear.
Although many of the ideas for
shoe fashions are imported from
all over the world, most of them
are born right here in the United
For example the baby-doll and
the wedge heel which enjoyed such
popularity several years ago came
from New York, the open-toe shoe
from Miami and casual footwear
from California.
Every shoe style is carefully
planned, sometimes as much as a
year or more before it appears in
the stores.

The big hat is making fashion1
hews this spring.
Most popular of the big hats of
this season is the new bumper or
tambourine shape. This style is
worn perfectly straight on the
head and usually covers the wear-
er's hairline, ending just a little
above the eyebrows.
This new forward look goes es-
pecially well with the narrow
straight line which is the sil-
houette for this spring. The big
wide hats are prettiest when worn
with unbroken lines and big, plain
Many chapeaus this season make
use of the popular colors of navy
and the beige and brown tones.
The basic colors of black and white
are also featured again this year.
One new combination which is
fast gaining in popularity is that
of beige and white. The ever-popu-
lar yellows and reds are also good
at this time.
Straw is the principle fabric
being used, but this year it lacks
the flower trimmings which were
so prominent last spring. Milan
and a new-comer, balibuntl, are
the straws which are taking the
lead in hat designs.
Hat trimmings this spring are of
a variety of fabrics. Very smart


are the sheer materials such as
tulle, chiffon, maline and various

types of veiling. Grosgrain and
other types of ribbon are also used
a great deal..
One especially attractive bump-
er hat in light gray balibuntl straw
features a band of chiffon in tones
ranging from white to charcoal;
In addition to the new bumper
hat, the large cartwheel and sailor


still remain at the top of the hat
fashion parade. For those women
who prefer smaller hats, the pill
box and beanie styles are available
in a variety of colors and designs.
As to the wearing of hats fash-
ion experts advise that in town a
hat be worn with street clothes
in the daytime.
Hats worn with dinner dresses
or suits are intended to remain in
place during the evening.
