cottons in prints and stripes are
also flattering to the thin figure.
To achieve that sleek, slim look,
there is the sheath style of the
knitted maillot or the lastex hour-
The maillot cut is the new all-
in-one foundation designed to slen-
derize the figure. This same prin-
ciple has been applied to swim
suits. Through its built-in founda-

The maillot manifests itself in
many different styles There is the
V-necked straight bottom suit
made of orlon elastic yarn and
which turns this bathing suit into
a lovely outfit for evening cocktail
wear. If the evening is warm and
ends with a dip in the moonlight,
you can just remove your skirt and
you're all dressed to go for a swim.
If you are planning to utilize
your spring vacation for a trip to
far off places, you will be looking
for some more exotic styles in
One of the smartest styles for
swimming in the waters of foreign
shores is the new X-line neckline
suit. This polished cotton has two
ribboned belts encircling the waist
and can be worn with a hood or
beret for that "intriguing" look.
Whether at home or abroad,
coeds will have their choice of
swim suits' that vary from frilly
cottons to sheath sophisticates.
Topping a swimsuit outfit are
smart bathing caps. Caps vary
highly decorated with sequins and
pearls. A cap to match a swimsuit
is a must.
Newest'are those which impro-
vise hairdos with false hair. Thus,
surah will have entwined yellow
roses,. sprinkled field flowers or
varied shades of primroses im-
printed on their brims and folds.
Smartness is the theme with
profile cuts and deep cloches.
Very few veils will be seen high-
lighting the trend toward accen-
tuation of the face. The different
shapes will also be complimentary
to the many hair styles of today.
Leaning cloches and other pro-
file hats are decked with ribbons
even wide grosgrain which hug
the brim tied in a knot, flat bow,
Black straw, cut for close wear
will be found spattered with
rhinestones or jeweled pin. The
last material accentuation is the
trend in matching hat to outfit.
This season's hats have person-
ality, originality, and .flair which
renders simple the task of finding
that "special" one.

rhinestones studding the bodice.
In stripes, prints, solids, the

hats are taking on the look of
simplicity, which is most flatter-

Flowers in some form or anoth-
er are always in order for spring
hats. This year the milliners have
changed from the over-used
theme of bunched violets and
daisies and put their flowers right
in the hat fabric.
On a black silk shantung bright,
full roses can be found. The hat
may be in the shape of a mobcap,
