BEADS, SCARVES POPULAR:
Accessories Accent Chemise Look

Daily--seoirge Keeer
POINTED TOES
. . . with trim

By ANN EICHLER
Relaxed, loose and lazy is the
keynote for accessories this spring,
designed to accent the new che-
mise look.
This year's costume jewelry
centers around beads, beads, and
more beads. In many colors,
shapes and lengths, they are just
the right thing to wear with the
new chemise.
Bibs, lariats and ropes follow
the fashion line and continue the
new emphasis on color. Both solid
color and mixed color strands are
being worn this spring, as well as
beads in pearl, crystal, stone and
plastic.
Pastels Dominate
Pastels of all shades will com-
pliment any match or contrasting
outfit. In style this year are such
colors as apricot, bone, tangerine,
lime peel, willow green, shrimp
pink and azure blue. The conven-
tional red and clear and chalk
white are also popular again this
year.
Long rope beads for chemises are
being worn single strand or
doubled. Chokers for more tailored
wear come in varied lengths and
colors. Bracelets on each hand or
many on an arm are the fashion
for short sleeve or s l e e v e l e s s
dresses.
Pins this year are found from
the back of the dress to the top,
of the glove. Earrings again in-
clude the fashionable hoop and
pendant styles, with the popular
button earrings for the chemise.
Scarves and Glovse
Both scarves and gloves in gay7
and colorful prints, pastels, or
polka dots can be found to goj

down. Heel heights are no excep-
tion to this rule.
Although the chemise style is
partially responsible for the low-
ering of heel heights, the accep-
tance of the lower heel is mainly
due to its comfort. ,Since lower
heeled shoes are now being made
as stylish as those with three-
inch heels, modern women who
are constantly on their feet are
reluctant to part with the com-
fort that smaller heels afford.
The toeless, heelless, shoeless
shoes which.dominated last year's
market are being rapidly de-.
throned. This year the classic
opera pump reigns supreme. How-
ever, this basic shoe has under-
gone many modifications. Pointed
toes are becoming increasingly
more acceptable and increasing-
ly more pointed.
In addition, there is a marked
tendency toward a greater use
of straps and other trimmings.
Pumps are now daintily adorned
with little dressmaker . touches
such as pleatings, buckles and
small perforations.'
Pump Variations.
T-straps are important modi-
fications of the opera pump and,
are featured on both dressy andI
tailored shoes. Low instep ties1
also provide variations. This sil-
houette gives a stretched look to
the leg as the tie falls less than an
inch above the throat of the shoe.
Colors for late summer and fall
shoes are definitely richer, warmer'
and more subtle than last year's
sombre shades. Because browns
are abundant in the types of'
leathers they comeiin and be-
cause of their versatility, we must
consider them as the first color
family as to total volume.
Red previously was nothing
more than an emotional shade,
and women bought red shoes with
misgivings. Now, however, red has
become a basic color.
Dark Horse Color
Blue is also a basic shade and
always manages to retain its ap-
peal. Green, however, has never
before been considered as a par-
ticularly important shade. This
year, green is becoming more and
more popular and could prove to
be the dark horse color for late
summer and fall.
There are a number of interest-
ing types of leathers that will be
found in late summer and fall
shoes. Popular leathers will be
silken colored suedes, grained and
polished textures, alligator, bold-
ly printed furs, patent leathers
and glove tanned l9athers.
The most popular shades for
summer will be, as usual, white
and other pastel shades such as
pink and pale blue. A new style
which should gain in popularity
during the summer months is the
fabric shoe. These shoes appear in
bright prints and multi-colored
pin stripes.

FINISHING TOUCH - Bright accessories complete any spring
outfit. Gay scarves or pins can alter a dress or suit for that special
occasion. Matching or contrasting gloves and purses complete the
outfit.

Ever-popular white gloves are or cotton gloves come in white,
still in fashion for that cool, crisp dark, print and the new shades
of colors. Novelty styles in a va-
riety of colors and color combina-
tions are again big sellers.
For convertibles or visits to the
beach, the scarf with the built in
Ghead band is just the thing. Some
of these are manufactured in
$ awater-repellent materials.
Scarves used as fill-ins will be
popular in organza ,sheer, chiffon
and silks. They also match or
contrast the dress or suit - truly
n k !complimenting any outfit.
Neckwear News
News in neckwear is the collar

sweater styles. Other favorites to

wardrobe are the blouson, middy
tie and chemise' jackets and wes-
kits.'
The lean look to coordinate with
the chemise is the demand this
*spring in handbags. The size of

BRIGHT SCARVES' though the large, casual bag will
.useful and attractive still be popular.

Focus in fabrics for handbags
is on straws, laminates, fabrics,
quality leather and straws with
leather trims. The black patent is
also in style for summer wear.
Straw Bags for Beach
Decorated with flowers, shells
and designs in materials and
bangles, wicker and straw bags
are appropriate in varied sizes for
street or, beach wear.
Brief is the word for this' sea-
son's well-clad feet. Shoes seem
hardly to be there at all, featur-
ing slender straps and lower heels
to balance the shorter skirts. Gay
prints are blooming on shoe fab-
rics, in designs to match the dress.
The V-shaped tie is an import-
ant accessory. Measuring a full
72 inches tied around the waist,
it can also be tied low on a che-
mise dress. It comes in cotton with
silk organza lining.
Imitation flowers give a spring-
time touch to plain outfits. Add a
big cotton chrysanthemum or
sleek satin rose to the waistline;
or for a really attention-getting
note, pin it on the back at your
shoulder line.

JESSE-No sense landing here, Frank. All the Woolens are in BOX
STORAGE AT TROJAN.
FRANK-I thought storage was expensive.
JESSE-It used to be, but now ANYONE can have a GIANT BOX full
of woolens stored for only $4.95 AT TROJAN.
FRANK-Good Grief! Looks like we moths are in for one rough summer.
Just call and have your TROJAN DRIVER drop off a large storage
box. When you have filled it at your convenience, we will pick it up.
It will then be stored in Trojan's safe, air conditioned vault for $4.95
plus, of course, the regular cleaning charge.
