. Informal Clothes
i: In Detail-'
"By ORMA I. McfLTTRE I '
Ther-are- really two kinds of
Informal outfits worn at collage.
There is the simple informal
'which Is appropriate tor unelabor
ate dinners, cbnrch : etc., then
. there Is the Quite formal. Informal
dresses that correspond with what
." the fashion magazines call, din
ner" or "Sunday night dresses.,";
These last named are worn to in
formal house dances and to Im
portant dinners. - .i : f
Fashion authorities say that
vetvet is Tery good for informal,
this year, but it you are wise you
will choose a more durable f a-
- brie - for; your r simple Informal
. wear.' Satin and canton crepe are
both, equally as ! good this year,
and both have qualities that make
them ideal for a dress that you
will want to slip on when you
-would like to look nice; but aren't
bent on making a big impression.
Crepe Is another practical ma
terial for this purpose, though. not
quite as; fashionable thl3 season.
In length-these dresses should be
about It or 12 inches from the
floor, so: you can see that there
is tery Uttl difference, on' that
' - score, from your campus clothes.
Lhave used the word "simple"
In e5mnection with these dresses.
Thai does not ; mean that they,
have to be plain: and uninteresting
looking. ! With the numbers of
- charming sleeve treatments and
collars, a simple informal dress
can be a thing of beauty and a
joy for quite a long time. Just be
onrefnl not to have too much of
a stood thing. - L -
Beads! may be worn unless the
neckline' Is elaborate. . in wnicn
case'they detract rather than add
to the effectiveness of your cos
tume. Earrings are quite correct
(although never worn with a
necklace .but save your long,
, droopey ones for your formal, and
decide in i favor of jrather, incon
spicuous "rings." After H, you'H
Defer be criticised for not weari
Ing jewelry but you might cause
a good deal of comment by wear
ing too much. :
Hose of a dark harmonizing
shade should be worn with pumps
' or low-cut ties.
With your informal frocks you
will have: to wear-a dress coat.
' This Is something that you really
should splurge yourselt on, as
much as ! possible, for - cheap
looking coat spoils the nicest
dress, and you'll wear this coat
not emly with your simple Inform
ala but your most elaborate ones
as well. . The color depends on
that of your wardrobe, of course,
but it is wise not to go in for
bright colors unless you can af
ford: more than one dress coat.
Rough finished materials are Tery
good this year, and trims of beav
er,' .raccoon, fox or leopard are
" popular. ' i . ' i -:
Then you can wear the new hat
with the cunning feather, which
you were so tempted to wear to
- classes but didn't. I hope your
new hat will not be too "differ
ent" for ; stylists say that only
the cheaper types of hats will be
extreme, and the expensive ones,
modifications of the new mode.
. By the way. the very newest hats
are worn tipped directly over the
nose, If you , have a great deal
of stamina you -might be one of
the .pioneers of the custom. v
